Just browsed around the the Dimsum website and came across this article/interview with a British Chinese/Vietnamese jazz singer Tuanne Mac. I do like jazz music but I'm still a newbie to the genre, so I'm not sure exactly what to look for. Though her music is very accessible kind of like easy listening, I really enjoyed her songs from the preview on her site. Tuanne has that husky, but smooth (can't of a better way to describe it lol) voice very reminiscent of classic jazz singers. It's good to see a an East Asian artist who doesn't do the manufactured pop/R&B or the squeaky clean Cantopop stuff, she's a genuine artist who writes her own songs.
She also mentioned her inspirations come from black and white French films, humm...must be a fan of Jean-Luc Godard.
Check her out:
