Keeva Mak (chinese: 麥家瑜, pinyin: Mak Ka Yu) is a Hong Kong singer. She loved music as a child and often played in her father’s recording studio. Many veteran singers recorded there so she was exposed to various styles of music and famous musicians. After sending a demo to Hong Kong, she was invited to record music and eventually signed a contract with Universal Music. She debuted in 2008 with the song “The Tenderness That Kills Me”. She went on to release two albums, a self-titled album in 2009 and “More Than Love” in 2013. Source

Wrapup

I decided to feature a Cantopop artist because it has been a long time since the last one. This week we have Keeva Mak, who is one of the first Cantopop singers that I actually liked. I still go back and listen to her music every once in a while. Keeva Mak sings mostly ballads so if you don’t like slow songs, she’s most likely not for you. “Fatally Ill” and “Looking At The Sun’s Rays” change it up a little bit and are less typical but the rest of the ballads are your usual piano or acoustics driven ones.

Keeva Mak is not a name that I see being talked about. She is probably not very popular, which would explain having only two albums in seven years. I think that she deserves more than that. Not outstanding in any way but with a decent voice and two solid albums, she is worth looking into.
