It's finally happening! I'm playing for Red Dot Radio at the Esplanade Concourse, and also taking the opportunity to launch my second EP titled 'New Normal'. Mad thanks to the following peeps who made this possible: Mastering: Jack Koh Photography: Garick Bay Styling: Wen You Assorted sai kang: Alastair Leong (PR section) 'New Normal' is an album of change, as it chronicles the rapid transition from youth to adulthood, where everyday norms adjust and shift. From the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre stage to Producers’ Pick on Mediacorp Channel 5’s ‘Live N Loaded’, Singaporean singer-songwriter Nick Tan is no stranger to the local music scene. Accepted into the Noise Singapore Apprenticeship 2008/2009 cohort, Nick got his first experiences as a young musician under the mentorship of veteran local singer-songwriter Kevin Mathews. Through Noise Singapore, he made many industry connections as well as opportunities to perform. Such opportunities included being featured artiste on both Power 98's Acoustic Lounge Sessions with DJ Harry Corro, as well as the Originals Only Open Mic at the Singapore Art Museum. His foray as a recording artiste was marked by the release of his debut EP ‘Arranged Accidents’, which he recorded, produced and marketed himself. Distributed exclusively by Starbucks Singapore in May 2010, it was reviewed by local publications such as TODAY and the Business Times. Since then, Nick has remained active in the community – playing at venues from community centres in the heartlands to festive gigs on Sentosa, being a panelist on the National Library Board’s “Artists Anonymous” series to talk to young Singaporeans about being musicians, and most recently, nabbing Best Vocalist at HomeSongs 2014, a songwriting competition organised by Ocean Butterflies and Nexus. (TL;DR) Playing a live gig after a long hiatus. Come support lah. ------ Reviews for 'Arranged Accidents': “Tan already sounds better than many of the lead vocalists in local bands..” Christopher Lim - The Business Times “A good effort. ★ ★ ★” Christopher Toh - TODAY “Catchy, indie folk-pop; the track speaks of a lost love...” Samantha - RCGNTN: Singapore “These 5 tracks emphasize what an exciting talent Nick is, and his highly accessible songs should appeal to music lovers everywhere.” Kevin Mathews - Power of Pop www.nicktanmusic.com
