It’s never too early for holiday music in Singapore, so we figured you’d want to hear about this brand new album compilation with a difference – Singaporean independent musicians performing Christmas songs for charity.
Christmas in Singapore features fourteen tracks, out of which eleven are originals. The album is filled with gems from the bouncy pop of “Christmas Without You” by Natalie Hiong to Jonathan Meur’s wistful “December By The Isle Of You” to Kevin Mathews’ ‘60s inspired pop sensibilities in “X’mas Dream”. “Give Me Love on Xmas Day” by The Lilac Saints & Friends was first released about five years ago as a single to help raise funds for Boys’ Town. Don Richmond’s “Xmas Without You” and Jack & Rai’s “This Christmas” were previously released digitally. Lunarin gives the Christmas classic “We Three Kings” a modern indie-rock treatment while The Sam Willows featuring Bang Wenfu jazz up “Silent Night”. Two of Singapore’s hottest singer-songwriters Charlie Lim and Inch Chua recorded a beautiful duet covering “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”. “
The digital album is available from bandcamp. Physical CDs can be purchased at Starbucks outlets, The Esplanade Shop and Thunder Rock School. All proceeds from the sale of this album will be donated to the Rare Disorders Society.
