"The long-awaited 10-track album showcases her versatility as a songwriter as she explores love, life, and loss through a variety of styles and genres with her svelte vocals melding them all together."
Produced, mixed and mastered by some of Singapore's finest musicians, the album is set to be one of the most eagerly awaited Singaporean releases of the year. ^ Press play to get a snippet of her soothing vocals as she performs with Umar Sirhan, who will be opening the show on Wednesday.

Let's Get Down to Earth! Start Your Own Edible Garden
Get your hands a little dirty this Saturday and learn the basics of how to start your own edible garden. You'll even bring home a pot of your own creation. Whether you have a balcony or garden, or just your office pantry, gardening is an age-old practice that is fulfilling and therapeutic. Nothing is more satisfying than sharing your harvest with your loved ones.
In this 1-hour hands-on workshop, you will get to learn the basics of starting your own edible garden at home. We will share information about soil fertility, watering, light, pots and pest management in this session, and at the end of the day, you will even get to bring home and nurture a pot of your own creation. What can be more satisfying than that?
FRIDAY 13 - SUNDAY 15 APRIL @ KATONG SQUARE
Katong Square Lifestyle & Vintage Market
We all love a good market! If you're a fan of all things vintage, this one is for you. Spend a day in the wonderful neighbourhood of Katong on East Coast Road and browse through a myriad of vintage finds. Apparently Singapore's true blue vintage flea market - we're told you can find everything from vinyls, jewelry, watches, fashion, art and home decor.
Tip: Walk down East Coast Road or Joo Chiat Road to look for some grub - it's full of great cafes, restaurants and local eateries. Our favourite? 328 Katong Laksa, which is right opposite Katong Square.
Entry is free /// Facebook event page.
