Shu Mei -||- Jazz Canvas – Asian Memories – [Artistes International, 2010]
Shu Mei’s rising star shows no sign of letting up. Since graduating from the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music, she has embarked on a journey that transcends diverse music genres – classical, pop, ethnic, fusion, jazz and Latin. As a much sought-after soloist and ensemble musician, Shu Mei’s energetic performances have won her kudos from both the classical and non-classical world.
Shu Mei has emerged as the violinist of choice for many regional and local artistes. In 2005, she has had the opportunity to perform as a soloist to celebrate bilateral Singapore-Malaysia ties in front of 30,000 people at the Penang Indoor Stadium. She has also been invited to perform with renowned jazz diva Marina Xavier at the Jakarta Jazz Festival and Penang Jazz Festival. Her association as a member of the ethnic fusion group Hybrid, swing group Goodfellas and latin-pop group San Nikkis provided the experience to expand and develop her range of musical instincts.
In recognition of her valuable musical influence, Shu Mei is currently an endorser of the Yamaha Silent Electric String instruments.
Her prolific accomplishments as a performer are matched by her relentless drive to share her music knowledge and groom the next talent. In 2008, she was awarded the Singapore Spirit of Enterprise for her influential contributions to music education for the young.
Shu Mei’s album, Jazz Canvas ~ Asian Memories was released in June 2010. Jazz Canvas is a collection of infectious Asian melodies and original compositions infused with classical ideas and jazz interpretation. It’s a celebration of Shu Mei’s uncompromising mission to bridge the music world that is the East and West.
