About Samuel Cheah
Samuel Cheah is a jazz saxophonist currently finishing his undergraduate studies in Montreal. Originally coming from a classical wind band background, Samuel served 4 years in the Singapore Armed Forces Central Band, during which he obtained his licentiate diploma from Trinity College London. He was also part of various other local wind ensembles such as Windstars and Orchestra Collective. He has performed at Mosaic Music Festival and Singapore Night Festival with groups like WhatIsHip, Thomson Jazz Club, Tim De Cotta, and his own quartet, playing everything from neo-soul to funk to straight-ahead jazz. Samuel was recently part of a tribute project that played the Canadian premiere of the music of New York composer Baird Hersey in two sold-out shows. He hopes to one day change his title from ‘jazz saxophonist’ to ‘jazz multi-wind-instrumentalist’.
Euntaek Kim (also known as E.T.) is a multi-instrumentalist based in Singapore. Having devoted much time and effort into becoming a musical chameleon, one that can comfortably blend into any musical situation presented, he has taken part in a wide variety of musical ensembles as a sideman, performing in various world-renowned music festivals such as Singapore Jazz Festival, Mosaic Music Festival and Jarasum Jazz Festival alongside international artists such as Robert Glasper (USA), Snarky Puppy (USA), and Hiatus Kaiyote (AU). As part of critically acclaimed Singapore artist Charlie Lim's band, the Mothership, he actively handles guitar and keyboard duties. Euntaek is also a mainstay in the group Tribal Tide, a world fusion band led by one of the region's top percussionists Mohamed Noor.
