MICappella is Goh Mingwei, Tay Kexin, Peter Huang, Calin Wong, Juni Goh & Eugene Yip

(Pic by Goh Mingwei)

MICappella is going on the road with a Europe tour from 23 Jan to 8 Feb 2015. This Singapore-based acapella group will be performing in Germany and the UK, in places like Berlin, Hiddenhausen, Hamminkeln, Freiburg, Baden-Baden, Wilhelmshaven & London.

SG Music Mine decided to talk to the 6 of them about the group, their music, their new line-up, their favourite holiday destinations, and what we can expect to hear from them during their Europe tour.

Every journey needs to start somewhere, so we began by asking this lively bunch about the origins of their group, because we wanted to know... just WHO is MICappella?

How did MICappella get started as a group? And with the recent addition of 2 new group members, Mingwei & Kexin, how do you think that will affect you as a group?

The mastermind was Peter who had then, returned from Taiwan. He first met Calin at an interview where she was the interviewer. The irony is that they started chatting after finding out each other's acappella background and she ended up quitting her job to pursue this full-time.

Eugene was introduced through a close friend of Peter’s.

The group then met Juni for the first time at a local competition where his group got 1st place. When MICappella needed a tenor, we decided to give him a call.

Mingwei was really a stroke of luck when he kind of wrote back in response to our search for a new bassist.

Kexin has been a long time friend of the group and our previous Soprano Ein Ein. When we knew Ein Ein was considering to further her studies, we decided to give Kexin a shot, and here we are!

We are very supportive of Ein Ein pursuing her dreams, and are definitely still very close to each other. As with all changes, we need time to adapt to the new person. But because Kexin is also very professional, she definitely brings about a great energy, and we can't wait to see how our sound will evolve.

Briefly describe yourselves.

Calin: Rock chick that likes purple.

Juni: Black wearing colourful individual.
Peter: Hobbled, baseball-playing musician.
Eugene: Slightly colour-blind, collected and polished crooner.
Mingwei: Spec-wearing, blond, bass nerd.
Kexin: A petite dynamite and a small girl with a big voice.

Describe MICappella as a group in one sentence.

We are easily motivated by food and can get really crazy if we're allowed to.

So what is MICappella’s music like?

#vocalsonly #notkidding #nojoke

MICappella seems to be a bilingual group, the songs you sing are in English and Mandarin. Was it a deliberate decision made by the group to be bilingual? How did that come about, and why?

It was a deliberate decision to do more Mandarin songs than usual, because we always felt that there needed to be more groups doing Mandarin songs, since we are effectively bilingual and all of us are Chinese. We also saw the lack of Mandarin songs, even in China and Taiwanese groups, since this started predominantly in USA and later, Europe. So we kind of saw a small gap in the scene and wanted to fill that gap.
However, the fact that we are Singaporean means that we can and still love to sing English songs as well! Therefore, we wanted people to know this unique quality that we, as Singaporeans, have and should be proud of.
We understand that you’re touring Europe. What songs will MICappella be singing for this “East Meets West” themed concert tour?

We will be singing quite a lot of the latest pop hits, such as “Happy”, “Shake It Off”, mash-up of a Linkin Park and Jolin Tsai song, Iron Maiden, Mayday, and Mandarin classics, such as “One Night In Beijing”, to showcase our type of music, energy and languages. Not forgetting our own original song, “Here We Go” as well!

MICappella has sung onstage in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Europe & the USA. Which is the most memorable place in the world you’ve performed in, and why?

Juni: USA, coz we sang in Mandarin but the audiences who didn't understand what we were singing were still moving and waving their lights to the song.

Calin: Shenzhen, when we took part in the Sing-off. It's an experience that we can never get anywhere else.

Mingwei: Shanghai, coz there's my first show.

Eugene: Hong Kong’s HKAMF, where we performed alongside many stars, including SNSD. Another place is Chengdu's AMC Live Rock Festival where the crowd was huge and the line-up included Suede, FIR and more.
Are there any interesting on-the-road stories to share with us?

