Alternative soul and funk band, The Good Life Project, will be rocking out at Timbre Substation on Wednesday, 30th of August! With instructors Stasha Wong (Bass), Naz (Keys), and Pamela Song (Vocals) performing, this is a gig you don't want to miss!
Before they take the stage, we talk to Naz about how GLP writes their original compositions.
How did GLP get together?
N: Louis (DJ), Kim (Violinst), and Boey (Drums) started the band; while the name of the band was inspired by a Kayne West song. Stasha (Bass) and Sano (Guitars) joined next, followed by myself and Pam (Vocals). For myself, I loved the direction of the band; Hip-hop, Soul, R&B, Funk, and I didn't hesitate much.
How do you guys write your songs?
N: Our songs are really groove-based, and we have to play to everyones' strengths. For example, Pam writes the melodies while Kim accompanies her with other layers, Boey and Stasha work on the grooves, while Louis, Sano and I lay down the chords. We work as a cohesive unit to make sure that we bring out the best in each other.
Any favourite songs?
N: All our songs are precious to us! Every song is different and gives us a different dynamic on stage. I would say our setlist would reveal very different musical sides of all the musicians.
What do you guys enjoy doing besides music?
N: Pam eats and Stasha likes dogs. Boey flips his hair.
Meanwhile, if you ever need convincing, this is a video of them performing in 2013. Enjoy!
