Jason Chan (Chinese: 陳柏宇), also known as Chan Pak-yu, is a singer from Hong Kong. He moved to Canada at a young age. Chan attended Markville Secondary School in Markham, Ontario. In 2005, his musical talent was discovered in Hong Kong and is now signed with Sony Music. He has currently released six albums and one EP, titled First Experience, First Experience: Collectors Edition, Change, Close Up(EP), Can't Be Half, Put On, Quinquennium, Lost and Found and most recently, The Next Moment. Chan entered the music industry by the help of his friend Marco, who sent his previous competition demo to Sony BMG Hk. After Sony BMG received the demo they thought that he was very talented and called him for an interview. After the interview Chan signed a contract with Sony BMG (today Sony Music) and began his music career.
Previously Chan was working as a hair washer at a local Toronto salon. His previous ambition was to become a full-time hair stylist.
Chan's most popular songs are: "I Miss You", "I Will Be Loving You", "你瞞我瞞" (You Deceive, I Deceive) and "拍一半拖" (Half Dating). These are all slow love ballads and the biggest part of Chan's songs are in the same category. Chan often mentions that his voice is matched to sing slow sad love songs. But for his recent album "Can't Be Half": Chan said he wanted to try a new challenge: to sing a few fast songs. The decision gave him two fast songs: "最後的擁抱" (the last hug), which is a Japanese rock cover of Mr.Mrs, and "Imaginary Love" written by "Fiona Fung".
