欣欣

Returning to Vancouver after seven years in Toronto, Kristin Fung’s ferocious, tender, and captivating voice as a lead singer, keyboardist, composer, and improviser traverse musical landscapes of “soulful grace [and] jazzy joy” (From The Intercom), and funky R&B. Her deeply earnest and uplifting originals evoke the sounds of self-accompanying piano queens Alicia Keys and Patrice Rushen, showing off her powerhouse lungs and groovy piano chops.

A charismatic performer with playful and elegant stage presence, Fung’s second EP, “Live at The Garden” (2023) was filmed live in-concert at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. Due to rain, the performance was moved inside at the last minute. Fung reflects on the enchanted evening: “I can still see that sunset, the one you chose to miss so that we could play an encore.”

Her forthcoming electro-R&B single, “Why Don’t You Dance” will hit worldwide platforms and roller rinks this year.

A soulful innovator, Fung is the creator of the outdoor live music and chocolate series, Funk N’ Mink which was one of five selected recipients of DowntownVan’s Public Space Vibrancy program (2021). Other performances include the Vancouver International Jazz Festival (2021), Markham Jazz Festival (2019), and Roulette (New York, 2019).

"My first words were in Cantonese, but when I started going to school, I switched to English to fit in with my peers. It's been on my heart for many years to be more deeply engaged with my mother tongue."
