An extraordinary artiste with multifaceted talents, Cavin Soh captivates audiences with his endearing performances in music, acting and hosting.
A fervent music lover, Cavin discovered his calling as a performer when he won his first ever singing competition. His interest for music further led him to develop his song-writing skills, ultimately winning him the “Best Performance Artist” and “Best Performance” awards in another ballad singing competition. Though many record companies approached him to record an album, he put his dream on hold to fulfil his commitment to his parents to complete his degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Despite being in Scotland for his degree studies, Cavin continued to pursue his passion in music. A demo he sent landed in the hands of a recording company, Hype Records. After a live audition with the label’s boss Ken, Cavin was more than convinced that this was his path in life that he has to pursue upon graduating.
Together with two friends, Cavin formed a band called “Dreamz FM” and released three critically acclaimed albums in Singapore and Taiwan. The chemistry between the three members – be it in their talent for creating music and songwriting or the perfect complementary fusion of their voices together – was undeniably great that the United Nations invited them to New York to perform the 30th anniversary concert theme song to agencies from all around the world.
Soaring heights in his musical career, Cavin went on to explore other arenas of entertainment – acting. His first opportunity came when he was offered his first drama-acting role as a cold-faced comedian. This was the birth of Cavin – the actor. Personalizing characters and making them his own, Cavin grasped the craft of acting through perseverance, and successfully brought these words-created characters to life. Having endeavoured in diverse roles – both good and evil – he managed to win over critics with his hard work, earning him the “Best Supporting Actor” at the annual Star Awards 2005. Cavin’s bubbly personality, affable and quick-witted nature has also garnered him hosting roles. His effort was paid off by winning the “Best Info-Ed Program Host” in the Star Awards 2014 and he has since established himself as a popular in-demand host for both live and variety shows.
It hasn’t been an easy road for the multi-hyphenated. Despite all that he has achieved so far, Cavin humbly soaks in the experience and continually pushes boundaries to make him a better all-rounded artiste. Cavin has set the entertainment industry as his playground of a lifetime, and is addicted to continuously bettering his craft as an entertainer. You’ve not seen the best of him yet.
