Young Chinese rock singer starts French journey

A rhinoceros is walking on a dust road, wearing a stubborn look. That is the picture appearing on the front cover of Wang Wei's first personal album. This 28-year-old young man who had spent 12 years in France said his music journey had just started.

Wang did everything by himself for his first album. He designed the front cover. He was the singer, producer, and the guitar player. He even wrote the lyrics and composed the music for all the songs. He did not want any music production companies to do all this for him. He might just want them to be the music distributor.

Wang Wei likes rock "n" roll. To him, it is a kind of music that can reveal a person's stupidity or naivety. It can express a person's true feelings at heart. The lyrics in his songs express his emotions frankly. They are filled with poetic melancholy. They don't sound hysterical, as if the singers are struggling for something, just like the rock "n" roll music we often hear. Because he had been living a rather comfortable life in Europe compared with other singers, he didn't have the experience of life struggle. He didn't actually find some work to do, although he did wash dishes (he did so in order to gain some life experience, not to make a living). He hadn't lived in dirty basement. So he is not cynical to life. When you look at him, he seems more like a campus singer. He even felt embarrassed with his tender skin.

Sometimes he is a stubborn guy. But, in order to become a music star, he is willing to make changes. He has listened to the public's opinions, so half of the songs in his second album are lyric songs.

It's hard to tell which influences him more, Eastern music or Western music. In his album, one can hear both Eastern style songs and songs filled with Paris sentiment. His two most popular songs, A Bright Sky and I'm Sorry, Dear, were both finished in Europe. But he personally doesn't like these two non-rock "n" roll songs.

Wang uses a Chinese idiom to describe his own life – "The burden is heavy and the road ahead is long." He predicts that the music environment in China will become better in future.

"It is my wish that I can finish 20 personal albums by the time I die. If listeners can feel something from my music, I will be content," he said.
