First, the official word –

“Being the first Singapore female singer-songwriter to be invited to the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival, this will undoubtedly be Inch’s biggest platform to perform to date.

However, the road to Austin, Texas is fraught with difficulties as she faces the uphill task of raising the funds to undertake the trip. The amount required for the trip is huge for a struggling performer.

It is very heartwarming that her friends and peers in the Singapore independent rock scene have bandied around to help her cause. Bands performing genres as diverse as post-hardcore to indie rock will come together to perform a special acoustic show in support of Inch and her dream of performing at the SXSW Festival. Acts like A Vacant Affair, B-Quartet, Caracal, Plainsunset and more will be taking a break from their usual boisterous rock’n’roll to showcase a gentler side of their music.

Do join us for a night of reverie and fun and help out to fulfil an artist’s dream.”

On a personal note, back in 2007, I met and interviewed Inch (as the frontperson of Allura) and she struck me as an ambitious and driven young lady. So this achievement comes as little surprise to me. Certainly, she will do us all proud and fly the S-ROCK flag high in Austin, Texas. Therefore, everyone must do their national service and turn up for this fundraiser and give generously!
