The Diarists and Working Title present Verses, a singer-songwriter showcase.
What do you do after the first blushing performance at an open mic? Because now that you've gotten a taste, the words keep flowing. Who will you let listen to your secrets? Those scribbles kept in notebooks closed at the sound of footfalls.
Verses is a platform for up-and-coming singer-songwriters to showcase their original penned thoughts and drafted voices to hone their craft. Armed with their very own rendition of musical expression and raw unbridled talent, these budding musicians will perform for Verses, a singer-songwriter night that will be held in Working Title (our lovely venue partner) monthly, on the last Thursdays over the next 6 months.
Singer-songwriter nights are aplenty in Singapore, but it is not often that you have a carefully curated line-up of fresh-faced acts, an open honest setting fit for music appreciation, and the audience giving the artists their due undivided attention. Keen listening ears and a fitting environment are what the Diarists constantly seek for our promising young musicians. Working Title, an intimate cafe tucked away in Arab Street, will provide just that.
This July 31st, in our very first Verses session, we are proud to present:
Daphne spends much time thinking, and when contemplation and prose could neither contain nor reconcile, she started writing songs. Her music captures a warm and wistful tone and articulates themes of life and death - and the love in between. With a background in experimental and folk choral music Daphne was also the first runner-up for Singapore Writers Festival's Poetry of Song in 2011.
Jaime is a singer-songwriter who writes about life, death and love (or the lack of it). She has performed at venues such as the Esplanade, Home Club, Timbre, and is a regular at local open mic spots. A recipient of the Noise Singapore Award for Music in 2012, Jaime's debut EP “Skin” is slated for release later this year.
