Independent Taiwanese band EggPlantEgg was formed in 2012, by lead singer and keyboardist Ng Ki-pin. Most of EggplantEgg's songs are composed by Ng Ki-pin, and mainly in Taiwanese. The band's tracks tend to be in classic rock and blues influenced styles. Its music has successfully created a niche for what could be called "modern classics," giving Taiwanese songs a chance to gradually secure a place in the new generation of pop music.
