Richie Goods and Chien Chien Lu “CONNECTED“ just received 34th Golden Melody Awards “Best Instrumental Album“. “CONNECTED” was formed in 2020. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Richie Goods and Chien Chien had frequent conversations about the Black Lives Matter movement and the unwarranted hate crimes against Asians. They decided to do a project that would unify people and invoke imagery of love and peace. As often happens, music was the catalyst that bridged the gap and resulted in a rare collaboration; a partnership that produced “The Path” Sep. 2020, “We Three Kings” Nov. 2020, and “Rain” Dec. 2021. They decided to cement their musical relationship by creating “CONNECTED”, Together, Richie and Chien Chien create an exciting, new, energetic listening experience and attract new audiences everywhere. Their new release, “Richie Goods & Chien Chien – CONNECTED” was released January 13 2023 and has been on the jazz week charts for 12 weeks. Chien Chien was voted top “10 emerging jazz artist” by the Grammy recording academy and also top ten rising stars by downbeat magazine. 

Crazy as it seems, somehow during the shutdown we felt more free and inspired to create.  Through all the chaos and violence, we wanted to do a project that would unify people and invoke imagery of love and peace. 

We realized one of our pieces, Donnie Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free” does just that. It speaks of freedom and balance. 

We believe we all share one energy, one connection.

XOXO, Richie & Chien
