Wanted to follow up with you about JOHN TSUNG, whose album is out May 20.
Released timed to AAPI Heritage Month, JOHN's Empire Postcards takes lyrical inspiration from the breadth of interviews he had with East Asian immigrants over since 2018, and his own experience as a Taiwanese immigrant who moved to Texas at age 10.
This weekend, a poignant essay JOHN wrote will run on Daily Beast. In it he unravels what it means to be Asian American in 2022.
Next week in NYC, he will continue his event series celebrating AAPI month following an event at underground gallery Chinatown Soup
, with a stripped down performance and tasting menu with a mix of Taiwanese and Texan dishes by Kristy Chen of supper club Thank You For Coming at Bushwick Test Kitchen - give a shout if you'll be in town! I might have some spots.
Please see enclosed for a download of the album. The chorus to "Pale Horses" - I have no words!!! But I hope you might ;)
