Multiplicity consolidates a journey taken over a decade, reaching its high point in the form of an album. An ambitious undertaking for the crossover jazz artiste Michelle SgP, who rounded up a crew that includes Grammy nominees to veteran session musicians from all over the world - from Los Angeles to Melbourne to Beijing with Singapore as glue. Featuring a myriad of genres - funk-gospel, world music, R&B;, blues, jazz-rock, EDM mood fusion, to simple pop piano ballads, with music videos filmed in various continents as well. The project is a deeply personal and universal one, exploring themes of "surviving, conquering, finding love, reflections, goodbyes, regrets, hopes and dreams".
Featuring an all-star 7 piece band based in Singapore, guest performers, and a chorus, the Multiplicity project engages the power of music in celebrating our strengths, our humanity through embracing our uniqueness and diversity as individuals. It also showcases the multiple hats Michelle wears singing, playing, songwriting, producing, directing.
On the Artiste
Music is a tool for Michelle to reach out to her audience engaging all that she is under the muti-hyphenate singer, pianist, songwriter, producer, talent mentor. Her first release "Dreams" hit on several frontiers: the song was streamed on world's first underwater greenhouse Nemo's Garden's site - a ground breaking project off the coast of Noa; it was also listed as one of 5 best songs for Singapore's 50th celebrations by Bandwagon, and used as a Singapore contingent's submission for the global dance celebrations culminating in New York for Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" 50th speech anniversary. Michelle's next release "Serenity" saw features in the media and a wave of Italian reception. While in 2017, she was invited to headline Phuket Unesco International Jazz Festival in Thailand, performing rock reinterpretations to rave reception, subsequently landing a collaboration with Melbourne and Chinese musicians. As appointed music director for NIC, she organised music programming and performed for guests such as ex-Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, and Lou Hawthorne the man who cloned world's first pet dogs. As coach-mentor, her CV includes breakout SG music acts on touring schedule to musical theatre practitioners with stage reviews.
