About Ariane Goh
Having gone on a two-year hiatus from showcasing her new works, singer-songwriter Ariane Goh has been writing behind the scenes for regional artists and television, which is an entirely new journey that she finds joy in.

She finds her ground in R&B, soul and pop music and takes after influences such as Lianne La Havas, Tamia and Khalil Fong. Some of Goh’s notable works include Elimination by Koala Liu (TW) and Frame by Janice Vidal (HK), a written collaboration with Malaysian artist A-jia and Hong Kong producer Julian Chen.
