Learned about this Singaporean artist, Faith Yang (via Jerron, who posted to the folks at Songcraft).
Jerron added that Faith Yang was formerly from “2Gals” (“两个女生”) that did quite well in Taiwan & Singapore in the late 1990s. I found this article from Channelnewsasia.
Faith Yang (not to be confused with another “Faith Yang” who’s implicated in a drug scandal) was interviewed on Podcast.sg recently (if you’re confused why the DJ started by talking about jewelery, Cavemen and Christmas trees, you’re not alone. But listen on).
In the audio interview, Faith explains more about Rebirth (www.rebirth.sg), a collaboration/ production house.
From this post:
And I am happy to have founded this audio production house. Other than that, we hunger for our own creation freedom and space as well. We invite other talents to work with us on the visuals side of things. We call ourselves, the ‘Rebirth’.
This page says “We love to work with others”.
Um… Adrian, you think Faith will consider singing for one of our songs? LOL
Faith just launched her first single titled “Simple Living” (you can hear samples here).
She’s got a nice voice.
And marketable looks.
Recipes for success.
I like the track that is featured in this post (starts off with a piano piece, and then the distortion guitars coming in). It doesn’t seem to be featured in the samples though.
The CD retails at SGD$11.90 and can be purchased online
Will I buy the album?
Let’s put it this way… it’s like some of our reviewers saying they like our SeaStars album on the whole, but they probably won’t buy it ‘cos New Age isn’t really their thing. Ah, but to compare SeaStars and Faith Yang would be to compare two proven amateurs with one proven singer/ composer!
In my rambling way, I’m not saying it’s a flat no. I may not be ordering the CD right this instant but l’ve subscribe to her blog. If her blog posts make a connection with me, and if her songs continue to be as good, then I’m sure it’s a matter of time that I make that purchase.
Anyway, good luck with the CD sales, Faith Yang. I’m happy to see a Singaporean artiste creating her own opportunities, and making her own brand of music.
