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.
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 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.

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。
