"We record a bit of ourselves in every song that is written as an observation or musing of the times. The songs themselves are an entry in the musical diary of our young country."
"The Diarists" are a collective formed in 2012 to curate spaces for musicians in Singapore to perform with an emphasis on creating environments suitable for musical appreciation.
The Diarist Sessions Open Mic #40 – 8 March 2016
Kish is a singer-songwriter, influenced by 80's bands such as Guns & Roses, BonJovi and Aerosmith. Through his influences and experience gained from playing in cover bands before, he developed his own style of playing and singing. But his real interest was always in writing original songs.
He is currently in 2 bands. In 'Angel Wine', a 4 piece rock band with a 7 song album and 'The Alley Boyz', an acoustic trio that does covers & originals. He also does solo acoustic performances & he'll soon be releasing his new single titled, "I Pray". Catch him live and hear how it sounds like!
Born in Hong Kong, raised in Singapore, Travis is a singer-songwriter who grew up inspired by the poignant songs of yesterday and the sensibilities of modern pop music.
Let the gentle sounds of the guitar, and simple truths of love in words sung, unfold the summer of love in your heart.
Occasionally harbouring late night superhero ambitions, he has never met an onigiri he didn't like.
The Endleaves is a no-nonsense indie rock band who have been actively recording and touring since our name day on December 25th, 2012.

Widower's Palms is a one man band that plays a lonely brand of songs about defeat and getting by.
A dreamer, a lover and a soulful story-teller; 3 things that best describe this talented songstress.
Priscillia Xavier has been involved in the indie music scene for about 5 years now and has been actively gigging across various venues in the Klang Valley in Malaysia. More recently she has decided to take her music to audiences across Singapore, Jakarta and Bangkok.
Influenced by the likes of Jeff Buckley, Damien Rice and Alanis Morissette, this nightingale now strums and sings with a flair for Acoustic Soul and Indie Rock, while dabbling in other genres that inspire her music.
Catch Priscillia's shows and you'll come to know that she loves belting out a mix of interesting re-imagined covers and originals that talk of life, love, serendipity and meaningful encounters.
Maricelle & Sano
Maricelle is a Pop R&B artist, featuring heavy beats, unrestrictedly experimental electronic elements and hypnotic vocals. This millenial's perspective is a raw exposure of the new world, doused in a futuristic mural of pop culture and fluid identity. Her music nudges at androgynous ambiguity and the search for freedom in creative expression. Her self-written songs are euphoric and dreamy soundtracks that are always brutally honest - anthems about epiphanies, disconnection, wanderlust, change, individuality, empowerment, ambition and the pursuit of happiness.
Maricelle is currently producing her PURSUIT EP independently with music producer James Lye, in collaborations with NAC.
She will be accompanied by Sano Shimano, who is a Diploma Graduate in Higher Music Performance currently pursuing a BA (Hons) in Music at LASALLE College of the Arts majoring in contemporary guitar.
