Harriet Chung pens a musical love letter to her beloved former home with new single and video Vancouver — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

An uplifting and exuberant journey propelled by piano, guitar, strings and Chung’s bright, earnest vocal, Vancouver is a personal and sentimental destination for the multi-honoured artist. “The song is about a road trip across Canada that ends in Vancouver,” Chung explains. “Having lived there in the past, the song is about my love for the city. Warren Robert’s arrangement and guitars with a fabulous solo give the song the energy to take you across Canada and the beautiful city of Vancouver.”

Chung’s musical journey takes her from Ontario’s “jaggy shield” through the Prairies, up and down the Alberta foothills and over the Rocky Mountains, leading her through the “peaceful” Okanagan and down the Fraser River “where all the salmon run” to finally end up where “we can all be free.”

A preview of her upcoming debut album, the track — which also features Robert on guitars and bass, Christopher Siu on piano, Randy Cooke on drums and Rique Franks on background vocals — is the followup to his 2021 release A World Away (Remix). Chung’s debut single was adapted from Taiwanese-Canadian singer-songwriter George Chiang’s score for the award-winning musical The Golden Lotus, in which she played the title character. Chung’s work in the musical earned her a Best Actress nomination from the Hong Kong English Drama Awards, while the production itself won Best Original Work. Her performance in the video for A World Away (Remix) won Chung a Best Actress award from the Europe Film Festival.

As accomplished quadruple-threat performer — singer, actress, dancer and choreographer — Chung was Canada’s first Asian actress to be cast in The Phantom of the Opera. She has also appeared in Cats, The King and I, Iron Road, Fiddler on Fire and more. She shares her expertise, experience, and love for her crafts with students from all over the world through her school, Harriet Chung Performing Arts.
