Friday the 13th is a day of dread for many. But not for 25-year-old singer-songwriter Jon Chan.
Performing under the moniker JAWN, the local musician will be releasing his debut self-titled EP this Friday. Taking place in the uber cool open space Andsoforth, JAWN will be playing at the EP launch party with an amazing band consisting of cellist Lisa Haryono, TAJ bassist Tim De Cotta, The Good Life Project guitarist Sano Shimano and percussionist Teo Jia Rong.
For a little taste of JAWN's folksy tunes, check out the single 'Chase Away the Dark'.
Giving fans a sneak peek of the upcoming EP on Facebook, the fine art and graphic design graduate revealed that his debut EPs will come in the form of tiny wooden thumbdrives.
