Singer-songwriter Nick Tan is no stranger to the local music scene, having performed at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre and Mediacorp Channel 5’s Live N Loaded, among other platforms.

Growing up at the tail end of the 1980s, Nick was exposed to an eclectic mix of teenybopper ’90s radio hits, Disney soundtracks, and evergreen songs from the baby boomer generation. As he matured into a young adult, he found himself gravitating towards the narrative melodies of the confessional singer-songwriter genre. Artists he listened to repeatedly in his youth included KT Tunstall, John Mayer and Sara Bareilles.

An alumnus of the Noise Singapore Apprenticeship 2008/2009 cohort, he's been a featured artist on Power 98's Acoustic Lounge Sessions, as well as the Originals Only Open Mic at the Singapore Art Museum. He was also awarded Best Vocalist at HomeSongs, a songwriting competition organised by Ocean Butterflies.
