Painted Sun 日
Painted Sun is the brainchild of American-born, Taipei-based composer musician Scott Prairie who was fortunate enough to meet and collaborate with two knock out Taiwanese musicians. The result is a set of songs that are a rich theatrical, joyful, rock pop opera celebration. Lead singer Jessica (HsinTien) Huang (黃心恬) is a natural born front woman and street dancer, her mind blowing energy goes right to and through the heart. Yuju Weng (翁于茹) was trained at the respected Berklee college of music and is in high demand as a sound effects coordinator for events throughout Taiwan, she offers creative environments on multiple instruments, along with Scott on bass guitar.
發芽於定居台灣的美籍音樂創作家Scott Prairie，音樂命運串聯起另外兩位充滿新生創意的台灣音樂種子。Painted Sun的音樂有著多種張力，樂曲意境與畫面、穿梭搖滾與流行、歌頌自在與愉悅。
Before moving to Taiwan Scott performed in many of New York City’s most respected centers for creative art as a singer songwriter and experimental musician, including CBGB’s, The Kitchen, and The Knitting Factory and worked with members of groups such as Guided By Voices and Sonic Youth. Since moving to Taiwan he has performed in twenty-three countries including The Kennedy Center and The Melbourne International Arts Festival with Taipei-based world music group A Moving Sound, which he co-created with his wife Mia Hsieh. Their music has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”, BBC Radio 3, Huffington Post and The Discovery Channel.
