ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rani Singam presents a new offering with a brilliant re-imagination of My Muse from the album Contentment. Lauded as a versatile and captivating performer who sings both originals and standards as if they were written for her, this recording features the finest musicians based in Singapore - Chok Kerong (piano), Brandon Wong (bass) Aaron James Lee (drums), Chan Yoong Han (violin), Christina Zhou (violin), Edward Tan (viola) & Ng Pei-Sian (cello). The music soars ensconced in the jazz and classical genres with a strong soulful intonation by Rani Singam. Introspective yet bold.

More on Rani Singam
Rani is one of the most sought-after and accomplished contemporary vocalists today. A former lawyer with the Singapore Legal Service, Rani became a professional singer in 2002. She has been named in “The Jazz Singers, The Ultimate Guide”, a Hal Leonard publication which serves as an encyclopedic guide on the important singers in jazz.

Her debut album “With A Song In My Heart” was produced by jazz maestro Jeremy Monteiro in 2004 and marked a significant milestone in her career.

Rani produced her second album “Contentment” in 2011. The album has been lauded by critics as contemporary and innovative. The album is the largest representation of Rani’s work as a producer and lyricist. It is also a showcase of her partnership with Kerong Chok, one of the rising stars in jazz today. Leading jazz publication All About Jazz describes it as a “vibrant authentic recording of vocal jazz – a little bit of gold.”

Rani sings in a style which is truly reminiscent of the great jazz singers she admires. Apart from her strong vocals and fine interpretative skills, Rani has a truly endearing way of connecting with the audience. Her “playful yet caressing vocals likened by many to legendary jazz vocalists including Billie Holliday, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughn” continue to woo the hearts of critics and fans alike. “… “She doesn’t just sing the songs, she sometimes becomes the song” – TODAY.

Rani has collaborated with many greats from all over the world namely James Moody, Ernie Watts, Jeremy Monteiro, Michael Veerapen, Iskandar Ismail, Shawn Kelly, Alberto Marsico, Eugene Pao, Urs Ramseyer, Tony Lakatos and T’ang Quartet. Her performances, which include solo recitals, have been held before Presidents and dignitaries both in Singapore and in countries such as the United States, China, Indonesia, India, Thailand and Malaysia. Amongst her notable performances include her groundbreaking rendition of the National Anthem Majulah Singapura at the National Day Parade 2013.

Rani is involved in jazz education through “Jazz 123 - Rani Sings for Kids”, a unique jazz appreciation for young people since 2007. The programme has been under the National Arts Council -Arts Education Programme since 2013.

Rani sings in English but has also performed in Malay, Tamil, Mandarin, Portuguese, Swahili and Maori. Her versatility is also evident in the several musical styles she has embraced which include broadway, pop, folk, rock, ethnic and fusion.
