What is Hear65?

Hear65 is a national movement to promote Singaporean music and musicians. Working with Bandwagon, the National Arts Council started the initiative to advocate for more recognition for Singaporean music by working with like-minded partners, ranging from corporations and public institutions to homegrown businesses and brands. Our mission is for Singaporeans and the world to discover and embrace Singaporean music.

Hear65.com is an online platform which is a one-stop destination to discover and enjoy great music by Singaporean artists. There will be easy access to a variety of features, including latest releases, videos, and recommended concerts.

Bandwagon is a music media company that focuses on delivering news, entertainment and events happening in Asia. The National Arts Council champions the arts in Singapore, and was established to nurture the arts and make it an integral part of life in Singapore.

I don’t see my album in the Discover section. How can I add my album to Hear65’s database?

For now, due to royalties and clearances, we are only taking albums that are listed on streaming services. If you have a streaming link to your album, do submit it via the Submit page.

If your album is not on a streaming service, and you’d like to have it listed on the site as soon as we can support that, please submit your request to hello@hear65.com with the title "Submit: Album Name".

Why are album listings only via Spotify, what about other sources like Bandcamp?

We chose Spotify as our default player for 2 reasons. Firstly, as our goal is to encourage a wider listenership of Singaporean music, we needed to pick a service that can be most of use to the widest number of people. When surveyed, 75% of our visitors use Spotify. Secondly, and most critically we need a developer Web API to tap on at a codebase level. This allows us to build our filter feature which is essential for our discover section and allows for scalability as the number of entries grow. Bandcamp's API is currently only setup for label and merchandise fulfilment partners usage. If you have any ideas on how we could support music which is not on Spotify for certain reasons, please let us know at hello@hear65.com.
