A child is lost in the wilderness, and a mother and father grieves their loss. Where he is, the gentle murmuring winds causes the child to quiver while his memories of home slowly erode. The child is faced with a dilemma—to dwell in this bliss eternally or to return home. Compass tells the story of the child finding his way home, as his family holds on to hope for his return.
Since he started his solo music career in 2015, Bay has been carving a place for himself in the Singapore music scene with music propelled by lush acoustic guitar, strings, horns and more. From his debut performance at the Esplanade Concourse, Bay has gone on to perform at the Red Dot Design Museum Singapore, the SingJazz club, and the inaugural Neon Lights Festival.
Tickets on sale at sistic, ticketholders may purchase the album at the venue for $10.
