Update on Recording Projects: The Black Monolith and The Ninth Order

Hey folks,

Hope your start to 2015 was a great one. If it wasn’t, have faith, keep pushing in your chosen direction, make adjustments if necessary, believe in yourself, and things will get better as the year progresses.

I’m excited to announce that Black Monolith’s first album will be due for completion by end of March. We’ve also just done one gig for an Arts-event which was very well received. We have another gig coming up, an acoustic one, at Lasalle College Of The Arts.

I’m currently in the midst of another recording project for a Pop/Rock outfit called the Ninth Order. The band comprises:

Sunny Deo – Lead Vocals / Principal Songwriter

Kevin Mikhail – Lead Guitars

Sean Rezel – Rhythm Guitars

Bobby Chan – Keyboards

Muhammad Sultan – Bass

Yours truly – Drums, Percussion.

These guys are another great bunch to work with. Its a very relaxed and fun atmosphere – two things you need to make great music.

This project marks the first time that I’m working with an established producer. He’s none other than Mr. Duke Purisima, who’s a 2013 Grammy Nominee for his work on Arun Shenoy’s album, Rumbadoodle. It is a great honour and privilege to work with someone of those credentials, and it gives me both security and confidence in my contributions to the album. His advice helps alot in improving the drum parts and my performances that have been recorded so far have been above even my own expectations.

Jonathan Meur’s Woodnotes EP Out Now!

Jonathan Meur’s Woodnotes EP Out Now!

Hey folks, wow!

2 months since my last post. Apologies to those who’ve been asking the updates during this period for the delay! I’ll be gradually posting stuff on my activities the last two months and updating on stuff happening soon!

To kick it off again, I proudly introduce an EP that I played on for indie-folk artist, Jonathan Meur. Click on the title of this post to go to the bandcamp page where you can hear the tracks! I’ll let the music speak for itself and you decide how it fares. I must say though that this is a personal milestone for me to play on (almost) an entire EP. There’s more recording projects to come with Monsieur Meur and another lovely acoustic folk duo, One Hat Town. Hey! It seems like I’m gonna be a first-call folk drummer in Singapore, haha! 

Enjoy!
