[Exclusive] Interview with The Sam Willows


The Sam Willows are back with an all new look and music! The recently released music video “Keep Me Jealous” features zesty aesthetics and an electronic pop sound. When asked what the video is about, member Narelle answered "It kind of aligns with the song “Keep Me Jealous” which talks about the balance you've to keep in your relationship. In a sense, it's to keep your partner interested, not to let go and to take everything for granted. But also, too much jealousy kills the relationship. The tension between jealousy and love. The little character in the music video is kind of like “jealousy”. Four of us just play like characters in the house, quite a loosely based thing so it flips and causes the destruction of everything. So at first it was all like fun and games and suddenly you start to get a bit of jealous and jealousy turns to anger and in the end we all explode. And it's just there because he won."


The Sam Willows expressed their gratitude towards Sony Music as they were able to travel around the world. Benjamin shared that they were given a chance to go to Sweden to write an album and it was a mind-boggling experience as they never thought they'll be able to do music professionally outside of Singapore. Narelle shares that the experience in Sweden making music was a dream come true.

When asked what advice would they have for those who wanted to start making music, Narelle states that to just do it and to have commitment. The one thing that separated The Sam Willows from the others were that they've made a conscious effort to pursue music. “If we are going to invest the time, friendship or whatever, we're not going to leave half-way. We're here to the long run.” - Narelle

“I think what's important is that we never have a plan B. We weren't going to say if our original music doesn't work out, let's just a play in a bar or a club. We only have plan A and we're stuck with plan A and still sticking to it.” - Jon

The Sam Willows debuted on the music scene five years ago, and have stick together throughout. Sandra shares that they have graduated from friends to family. “Family is a lot of different from friends, it's like you cannot quit family”.

The group showcased a different style of music compared to their previous album, when asked if they had anxiety, Benjamin shares “Yes and no because if a band doesn't change in the span of it's life, then it's kind of boring. For us, we know that whatever creative decision we made no matter if it's music or fashion, some people will be on board and some people will not but that's just life”. The four members recognized that everyone has an opinion and that they were cool with whatever the feedback they received from the fans. The Sam Willows are known for their acoustic take on music, with their upcoming album, Narelle articulated that they do in fact love the acoustics but they want to move pass that. However, fans will certainly still hear their acoustics cover of their songs when the group performs live.

Their new song is catchy and a great dance track. Benjamin and Narelle shared that their favorite line from the song is the chorus - “To Keep Me Jealous ~”, Benjamin shares it is quite a hard line to sing however they were really happy when they wrote it. Jon states the line “I used to love our mind games made me feel alive” is his favorite line from the song.

The album was written by the four of them and also two other writers from Sweden. With several people making the album, it was easier to find out if a tune or a line works well stated by Narelle.

"I think the most important thing is that even if it's a pop song, there must be an element of truth to it. For us, it was like we're all 20s and had relationships which were muddy and complicated. Jealousy was a thing we wanted to paint a relationship that was real. Even a song like this, there's truth to it". - Benjamin. 


[Exclusive] Rising from the ashes : An Interview with James Arthur


James Arthur touched down to Malaysia for Sony’s Music - Stars In Sight showcase. He graced the stage with his guitar and played several covers and tracks from his album  -"Back from the Edge". He has sold over 200k singles - "Say You Won't Let Go" in Malaysia and have received the Platinum Sales Award by Sony Music Malaysia. After winning X factor back in 2012, he has resurfaced with an all new album and continues to top charts all over the world.

What was your through process while making the album?
A : Well I have lost my record deal and went through a very hard time after the X Factor. I was struggling with some mental health issues I kind of felt like I’ve lost everything and my purpose. The idea of the album was just to write some songs and hopefully to help inspire people and connect with people. It was basically me just speaking my mind. It was a cathartic and therapeutic experience.

Which song is your personal favorite?
A : Probably, “Train Wreck”. I feel like it’s vocally, the most honest and I’m proud of the lyrics as well. Another theme of the album is honesty, songs like “Train Wreck”,“Finally” and “Remember Who I Was” those kind of songs feels like heartfelt and honest.

The recently released music video, “Can I be Him”, could tell me a little about the song?
A : Well I think it’s just that unrequited love thing, you know everybody probably have been in love with someone and they don’t know about it. It’s kind of self explanatory, you know being sad about wanting that person.

“Say You Won’t Let Go” has become of the most successful song, how do you feel about that?
A : Good! Yeah whenever I write songs I hope people could relate with them. To see so many people to relate with that song is a dream come true.

You mentioned being through a lot after the X Factor, how do you keep up that spirit to keep making music?
A : Because I’m not really good at anything else probably. But it helps me channel my energy. I guess I have a lot of nervous energy and when I make music, it makes me feel better. I think it’s what I’m supposed to do, it’s my destiny to make music.

