About Scott Tang

Scott Tang is a composer and pianist singer-songwriter whose journey has spanned many musical genres and taken him to the other side of the world. After copyrighting his first work at age 9 and working feverishly at the piano through his teenage years, Scott went on to major in music at U.C. Berkeley. He was one of the most involved and popular composers of the school's Undergraduate Composers group, due to a body of neo-romantic work that included string quartets, piano rhapsodies and choral pieces, one of which was premiered by Grammy award-winning Chanticleer director, Joseph Jennings.

Upon earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in music with distinction, Scott traveled to Hong Kong, living in a Buddhist nunnery and learning about the Chinese music industry. He went on to write the theme song for the opening ceremony of the largest Buddhist temple in Hong Kong. The song was recorded by Jacky Cheung and Alan Tam and quickly sped to the Top Ten on the local radio charts, earning well over a million HK dollars for charity. It was eventually incorporated into the daily routine of the school at the temple, so the children would gather each morning to sing the song together. Scott's experience at the Buddhist temple led to a stint writing songs for Polygram Records at their Tsimshatsui publishing department.

Since relocating to Los Angeles, Scott has been forcefully involved with both established and emerging Asian-American entertainment groups such as KSCI TV, MTV Chi, ImaginAsian TV/Radio, Visual Communications, the Tuesday Night Project, Sushi & Tofu, Rafu Shimpo, Aziatic Empire, Cold Tofu and more. He has co-organized a variety of shows in the Los Angeles area, such as the Komuzika showcase in downtown Los Angeles, ChopRock in Los Feliz, the 3rd Annual Asian Hip Hop Summit in Koreatown, YellowHouse in Silver Lake, and FuseBox, a night of music and video, in collaboration with MTV World and the VC FilmFest. Local venues he has played include The Gig, Tangier, Room 5, The Derby and Zen Sushi, as well as various festivals in Chinatown, the San Gabriel Valley and Little Tokyo. TV appearances have included KSCI's Chinese talk show "L.A. Living," the popular Pinoy TV show "Kababayan" and guest hosting the Top Ten Chi Countdown on MTV Chi.

Scott's debut solo album, "Late Night Drives," was released independently in July 2005. gave it four stars, recognizing that "there's something overtly genuine about these songs, emanating the kind of enduring soul that many pop artists wish for just a small fraction of. Late Night Drives is sparkling contemporary pop music with a rare kind of purity and verve." The album is full-fledged piano pop, and features Vietnamese pop sensation Trish Trang on background vocals, as well as a production team that has collectively worked with such artists as Fiona Apple, Black Eyed Peas, Rod Stewart, Madonna and Chaka Khan.

The music video for "Freeway" premiered on MTV Chi's Top Ten Chi Countdown, and has appeared on local and national TV and various Asian film festivals.

Scott's second solo album, "Radiant," was released in fall 2007. The music video for “Sublingual” premiered by closing out the music video program at the 24th Annual Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, held at the Director's Guild of America. The music video was also screened at the San Diego Asian Film Festival and the Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival and has appeared on KSCI Channel 18 in Los Angeles and ImaginAsian TV in New York.

In February 2009, Scott released his third full-length album, "T-Shirts For Tourists," which is available online from iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, Amazon MP3, Napster and Lala.
