Synopsis:

It's a double-bill of Singapore Mandarin originals with singer-songwriter Meiting and four-piece NEKO Highway! Join them on a whimsical journey as they tell love stories and the weird and quirky side of their everyday lives. Look forward to an evening of unforgettable tunes in the first-ever in::music concert at the Esplanade Annexe Studio.

Meiting
Singapore singer-songwriter Ng Meiting does not settle for the ordinary love song. Largely influenced by the music of Cheer Chen and Crowd Lu, her songs speak about the weird and quirky side of life in a small city, and how to deal with dreaming about the impossible. Meiting's first digital single Blue Moon was released in September 2016, landing a top 20 place on the iTunes Singapore Mandopop charts. Her second digital single Will It...?, released just over a month later, topped the YES 93.3FM original music charts on their new originals segment for four consecutive weeks.

NEKO Highway
NEKO Highway is a Mandarin originals band that plays a blend of different musical styles, creating a sound that is uniquely theirs. The four members— Kaye (vocals), Sandy (keyboards), Claire (bass) and Glenn (drums)—decided to form a band to write and play original music when they discovered their musical chemistry when playing together at a gig. Inspired by their mutual love for cats and where they were at the point in time, they decided to call themselves NEKO Highway.

《跳舞的猫》遇上爱发白日梦的《淡水鱼》:他们到底会擦出什么样的火花呢?让新加坡创作歌手黄美婷和原创乐团猫速公路联手带你体验一段异想天开的音乐旅程。他们将带着独具风格的有趣曲风与原创作品到滨海艺术中心,让大家体验他们生活中所经历的酸甜苦辣。

黄美婷
本地创作歌手黄美婷偏爱陈绮贞、卢广仲等音乐人的写作方式,也将此融入自己的音乐里。小小的城市里所发生的故事,遥不可及的梦想要如何实现,她都一一写在创作里。 2016年九月,美婷发行了首张抒情摇滚单曲《蓝月》,并列入 iTunes "新加坡华语流行音乐榜"的20 强。发行一个月后的第二张华语 R&B 单曲《会不会》也在本地音乐电台 YES 93.3FM 的 "大小2势力:周三创新歌"获得两位评审的大力推荐。

猫速公路
本地创作乐团猫速公路是由卡爷(主唱),丘淑惠(键盘手),周佩琳(贝斯手)和李伟杰(鼓手)所组成。四个人在一次的机缘巧合下,发现彼此的默契不错,于是决定组团一起玩音乐。乐团的音乐从'轻松抒情'到'玩味funk',集合了各种音乐元素,并不局限于任何一种特定的风格。名为"猫速",仅是因为大家都对neko(日语"猫"的意思)情有独钟,就随兴地以"猫速公路"出道。
