Template:Orphan Brian Hau (b. 15 July 1982, Hong Kong) is a singer-songwriter, designer and occasional cartoon artist based in Hong Kong.[1]. Hau's quirky style has earned him growing recognition in the singer-songwriter scene in Hong Kong. [2][3]

Not one to take himself too seriously, Hau has developed a signature sound all of his own. His songs are a unique combination of demos and improvised lyrics.[2] Currently, he has released two albums named Definition (2006) and I'm Fat But I'm Happy (2008).[4]

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Canada, the independent musician has a Bachelor of Design degree from the University of Alberta[5]. He came home to embark on a career in one of the world’s most baffling music industries.

"My music is influenced by Cantopop, which I listened to in my younger days," says Hau. "But when I went to Canada I listened to radio there, and so there’s kind of a blend." Hau’s influences include the likes of Matchbox 20 and Alanis Morissette, and semi-obscure Canadian bands Our Lady Peace and Moist.[6]
