  • Recently, young people who love music are asking, “Who is TANK?”

  In S.H.E’s “Don’t Wanna Grow Up” album, released last November, the two songs “Not Be Your Friend” and “Nice Person Has Nice Hug” are written by “TANK.” The theme and end songs of  “KO One,” one of the most popular soap operas, are also sung by “TANK.” Especially, the end song “Give Me Your Love” immediately became the hottest ringtone in youngster’s cell phones. Although Lee Hom Wang and Cyndi Wang released their albums at the same time, this song stayed at top 3 in the ranking of ringtone download for more than 2 months! The name “TANK” became one of the hottest search terms in search engine Webs. Subsequently, in “Ci Jian Sia Tien San,” the prime soap opera on CTV, people saw “TANK” again in the end song “Sango Love.” This song combined Western rock with Chinese opera. This name had inspired young people’s curiosity, “Who on earth is TANK? He can sing and write songs. Who in the world is he?”

  Therefore, when TANK put his creations on his own blog and asked other bloggers to vote for them, thousands and thousands of people crazily logged onto the blog and evaluated the songs. All the compliments and encouragement surprised his music company. The staff said that they had never seen a singer who hasn’t released any albums can receive so many responses. He even had fans in China to set up his fanclub already! TANK seems a powerful volcano, waiting to explode.

  • About TANK

  24 years old. Good at music, guitar, piano and dancing. Possess nearly-perfect strength and experience. His ability of music creation has been recognized. Many companies and singers are asking him for songs. We can say that he is a super treasure after Lee Hom Wang, David Tao and Jay Chou. He had his first song “How to Forget”, by Vic Chou, at the age of 21. After that, he wrote songs for Ambrose Hui, Will Pan, K-ONE, Z-Chen Chang, S.H.E, and “KO One” soundtrack.
  TANK’s talent in music is inborn. He has been intoxicated with music since Christian chorus at pre-school. In elementary school, he learned playing guitar from the church and started listening to a great deal of music, from church hymns to pop music. In middle school, he started to sing his own creations. In high school, he had a band with classmates and was the vocal in the band. He learned playing drums and Bass from the band members. Later on, he learned playing piano with no teachers. He started to sing at folk pubs for his interest and allowance while being going to high school. His talented performance made him not look like a new singer’ instead, he had some fans chasing after him. They built his fan Websites. During that time, he met Mr. Sin Huang. Mr. sin Huang liked his voice a lot and as a result, became his agent. He tought TANK profession in music, creation and composition. TANK continuously published his music online and released EPs on the Internet. Many music lovers visited his Website and distributed the songs to China.
  His extraordinary talent surprised H.I.M boss at a meeting of his Demo. The boss asked people to look for him. The key point of signing him was TANK’s powerful performance on other singers’ songs and emitted his own style at a KTV. He sang every song in his own style regardless of Lee Hom Wang or David Tao. At the end of singing David Tao’s “Wang Ba Dan,” He jumped onto the table and finished the song. His cuteness and craziness amazed everyone. At that moment, H.I.M vice president Shih-Yu Liu, who used to successfully promote Chyi Chin, Valen Hsu, Power Station, Ten Ping Hung, S.H.E and Z-Chen Chang, decided to sign this young guy! Thus, TANK joined H.I.M in 2005, and his first album “Fighting” was released on February 24, 2006.

* Selected 10 songs out of 300  Hard to decide  A “Close Game” in the company already
Use “brain” to perfectly combine Hip-hop, R&B, rock and Chinese music

TANK had created more than 300 songs in the past few years. The company spent half a year making a decision, not to mention the voting from his fans. What’s more, he was still having new songs during that period of time, which put the company in dilemma of choosing songs. The motivation of each song was intriguing, and the production of the songs was from everyday life. For instance, “Sniper” was created after he watched the movie “Enemy at the Gates.” He felt it was cool to be a sniper. “Sango Love” was created after he finished an online game. He felt that it was so poor to be a soldier. “Support You to Death” was created after he went to eat burgers with his friend who had just broken up with the girlfriend.
  These scenarios often happen to young people in the GAME generation. After a lot of discussion and debate, we finally selected 12 songs out. The style is comprehensive and combines all the music of which young people are in favor, such as Hip-hop, Rock, R&B and ancient Chinese music. The lyrics are about the love, friendship and dream of young people. The reasons why the title of this album are that “Fighting” is that this album gives people a taste of an online game and that TANK wanted to use his music as a weapon to establish his own world. He also wanted to encourage young people to look for the way of existence, fighting for their own future and dream.

  • Inspired by the online game Sango Discard super heroes Write “Sango Love” for unknown soldiers in the war era

  TANK is from the GAME generation; the inspiration of his creation is from online games, movies, cartoons and comics. The first promotion song “Sango” was from his favorite game Sango. When it comes to Sango era, people always talked about famous heroes and girls. However, how about ordinary soldiers? Those who were forced to leave their family and lover due to the wars? Those unknown young lives? Did they want to say something? Thus, TANK wrote this song at a very fast pace. Loving rock music, he mixed rock with Chinese elements in this song. The most popular music style, Chinese opera, was also put in this song. When the company heard his demo singing in the female way of Chinese opera, they were surprised to find that this young guy also knew Chinese classical music!

  • Compliments from every where Became spokesman for a super game “GuildWars Online” Asian version before the album was released

  TANK beat many other singers to become the spokesman for “GuildWars Online” before releasing his own album! As a super fan of online games, TANK immediately created a song for this online game! H.I.M said, “TANK’s song was even sent to the headquarters in America, got approval from the CEO and game team, and then became the theme song for the area of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macaw! The CEO in America admired the song a lot. He even wanted his daughter to sing this song with TANK! This plan was cancelled because the album was about to be released!” TANK said, “I, personally, is a super fan of online games! There are two sings related to online games in this album! I used to play an online game for straight 12 hours… I was so tired! This time, I am picked to be the spokesman. I am super happy!”
  TANK also described his goal, “I hope my music ability can reach a certain level one day!” Although he had received a lot of support due to “Not Be Your Friend” and “Nice Person Has Nice Hug” in S.H.E’s album “Don’t Wanna Grow Up,” the theme songs of CTV’s primetime dramas “Ci Jian Sia Tien Shan” and “Tien Wai Fei Sian,” the theme song of the soap opera “KO One,” and a high order rate on “Give Me Your Love” at KTV, he still reminds himself to reach his goal. “Eminem and David Tao are my goal! Their attitude and quality in music really touch me! I hope I can gain the same compliment one day!”
