Artist imgSíomónn Wan is a recording/performing artist based in Leeds. Driven by his cheeky playful spirit and a genuine wish to share, he channels his mind into a fusion of effervescent tunes and quirky dance moves. With an almighty band and crew, his show is a must-see for gig-goers.

He released his first synth-pop single Tumbleweed early in April and is about to release his second called You Son of a Bitch on the 2nd of June. Two days later, he will be headlining at Eiger Studios in Leeds, along with fantastic artists Eleanor Reynolds and Gertie.

Performing with a devoted band and talented dancers, he is living out his dream and cannot wait to share the fun with Yorkshire.

3 words to describe you:
Lovely, loving, loved

3 words to describe your music:
Silly, jolly, Chinese

If it does, how does your heritage impact your art?
My music is dressed in Western genres' clothes, but the DNA within is constructed by Chinese music before the 90's.

Chinese tunes can be extremely mellow and sentimental, depicting the affectionate inner world of the Chinese, which dates back to the very beginning of our civilisation. In such music, I feel the pull to love, kindness and unity that is inside all beings. It is my genuine wish that my songs could evoke the same memory and serve the minds that are predestined to hear them.

If you could collaborate with anyone, who and why?
Teresa Teng. China and Japan would love to hear her sing again.

Your next career/music goal:
Release another 3 singles in the coming months and an EP in October.

Top 3 go to songs/artists:
Teresa Teng - 但願人長久
Chyi Yu - 橄欖樹
Michelle Pan - 天天天藍

Words you live by:
I am because we are.
