Secret location, unheard material: bittymacbeth and BECKA are coming together to debut their own new tunes with each other's help on bass and keyboards respectively! It's a truly collaborative concert that's also DIY - never done before by two female Singaporean singer-songwriters. And in the spirit of revolution, the show will be held in a secret location, never used before for public performances.
Be part of this historic show the day before a public holiday (National Day):
8 August, 7.30pm (doors open 7pm)
Venue: The location's a secret for now, but don't worry: the venue address will be e-mailed to you a few days before the show so you can make travel arrangements! Also, you may check this event page when we update it 24h before the show with the map info. We'll have signs pointing to the venue on that day so you don't get lost.
Access: It's right next to a Circle line MRT station (less than 5min walk away), with plenty of buses that service the surrounding bus stops.
There are nearby public carparks and shopping malls with car parks, all within 5min walk of the venue. (Make sure you have parking coupons!)
Seating: The performance space is indoors, and with air-conditioning. It will be an intimate concert with free seating and audience members can expect to sit on a carpeted floor. If you require a chair, please let us know.
More about bittymacbeth:
bittymacbeth has gone from indie one-woman-band live-looper to innovative producer and band leader - her debut album Beauty For Ashes hit #1 on the iTunes and Apple Music Top R&B/Soul Singapore charts three days after its release; she led a sextet of Singapore's top musicians at her sold out album launch concert at the 250-seater Esplanade Recital Studio.
Slated as a "classic case of petite frame, prodigal talent" by JUICE magazine, her music has already ridden the airwaves from radio stations in Singapore and Australia and been licensed for in-store radio play in the United Kingdom.
Currently 23 years old and on scholarship to Berklee College of Music, bittymacbeth, whose real name is Beth Yap, seeks to be the prophetic artist of her generation - to provide a critique of the status quo and an inspiration to change it, singing what needs to be said through jazz harmony with radio-friendly melodies, complemented by funky basslines and a whole lot of soul.
Aptly summarised by prolific artist Inch Chua, “The first thing that strikes me about Beth is how musical and how gutsy she is … Beth is scary good.”
More about BECKA:
BECKA graduated from the LASALLE School of Contemporary Music in 2015, and was talent-spotted by Red Roof Records shortly after, at the age of 24. In July 2016, BECKA released her self-titled debut EP. To mark the launch of her album, Becka held a showcase at Sentosa's Merlion Plaza, where the music video for her title track — ‘20 Seconds’ — was projected onto the Merlion. BECKA is the first artist to have achieved this. To date, her EP has been streamed more than 300,000 times across popular music streaming sites, including Spotify and iTunes.
The other singles in her EP, ‘Be Alright’, ‘Say Goodbye’, and ‘Fallin’ did just as well when they were launched at Artistry Cafe, Switch, and the National Gallery respectively — to packed audiences.
The future looks bright for this home-grown talent, who holds big dreams in her petite frame: to
inspire with her music, and become an artist Singaporeans can truly be proud of. BECKA released her follow up single “Gold” in May this year and plans to launch a Mandarin album early next year, with music video releases and public performances.
“People have photographs. I have songs to mark significant milestones on my journey.”
