Songwriting in Singapore

'What is the Singapore Sound?' was the question raised by majority of the panelist at the inaugural songwriting seminar organised by the Musicians Guild of Singapore. The forum witnessed a gathering of some of Singapore's finest songwriters and producers, including Ruth.

As an invited guest speaker, Ruth shared that an essential part of good songwriting comes from the collaboration with other writers and musicians from different cultures, backgrounds and generations. This is not always easy but with proper communication, grace and mutual respect, the magic of wonderful songwriting can be expected to take place. 

Tackling the question of what the Singapore sound really is, Ruth concludes that it is simply music made by Singaporeans, performed by Singaporean musicians, written by Singaporean writers and produced right here in Singapore.
