"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.

20, 149cm tall, and a voice. These are the ingredients chosen to create her sappy happy songs. But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction - Chemical X (aka lack of proper sentencing and an eccentric love for cats. And old cartoons.)

Hello! I have been performing and playing music for almost 3 years now. I do vocals mainly and I play the guitar too. I have sang songs ranging from One Ok Rock's Wherever You Are to Bruno Mar's When I Was You Man.
I write songs too, which are mainly English and I hope to show people my music!
Just a fellow muso new in a new enviroment looking to play as much as possible
