Life and career[edit]

Chang was in the church choir as a child, which made him interested in music at a young age. He learnt to play the guitar in his middle school years and was gradually exposed to rock music.[2]

Chang released his first album I Just Like You (就是喜歡你) with labels Pony Canyon and Magic Stone in 1993 before following up with the album Have the Flowers Opened Yet?, with Taiwanese label Rock Records. Chang released his third and fourth albums This Afternoon is Very Boring (1997) and Secret Base (1998) with Magic Stone. The song Love Me, Don't Go from Secret Base was a massive hit in Mainland China and Taiwan. Both albums made the China Times Top 10 Albums list for 1998 and 1999 respectively. Chang crossed into Hip hop music in a collaboration with rapper MC HotDog in the song Wo Yao Qian from the album Secret Base. Chang appeared in the 1998 film Connection by Fate (超級公民), directed by Wan Jen, it was shown at the Venice Film Festival and won the FIPRESCI/NETPAC Award at The Singapore International Film Festival in 1999.[3]

Chang founded his own record label True Color in 2004 and released his first extended play Drunk (2005) with the label. Chang released an additional EP Goodbye in July 2005 with Rock Records.

Chang released his ninth studio album OK in July 2007. For his album he was awarded as the eighth best mandarin male artist by chinese tabloid Southern Metropolis Daily. He collaborated with singer Tanya Chua in the hit song Missing You is a Type of Illness (思念是一种病) from the album. The song was written by Chang and singer-songwriter Chyi Chin. Chang also collaborated with fellow rapper MC HotDog and Taiwanese TV anchor Patty Hou on the song Small Star. In 2008, Chang created the band Superband along with Jonathan Lee, Wakin Chau, and Lo Ta-yu. The band's first EP North Bound (2010), won the Jury Award at the 21st Golden Melody Awards. In their second 2010 EP, Go South, the song Give Me My Own Song was awarded as the Best Song of The Year at the 22nd Golden Melody Awards. They disbanded later that year after finishing all tours.
