Juliet Pang 冯欣慧 (www.julietpang.net)

Juliet Pang started her professional music career in 1998, the year she was one of three artists signed to Ocean Butterflies International (海蝶國際集團), alongside JJ Lin (林俊傑) and A-Do (杜成义). Her unique voice first became renowned in Singapore when she sang the theme to the 1999 Singaporean cult movie 'Eating Air' (吃風). As well as being a vocalist, Juliet is known as one of Singapore’s prominent songwriters: her lyrics for the theme to Singaporean TV series ‘Zero to Hero’ (阴差阳错) was the highest royalty earning soundtrack of 2007. Later in 2011, her debut originals album ‘The Perfect Journey’ (完美之旅) had her nominated for the ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Local Artist’ award categories by the popular Mando-pop blog Freshmusic (音樂雜誌).

Apart from her own album recordings, she was also featured on the S2S Records jazz compilation albums Absolute Voices (2009) and Oriental Jazz (2013), and has a graduate certificate from the Australian Institute of Music, where she studied jazz piano under David McRae, an ex-sideman of Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughan and Chet Baker to name a few. Juliet’s latest accomplishment in jazz was the release of her 2012 EP ‘White Noise Live’, a live recording with her jazz quartet White Noise.

Didi Mudigdo

A consummate jazz pianist and arranger, Didi Mudigdo has performed in festivals and jazz clubs around Australia, Japan, China and South-East Asia. In 2005 he was a Top 10 finalist in the 2005 Australian National Songwriting Contest (jazz category) and was the most-downloaded jazz artist on mp3.com.au. Born in Australia to Indonesian parents, he had a multinational upbringing living in Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Sri Lanka, then graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 1997. Since then, he has toured Japan, China and Southeast Asia performing alongside musicians from USA, Europe and Brazil. He has also recorded with several Sydney recording artists, and released recordings of his own, the most recent being Didi Three Live (2008) which was recorded live at the Sapporo Jazz Festival in Japan.

Wendy Phua (www.wendyphua.com)

With a fresh approach to the bass and a fearlessness to match, Singapore’s leading female Wendy Phua has performed with international artistes like James LoMenzo (Megadeth), Mel Gayner (Simple Minds), Shaggy, Emma Shapplin and Riki Hendrix.

In 2008, she released Singapore’s first and only bass solo EP “Between Here And Then” which featured her original compositions in a range of styles from classical to new age. The EP went on to receive favourable reviews in Bass Frontiers Magazine and Czech publication Muzikus, with sales reaching as far as America and Japan. Wendy was later signed on in the same year by Yamaha Singapore as its first female bass endorser, and an endorsement with KLOTZ Audio Interface Systems. She has appeared on interviews for NewsRadio 93.8 FM, Lush 99.5FM, Redifussion, and Channel NewsAsia Primetime Morning.

Wendy is noted for her use of two-handed finger-tapping on the bass, chordal playing, bowing on the electric bass and extensive usage of music technology in performances from live-looping to multi-tracking on the iPhone.
