Singapore musicians would be familiar with Mike Spinks, as Spinks has in recent years been instrumental in organising several open mics across the island, most significantly at the Hard Rock Cafe. Now, Spinks has taken the logical step of harnessing the online local music community to initiate the City65 Music Festival to be held on Saturday 15 April 2017 from 2pm. With City65 coming up very soon, we got Spinks to share with us his thoughts about the local music scene, his involvement and of course, the festival itself.
Singapore music trendspotters would have observed the rise of female singer-songwriters paired with electronic music producers that have ignited serious interest on streaming platforms like Spotify.
