'There You Are', Jessie Chung's First English EP

9:00 AM


Last Tuesday, on 23rd August, I witnessed the launch of Dr Jessie Chung's (a Sarawak-born international singer, actress, and entrepreneur) first English EP ‘There You Are'. She is well known in the Chinese market and so, with this EP, she will enter into the English market.   This EP will feature three songs “There You Are”, “Drive My Heart” and “Some Place Honest”.

“I would like to dedicate this EP to both my father and my husband,” said Dr Jessie Chung. “I want to tell everyone that it is important to cherish your loved ones while they are still alive and I hope that, through my music, I am able to touch the hearts of many and get this message across.”

Dr Jessie adds, “I am very fortunate to be always surrounded by good people that have my best interest – be it my loved ones, friends and colleagues.  And it is because of them that I have the courage to spread my wings and fly.  I am not afraid of change, and to try new things.  So far, I am very grateful that the Chinese market has accepted my work.  I think it is timely to move into the English market and to make my music truly international.”

Dr Jessie has released seven other albums, notably Home, Loving You, Message of Love from the Moon, Love in You, I Just Fall in Love Again, and Tearless Sky.  Her single "Love in You" was selected as the theme song for the Korean TV series My Secret Garden in Taiwan. Jessie Chung’s last album rose to fourth place on the I Radio Top Hits Chart and 6th place on the Pop Radio Top Ten Music Chart in Taiwan, just within two weeks of her initial release. 

‘There You Are’ is produced by Andy James Court, a renowned Australian veteran musician who is known for his rock ‘n’ roll style during the early years of his career. He has won over thirty international music awards and was the recipient of the 2015 Song of the Year Award. The music video was filmed and produced by Elijah Cavanagh, a film director from Brisbane, Australia.  

“The filming of the music video for There You Are has been such a journey,” said Jessie. “We spent two days and nights, travelling on the road throughout Brisbane and Gold Coast to shoot the music video. It was very cold at around 10 degrees Celsius, but I was not allowed to wear a sweater to keep myself warm. The most unforgettable moment was the one at the beach.  As I was walking on the top of the cliff next to the ocean, I nearly fell down, but luckily, being trained with Wushu skills, I was able to maintain my balance.”

At the recording sessions, producer Andy praised Jessie for her beautiful voice and vocal techniques which were beyond his expectations. He was very surprised, during production, how easily she fulfilled all his requirements; her tone, pitch, and emotions were perfect. What surprised him even more was that Jessie, who isn’t a native English speaker, accentuated well when she sang, and he praised generously. 

Dr Jessie’s artist manager in Australia, Jonathan Timm said, “As her artist manager, I am privileged to work with her and to introduce her into the Australian market. I’ve listened to three songs in the album, and I love them. What’s really different about these songs are that they are big songs; like “anthems” played at stadiums, moving all those that sing along with it.  As for the music video, I found the aesthetics clean and polished, and, of course, Jessie looks amazing in it. I think her fans are going to love it.” 

“My goal is to help her achieve the widest exposure and acceptance in the English-speaking markets, and this includes the Australian and the global markets through different forms of distribution, especially digital marketing. The change of image is part of the plan as well. In this English EP, we have created a new image for her, portraying a different side of Jessie who is energetic yet fun-loving,” Timm added. “We are all so excited to introduce this new image of her!”

Mr Darren Choy, Managing Director of Warner Music Malaysia and Singapore said, “Warner Music is one of the world's leading music publishers and we represent some of the most established artistes in Malaysia.  We are very proud to have also been Dr Jessie Chung’s distribution partner since her last Chinese album, “Tearless Sky”, and now once again for her EP “There You Are”

Choy continued, “I would like to highlight that the EP will be available on various digital platforms including iTunes, KK Box, Spotify, Deezer, Joox from 2 September 2016 onwards. We hope that you enjoy these songs as much as we did.”

“There You Are” can be purchased digitally on iTunes and KK Box, and the album will be available in all NHF outlets nationwide. Get a copy of the EP today or download from iTunes.

After an interview with Dr Jessie Chung and officially launching the EP, we were treated to a video screening of 'There You Are'. It carried a simple message of cherishing your loved ones. Do get her EP and enjoy the three featured songs. Or you can purchase it digitally.
