Susan Wong maintains a low-profile in her home town of Hong Kong yet is one of the best selling Hong Kong artists throughout South East Asia, and has a global following with releases in Japan, Germany, USA and Korea and a strong following in Brazil, Mexico and Spain. If you talk to many serious music fans in South East Asia they’ll give rave recommendations of Susan, who has been labeled as the ‘Queen of audiophile’, for her soft and sultry vocal style and laid-back music that has won the hearts of her wide and diverse legion of loyal fans. From those audiophile enthusiasts who enjoy listening to fine recordings to young listeners who adore the heart touching love songs the one thing that unites all her fans is their knowledge that they’ve discovered Asia’s best kept secret.
Susan Wong was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Sydney, Australia with her family at the age of seven. Musically inclined from a young age, she learned to play the piano at age five and later she also learned the violin.
Her first break in the music world was at the age of sixteen when her parents entered her for a singing contest in Sydney organized by the TVB. Susan won the competition and was offered a contract with music label. After much deliberation she decided that the time wasn’t right and instead returned to Australia to study at University. She pretty much just settled back into life at University and put aside any dreams of a music career.
After graduation, she returned to Hong Kong in 1997 to help run her family’s accounting business and gained CPA certification. One of her students who she was teaching piano was working for a Hong Kong independent label, and she asked the boss if they wanted a singer. Susan started recording her favourite English songs and made her first album ‘Close To You’.
When the album came out it in 2002, it was widely acclaimed and quickly became a favourite of music stores to play and the album was soon climbing up the sales charts in countries like Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. The six album releases since ‘Close To You’ have also enjoyed wide critical and commercial success establishing Susan as probably the No.1 selling English language female singer of her genre throughout South East Asia.
