JANUARY 12:  Warehouse Sessions #17 at Ril’s

Warehouse Sessions is back featuring:

Ariff Akhir: a singer, musician, songwriter, music producer and sound engineer. As a solo act and also frontman for his band, The Sofa Sessions, Ariff has been performing live for almost 20 years. Behind the scenes, Ariff has composed, arranged, recorded, engineered and produced audio and music for local artists, advertisements, film, television, theatre and live shows. Follow him: https://www.instagram.com/ariffakhir/

Straight from the burrows, H.F. Badger (alter-ego of singer-songwriter, Bob Ooi) is a bi-pedal creature that has zero physical resemblance to a Honey Badger. However, they both share two common traits - they both like to live alone (to an extent) and they’re notorious for their bad temperament. This particular (and rather peculiar) badger kept on digging through life’s struggles before he uttered these words - “Enough is enough”.  He crawled out of his deep, dark hole and went back to his first love, music. Drawing many musical influences in his life (including Dallas Green from City & Colour and Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty), HFB channeled his thoughts of his personal battles with love, life and religion through hill-billy, folk music that people seem to poorly categorise it as ‘hipster music’. Let HFB enthral you with his folk guitar playing, his smooth yet robust singing voice and the occasional yodelling. Follow him: https://www.instagram.com/hfbadger/

A vibrant, energetic performer, Heerraa is exploring the indie scene with her original songs about life, awareness, love and just being happy, to spread joy and brighten up people's day! So far having released 2 singles, Victorious and Feeling High, Heerraa is currently in the midst of recording her next single as well as collaborating with other local artist. Heerraa has also been featured in the Malay Mail for her decision to stick to her passion and pursue music, and has also won Short + Sweet Song Malaysia 2017's Festival Director's Award, awarded by Dato' Faridah Merican herself. Catch this quirky rockstar as she performs as mix of covers and original songs - leaving them ringing in your head.  Follow her: https://www.instagram.com/heerraaofficial/
