With the most number of nominations, CHTHONIC takes the Best Rock Album and the Best Band awards while its guitarist Jesse gets the Best Musician at Taiwan’s Golden Music Awards ceremony hosted by Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture and broadcast live by Azio TV last Saturday Oct. 26 in Taipei.
Jesse thanked his fellow band members and the judges, while the band leader Doris also thanked her partners for supporting each other along the way when receiving the Best Band award. Doris said that it takes a lot of hard work to tour around the world, “if not for the support that we give each other in the band, it would be hard for us to achieve this together”. When receiving the Best Rock Album award, the lead vocalist gave his thanks every one who participated in the production of the album, including Wu Hsiung, Tang Mei-yun, Chen Ming-chang, Tsai Chen-nan, and Möbius Theatre. “We’ve completed this very challenging yet very interesting album together!” Freddy said. He then dedicated the album to Ng Chiau-tong, the late chairman of the World United Formosans for Independence who passed away two years ago. “We miss your charming smile a lot!” He said.
In the backstage, CHTHONIC members continued to express their gratitude to their families, their team, and fans: “whether you are in Taiwan or elsewhere, the CHTHONIC team and fans are just like a big global family, we are truly thankful of all our partners!”
