In the month of August, we celebrate the innovation and craftsmanship of singer-songwriters in Singapore. With a fresh line-up of singer-songwriters, solo vocalists and independent groups of musicians, this month’s artists focus on original work, arrangements and the creative process behind making music. These performances offer a peek into the mind and hearts of these musicians as they present and reflect on their musical influences and their journeys as they developed their own unique sounds.

A solo project by Singapore guitarist and tunesmith Alexius Cai. Recording under the moniker Piblokto, Alexius’ has been writing material for his debut album for over two years. Colorless Fields was released in the first quarter of 2014, with songs traversing a myriad of emotions through sparse time signatures and adroit chord shifts. The melodies evoke both a sense of longing and loss, reminiscent of folk legend Nick Drake’s early works.
