I like making shimmery pop sound, it makes me feel hopeful and empowered. Not just to empowering my listeners, but also myself as a person.
As a female Asian music producer, I always feel I'm one of the odds cos women in music is underrepresented in this industry.
Music has a organic power to bring human connections. As an artist, I believe we have the power to heal, and to nurture self-confidence among audience. "Skin" and "New Classic" are two of my recent releases , that carry the message of body positivity and women empowerment.

One Phrase to describe my artistry?
S T O R Y
"I always want to pursue my career in the music industry since I was very small. I couldn't afford to go to Berklee back then, so I studied my Bachelor Degree in Social Sciences in Hong Kong and at the same time teaching myself on on music production and learning as much as I could about music business. I am very lucky to have a lot of people supporting on this journey. Now I can proudly say I can write, produce, record and perform on my own. I do love collaborations, I just see this not as an necessity but it's an artistic choice.
I worked full time in Art Management at a charity for 6 years and saved up for my artist project and releases. Until 2023 Feb, I decided to quit my full time job to pursue music 100%. I can now call myself a DIY Artist because everything you see out there is me. Now I am an independent artist, music producer, vocal producer, and songwriter.
I have a skin condition since I was a kid, I love to explore the ups and downs of having Eczema and skin allergy, and how I embrace body positivity along the journey.
Skin is a very personal and vulnerable piece of my song catalogue, which is also a very important song of my artist journey. The skin condition shapes XTIE’s identity as a person and as an artist.
