Etienne’s Vocals and Guitar set him apart from the masses. The room quiets to listen when he sings, like hearing the first Song Sparrow in early spring. Unique, connected, inimitable, beautiful

Album Release

Etienne Siew’s album “Chasing Dreams,” is a 12 song catalogue of acoustic stories, outlining the winding, challenging and rewarding path of a singer-songwriter.

During the wake of the pandemic, when live performance ground to a halt, Etienne took his guitar and note pad to various forests and rivers throughout Vancouver and spent many months in reflection.

Within the silence, he found an outpouring of inspiration as he reflected on the resilience it takes to be an artist, the challenges and messages of hope, growing up with a diverse cultural background, and the connection we have with our environment.

Many of the songs will be supported by various visual pieces, to immerse the audience in the album and to encourage reflection of one’s own experiences with the themes.
