Gene Phoa is an ex-ad copywriter turned singer, songwriter and independent artist.

Leaving a career in the marketing industry, Gene packed his life into a backpack to travel through Asia and search for his true calling. While in India, he stumbled upon an open mic night and rediscovered his childhood passion of music.

Despite chronic health issues, Gene has performed at 200+ events, won a SCALA songwriting award and debuted a soldout cabaret show '500 Nights of Winter' at Adelaide Fringe 2021, all the while teaching and mentoring 200+ students at UniSA.

Through a unique fusion of song and story, Gene has inspired schools and audiences to listen to their heart and live their truth.
