Edwin Ch'ng is a virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and songwriter that incorporates a wide variety of musical influences and styles, from the country of Chet Atkins, to the swing of Django Reinhardt. Edwin has developed a distinct sound, and captured the hearts of many with sincerity and soul.
Born and raised in the beautiful island of Penang in Malaysia, he received his first guitar at age of 11, and began learning to play only by ear. Whilst Edwin has never had any formal musical training, his natural musical ability and intrinsic musical sense has gained him fans around the world. He was and still is greatly influenced by the great Australian fingerstyle maestro - Tommy Emmanuel.
His dream came true when he performed with Tommy back in 2017. Edwin has performed solo concerts and gigs in Malaysia, China and here in Australia, and played live numerous times in Perth’s local radio stations.
He also is part of a panel of judges for the yearly Penang International Guitar Competition held in Malaysia. He has 5 solo fingerstyle guitar albums under his belt. Currently, he performs as a solo artist, and with the gypsy swing band Sino Swing.
