Born in Calgary, Alberta, and being raised in an Asian household surrounded by music played from a karaoke machine, I.Con Twins grew a natural passion for music. As strong advocates for education, the duo graduated from the University of Calgary with Bachelor degrees in Science and a minor in Business.
As life progressed, the practicality parts of life overshadowed their passion for music.
They were bankers and worked tirelessly to climb the corporate ladder. They reached their career and financial goals, thinking this would make them happy.
But instead, they felt unfulfilled, lost, trapped and stuck.
Something was missing...
It was after their soul-searching trip in Hong Kong that the missing piece became apparent. The part that was submerged in their childhood finally resurfaced. They can no longer ignore their authentic selves.
In 2016, the duo made the difficult decision to move away from their friends and family, resigned their soaring banking careers in Calgary, packed their bags and took a leap to move to Hong Kong to pursue their music dream from scratch.
This gave rise to I.Con Twins!
Since then, they moved back to Calgary and travel between Canada and Hong Kong to continue to build their music career.
Their dedication, passion and hard work have led them to fulfilling their childhood dream and becoming their authentic selves as Performing Artists and Singer-Songwriters.
They've performed at MGM Resorts International, competed at The Voice of China Hong Kong, performed at Hong Kong's MacPherson Stadium, sang with a live orchestra at Queen Elizabeth Stadium and debuted their Canadian showcase with RAW Artists, an LA-based international independent arts and music platform, with an audience that filled a 3500 sq. ft. venue in Calgary.
"I.Con Twins is a talented duo with high potential to suceed in the music industry."

I.Con Twins are advocates of lifelong learning and personal development. In 2017, the duo were each awarded Distinction on their Grade 8 London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) certification. Within the same year, they also obtained Distinction on the internationally recognized vocal performance Rockschool certification.
In 2019, I.Con Twins self-launched their debut single, "Setting Fires" on one of Hong Kong's largest broadcasting stations, RTHK and debuted two live performances at Canada's largest Asian grocery store chain, T&T Chinese New Year Festival in Calgary.
They collaborated with SAIT School of Business in Calgary to present a virtual Keynote Concert for their post-secondary entrepreneurial class and received raving reviews.
“Setting Fires” and I.Con Twins’ story was featured on Stars HK and South China Morning Post - the daily newspaper with the highest regional readership in Hong Kong.
Within a year of their debut release, "Setting Fires" was awarded "Motivational Act of the Year" in the UK. With votes from their global fans, they became top 5 finalists in the "2020 YYCMA People's Choice Music Award" in Calgary. With the support of I.Con Twins’ Canadian and US supporters, “Setting Fires” got radio spins on CJSW radio station in Calgary and in independent radio stations in the United States and United Kingdom.
In 2022, I.Con Twins received the "Hottest Singer-songwriter Female Group" award from Hong Kong's SSP Alliance Music Charts in honor of their achievements in the music industry.
Whether performing in English, Cantonese or Mandarin, they believe music is a universal language that everyone understands no matter what tongue they speak. Through music, stories are told, emotions are shared, messages are conveyed and connections are formed. Music connects people no matter our backgrounds, cultures, genders and experiences.
Through their music and authentic social media content, they connected with fans from all over the world and amassed a growing online community of
16K+ followers on their socials.
Now, while travelling between Canada and Hong Kong, I.Con Twins are writing new music and working on their debut album.
"I.Con Twins are all about ‘Setting Fires’ to conventional expectations."