That would be our first-ever overseas trip together to Europe back in 2011! We lived in a motorhome, where 8 of us squeezed into 1 van. We had to drive, eat, poop, live, sleep, cook together, and it really allowed us to very quickly get to know each other on a very intimate level. We shot a music video with scenes all over Europe, and we all sky-dived while Eugene was the domestic god who stayed behind to cook up a feast.

What touring advice can you give a group that’s just starting out now?

Don't be over-rehearsed before going for a trip, because you will burn out before you get there. There will be a lot of time on the road with each other, so instead of going off to do your own thing, it's a great time to also work on your music as a team and bond!
Since we seem to be talking a lot about travelling, what is your favourite holiday destination, and why?

Calin: New Zealand, I like nature and there are lots of exciting outdoor sports I can do.
Juni: Hongkong in December, because it's nice and cold and there are lots of sales.
Peter: Taipei, because I spent quite a few years there, so it feels like home.
Eugene: New York, because I lived there for a few years, so it feels like home.
Mingwei: Taiwan, as it's easy to communicate and the locals are very hospitable.

What is your favourite thing to do while on holiday?

Calin: Try new food.
Juni: Get to know the locals, make new friends and get to know their cultures.
Peter: Eat the local cuisine.
Eugene: Ransack the local gourmet grocery stores for local ingredients that cannot be found in Singapore.
Mingwei: Eat.

If you had to recommend to your fans a place of interest in your favourite holiday destination for them to visit, where would it be, and why?

Calin: Rotorua in New Zealand. You can visit the hot springs and the multi-coloured geothermal pools. It's a sight that you can't get almost anywhere else.

Juni: City gate outlets in Hongkong. It's at the foot of the mountain where the Giant Buddha is at, so you can fulfill your spiritual needs in the morning, and your material needs later in the day.

Peter: Nan Ji Chang night market in Taipei! It's a night market that only the locals know how to go to, accessible only by cab or your own transport. The food is good and very cheap!
Eugene: Metropolitan museum of Art in NYC, they actually transplanted an entire Egyptian temple into the museum compound, and there's a lot of great street food along the corner.

Mingwei: Fengjia night market in Taiwan. There's a lot of good food and shopping.

See it to believe it, hear it to love it.

Their first full length album “Here We Go” is available here!
MICappella recently released a cover video of Taylor Swift’s “Style”, and it features their newest group member Tay Kexin.
SG Music Mine wishes them all the best as they leave for their Europe tour today!
Bon Voyage MICappella!

Gentle Bones… also known as Joel Tan… what can I say about him? He’s 20 years old, picked up the guitar when he was 16, but has never had a music lesson. To date, he has written almost 100 songs, and he keeps on writing till he finds the good ones. He has no musical background, and he is the first in his family to pursue music. All I personally know about him is that he's played a number of gigs in the past 4 months or so, including some music festivals like the 100 Bands festival, IGNITE! Music Festival and BeerFest Asia.

I have to admit, this article almost never happened. Why? Because I had a hard time thinking about what to write about him. I tend to enjoy writing “meaty” articles and interviews that are somewhat serious and biographical, and usually, there’s more information available that’s either provided to me, or that I can easily find online, when I prepare to write my piece. But in this case, there wasn’t much useful information online about Gentle Bones, because he’s a new face, and he’s pretty much kept his official website quite minimal (or at least that was the case when I was trying to do some background research on him).
Apart from the various articles and interviews that the mainstream media had already done on him that might still be available online, there wasn’t much else to go on, and I didn’t want to write something that repeats what everyone has already said about him. So what does one do when one is apparently stuck? I decided to go back to basics, and just talk about what I personally know about him, and what my personal experience is in finding out about the musician known as Gentle Bones.
Let’s see… I first heard his name mentioned just before attending Music Matters Live with HP this year, and I first saw him in person after he played at Razer’s The Art Of Sound gig on 30 Apr 2014 at Lower Case, located at Lasalle College of the Arts.
Charlie Lim was the main act that night, and some of the other supporting acts included Gareth Fernandez, Stopgap, .gif and Gentle Bones. I got there just in time to see Charlie Lim, and missed all the other acts playing before him, including Gentle Bones.
The first time I ever heard him play live was during the Made In Singapore showcase at Music Matters Live with HP on 23 May this year. I remember rushing over to Paulaner’s at Clarke Quay, and finding myself trying to squeeze my way into what was a tightly packed venue. He appeared onstage at 8.00pm and played a 30-minute set that included 7 original songs, among them were the 5 songs that would be in his EP.
My first impression of this live gig was that he pretty much had a college-age crowd following his music. His songs had a big sound that I could imagine would be played on an epic scale in arenas worldwide, with tens of thousands of people singing along. Gentle Bones’ brand of Folk Pop music is easy to listen to, pleasing to the ear, and I’m not sure why, but it even reminds me of older acts like America or The Eagles, even though he personally names Ed Sheeran as one of his big influences.
I probably don’t need to mention this, but I will anyway, because the story just wouldn’t be complete without it.
And then it happened… his music started being played on the radio, his songs started climbing the charts, his music videos were getting over 100,000 views each on YouTube, his music started selling like hotcakes on iTunes, and the tickets to his EP Launch started being snapped up online at Peatix.
Somewhere in the midst of all this buzz, I decided that it was time to make contact with the man himself.
Now that you know how I first came to know about Gentle Bones, and what my first live music experience with him was like, here’s the deal…

