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.

How’s everyone doing so far??

If you’re reading this, I’d like to convey to you my utmost appreciation for taking the time to do so.

Well it’s been pretty low-key for me so far in this month of August except for the usual teaching gigs, but it’s a good time for me to prepare myself for the upcoming performances and many recording sessions to take place starting September. 

As of now dates have been set in September for the tracking of drums for two projects:

1) Plate (Zhong Ren Koh, https://www.facebook.com/zhongrenkoh?fref=ts)

2) Lim Yi Liang – Jazz EP project. 

Dates for the tracking of another EP project for One Hat Town (https://www.facebook.com/onehattown?fref=ts) is to be confirmed. 

These are awesome opportunities to grow as a recording drummer and a dream come true in a small way! I’m very grateful to these guys for giving me a shot. 

More to come! Stay tuned!
