But as any parent will tell you - we cannot help it! It is in every fibre of our being to want to intervene, get involved, ask questions, worry and fret. It is our instinct as parents, and a cross we have to bear to ensure the safety and well being of our children.
So to say that “I don’t want to” is perhaps the hardest thing and also the biggest lie. I am sure all listeners will see through the deceit, but I don’t want to impose or speculate!
I met Wayne Chow (image above) backstage, when we had to practise for a gig in 2019 at the RELC International Hotel @ Orchard Road Singapore. He was a quiet gentleman and as we went through our songs, our little chats became an interesting conversation when he told me he composes too. More so he has recorded a few of them on YouTube.
Below is a promising piece that he recorded. I hope you hit the high notes soon, Wayne.
"It is probably not cool to speak of ourselves as "cats", but it was a term used to describe people who are "cool" and "detached". Musicians (and musician wannabes) often think of themselves as cool and detached; without a care in the world except their music. This song talks about that dream and how, if we are truly in for the music; that we should never give up. Live the dream, live the music!" - Wayne Chow.