Gentle Bones is having his EP launch tomorrow night, 30 Aug 2014, Saturday, from 7.00pm onwards at TAB (located at Orchard Hotel). His guest artists for the night are Gareth Fernandez and Samantha Rui. From what I understand, the $30 tickets which come with the physical EP are SOLD OUT! However, the $25 standard tickets are still available. These same tickets will cost $35 if you just show up at the door tomorrow night though, so best to get them online at NOW! Hope to see you there!

And remember to keep your eyes right here on SG Music Mine, because there’s gonna be more on Gentle Bones soon!

Some time last year, I came across this video on YouTube. Charlie Lim was jamming with this other guy. They were doing a cover of a D’Angelo song called “Lady”, and my ears pricked up! Who IS this guy? He’s really not bad at all. Actually, he sounds pretty awesome! That was how I first came to know about Dru Chen and his brand of pop, funk and soul music (or “neo-soul music”, so it’s been called by some).

I finally got to meet him last month, he was going to perform with Bec Laughton and Gareth Fernandez, so I decided to go along and watch him play at Music Matters Live with HP. I wanted to see if he was really all that he seemed to be on YouTube. Let’s just say that he was even more impressive when he played live.

As it turns out, one thing led to another, and I found myself having this one-on-one interview with the man himself. We were sitting at a table in this lovely Irish pub called Molly Malone’s at Boat Quay. Dru was doing 3 sets that night, but between sets, he made time to chill out and chat with me.

So what’s he like in person? Ooooh, don’t let me spoil it for you, just have a read of what he said during our interview, and see for yourself what a warm, talented and understatedly charming guy he is.

Q: How did you get started playing music?

When I was 5, my parents got me this little Casio keyboard.

They enrolled me in a group class in Eltham North (a little country suburb out of Melbourne) with a bunch of kids. Our teacher quickly figured out that I was learning faster than the other kids so my mum started me on one-to-one tuition with a private teacher. Her name was Ms. Thompson.

We moved to Singapore when I was 7 and my parents tried to get me in a piano program but it was full, so they enrolled me in violin instead. I ended up learning both classical piano and violin for 11 years.

At the same time, I picked up the guitar, bass and drums on my own in Middle School. I studied at OFS (Overseas Family School) and our music teacher was kind enough to let me into the music room after hours when everyone had left. I practiced in that room for hours from the age of 13 to 16. It was then I started writing songs and performing them in cafes and bars.

I moved back to Australia at 17 to study music full-time at Queensland Conservatorium of Music. Yup!

Q: At what point did you decide that music was going to become a career for you?

I think I realized pretty young, around 12 or 13. I used to get obsessed with things and go through phases as a kid. When I was a toddler, I used to obsess over fans for some reason, like literally pedestal fans, ceiling fans and whatnot. Then it changed to cars when I was 5 or 6, then Basketball. The last one was music. I’m still obsessed!

I was blessed with a good ear and I practiced by arranging music for school bands, playing a variety of instruments during school concerts.

The harsh realities of the business kinda hit me after I graduated uni, as the music profession is a windy one with no definitive “pathways” to follow. However, through the encouragement of my peers and mentors, I’ve managed to stay on track! I still teach and play sessions, but my main focus is my original music.

