JUNE 30/JULY 1: Janine Annice – A Birthday Special

Janine Annice is an escapist; art is her refuge, a means to process the world. London is not an easy city, but it’s well known as a place from which to derive a rich cultural experience. Musicians often emerge armed with an unmatched sincerity and depth; it is the birthplace of many a musical legend. Being a part of a scene where fresh sounds waft from basements of young revolutionaries is a rite of passage. The underground millennial zeitgeist? Hip-hop meets jazz. 

 

 

Home for Janine is a place where nobody is afraid to be unique. Difference is celebrated and conformity – rejected. Her exposure to London’s bubbling artistic melting pot – where music, fashion and art intersect – cultivated the fearlessness required to try new things on the stage. Attending private jam sessions in East London warehouses with London’s finest next-gen musicians until the early morning hours and constantly living and breathing in the new has led to a certain open-mindedness that is rare, and a symbiosis between vocalist and band that is unusual, and at times, magical. Meeting the purist soul/ R&B background she grew up listening to in the bedroom and raising it with touches of those jazzy/ hip-hop influences that have become integral to her development in the city’s scene, she lends artistic touches to her improvisation that stem completely from personal experience, whether she is singing covers or original material.

 

 

The next steps in her career have brought Janine overseas to Southeast Asia. After being offered a slot at the World Youth Jazz Festival in Kuala Lumpur and Publika Jazz Festival, Janine remained in Malaysia to perform most notably at No Black Tie and Le Noir, where she met the Juny Brothers (USA). They went on to make the connection with Maveriq Records, where she was offered the opportunity to record her first project. After spending time hosting two fortnightly jam sessions at The Ankh and The Pembroke Arms while writing and producing her project in London, she returned once more to Malaysia, armed with fresh material and ready to begin. 

During that time, with Malaysia as her base, she performed again at the World Youth Jazz festival, BajaFash Jazz festival in Batam Indonesia, and the Victoria Bar (Singapore). Also taking short residencies at the Imaginarium and Savini, and returning once a month at Le Noir and No Black Tie, she has also played at venues such as The Imaginarium, Rils and The Bee. 

NO BLACK TIE: 17, Jalan Mesui, off Jalan Nagasari, KL . Admission: RM50. Concert menu available. Call 03-2142 3737 after 5pm or visit www.noblacktie.com.my for bookings.

JULY 3: Reza Salleh, Gabriel Lynch and Beverley Matujal Live at NBT

One of the top names in Malaysia’s acoustic scene, Reza Salleh is a central figure in Malaysia’s thriving singer-songwriter circuit. His music is “a little bit of everything”, drawing from pop, grunge, R&B, folk and a lot of other genres he grew up listening to.

 

 

Reza has played in Australia, Laos, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia and Japan. He was the first Malaysian to be invited to play a major stage at Japan’s 19th Annual Sunset Live Festival in Fukuoka, Japan in 2011 and was invited to play the Asia Music Found showcase and the Nakasu Jazz Festival last year in the same city. In 2016 he played the Daegu Folk Festival in Daegu, Korea.

Australian singer songwriter Gabriel Lynch has spent much of his adult life travelling and wowing audiences across Asia, Europe and his own home turf with his breathtaking live performances. With his powerful command of the stage, he can incite a pin-drop silence as quickly and effortlessly as he can instigate a soaring, cathartic singalong.

 

 

Lynch now resides in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In between tours and expanding upon his already extensive catalog of studio releases, he composes music professionally for radio, film and television on behalf of Maveriq Studios.

Beverly  is a folk-pop singer/songwriter born and raised in Sabah. She is an avid observer of life, love and just about anything that matters to the human soul. Because of this, she weaves her observations into songs that capture audiences alike.Matujal

 

 

Her debut EP, a five-track record called ‘Echoes’, was launched in August 2017 and can now be found on Spotify, Apple Music and other online platforms. Earlier this year, a song from the EP (‘Compass’) was selected as a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.
