Tour Information
Presents: Iris Zhang 张雨清 & Ersha Island 二沙岛 Single Release Party

Join us in celebrating the release of the latest collaboration by Ersha Island 二沙岛 & Iris Zhang 张雨清, 'My Mother's Mountains and My Father's Sea'. The single is the first to be released from Ersha Island's 二沙岛 first EP Back To Our Roots, launching in early 2024.

Iris embarked on her musical journey at the tender age of 4 when she began piano lessons. As she grew, she honed her talents not only as a classically trained flautist and proficient Chinese zither player but also as a self-taught guitarist. The confident child who used to serenade herself to sleep every night evolved into a passionate vocalist, gracing numerous choirs, churches, and competitions with her melodic presence. More recently, she has gained recognition for her YouTube covers, amassing a dedicated online fanbase and catching the attention of established artists, most notably Shawn Mendes, who reacted to one of her videos, which has since amassed over 24 million views. Her latest single 'Lemon Tree' made its mark on the award-winning TV series Creamerie.

Indie-folk duo Ersha Island 二沙岛 are Chinese-Pākeha siblings who combine unique sounds from their cultural heritage, exploring what it means to be of mixed identity through lyrics, storytelling, and sound. Having chalked up distinctions in Piano and Violin for Classical Performance at the China Conservatory of Music in Beijing at ages 11 and 8, the siblings now write compositions featuring a blend of Eastern and Western sounds. They released debut singles Gut Feeling and Good Day in February 2022 on both Western and Asian/Chinese platforms along with two engaging music videos.
