About 9m88

9m88,90 後台北女子,新生代創作音樂人。音樂風格深受R&B、Neo soul、Jazz、Improvisation、Hip hop、Pop影響,慵懶感性的嗓音即興遊走,兼具優雅冷靜與古怪大膽的魅力,歌詞創作恰如其人,甜蜜帶點嘲諷,自然不造作,傳達現代女性的獨特思維。設計學院背景出身的她,開放多變的獨到美感,從音樂跨足影像、造型,型塑出強烈的個人節奏與藝術厚度。 2018 年底畢業於紐約 The New School 爵士演唱主修,師承爵士傳奇低音貝斯手 Reggie Workman 與高音薩克斯風手 Jane Ira Bloom。2016年底因與 Leo 王合唱的一曲─〈陪妳過假日〉開始讓聽眾知道她。接連陸續與各界音樂人展開合作,包括蛋堡、吳青峰、馬念先、LEO37+ SOSS、北京製作人 Fishdoll、YouTuber 異鄉人、華語 R&B 新星 ØZI …...等等。2017 年底與 2manysound 發行的《九頭身日奈》中翻唱了 City Pop 經典曲〈Plastic Love〉後,開始獲得更多國際上的關注。2019 年八月,9m88以獨立之姿,推出醞釀多時的首張創作專輯《平庸之上 Beyond Mediocrity》,與多位國際活躍音樂人合作,曲風多元線條自由具現代感,是一張充斥個人獨特美學,並具國際視野的潛力之作。
