The Peak (Singapore) - - The Brief -

For those scep­ti­cal of public sup­port for the art scene here, good news from the mu­sic sec­tor. A re­cent na­tional mu­sic con­sump­tion sur­vey com­mis­sioned by the Na­tional Arts Coun­cil has found that two out of three Sin­ga­pore­ans are proud of home-grown mu­sic and mu­si­cians, with 71 per cent in­di­cat­ing that they lis­ten to Sin­ga­porean mu­sic. To fur­ther show­case lo­cal tal­ent, the coun­cil, to­gether with mu­sic me­dia com­pany Band­wagon, will launch an on­line plat­form Hear65 ded­i­cated to home-grown mu­sic and artists. We at are all ears.
