About

'In The Moment', Daniel Chia's Debut Album

S$ 16,286

195

Daniel Chia has just completed his debut album, "In The Moment", with two-time Grammy Award winning producer Paul Brown, and an all-star band of internationally recognised musicians, in Los Angeles.

This contemporary jazz saxophonist is looking to bring his special brand of disco jazz to the world with a singular purpose of making music that just feels good.

Daniel's freshman offering, "In The Moment", is a collection of songs that reflect the vast body of his musical experiences. Having studied the music of Bach, Mozart, Chopin and Bartok, Daniel went on to revel in the music of jazz legends like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk and Stan Getz, while being constantly influenced by the R&B and soul music of the 70s and 80s.

No stranger to multiple camps within the Singapore music scene with roots in hip hop (SIXX), pop/R&B (Singapore Idol winner Sezairi; Gareth Fernandez; Natalie Hiong; Nicholas Chim), and both English and Mandarin adult contemporary music landscape (Hard Rock Cafe, Unplugged, Hood Bar), "In The Moment" is Daniel's first solo project as an original artist. 

Your support will go a long way to the completion, marketing and production of "In The Moment".

 

Risks and challenges

In The Moment has been mixed and is on track to being mastered and produced in a test batch. Barring unforeseen manufacturing incidents with the thumbdrives or the CD printers, all rewards should reach you ahead of schedule. In the unlikely event that such incidents do occur, all backers will still receive their download code to In The Moment.
