(Nguoinoitieng.vn) – Pham Toan Thang is a talented singer-songwriter, but he is equally “spontaneous” in music. Most of his compositions have won big prizes and marked the hearts of fans.
Composing the hit ‘Winter Girl’ at the age of 17?
Although still quite young, Pham Toan Thang has firmly established himself in the Vietnamese music industry.
|He marked the hearts of fans with immortal songs such as “Winter Girl”, “Four words”, “Drink tea”, “Rainmark”, “April is your lie”,…|
But few people know that Pham Toan Thang started composing music when he was only 17 years old.
The hit “Winter Girl” performed by Dang Khoi and Thuy Tien is one of the songs written while he was still in school. The song resonated a lot and made Pham Toan Thang’s name famous in the Vietnamese music market.
Thinking that after the success of “Winter Girl” the musician would immediately enter showbiz, he chose to step back.
|Pham Toan Thang said at the time he thought it was “lucky luck”. He himself is not a well-trained person in music, but the melody and the words naturally appear in his head like a “spring”.|
Therefore, Pham Toan Thang decided to take a moment to study, experiment and improve his life capital.
That doesn’t mean he’s given up on music. Pham Toan Thang still persisted in composing but did not release the number of products. He chooses to live as a simple student and the music is like a “silent” blood flow in his body.
Coming back to showbiz when I’m “mature”

In 2010, he submitted the song “Drink tea” to the Vietnamese song program and won the “Outstanding Contemporary Rock Song” award.
After that, he continuously released sweet and emotional ballad songs and in turn topped the music charts.
Pham Toan Thang shared that most of the songs were composed a long time ago but didn’t rush to release them.
|He thinks every song has to find someone who understands and is fit to play, instead of rushing to sell songs to any singer for a living, he will wait for “that person” to show up.|
From a talented but self-deprecating student, Pham Toan Thang has now found his own “voice” in music and is ready to pursue his passion.
Pham Toan Thang: “Thang’s music is now more personal”
We can say that Pham Toan Thang is a musician who lives in favor of “emotions”. He doesn’t force himself to “write” to make money.
He compares the work of composition to the collection of stones. Harvesting pebbles day by day then leaving them there, when the time comes they will be taken out to be refined into a product.
Like him, likes to experiment and save memories, then use them to bring music to life. Is this the catalyst that makes Pham Toan Thang’s music so authentic and “realistic”?
In 2019, he opened a cafe called Chill Phet – a place that sells light refreshments with singing activities with friends.
Pham Toan Thang is also gradually “tempering” the release of new songs. This has music lovers wondering whether he turned to business or not?
|Sharing with the press, he said, “Thang is still writing music, it’s just that he hasn’t found the next person to collaborate with him yet. Also, Thang’s music isn’t popular. now. I write more and more for myself every day, and I’m not trying to please anyone.”|