When you started off with your career, is there a British artist you want to emulate in the charts?
A : Yeah, of course. There’s many. Anyone who’s made hits really. I’m a fan of people like Plan B. There’s a lot of British artists right now that are doing really well.

Were doubt that you won’t be able to pull off this comeback?
A : Of course, but realistically, I thought there wasn’t much chance of coming back. X Factor winners usually you never hear about them again. I thought maybe I was one of those guys, just someone who disappears but I believed in my ability and my music. That has what got me through.

Can you tell us more about your upcoming book?
A : It’s an autobiography but it’s also kind of a self-help book. It talks about my struggles with mental health and I’m hoping that it will help as a self-help book for people as well. I was asked if I would like to write about my story because it’s been inspirational and it’s such an underdog story. In my country anyways, people were amazed that I managed to comeback. I guessed people wanted to know how I did it, and know more about me and my life. It’s been an enjoyable experience writing this book.

Do you keep in touch with the other X factor contestants?
A : Yeah I do such as Ella Henderson, Rylan.

You are known to be a soulful singer,
A : Yeah I mean the album, has a lot of diversity on there. There’s R&B, Rock and Hip Hop. In the next album, I intend to try lots of different things. I wanna make albums that are diverse and have different styles.

Could you describe a little on how you regain confidence?
A : I think it’s from seeing the fruits of my hard-work. I worked very hard to get back to where I am. I’ve put the hours in the studio and writing music. Getting my health back to where it should be. To see how to manifested and brought me so much success, it has gave me much confidence.

What’s in your definition a beautiful song and which song you’ve heard before in your opinion is a beautiful song?
A : Well I think a beautiful song first of all is relatable and something you can believe in. Something that gives you faith and hope. Honest lyrics as well. The one that springs to mind is probably Adele’s Make You Feel My Love. There’s a song by Miguel called Leaves.

Looking back, would you have done things differently?
A : Nope, no regrets. There’s somethings I’ve said that I would love to take back. Like I said, I was going through a nervous breakdown because I went from absolutely nothing to everything overnight. It was very difficult to wrap my head around it, I was doing a lot of self medicating. Some of the things I’ve said were irresponsible and childish and I’ve set a bad example to the kids who may have been looking up to me at that time. There’s certain language I’ve used that were irresponsible. I regret some of that but it made me who I am today. It shaped my future. I believe everything happens for a reason.

Do you still feel nervous before going on stage?
A : Not on stage anymore, it’s always good to have a little nervousness before going on stage. If you’re nervous before a show, you can turn that into power and good energy. I think anybody does, even guys who’s been doing it for decades will feel nervous for sure but not in the way that I used to.

What advice would you give to those who are diagnosed with mental health issues?
A : The best advice I would give is not to look too for into the future and not look back very much because if you look back, all you gonna feel is guilt and regret. If you look forward, you’re just gonna feel the anxiety. I think anybody who suffers from any mental health disorder needs to take it day by day and live in the now as much as possible.  

Do you consider your comeback the biggest milestone you've achieved in your life and what would you like to achieve in the future? 
A : I would consider coming back and having a number one single the biggest milestone in my career. Being recognized on other side of the world and having a hit in America. This was something six months ago, a ridiculous idea. Not many people know but I'm very interested in moving into other forms of creativity like acting. I would love to be featured in a film or be involved in the making such as soundtracks. I love movies

[Interview] Tabitha Nauser's debut single "Bulletproof" out now!


Tabitha Nauser stepped on the entertainment scene and made a name for herself when she participated in Singapore Idol back in 2009, captivating audience with her musical vocals and up-beat personality. Since then, she has represented Asia to sing the official theme song of the Youth Olympic Games alongside Sean Kingston, and performing at the White House State Dinner for Singapore in Washington, D.C.

The newly released debut single "Bulletproof" has been garnering attention as the single charted at #1 and #4 on Spotify and iTunes respectively and topped local radio 987FM's chart #3. Check out the sexy dance track below :-


Can you tell us about the song newly released single “Bulletproof”?
Bulletproof is about love, unconditional love, all forgiving love, love that’s going to conquour the world. That’s what the song is about but at the same time, the song talks about it’s not an easy, fairy-tale happy ending love story. It’s really interesting because I feel like we’ve mashed up quite a number of different genres into this song. It’s really hard for me to put it in a box, because the song got this really dark sound, moody but at when you get to the chorus, it becomes a dance track. It has got that pop sensibility to it but it also had influences of R&B, a little bit of hip-hop with a heavy bass. If somebody wants to listen to it and they’re not quite sure what the song is about, I would say it’s one of those tracks where you’ll get a little bit of everything.

What’s the best situation where you turn up “Bulletproof”?
If you feel like dancing! If you wanna dance and movie, this is the song! It’s kind of a sexy song.

