Gayle Nerva and Gareth Fernandez, featuring The Momma Shop
Singer, songwriter and actor, Gayle Nerva spent her formative years absorbing pop culture in her home country, Singapore. Being born into a musically inclined family, she grew up listening to artists like Queen, The Beatles, and Michael Jackson. She was also inspired by ’90s female singer-songwriters and urban R&B artists and went on to teach herself the guitar and started writing songs at the age of 13.

Gareth Fernandez is a pop R&B artist based in Singapore. His latest single, Bit of Your Love; has almost a million streams on Spotify, and he is set to release his sophomore EP later in 2017. Fernandez names Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake as his greatest influences, where contemporary tunes are given a dash of old school sensibility. With his soulful vocals, energetic live performances, and instrumentation by his dapper quartet, The Momma Shop, he can get an audience dancing like no amount of tequila could.

The Momma Shop comprises Titus Ng (bass), Anson Koh (drums), Sikai Goh (keys) and James Lye (guitar), whose signature soul, funk and R&B has been reverberating through the Singapore music scene since 2014. 

Nick Zavior and His All Stars
Nick Zavior is Singapore’s newest vocal phenomenon. Heavily influenced by R&B which then led to his interest and love of funk, soul and gospel music. Zavior was not only handpicked by legendary producer David Foster to feature in his concert tour David Foster and Friends, he was also described as “one to watch for the future” by Brian McKnight. Zavior’s velvety smooth voice has impressed audiences and fans all around the region. Not one to be missed, come on down and countdown to another fantastic year with Nick Zavior and His All Stars.
