John Tianqi grew up in England to an English Irish father and Chinese mother, both of whom are musicians. From a young age he was introduced to many different styles of music but shown an interest towards hip hop and traditional chinese music. He has always had an interest in blending traditional chinese music with modern music, and experiments regularly with both sounds.
