Andrew Lim has been an integral part of the jazz scene in Singapore and abroad since 2001.
Over the years, he has performed on local, regional and international platforms. Playing at these festivals, and in clubs all around the world has enabled him to perform with musicians across all generations.
Lim is currently based in Singapore to serve as a National Arts Council Scholar, and continues to contribute to the local cultural fabric as an educator and musician. Besides lecturing at LASALLE College of the Arts, he is also a mentor in the Esplanade’s Mosaic Jazz Fellows program and has touched the lives of many of the younger musicians in the scene. He was recently invited to be a Mosaic Associate Artist with Esplanade and has led his trio to play at the 2019 edition of Tokyo Jazz Festival. His reverence to melodies and soulful style have endeared him to audiences throughout the world as well as the musicians he’s worked with.
Tan Weixiang (“Wei”) is one of the young lions in Singapore’s jazz scene. A latecomer to jazz, Wei started piano studies at 15, and jazz at 21, when he was in law school. A protégé of Thelonious Monk alumnus Victor Gaskin, Wei’s musical career skyrocketed after his first gig at a hotel lounge in Singapore two decades ago.
Wei’s piano-performance credits span major cities around the world, with the biggest names in jazz, including Grammy Award nominees and winners Brian Lynch, Stanley Jordan and Dave Samuels, to name a few. His playing has been lauded by piano virtuoso Jean-Michel Pilc as “ruthlessly inventive.” Wei's music is informed by a lifelong commitment to jazz knowledge and history, while being inspired by all things interesting and meaningful in life.
