If you’re an aspiring performer/musician/songwriter/whatever come down for Feedback this Saturday at Cloth & Clef.

FEEDBACK is an open mic show that happens once a month (every 2nd Saturday) at Cloth & Clef in Changkat Bukit Bintang. If you’re interested to sign up come slightly earlier to sign up for a slot.

You get to play 1-2 songs depending on how many sign ups there are. Set-up wise a full band can be supported (we have 2 guitar amps, a bass amp a drum kit and vocal mics). Please bring your own cables. Bands as well as solo acts are welcome.

This month’s installment features FERNS, WANI ARDY and REZA SALLEH.

FFEDBACK Open Mic is a MOONSHINE event.

I’ll be playing for the open mic so make your way down there tonight to catch me and stay for the other great acts playing as well πŸ™‚

Inspiration kicks ass.

So I was inspired to write a new song. Haha. Finished the first and second verse and chorus today, and I’m so excited to share it just cos its a happy song and I rarely do those. It’s gonna be 2 in a row. πŸ˜€

Here’s the rough demo I did in like 3 minutes. I’ll do a proper one along with the untitled party song at a later date. In the mean time, enjoy this rough version. I’ll probably be playing this live in future gigs if I get good response here.

Walking on Clouds
you’ve got me feeling like i’m walking on clouds
and i ain’t coming down without you by my side
we’ll stroll down rainbows and pluck cotton candy
from stray clouds along the way

you’re my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
i don’t want your riches i just wanna, bathe in your glow

i’ll run my fingers through your hair
and kiss your cheek
‘cos i’m the kind of guy who takes it
nice and slow

it’s been a long time since butterflies have visited my stomach
and they ain’t leaving soon
not with you in the room
not with you in the same room as me

here’s a box of chocolates, will you be my valentine?
i don’t need wings to fly, i’ll settle for a smile

awwwww I’ve grown all sappy and shit πŸ˜€ haha
comments/feedback appreciated!

2storeyheart (get ready for it-) VIDEOS!

Haha. So last night’s gig was a blast. I got to perform 6 songs (lol) and the new song was pretty well received. And thanks to my sister I now have videos of me performing! all 6 songs!

(tonight you are) my star

the untitled ‘party song’

october angel

everyone’s got a myspace song now

paperback romance

car crash hearts and a love letter written by a half-dead romantic

Note- the video is out of sync with the audio and the last few seconds of each song are cut :S I have no idea why, but its better than nothing. Besides you can’t see my face in the videos anyway haha.

Thanks to all you guys who took your time to come and watch me perform. Thanks to Jasmine for organizing another great gig, and to the bands that performed. An Honest Mistake– I think I’ve found my new favorite local band! You guys were awesome. When Jasmine asked if I was single, I should’ve said ‘yeah..until I fell in love tonight.’ lol

Here’s to more songs and gigs in the future. Feedback/comments would be appreciated πŸ™‚
And if you want more, you can head on to myspace.

An update of some sort

So it’s been awhile since I’ve written anything, but I figured I might as well try to write something on this blog.

For those interested, the past few months I’ve been working on pre-production for Happy Together. No idea when the episodes will be released, but yeah you can head over to the website to see some pictures of the characters. When the site updates, I’ll announce it here as well.

I finally finished writing my ‘party’ song yesterday. It’s still untitled, and I haven’t recorded it yet, but I’ll be playing it this weekend. When you guys listen to it, maybe you can help suggest a title haha. I’ll probably head into the studios next month to record an EP. Home studio recording just doesn’t cut it lol. But keep watching this space for more info.

October Angel

New 2storeyheart song ZOMG

October Angel

the best thing I could do
was to wake up next to you
when all I had with me
was a picture of you
by my bedside
oh your smile
i miss it so much
i wish you didn’t go

i memorize the sound of your footsteps as you walk away
the soft steps of your dance will never grace these ears again
and i know that i was wrong but too proud to admit it
and now you’re gone

you gave me more than enough chances but you never gave up
you were holding the line and i was holding the knife
and i cut and tore us apart
then i cut and tore us apart

oh god, everytime i think of those eyes
and how i’ll never fall into them again
i’ll only see them
in pictures or memories

I’ve been playing this new song at the past few open mic gigs I’ve played at but never recorded it. Since there was nobody home tonight, I decided to sing my heart out in my room studio (lol) which looks like this:

anyway, the song is streaming online on
Myspace or you can download it here.

Feel free to comment/flame me/whatever/give your feed back about the song πŸ™‚
“george stop singing go and die!!11!11!1”

EDIT: link fixed, was broken just now :p thanks Moy

EDIT: also I forgot to mention, this song was written before my ‘on letting go’ comic. Just some random trivia