Tabitha Nauser is known for her impeccable fashion, her Instagram has over 30k Intagram followers. When asked which outfit defines her overall style. She shared that it would be an all black ensemble she wore to the Singapore’s Fashion Week 2016. Tabitha explained her style got that street edge with the hairstyle and the over sized jacket. Her love of high fashion and the street flair coming together to produce a certain “je ne sais quoi” that translates to her fashion.

You are known for participating in Singapore Idol and that has made your name, however do you think there’s another step to your career?
For sure, Singapore Idol helped opened doors for me in terms of putting my name out there. From there, I’ve got so many gigs and I’ve basically built my career for the past 6/7 years but definetely that was just a tiny step. I want to be able to achieve much more. I just can’t wait to put the EP out, then I’ll be able say maybe say like “Hey, you know what maybe we could tour? Or put out a full length album”. There’s so many more things we could add on to that. I think it’s going to be very exciting, the next couple of months or the next year or so.

Will there be any planned showcases for the upcoming EP?
We have a couple but I don’t know if it’s public. In terms of public ones, I’m too sure yet but it mainly depends on where we’ll be heading to. Who knows? We might be coming back to KL again to do a show. We’ll see how it goes.

You were in a couple of theater shows, which are your favorites?
Let me clarify a little bit, I don’t think I’m an actress and I feel like I can’t really call myself a theatre kid either because I haven’t actually studied it. I have been lucky enough to be able to audition really cool roles and have been able to get the part. I’ve loved musicals, because you still get to sing and dance. I recently did “RENT” last year and that was one of my favorite musicals of all time so to be able to that was amazing for me. I don’t know if I’ll be doing more but I’m not so sure. It also depends on what role it is.

“?What is the one memorable line from “Bulletproof
The line would be “The one thing I’m addicted to is being on the edge with you”. That one’s my favorite. I din’t write the line but I feel with it because it talks about how when your head over heals for somebody, you literally do anything for them and it’s exciting at the same time.

Being a singer from Singapore, do you think you’ll be branching out to other countries?
I think for alot of artists here at some point it’s their vision. They would want to be able to branch outside, and so for me is the same as well. I would want to be able to do that so yeah that’s kind of what we’re trying to work towards as well.

You are known for your fashion, do you think the public would be seeing a collaboration with a brand soon?
I would love to be able to do something like that. It’ll be really cool if I were able to do sneakers. Hopefully something happens where I’m able to do so.

What’s your favorite scene from the “Bulletproof” music video?
I love that we got to do so many different kind of looks but I think my favorite scene was the one at the end where you can see my silhouette. Just because it looks very vulnerable and I like how it ties in with the rest of the music video as well. It showed a bit more of a gentler side to me. Just aesthetically it looks pretty nice. I’ve always wanted to do a silhouette shot, and I’ve done it.

How would you see yourself as a singer this year?

I’ve got a couple of kind of big shows line up for the second half of the year. Hopefully, I’ll be able to put out more music before that. We’ve got a second single that would be coming out very soon. So hopefully we’ll be able to get a couple more out before the main show. I think this year for me is going to be recording as much as I can so that we can get the EP ready before the end of this year. But for the mean time, we’ll be releasing singles every couple of months.  

AOMG Follow The Movement is coming to Singapore!

Fans of AOMG will be happy to hear that the Korean hip hop and R&B record label will be bringing the highly anticipated AOMG Follow The Movement Tour to Singapore this May.

Organized by concert promoters Amplified Production and StarSpeed Entertainment, this marks AOMG’s first concert in Singapore and will feature five artistes under its roster including Jay Park, Simon Dominic, Loco, DJ Pumkin and Gray.

[COVERAGE] Going Green with LOVELIFEST 2017


LOVELIFEST 2017 started off with a bang, welcoming many to the festival itself hosted by Yuna Room Records. LOVELIFEST incorporates art and celebrating life, also supporting local acts for everyone to enjoy. Featuring various Malaysian artists such as Bil Musa, Enterprise, Hani & Zue, SalamMusik, Pastel Lite. Celebrating the local art scene, the local vendors at the festival were by independent entrepreneurs truly encapsulating the essence of LOVELIFEST. Additionally, ticket holders were able to fill in their hunger with food trucks by SUKA SUCRE, BONAFIDE, HONCHO PIZZA PARLOUR, CURBSIDE CANTINA and SOFTSRVE. The picnic tables truly fulfills the outdoor festival experience. 

Aside from the music performances, the festival offers activities such as getting on a bicycle and cycling around the Setia City Park. There were an area where festival goers could lay out a mat and rest under a bohemian decorated tent with dream-catchers, while watching the concert across the park.


Sponsored by JOOX Music, the second half of the music acts are MASDO who embodied retro style from fashion to music, OH CHENTAKU, a definition of a rock band and one of Malaysia's top group, HUJAN who blew the crowd away with their powerful performance. The final act was YUNA herself who light up the stage with her vocals, and her presence on stage made the crowd go wild with excitement. She sang songs from her early days and ending the night with the chart topping track - Crush.
