In additional to pending national Pop hits for other artists such as Eason Chan, Stephanie Sun, Dadawa, Gigi Leung, in 2015 Lam founded a crowd funding website with fellow musicians Vicky Fung, Victor Tse and creative team Why Interactive’s Kevin Wong, dedicated to Chinese independent music artists.
