Holla ,dear amigos! Just thought I’d share this interview whilst I enjoy my cup of morning coffee.

Anybody here plays Soultone cymbals? Would you like to share your experience playing them? I will be posting a review of my Soultone cymbal collection soon, so stay tuned..

King Crimson Live in Frejus (1982)

What stunning creativity, innovation, fearsome technique, and otherworldly rhythmic conception..

King Crimson to me is the ultimate Progressive Rock band. Bill Bruford manning a highly unique hybrid kit of acoustic drums. percussion, and early electronic drums.

Busy mid to late week!

1) Recording Session at a school this Thursday followed by a club gig (4 sets, starting 10.30pm)
2) Teaching Plus 2 band rehearsals on Friday 
3) Playing (percussion) with The Gladstones this Saturday at the Esplanade Concourse. 2 sets starting 4.30pm.

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!

Gig with Singaporean Singer-Songwriter Marcel Lee Pereira

Hey guys,

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last logged in here. Here’s a gig update:

I will be performing at the Esplanade Concourse this coming Thursday and Friday, with Marcel Lee Pereira who is one-half of the Singaporean Folk-Pop duo, The Gladstones, whom I had the pleasure of working with on their album launch gig last year.

Marcel will be showcasing his original songs and hand-picked covers in the all acoustic format that coincide with the Esplanade’s showcase theme, “New Beginnings”. Do drop by if you’re in Singapore!

Both evenings start at 7.15pm and we play 2 sets each evening..

PS: I’m not playing drumset for the gigs. Will be rattling and hitting some percussions and exercising my brush technique on the snare..

Performing with Singer-Songwriter, Jonathan Meur, at The Esplanade Concourse, 14th December 2012, 7.15pm

Hey folks,

Just a little shout of the above and I will be playing percussion on the gig.

Jonathan Meur is an up and coming singer-songwriter with interesting lyrical themes and arrangements brought to life by organic blend of largely acoustic instruments. It’s been a great pleasure working with him and I look forward to many more future collaborations on his musical projects.

Also on the gig, is a prodigious cellist named Zhong Ren Koh.

Come to listen and relax to some soothing original acoustic music.

Here’s one of the tracks we’re playing at the gig:
