Kenny aspires to be a singer since young. After his studies, he began his musical career as a lead vocalist with his band, Kenyen.

His performances soon caught the attention of local director Chai Yee Wei which led him to be casted as one of the 4 lead roles in the Singapore music movie– “That girl in a pinafore” After realising a song that one of his favourite songs, 复制人 by Jam Hsiao was written by Singapore music veterans – Eric Ng and Xiaohan. He decided to pick up songwriting from their music school, equipping himself with the skills to evolve into a singer-songwriter.
Kenny is now signed to Funkie Monkies Productions, a recording label managed by his mentors Eric and Xiaohan and has just released his first full length self composed Mandarin album “Ten Storeys” in Taiwan April 2014.
