Daisy Devan: Artiste Manager @ EMI Passed On

Mrs Daisy Devan, artiste and repertoire manager with EMI Music passed away at 81 years young. She was "instrumental in getting local English, Malay and Chinese music produced (1.04.2009, Straits Times Press, Singapore)".

Mrs Devan had encouraged many of Singapore's musicians and singers like The Quests, Sakura Teng, Rita Chao, Saloma and P. Ramlee and a host of other artistes to record at the studio in MacDonald House, Orchard Road (Singapore's first recording studio).

Also the first Asian to be in charge of a record label in Singapore, Mrs Devan was responsible for pressing more than 3,000 music recordings. She retired in the early 80s.