Q: What’s been great about being a musician so far?

The ability to express yourself through your own songs both onstage and in the studio is the greatest feeling.

Travel is another huge plus, especially if the purpose is for music. When you see foreign audiences reacting wonderfully to your music, you can’t help but feel the universal power of music. I’ve been fortunate enough to have played shows all around Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, The Philippines, and shortly I’ll be heading over to the US.

Q: What are some of the challenges you face in pursuing music professionally?

Not knowing what tomorrow brings! Constantly being on the road or being in flux with no sense of permanence. It’s also an emotional rollercoaster ride because all a myriad of factors (fear of failure, actual failure, missing home, missing friends, relationships, shows not going as planned, logistical issues, nervousness, sleep deprivation, wacky schedules). I think I’m learning to deal with these things better as I get older.

Q: You play many musical instruments, but which one do you enjoy playing the most, and why?

Oooo, this is a hard question! I go through phases of liking the piano more than the guitar and vice versa, but ultimately I’m a guitarist at heart. I’m particularly attached to my main guitar, the white Fender Stratocaster.

This guitar has been with me through thick and thin. Every country, every nervous gig, every recording session, every break up, it has become a part of me.

Q: Tell us more about your songwriting process. How do you do it? Is there some kind of method or ritual to it for you?

I write from pure emotion and inspiration. After I capture the initial spark, I polish it up with form, hooks, and whatnot, but it’s so important to capture the feeling when it’s happening. You just have to be ready to capture it on a voice memo on your phone or on your laptop.

Method-wise, sometimes I write from titles. ‘Turnaround’ and ‘You Bring Out TheBest In Me’ are examples of this. I knew I wanted to write a song with the title as central hook and so once I got that down, the rest was basically filling in the blanks and making it cohesive.

Q: What inspires you in your songwriting?

Life, relationships, dancing, having a good time, reminiscing. These are topics I can write sincerely and honestly about. Occasionally I do get inspired to write songs after hearing or jamming on other people’s tunes. I’m a bit of a music nerd, so naturally I spend hours listening and transcribing historically significant music. If something strikes me or grabs a hold of me, I might use that as the creative spark for a new song of my own.

Q: Every song has a story behind it, walk us through the songs in your “Intentions” EP.[ For those of you who wanna listen as you read the answers below, all 5 of these songs are now available on iTunes ]

1. You Bring Out The Best In Me
I wrote this about the kind of girl I’d like to date, going out to town, feeling proud to have her by my side and all that! Now, it’s kinda taken a different meaning live because I’ve added lots of audience participation bits. I end up dedicating the song to the entire audience every night! It’s become a bit of a crowd favourite, I’ve been told!

2. Lovelight
I always wanted to do a four-to-the-floor type thing, but not a full on dance track. It still had to have a soulful vibe. It’s got a rock element too, with the wailing guitar solo!

3. Turnaround
I wrote this one from the title. It comes from the old blues thing, where you play the 12 bar blues, and at the end of the sequence, you play a ‘turnaround phrase’ that gets you back to the top. I wanted to write a song that looped around like that, but I also wanted to incorporate “turnaround” in the lyric. I also had to make it relatable, so I decided to write about a girl that was on her way out the door after breaking up, and that I can’t make her change her mind, but if she wants to, please don’t hesitate and just come back, ‘cos the door is always open. That kinda thing.

4. Involved
This was an exercise in minimalism. A spacey future-soul thing, with Prince influences as well. I particularly like the call-and-response during the guitar solo between the backing vocals and the searing lead.

5. Trainwrecks
The first song I wrote! This was during High School, I think I was 15 or 16.
“All the memories of a difference life remain”. A past love.

Q: What is your favourite original song that’s been released to date, and why?
It’s a tie between ‘You Bring Out The Best In Me’ and ‘Turnaround’, my two singles. I guess those two are just the right blend of catchiness and soul.
At the risk of sounding terribly clichĂ©, I still think overall my favourite original song hasn’t yet been released. Just like John Mayer said in “No Such Thing”, “I’d like to think the best of me is still hiding up my sleeve”. Artists are always morphing and changing, responding to outside environments and inner emotions. The next single is definitely a more personal, heart-on-sleeve affair.

