By now, dear reader, some of you would be aware that I am now the manager of Singapore band Cheating Sons. The first time we featured the Sons at Power of Pop was about a year ago in a PoP Confidential discussing the band’s Cat Eye EP. Since then, of course, Power of Pop has been active in promoting the Cheating Sons cause and deservedly so. After having released my album of 2010, the band has been going from strength to strength. In addition, spending time with Renyi, Don & Cheez doing interviews, watching their performances and simply chewing the fat has always been a pleasure.

So you can imagine my surprise and delight (and terror) when the guys asked me to manage them about two weeks ago. It made so much sense, I had actually decided to tone down my management activities and therefore, had the time and attention to dedicate to the band. Already, we have the opening spot at the upcoming Two Door Cinema Club gig at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 11th August (thanks to Greenhorn Productions) and we are now exploring various options within and without Singapore. I really believe in the band and it is certainly an exciting opportunity to us to work together pursuing the rock music that we love so dearly.

Power of Pop has always been more than a reviews site and has served as a vehicle for me to occasionally write my own musical adventures. Therefore, you can expect that I will be filing reports now as well, concerning life as the manager of Cheating Sons. Hopefully, the journey will be long and fruitful. I have a good feeling about this.

Oh, and if you need to get in touch with me regarding the band, the email is cheatingsons AT

…still there’s more…
