Linying first gained recognition from her collaborations with some of European house music’s biggest names, leading to a #1 on Hype Machine and over 10 million plays on Spotify. She released her own first single “Sticky Leaves” earlier this year, landing on Spotify’s viral charts globally, with Billboard writing, “As the track builds slowly from a piano-driven ballad to its quicker-paced electronic climax, Linying’s voice remains the focal point, soaring higher and higher.” She followed that with “Alpine,” which was featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, with NPR Music’s Bob Boilen commenting, “those electronic textures and that gorgeous voice are just a perfect match.”
Named a Spotify Spotlight on 2016 Featured Artist, Linying is ready to further showcase her brand of moving lyricism and vivid music productions in songs that reveal a stark emotion perspective through elements of electronica, baroque pop, folk and alt-rock.
Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride says of Linying, “For me, music is about emotion, and Linying delivers on that experience. She is a very special artist, and we are excited to be her label partner for North and South America.”
Linying made her live debut in Tokyo last month at the Summer Sonic Festival, and is in the midst of a European tour with Felix Jaehn before appearing at a series of festivals around the world, ending in her native Singapore for the Neon Lights Festival on November 27th.
Paris 12 EP will be released in Asia via Universal Music Group and in Europe/UK via Akira.
