Gary Chaw is a Golden Melody Award-Winning RnB Singer-Songwriter in the mandarin music business. He is born on July 10th , 1979. He was born in Kota Belud , Sabah , Malaysia , and has lived in Canada and New Zealand when receiving his different levels of education. He studied at the University of Auckland , majoring in Architecture before leaving to realise his dream of becoming a singer.
He entered the Malaysian singing competition "Astroquest" , but unfortunately did not win. After releasing an album in Malaysia which did not receive much success , Chaw moved to Taiwan and was met with much difficulty before he caught a break after being signed to Rock Records for his unique vocals.
In 2006 , he released his 2nd studio album which was extremely well received by the public , mainly because of his hit rendition of Karyn White's <Superwoman>. This caught the attention of the public and gained him many fans and supporters . Not only this , his 3rd album , <Superman> also earned him a name for his soulful renditions of his R n B ballads , such as the K-hit , <betrayal>. In 2008 , with the release of his 4th album , <Super Sunshine> , he won a number of awards at the Prestigious Golden Melody Awards , including the coveted Best Mandarin Male Singer award.
He has had continued success with his music , after having a concert in 2008 , <Welcome To My World > , and his current 2011 <sensations > concert. His <Supermarket> album , released in 2009 received great reviews and has been deemed his "best album yet" by the likes of Aaron Kwok. He has also released a album late 2010 titled <Back In Control> , after his much-publicised Brawl with Hong Kong Singer Justin Lo. He has since quit drinking and announced his change for the better , following his marriage to Stylist Wu Su-Ling and the birth of his son , Joe , and daughter , Grace.
Not much is known about his 2011 album , but it is due to be released...sometime. :)