Q: We understand you’re working on more songs for an upcoming album. How’s that coming along, and when can we expect it to be released?
It’s coming along great! Between travelling and playing shows, I get pockets of time to arrange studio sessions and collaborations with other musicians. We’re looking at a single later this year. Keep an ear to the ground!

Q: Will any of the songs in the EP be in the album too, or are you writing all new songs for the album?
All fresh material!

Q: You recently played at Music Matters Live with HP and attended the conference, tell us how you feel about your Music Matters experience, and what did you get out of it?
It was great to have so many industry people congregate in Singapore for three days. The talks were inspiring and it was great to see how down-to-earth certain music luminaries such as (The Black Eyed Peas) and Daniel Glass (Glassnote Records) were. Hustling and networking are necessary evils in the music business, and I’m a naturally shy and introverted guy, so at times it felt a little intimidating, but all up, I enjoyed the experience. Pop/Soul singer Gareth Fernandez is a good friend of mine. He got me onstage to sing a few tunes with him during his sets, and that was really fun! I also played guitar for Australian singer Bec Laughton as well, which was awesome.

Q: You’re Australian, but you seem to have a strong Singapore connection, can you tell us more about it?

I was born in Australia but I grew up in Singapore between the ages of 7 and 17. I currently travel back and forth between Melbourne and Singapore.

Q: Share with us some of your favourite things.

Fave Singapore food:
Prata. Plain and simple, from Jalan Kayu.

Fave place in Singapore:
I love hanging out at Blujaz Café.

Fave movie:
‘Frequency’ starring Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel.
One of the best father and son movies of all time.

Fave actor/actress:

Fave song:
Too many to mention. “Love Of My Life” by Queen, “Send It On” by D’Angelo, “Since I’ve Been Loving You” by Led Zeppelin are three that immediately come to mind.

Fave musician:
The perfect blend of Prince, Stevie Wonder and D’Angelo
Fave colour:
Kind of Blue, Blue in Green :-)
[ Hmmm, I think he means turquoise, like an in-betweenish blue & green colour, maybe? ]

Fave past-time:

Running and cycling. Long drives out in the country.

Q: Other than the upcoming album you’re working on, what are your plans for the future?

Live each day as it comes. Be prepared to make strong decisions. Keep healthy. Love deeply.

On a parting note, check out the futuristic music video for Dru Chen’s latest single “Turnaround”.
Dru’s now in LA, and will be performing live at Witzend, 1717 Lincoln Blvd, Venice, CA 90291.
The date to be there: 17 Jun 2014
The time to remember: 9.00pm

Today, J. Clement officially released the music video for "Body Move", the song that’s been at #1 on the Hot 91.3FM chart for the past month, and I’m happy to say that I got a chance to talk with the man himself on this special occasion.

This was an interview that I did for thePower of Pop webzine, and it was published online earlier today. I’ve used the same title above, and the interview content is below, with a few additions of my own… like ooooh, a some extra trivia just for all you SG Music Mine readers, plus you can watch the official "Body Move" music video, and there's also J. Clement’s Twitter info… check it out!

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity of interviewing a very talented new R&B singer-songwriter from Singapore called J. Clement. He worked with Marc Lian from Trick on his latest single, “Body Move”, and it has remained at #1 on the Hot 91.3FM chart for the past month! Wanna know more about him? Read on.

What got you started in music? Give us the lowdown on your musical history.
I started playing the saxophone when I was 12 years old, and as the years went by, I wanted to learn an instrument in which I could play and sing at the same time, and that's how I got started playing the guitar. Having being influenced by Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, John Mayer, and YouTube sensations like Gabe Bondoc & Tori Kelly, my music tends to lean more towards R&B.

When did you realise that music wasn’t just a past-time for you?
As I got older, I started to discover and realise my passion in music and singing, and that's when I knew that this wouldn't just be a past-time for me. I like to believe in chasing dreams and pursuing what you're passionate about, and that to me is the definition of being successful; doing what you love and being happy.

What made you want to pursue music as a possible career?
I've always wanted to be a singer, ever since I was a little kid. So I guess when I started to write more music, it made me think that this could be a possible career option.

