The Story Behind The Song

They say that every novel is some form of autobiography. You can’t be a great writer if your life has always been a bed of roses. If you don’t hurt, you can’t write. I guess it’s the same with musicians or for that matter, any artist.

Joie Tan is a young Singaporean musician and she has several original compositions to her name. I first took notice of her when she complained about late payment for her gigs on Facebook.

This song does sound a bit “heavy”, “personal” and lacks popular appeal. Still, it’s a good effort and should be encouraged. I hope she will find her feet in this industry soon.
