Applications for The Great Singapore Replay are now open.
Returning for its second season, The Great Singapore Replay has launched an open call for aspiring musicians, which is slated to close 20 October, 11:59pm. The programme will give participants the chance to work with five of Singapore's finest artists, Charlie Lim, Joanna Dong, Kelly Pan, Sezairi and Shabir, in creating 10 new original songs inspired by mashups of distinct tunes from five iconic eras of Singapore’s history and five modern music genres.
Shortlisted applicants will be able to experience how it's like to produce music professionally – covering all aspects from songwriting, song arrangement to music recording. The Great Singapore Replay will also help create and market the artist's brand, and launch their songs on popular digital music streaming platforms.
Previously, the inaugural season of The Great Singapore Replay in 2017 saw creations by Debbi Koh, Jasmine Sokko, JAWN, Joie Tan, Shak’thiya, Spacedays, The Betts, Theodora, Umar Sirhan and .gif.
