"Life after loss can still be beautiful."
Red Tan’s passion for music has always been on display – nowadays, it simply reaches a much larger audience. Growing up as a young child in Asia, she started her professional career as a singer when she was only sixteen years old, stepping into the spotlight for the first time in lounges throughout the country to sing a mix of Jazz standards and well-known hits from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s for the people to enjoy. As life continued to blossom with possibility, potential, and opportunities, Red got married to a fantastic man and went on to focus on building a home & family over the course of the five years to follow; and although her music was technically on hiatus, she never lost the powerful connection she’d established to it long ago and the dream never faded from view. With her domestic life as perfect as one could ever hope it could be, Red and her husband would often talk about her return to music and plan out her journey on an international scale, imagining what the future could hold for them both…
…and then tragedy struck in the worst of possible ways. Almost as soon as Red’s husband had encouraged her to get back on stage and pursue her career as an artist, he suddenly passed away. After finding her soul-mate, getting married, and losing him so early on, the roller coaster of emotions sent Red into intense bouts of depression and anxiety as she struggled to come to terms with it all. At times it seemed like it was impossible…like no amount of good in the future could somehow offset the sadness of the past…and when the world seemed like it was crushing her, it was music that saved Red.
She realized that the best way to honor her husband was to pursue the dreams they shared together – and so she did, at full-force, with all the commitment & dedication required.
After winning Bronze medals at The World Championships of Performing Arts in LA, Red knew she can jump start her career in the international level and packed up her belongings for a complete reset. She moved to London in 2018 with the intentions of making a life for herself in the musical-theatre community before becoming a Grand Finalist of Open Mic UK and being discovered by the show producer himself, Chris Grayston, who guided her towards a complete change of style & direction and into the world of Electro/Pop.
As Red Tan rebuilt herself from the ground up, most importantly, she recognized that her experience in life, love, and loss, gave her the unique ability to sincerely connect to music & listeners on a whole new level. Summoning the courage to write about all she’s been through without pulling punches, Red poured her heart & soul into her lyrics and vocals, unafraid to be vulnerable and reveal the emotional strength she had discovered in a genuine effort to create songs that spoke to people when they would need it most. If the music had once saved Red Tan, then she could now pay it forward and do the same for others – she could be that light in the dark and lead the way to a brighter tomorrow by being brave enough to confront how tough the past has been, and prove that something beautiful can be born from tragedy.
With her radiant vocals, powerful lyricism, and relentless desire, she’s taken her life back completely, and seized the momentum as she surged to incredibly exciting new heights in her career as an artist. Red released her debut singles “Don’t You Dare” and “Don’t Let Go” in 2019 to a wildly supportive fan-base that has continued to grow exponentially by the day ever since. She’s just dropped her first cut of 2020 online – “Be There For You” is already finding its way into the hearts & minds across the globe and a home on charts & playlists worldwide – and for plenty of good reasons.
From the vibrant & evocative way she sings her stunningly expressive lyrics and her Electro/Pop sound designed for the right here and now – Red Tan creates poetically bold, empowering music that speaks to the soul of everyone listening.
