Hey music lover or readers out there,
its been a while. Have been pretty busy and excited.
Nowadays I am getting more music invites and emails
from musicians, companies and other cool musicians
even from USA!
So some little updates here:
1. Writing a music review on Slash Guitar Contest for Ruder Finn Asia
after that contest in Hard Rock Cafe.
2. Went to watch Angie Mattson (USA songwriter)
play at the bar/restaurant TAB.She's a
real friendly cool chick to talk music and chill out.
Those who have not been there, u should really check out TAB!
Its such a cool place. Somemore
it's a venue for supporting live original music.
3. Had a crazy cool time enjoying Jeremy Monteiro
Jazz Trio and Singapore Chinese Orchestra concert
playing original songs.
One People One Nation One Singapore
(national song composed by Jeremy Monteiro) was being jazzed up
by them. Made some new connections with marketing/publicity staff of
Singapore Chinese Orchestra. Guess I will have to help
them publicize a bit more on their interesting concerts here :)
Talking about music scene in Singapore,
I chanced upon this music video documentary
on the contemporary rock music scene.
I decided that its a good thing to share
the real situation about the music scene
in Singapore instead of relying on mainstream
The mainstream media don't necessarily
reflect the truth and sometimes
serves as propaganda to the government.
For those who are in mass communications
industry or currently studying mass communications,
u would know what I meant. :)
I shall not say no more.
Enjoy the video and see the music industry players
Of course subscribe to my music blog
if u like my stuff. :)
