Chen Li (陈粒 陳粒) at 红糖罐 (Brown Sugar Jar Music Space (Hong Tang Guan)) in Shenzhen.

There’s a bit of chitchat in the beginning, but then there are 2 songs at 1:25. Lyrics shown on the screen behind her. The uploader was peeking between two other patrons, but the picture and audio are both good!  There is one more beautiful song uploaded HERE. =D

p.s. Chen Li is also the singer for the band Daydreamer (空想家) You should really go over to their douban and hear a few songs, especially “念流勿驻” and “走在通往明天的路上”, to appreciate Chen Li at full rock power!

Following on from the last post, here is one of the songs included on the new Chen Li aka Lily (陈粒) debut solo album. This happens to be the song most played on her douban. 

I’m not sure if the audio is a demo or early release single.  She does some things that are much more folky than this; overall, I can’t really pin her down to a certain style. I’m enjoying all of it!  =D

There are so few Chen Li clips on YouTube, but I did find this channel: 非主流抒情音樂第二區, which specializes in making indie lyric videos, so check that out for some new things to try. The channel has posted 23 videos over 5 months. It looks like mostly mainland artists, but I don’t know all the bands.
