Cindy Yen, born in Houston, Texas, is a singer-songwriter, dancer, actress, producer and TV host. In October 2009 she released her first self-titled album "Cindy Yen袁詠琳", in which she wrote and produced the entire album. Her first single, "Sand Painting," a duet sung with Jay Chou and composed by Cindy herself, became an instant hit topping music charts all across Asia. Cindy's music covers an array of styles ranging from R&B, soul, pop, and classical, to rock, acoustic folk, electronic dance and hip-hop. Cindy released her second album, '2 Be Different', on 29 September 2011. Cindy again wrote and produced all ten songs on her album, except this time, Cindy shed her previous "girl-next-door" image and shocked the world with her new, sexy electronic dance single "陷阱" ("Trap") instead. Her second album successfully gained her the new title "唱跳創作新女生", or "singing, dancing, composing new female artist". '2 Be Different' received immediate recognition and Cindy won Best Stylistic New Artist at the Beijing MTV Super Awards 2011. She also received Best Single of the Year for "Trap" and Best Stylistic Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the prestigious Beijing Music Awards 2012.
Not only is Cindy a renowned singer, performer, dancer, and song-writer, but she has also started diving into TV & film. On July 5, 2011, Cindy debuted as a supporting actress in her first TV drama in the network series "瑰寶1949 (Invaluable Treasure 1949)". The TV series was nominated for 5 Golden Bell Awards including Best Male Actor, Best Female Actress, and Best Drama of the Year. "Invaluable Treasure 1949" ended up winning Best Artistic Design and Best Sound Effects. In January 2012, Cindy finished filming her first full-length feature film called "The First Time" (第一次) alongside actor Mark Chao (趙又廷) and Hong Kong model Angelababy. Cindy also wrote two theme songs for the film, which can be found on the original soundtrack. “The First Time” premiered in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong on June 8, 2012, and received top box office charts in Asia.
In 2015, Cindy released her third album 'Fight For Love', in which she self-produced two of the music videos – "Come To Mami" & "Bad Boy". She has since released a three-song EP "This Moment" and multiple singles including "I Love Myself", "Fighting For Love" and "Brave". Her latest single "Brave" has reached over 3 million views since its release.