Did you encounter any obstacles along the way?
I've faced many obstacles through my music career experience. From people just disliking my music, to legal issues, to managing myself as an artist. It's been rough, but it’s been one heck of an experience that I have learnt from.

What does the “J” in J. Clement stand for, and what made you decide to use this as your stage name?
I wanted to have my Chinese initials in my artist name. Li Jie is my Chinese name, but I didn't want to put “LJ”, because that's a little misleading. Well, the term “LJ” in Singapore means something else that’s pretty crude. That’s why I decided to go with just the "J" instead.

How many songs do you have out already, and where can we listen to them, or buy them?
I currently only have two songs out. "Crazy For You" and "Body Move" and they can both be purchased on iTunes! I also post original songs in my YouTube channel.

“Body Move” is your second single, your first was a more pop-sounding offering called “Crazy For You”, did it get any airplay and did it chart? Tell us more about your first single.
My first single, "Crazy For You", unfortunately did not get as much airplay as “Body Move” has gotten so far. I'm not too sure where it placed in the charts, but it did not make it to the Top 20 of 987FM.

What inspired you to write “Body Move”?
“Body Move” was inspired by my life experience. It might be about a girl that I was madly crushing on at the point in time when I wrote the song, haha!

Why is “Body Move” your most favourite, among the songs you’ve written so far?
It's my favorite, because I am really happy with how the song turned out. I started off writing the song with just my guitar, but when I gave it to Marc (from Trick) to co-write and produce the song, he just took the song to another level. Marc is awesome. Super-talented musician, singer, songwriter, producer... just sayin', haha!

So how did you meet Marc Lian from Trick, and is there a story behind how “Body Move” got co-written and produced by him?
I met Marc through my previous record label, which got us connected. I really enjoy working with him, as he's a really chill and easygoing person to work with. Well, I started writing the song in my room one night, and sent it to him, asking if he was interested to work on this song with me.

Can you tell us more about your songwriting process? How do you go about writing your songs?
I start writing my songs with just humming a melody, and having a fixed theme in mind. Then, I put lyrics and chords into it that express what I want to say through music.

The “Body Move” video is officially being released on 15 Apr, where was it filmed, and is there a story behind how it got made?
Yes! It was filmed in Yellowbox Studios, Arab Street, and at a close friend's house. After “Body Move” (the song) was produced, Yellowbox Studios contacted me through email, asking if we could work together. It was just the perfect timing.

“Body Move” has been #1 on the Hot 91.3FM chart for 4 consecutive weeks now, how do you feel about that?
It's so crazy that it has stayed #1 for a whole month. I'm so thankful to every single person who has voted for me everyday. This is definitely a huge milestone for me. I feel so blessed and honoured to be in this position.

What are your plans for the future?
I'll be going to Los Angeles to further my studies in Business Administration by the end of this year, but I'll definitely keep making more music for sure. I'm actually in the process of writing a song with Howard Chan. It's sounding really good so far.

Sell yourself in 3 lines.
Wow! This is the toughest question, haha!
I guess…
I'm someone who's really passionate about music.
I believe that everyone should be encouraged to chase their dreams.
Some people call my music old school... but old school R&B is what it's all about.

Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. We wish you all the best in your studies and look forward to hearing more good music from you soon.

Watch for the official release of J. Clement’s “Body Move” music video on 15 Apr 2014 in his YouTube channel and check out his official Facebook page.

Just for SG Music Mine readers, here is some extra trivia...

  • J. says that the concept for the music video was a simple one. It's about how a guy meets a girl and he can't stop thinking about her. So there are a lot of flashback scenes included in this music video.
  • The "Body Move" music video was produced by Rennie Gomes from Yellowbox Studios, and filmed and directed by Elias Lo from AudioVaid Studios.
  • J. also says he plans to have an EP, but it probably won't be out so fast, 'cos he's still in the process of writing songs for it. He says he would love to create more R&B music, as that's the scene he grew up in.

And yes, J. Clement is on Twitter, so be sure to follow him there too!

Finally, here is the long-awaited official music video for J. Clement's "Body Move"... pretty good stuff, considering it is his first official music video.
