Combining her passion for words and music, Iris started writing songs when she was 12 because she wanted something of her own to sing. Her love for singing began at a young age without any formal training except for voice classes which she did in college where she majored in theatre studies. Iris and her diaphragm found each other outside the textbooks anyway. Her debut EP “The Importance of Being…” was released under the label, Above the Line Music which she set up with her then business partner and manager after she was already a working music producer in the Singapore music scene for several years. She is currently working on her solo studio album, which she refuses to release unless it’s reached the apex of expected perfection but hopes to have it out by the end of 2012.
