Biography

Formed in 2014, The Quartermasters is Singapore's latest addition to the melting pot of musical acts coming out of the country island. Yet the band is uniquely global as it is local. Made up of members from Australia, South Africa and Singapore, the band is like an indie super group, bringing together the best musicians and creative forces who each have a strong track record in live performance and diverse song crafting. The band is fronted on lead vocals by Singapore born, Australian, Charles Jedidiah (formerly Charles J Tan) who has released two solo records since 2010, plays the resonator and the banjo. Sharing lead and harmony vocals is Amy Myers who grew up in South Africa, who also playing keyboards and percussion in the band.

Guitarist, Kelvin Ang, is the quiet creative force of the band, as music director, recording and mix engineer. He is also a woodwork craftsman by day and musician by any other time of day, also one fifth of indie post-rock outfit, Giants Must Fall. Perhaps the most passionate and busiest is Tim De Cotta, bassist and backing vocalist.
