In preparation for his comeback album, Cherish, Steven Ma (馬浚偉) carefully put together a production team from all over the world, including collaborators from Los Angeles. Luckily, Steven admitted that he got discounts from friends in order to successfully lower the expenses for the grand production.
Since Steven decided to have his songs mixed by the German company, Stockfisch Records, and have his album be put together and made in Japan. It was estimated that he accumulated over $1 million HKD in expenses before the 30 percent discount from friends.
With the preparation for his new album underway as well as filming for his drama, Property Protectors <守業者>, Steven is working hard to maintain a balance between the two. Despite long hours, he smiled and happily said, “It’s tiring but I’m very happy with the progress. I’ve been singing theme songs for TVB for a long time now and I finally get to release a new CD. I know all the effort I’ve put into song writing and mixing will pay off in the end.”
Steven will be holding the promotional event for his album on June 25 and he invited his idol, Vivian Chow (周慧敏), to attend. Steven has been a loyal fan since he was still in school and luckily this time, he was able to contact Vivian and have her attend his album release. Steven will also be hosting an event in July to share his music with the audience. He admitted that a part of the event would be dedicated to his deceased mother, who still remains in his heart after many years.
