Crafted By – Singapore’s Music Scene: The Reality | S1E12

The finale of our Crafted By series is the 5th part of our Singapore Music Scene review: the reality of earning a living through music. We look beyond pop hits and at other areas: ringtones and slot machines sounds, composing for film, voice-overs, DJing, running an audio studio – there are so many other ways to make coin. We hear deep thoughts from Singapore’s first Grammy Nominee and talk to a singer-songwriter-producer whose day job is hosting a show on late night radio.

Crafted By – Singapore’s Music Scene: The Performance | S1E10

The 3rd installment of our 5-part look at the Singapore Music Scene explores how playing “live” is now more important than ever: with physical music sales down, concert income is a huge revenue stream. We talk with the home of the Performing Arts, The Esplanade, and hear from Singapore’s top live music promoter, Michael Roche of Lushington Entertainments, about the scene in the Lion City. 

From upcoming singer-songwriter, Adia Tay, we hear “Home & Shelter” from her EP “Kintsugi” and preview our 4th part which looks at The Media.
