Biography

Candy Lo (Traditional Chinese: 盧巧音; Simplified Chinese: 卢巧音; Pinyin: Lú Qiǎo Yīn; Cantonese: Lou4 Haau2 Yam1), born October 18, 1974 in Hong Kong, is a Cantopop singer-songwriter and actress. She has released 9 studio albums, 2 compilations, 1 live album and 1 EP with Sony Music to date.

Before going solo Candy Lo was the lead vocalist in Hong Kong based rock band Black & Blue. Before the band released any material, they used to perform independently of Black & Blue as a band as well.

In 1995 Black & Blue released their first record titled “Hope In Just One Day”. A year later, in 1996 they released their second album eponymously titled “Black & Blue”. The former contains songs mostly sung in English while the latter is completely in Cantonese. Stepping away from English and singing completely in Cantonese had been a decision made in concordance with their record label so as to make themselves more understandable to fans. Lo wrote the lyrics to their songs herself.

In 1998 Candy Lo was signed to Sony Music, thus starting her solo career. Her first release under Sony was an EP called “Unnecessary To Want…Perfect Can Be Terrible” (不需要…完美得可怕). For this record she won a Golden Award[1] in the same year. The style of this release continued on from her rock past with Black & Blue. In winter 1998, Candy released a second record called Miao, the title of which refers to Candy’s love of cats and how “they listen while people sometimes don’t.”[2] The album didn’t sell as much copies as expected. Producer Kubert Leung blamed the public, who “failed to grasp the concept of the album”.[3]

    她真的不是流行歌手(C-pop),《好心分手》只有一首,大家可要睁大眼睛看仔细了啊!她做了这么多的音乐实验,至少给人家一个实验音乐(Experimental)也好啊。多谢各位!!!!

    I like her voice, just ordered two albums "Evolution Theory" and "Color Release" - looking forward to listening to them. I've only heard "L" and "Upclose Candy Lo" so far but enjoy both.

    《天演论》思想之深邃,在我看来俨然有如一项庞大而不可想象的工程。
