Hailed as China’s top a cappella group, Metro is taking the musical world by storm. Their electrifying Chinese and English rep covers every genre from Funk to Rock, Jazz to Pop. At every concert they hit audiences with, what critics have described as, a “wall of sound.” This four-man vocal group is quickly becoming the leader of contemporary a cappella in Asia. With a career spanning 17 years and over 20 million views on Youku and YouTube worldwide, Metro is reigning in a new era of sound.
Metro started their career in 1998 singing aboard several ships with Celebrity Cruises. After four years with the fleet, they moved to Tokyo, Japan and performed for Tokyo Disney Sea in the American Waterfront. Their reputation for being exceptional entertainers caught the attention of the directors of Hong Kong Disneyland and in 2005, they were asked to open the park. After two years with the company, Metro made the decision to enter the mainstream music industry and they have never looked back. Since that time, Metro has discovered an entirely different variety of Cantonese and Mandarin music from the last 50 years and now performs some of China’s most beloved songs as well as their own compositions. After recording two trendsetting albums, in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, Metro has established themselves as powerful artists in the Asian music market.
They recorded their first Cantonese music video, My Pride, in 2009 and the response was overwhelming. Shortly after, in 2010, Metro recorded Beyond’s famous rock ballad, Under A Vast Sky, making them a household name in Asian communities around the world. Metro currently makes their home in Hong Kong, China.
