Christine Welch详细介绍

中文名:克丽丝叮

国籍:美国

出生地:新墨西哥州

生日:1988年12月28日

简介:克丽丝叮(英语:Christine Welch,1988年12月28日-),是一位来自美国的台湾女歌手。2011年时,因在YouTube上翻唱多首国语歌曲而走红[1],2014年出道发行第一张个人创作专辑。她能够流利的听、说、读中文,喜欢的书籍是《庄子》,欣赏的词人是李清照,她目前定居在台湾。

“克丽丝叮”的艺名是她自己取的,“叮”是她喜欢的漫画《哆啦A梦》,在台湾曾译为小叮当。中文名“韦欣”则是她在北京外国语大学时的老师帮她取的名。

She began her musical career accidentally, posting covers of Chinese songs to document her efforts at learning Chinese. After several of these covers went viral on Youtube, she began recording a pocketful of hits with producer Skot Suyama in 2012, who is also an American expat living in Taiwan. The two decided to record a music video themselves, which resulted in the explosion of popularity of "What Are You Looking For" (a folk song co-written by Christine and Skot with Chinese melodic influences) and "That's How It Is" (an indie rock song) in both China and Taiwan.

Christine is currently enrolled at National Taiwan Normal University, getting her Masters in Chinese Literature, and writes all of her lyrics--in Chinese. After signing with a management company, Fengyun Media, in 2014 Christine released an EP which includes two singles, a new song entitled "Into the Bamboo Forest," a folk throwback to Chinese melodic style and with influences from ancient Chinese poetry, and the first official release of "That's How It Is." At the same time, she published a book complete with her Chinese lyrics, poetry, and a short autobiography.

从艺历程:克丽丝叮出生于美国新墨西哥州的阿布奎基市,她是家中三个女儿的大姐:自序,幼时曾在学校习得西班牙语与法语。她从小就喜欢哼哼唱唱,小学时结交了一位来自台湾的朋友,但当时并不会中文。中学以后开始喜欢阅读,高中毕业以全校第一名资格录取了西北大学。因为大学时的亚洲语言课程选修她当时认为最难的中文,从此迷上中国文化,同时在大学也参加了A Cappella合唱团。

大学三年级时,她申请前往北京外国语大学留学。在此期间,她接触到台湾偶像剧《流星花园》,与听到周杰伦、杨丞琳等歌手的作品,因此之后决定转赴台湾。

大学毕业后,她获得傅尔布莱特奖学金,到高雄市的三民国小与寿山国小教小学生英文,同时到国立中山大学华语教学中心继续学习;2010年,她开始在Youtube上传自己翻唱的华语歌曲;2011年,因翻唱电视剧《我可能不会爱你》中陈柏霖的插曲获好评,引来媒体注目。

2013年,她被唱片公司相中,准备在2014年发行专辑,但劳委会以外国人必须以母语写成文件,而驳回她在台湾的工作证申请,在媒体报导后,劳委会以“认知差异”作回应而放行。
