Hong Kong, Hong Kong (1982 – present)

Sandy Lam (林憶蓮) In the music scene in Asia, especially to those who used to listen to radio from mid-80s and on in Hong Kong, Sandy Lam is a name equivalent to transformation, perfection, hard work, feminine, and talent.

Her career began as a part-time DJ at Commercial Radio Hong Kong in 1982, in which she got an unique nick name 611 (6+1+1=8, in Cantonese ‘8’ means being talkative and always questioning about gossips and other topics). Sandy joined SONY in 1983 and her debut in her Chinese name Lam Yik Lin was released in 1984. She rapidly became the most popular up-and-raising star. “Yik Lin”, her third album released in 1987, reached double platinum and that’s when her music career truly kicked off.

With heavy influences from Western music, Sandy’s music style started from cheesy Japanese teen pop to Light Jazz; and from there to R&B, Soul, or even Fusion. In fact, she is considered the only Hong Kong female singer with the best ad-libs. She has 27 full studio albums in Cantonese, Mandarin, English and Japanese, and adding other EPs, live recordings, compilations and co-operations, there is more than 80 or more on the list.

Unlike many other singers in Hong Kong, audience recognizes Sandy as a true musician/performer, rather than an entertainer. You don’t find shocking make-up or extreme outfits from her; it is her pure voice which captured everyone’s heart. She rather spends her time producing an album instead of attending meaningless shows. Her fans admire her as who she is and the willingness to improve herself vocally, and such improvement is well-know in the industry like a miracle.

    《IT WASN`T MEANT TO BE》最近时常被迷失在这首歌里边,不能自拔。。。 林忆莲的歌我听了快20年了,从《东方西方》《痴缠》等等歌,无不一直为她喝彩和感动。她太令人着迷了,歌声、形象、气质。。。

    看億蓮看到最好的地方是她作為一個歌手的成長和成熟。用她80 年代早期的作品和她現在的作品比,就可以看到她的進步。作為一個歌迷可以看到一個藝人的改變實在難得。
