Actress, singer & lyricist Shavvon Lin has announced her new single “Enough for Love” will be released on September 9, 2022, with her full EP soon following. Shavvon Lin was recently awarded for her starring performance in the dramatic short film ‘Apart, Together.’
Reminiscent of ’90s R&B, Lin’s sensual and melodic vocals soar over a tranquil beat as she tackles lyrics about relationship insecurities.
Hardly a novice to the music scene, Lin lent her vocal talents for a handful of songs featured in China’s hit TV series, First Half of My Life, and furthered her musical efforts in collaboration with rap group Straight Fire Gang for the song “24 Years”. As a solo artist, Lin’s first official release was her 2020 song, “Love Me Later,” an explosive future bass anthem that showcased an excellent taste of what was coming from Shavvon Lin as a pop artist. The song was part one of an additional upcoming EDM trilogy EP to be released later this year.
Although music is currently taking a front seat, the talented Asian beauty is equally passionate about her acting career. In 2021, Lin won eight Best Actress awards at prestigious film festivals across the globe for her poignant and nuanced performance in Apart, Together. This included the Independent Shorts Awards, the London Independent Film Awards, and the New York Indie Shorts Awards.
Tackling the complex topic of China’s controversial one-child policy, ‘Apart, Together’ finds Lin playing the lead role of Yiru, a Chinese teenager who travels to America in search of her long-lost sister.
Born in Guangzhou, China, Shavvon Lin moved to Los Angeles at 18 to study film and communications at UCLA. She made her film debut in the independent short, False Awakening (2014) and later went on to star in A Better World (2015), Alibi (2016), and Good Night Butterfly (2017).
Apart from a thriving acting and singing career, Lin enjoys writing and is the co-editor and translator of the New Wave of Acting book series.
