Hu Yanbin (born 4 July 1983), formerly known as Anson Hu, is a Chinese pop singer, singer-songwriter, music director, and record producer. In 2012, he changed his English name to Tiger Hu with the release of this Eighth album, One Size Bigger.

Biography[edit]

From a young age, Anson Hu showed great interest in music. He had his vocal training with Professor Xiaoyan Zhou. At age 13, he was admitted to Shanghai Music Conservatory where he majored in singing. Two years later, he set a goal of releasing his first CD before his eighteenth birthday.

Hu's talents began to be recognized by the public in 1999 when he won the silver medal at the Shanghai Music Awards New Singer Competition. He advanced to the finals, where he won the award for having the most potential of any singer. Because of this, he was discovered by the Go East Entertainment, Co. Ltd., with whom he signed a contract and released his first album, Wen Wu Shuang Quan, in August 2002. This was just after his nineteenth birthday. The album became an instant hit. The album won Hu many "Best New Artist" awards at the end of the year in China and overseas, and his song "the Monk" made the Top 10 lists of several charts. Another song "Telling me" also received several "Best Song of the Year" awards. In December, the second version of this album, entitled "Anson Hu", was released, which contained the same 10 tracks plus a karaoke version.

In July 2003, Hu released his second album, Upgrade 4147, which he helped produce himself. The album contained duets with popular singers Elva Hsiao and Ronald Cheng. With this album he again swept through the award ceremonies with several trophies under his belt; he also received awards from all over Asia. Hu's credibility as a musician continued to rise, and he gained more and more fans, in China and abroad.

Hu's early success is mirrored by his third and fourth album, Music Mix and Music Code, released in September 2004 and March 2006 respectively. Hu steadily began to win awards like "best" and "favorite male artist", graduating from "best new artist." Music Mix featured the wildly popular song "Waiting for You", which has become a fan favorite.

After releasing Music Code, Hu switched from Go East Entertainment and signed a contract under Gold Label Records, under which he released Music Mix and his subsequent albums.

Continuing his steady work, Hu released Men's Songs, his fifth album, in November 2007. While featuring a heartfelt and mature musical style that shows off Hu's piano skills, the album reflects upon the changes of a man's life and shows off Hu's superior musical talents. Hu was also selected to be a contestant on the Chinese version of I Am a Singer, which he came fifth.

Dated Zheng Shuang, a Chinese actress, but broke up with her this May.
