SOFA ACOUSTIC SESSION / 01 : Kathryn Wong

我们从来都需要这么一把纯粹的声音
从1990年就开始创作的本地独立音乐人黄碧燕,曾为流行歌手如刘德华、梁泳棋、叶倩文写过歌。1995年那年,为刘德华写的一首《你说他是你想嫁的人》意外地暴红,她却毅然从主流音乐圈消失,直至2007年才推出首张独立制作的个人创作专辑《CHISELLED》。这张专辑不只记录了黄碧燕走出忧郁症的心情故事,也让碧燕在本地独立音乐界里成为备受注目的创作歌手。

从那无底的黑谷走出后,经历过了人生的起起伏伏,碧燕继续用着她那把纯粹的声音与一把吉他,一直把故事说下去。

碧燕的音乐就是有种魔力,总是让听的人放不下,也走不开。

这个9月,请你们来和我们一起听碧燕唱歌、说故事,也一起被这么纯粹的音乐,包围着。

All we need is music
Kathryn Wong, lyricist, composer & producer best known for her chart topping hit ,《你说他是你想嫁的人》(popularised by Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau),released her debut album 《Chiselled》in 2007 after a 12-year hiatus from the music industry. The album, a heartfelt record of her personal battle against depression, also marked the re-emergence of one of Singapore’s most talented singer-songwriters.

The raw honesty and power of Kathryn’s music can only be experienced live, so this September, come and join us for an amazing night as Kathryn shares her stories and songs with us!

关于随意诗人《沙发音乐会》系列
由随意诗人策划的一系列小型不插电音乐会,不定期邀请本地或外国的独立音乐人或主流歌手,希望把焦点重新放在音乐上,让一切回归到最简单,也让乐迷与音乐人有一次最近距离、最坦诚的接触。

this is something that we have been secretly working on.

i have known Kathryn for awhile now.

the first time i saw her perform, i was floored. she was singing a song that she had written to commemorate the death of a relationship. there was a huge crowd where she performed, but i felt alone. her music had isolated me.

later on, we became friends. over dinner, over drinks, over coffee, she would tell me about her life. i would piece together the history of her life and i would slowly come to understand her - not only as a person, but as a musician.

she said music saved her life.

i like to think that it's true.

Kathryn's music has a sort of pureness to it, and i always felt that this has something to do with who she is. she is such a pure sort of person. it's as if this complicated world never managed to touch her.

she only writes when she feels like it. her music is inspired by her life. maybe that's why her songs feel so real. and maybe that's why i felt isolated that day in the crowd, when i first heard her sing "Flavour of the Month", because she had written my song. i was hearing my story.

the sofa acoustic session will be a series of mini live shows held in the store featuring local musicians and singers - and other permutations (this we will keep as a mini-secret for now). we hope you get what we are trying to do - we are trying to let music go back to the basics, because sometimes i think all we need is to be together, to experience the magic of a song together. it's as simple, as uncomplicated as that.

if you're interested in joining us, drop us an email, or call us, or drop by the store. i have a feeling that it'll be a great night.

I wish I could go. Really seems like a great show. But other than that R, I just want to say that poster is amazing! The colors of the text and the size of the chinese characters are perfect. I'm gonna save it for inspiration.
