Shueh-li Ong Shueh-li Ong

synthesizer performance, theremin, tin whistle, voice, studio production, session- musician, clinician, available for collaboration or touring.

Shueh-li is best known for the way she melds electronic-pop-rock-jazz, her fav sci-fi instrument (the theremin) with synths, tin-whistle, piano, guqin & sound design.

Having written, recorded & produced 3 CDs under the Xenovibes concept, Australian born Shueh-li (Shelley) aka 'Singapore's 1st & only diva of the theremin' has stepped into a new musical chapter, bringing with her, her delightfully fresh yet poignant brand of ancient art meets new technology/east meets west sound. Though she has been compared to such self produced artists as Kate Bush & Madonna, Shueh-li's sound is very much her own. Shueh-li is also founder & leader of Xenovibes (electronic-progressive band.) Artists who have worked with her include Dean Parks, Shelley Carrol, Curtis Randall, Chuck Smith, Mike McKinney.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
