== About ==
The band members from all parts of the world celebrate their rocky way of presenting poetic lyrics about travelling, love and having an open mind. The band members are Philipp (voc, guitar, songwriting), Kris (drums), Xu Meng Yao (piano), Tom (Guitar) and Neil (bass).
Philipp Schiffers (guitar, voc, songwriting) from Germany started off as a songwriter in German language. He first played piano but later changed to playing guitar. He now works in Beijing as a music therapist. His favourite music are songs of songwriters and all kind of world music. His lyrics are influenced by his traveling experiences.
The American Kristopher Pickett , or "The Artist Formerly Known as Huang Huzi" has been in Beijing since the fall of the Qing Dynasty working on various rock, and, or, roll projects and dealing ivory on the side. After 'rock' was declared dead, and the international ivory prices dropped, Kris chose a more conceptual path and began teaching English and English literature. Since the loss of his beard (it shall return!), he has found life more aerodynamic. He also plays the drums for Bu Yao!.
The British Neil McFarlane could have been anything â an English teacher, a gardener, a cleaner, a garbage collector... â but at the age of 16 he was given a battered old guitar, and from that day on, music became the focus of his world. He went on to become an English teacher, a gardener, a cleaner, a garbage collector...
Tom Painter is the bands famous and experimental guitar sound provider! How experi-mental he can work you can hear in "Bicycle in Beijing"
Beijing girl Xu Mengyao (keyboard) played classical piano music since she was 3. After being baptized by Beethoven s Sonata, Mozartâs Serenade and Chopinâs Etude (practising piano occupied most of her childhood) she suddenly found her piano play good enough to open the gate to the heaven of all the different kinds of Bu Yao's music styles and she created her own blue style of playing piano.
