Connecting Seniors To Youths:
I was recently approached by Malvin Chua to participate in a movement called #Timeout4Pioneers. He told me that it started because there is a belief that young people aren't spending enough time with their elders as they would rather spend it on technology and social media. I agreed with his suggestion and met him and Paddy Ong, who is from a popular band called, *Take Two. We chatted over evening tea.
Below is Mr Chua's letter to Humans of Singapore which was published on its Facebook page:
|With Paddy Ong of Band Take Two.|
Apologies for the long write-up, and Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Humans of Singapore #Timeout4Pioneers."
BAND: TAKE TWO
|TAKE TWO: L-R are Jeryl, Paddy, Johnathan, David and Peng Sing|
Influenced by Brit Rock, Jazz, and Indie Pop (among others), Take Two brings their own blend of guitar-driven musical incarnations, full of crafty chord work and foot-stomping grooves.
Currently working on their debut EP, the band are also participants with this year's Noise Music Mentorship program, with Saiful Idris (The Great Spy Experiment) as their mentor. They will be performing at Music Matters Live 2014 and the EcoPop 2014 in Spain later this year.
