小树 “Little Tree” ::: Interviewed

Tell me about your early life – where were you born and where did you grow up?

Do you think your early life has influenced your music?

I was born in Bengbu, Anhui Province. I came to Hangzhou when I was 17. Bengbu is not a very cultural city, whereas Hangzhou is. Therefore, I cherish this cultural environment and have been working hard to achieve something in music. I think my experiences have shaped my music in addition to the fact I am quite a sensitive person.

How long have you lived in Hangzhou and why did you come here? Can you tell me what you like and don’t like about the city?

I have been living in Hangzhou for 10 years. I came here because of a dream. I dreamt about West Lake, then I just decided to come here.  I like the city’s pace, not very fast, but not too slow. I can control the pace of my life easily but I don’t like the traffic jams in Hangzhou!

Tell me about the different music projects you’ve been involved in.

I have been involved in many projects over the years. I have formed partnerships with other artists, and even with Converse.

How has your life changed as a result of being on the TV show ‘Sing My Song’ and how has it stayed the same?

This experience made me see my future more clearly, what I wanted to achieve and how to make it come true. But, more importantly, it afforded me the opportunity for personal growth.

Tell us what music you think our readers should listen to, where they can find it and what you have planned for the future, including new releases, tours/festivals/gigs.

I recommend using the Baidu Yun music app. I like Bon Iver, he is my favorite artist. My current plan is to release a new album in the latter half of the year.

 

Five Favorites

This is always hard to do but if you HAD to choose tell us your five favorite albums.

It is hard to recommend five favorite albums so I will recommend five favorite artists:

Bon Iver, Ben Howard, Envy, Damien Rice, and Toe

能否谈一下你的早期生活 – 在哪里出生,哪里成长? 你觉得你早期的生活对于你的音乐有何影响?

我在安徽蚌埠出生,17岁时我离开了家乡来到杭州。蚌埠市一个文化氛围不是很浓的城市,所以我一直很珍惜,一直努力汲取,这可能让我的音乐变得更加感性吧。

你在杭州生活了多久?为什么来杭州?能否告诉我你喜欢这座城市的地方以及不喜欢的地方?

到现在,在杭州生活已经10年了。当初是因为一个梦,梦见了西湖,就毅然决然地来了杭州。我喜欢杭州的节奏,它不快也不慢,所有的节奏都可以自己把握。要说不喜欢,那就是堵车了。

是否参于过或还在参与一些音乐项目?

那么多年,真的参与了很多项目。有和艺术家的合作,也有和Converse的合作。自己还做过“音乐日记”的个人计划。

自你参加了“中国好歌曲”,你的生活发生了哪些改变?

会让我更加明确未来的道路,也会看清楚一些。重要的是自身的成长。

能否向我们的读者推荐一些音乐,以及在哪里可以找到这些音乐?你对未来的打算?(发新专辑?巡演?演唱会?)

我最近都在用网易云音乐。我强烈推荐大家去听Bon Iver,我个人特别喜欢的乐队。近期计划是下半年要发行我个人的新唱片。

五张最喜欢的专辑

我知道这很难,但是如果我们只能让你推荐5张专辑,你会推荐哪五张?以及这5张专辑对于你的重要性?

我就推荐五个音乐人吧:Bon Iver, Ben Howard, Envy, Damien Rice, Toe

因篇幅限制,以上所列的每个问题的回答请不要太长,谢谢!
