Taiwan artist - Lim Giong / Lin Qiang





One of my favorite Taiwanese artists from 1990, he started off as a singer, mostly writing about travelers that travel from the boonies to Taipei in search of a better life, with their characters being home sick, contemplating about life and future in the big city.  He has since retired and became a film score composer, and occasionally, an actor (see above in the awesome motorcycle scene in the South of Taiwan) His works are mostly known to international audiences from his collaboration with Taiwanese film maker Hou Hsiao Hsien.
