Although this category is usually for up-and-coming artists , I've decided to put Genie Zhuo under this category because I do think that she has a lot of potential which has not yet been shown through her music. I once saw her singing on a Taiwanese vasriety show , and was blown away by her vocals. They sounded nothing like the sweet but simplistic vocals which are shown on many of her albums. Her 2011 album , <Just the way I am> shows a totally different side to her personality , and the style of song choice is also breathtakingly risky . Unlike other artists who promise a totally different side to their style , only to revert more or less back into their comfort zone in terms of the song style or choice , Genie Zhuo's new album risks it all as she takes on a TOTALLY new and might i say , brave take on her newest album , with the help of her record company and producers such as Golden Melody award-winning Adia . So , well done to Genie for finally taking the step that I as a fan have been waiting so long for , and I hope other fans will also appreciate her new works as much as I do!
P.S She is also a fairly talented lyricist and songwriter , with participation in almost all of her albums to some extent. I also hope that in the future she could be more involved in her albums. Someday , maybe someday... :)
