A sassy Singaporean singer-songwriter, Tay Kewei used to be the supporting singer of superstars David Tao, A-mei, Wang Lee Hom and our country's very own JJ Lin.

She has since released 3 full length albums under her belt, which broke through the Asia market regionally.

Kewei was nicknamed the "angel of harmony" and she plays several instruments such as the guitar, ukulele and piano, but catches most attention by playing the er-hu. Kewei's talents has got her involved in many events and performances, such as the NDP Parade 2014, Celebrate SG50 Countdown show, Temasek Holding's Jubilee at the Botanic Gardens, SEA Games 2015, ASEAN-China Friendship Concert and The Eye Ball 2017 at Goodwood Park Hotel, just to name a few.

In June 2016, Kewei staged her first full-fledged solo concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall, and were well-received by the media and public alike. She also released her latest EP "Chi" in conjunction with the concert.
