9 Maps are Sherin, Ciosa, Olivia and their brand of slow-burning indie-folk. Their music is full of fluid, interweaving harmonies and openly emotive atmospheres. Sometimes folksy, sometimes futuristic, their sound is made in a place where imagination and nostalgia blend. From opening for Ellie Goulding to playing at Hidden Agenda, 9 Maps flourish on the largest as well as most intimate of stages. They were marked out by Time Out magazine’s “Shining Lights” feature as the local band to watch and by CNNgo as one of the “Best Hong Kong bands to rock out with”.
Formed in 2014, Nowhere Boys are musicians of different backgrounds collaborating with each other in search of a new cinematic rock sound. Members include singer-songwriter Van Chan, jazz drummer Nate Wong, guitar expert Kenneth Angus, psychedelic pianist/ violinist Fisher Kan and all-round bassist/ instrumentalist Hansun Chan. Their music covers a wide range of cinematic stories - from childhood fear towards cockroaches, to fantasies of living in science fictions.
Award-winning composers and Berklee graduates Patrick Lui and Tsui Chin-hung will be presenting their jazz compositions and arrangements. Joining them are acclaimed musicians including bassist Scott Dodd who hails from Australia, and fellow Berklee alum Fish Huang from Taiwan on drums.
