Our mission at Power of Pop as far as the Singapore Music Scene is concerned is to promote pop-rock + rock ’n’ roll music in whatever way possible. So it is with our great pleasure to highlight two singer-songwriters who have embarked on a rock ’n’ roll journey despite the lack of support for that style of music within the scene itself.
So stoked that the first day of Baybeats Open Stage went swimmingly! Thanks to The Esplanade, the wonderful crew, Josh and Jaz, the awesome artists and everyone who turned up. One more time today from 5.30pm!
Of a Singapore music scene where the majority of venues feature Singaporean songs. Where Singaporean songs are given the same love as foreign songs. Where Singaporeans are not unduly prejudiced against a song simply because it’s written by a fellow Singaporean.
Yes I am biased. It’s true that I love Singapore music because it’s made by people I know and love. But I love good music even more. For Singapore music to be better, our bands/artists need more opportunities to play their own music. It’s common sense, really.
That’s where platforms like StageFright @ Artistry and the upcoming SGMUSO Songwriters Night come in – to give Singapore bands/artists that opportunity. Nobody is born as an adult – it takes time for a baby to become a child and to be fully matured – so it’s the same with musicians/songwriters.
Here are some of the songwriters that will grace the Artistry stage on Wed, 21st Jan – please come down and support us and help make my dream come true!
The songwriters are the future of Singapore music. Make no mistake about that. STAGEFRIGHT is a platform for the songwriter and in its 16th edition at Artistry on Wednesday, 21st January, we continue in our support of the songwriter.
Cloud & Shadows aka Andy Philip has a elliptical concept of a bio. To wit,
“The absence of pain does not guarantee love.
But the absence of love can be painful and bitter.
Clouds & Shadows explores the realities of life, love and loss through music.
Giving voice to such personal experiences, it hopes to provide solace to the souls of others alike.”
