This act is Singapore’s newest, freshest premier all-female modern jazz ensemble featuring an eclectic collaboration of musical minds & artistic visions. In the formative process of finding its voice, the group draws influence from the provocative, progressive, outspoken nature and backgrounds of its members.

Comprising Sharon, Wendy, Yap Shu Mei, Melissa & Audrey, these 5 musicians were initially curated for the Singapore Wine & Jazz Festival 2010 at Fraser’s Robertson Walk. After a few rehearsals, it became evident that a musical chemistry had blossomed and is taking shape.

Jazz aficionados, veteran musicians & casual audiences alike gave a rousing stamp of approval to the groups playful, inventive & organic maiden performance on 2 July, 2010.

Not long after, on 27 July 2010, they appeared on an interview on on Channel News Asia’s Prime Time Morning, performing an original piece, “In-You-It”.

August 26, 2011 marked a major milestone for the band as it performed its debut ticketed event to a sell-out audience at the Esplanade Recital Studio. “D.U.I. -- Dreaming under The Influence” comprised original material & covers seamlessly knit together in a 5-part improvised suite. Both the dynamic music & evocative multimedia visuals transported the enraptured audience into a shared dream-state.

Apart from the obvious “all-female” marketing trait of the band, it is the dissimilarity of each member’s musical & life journeys, which synergises a revitalised sound & approach to jazz, extending it beyond the traditional & standard offerings in the market.

The common thread which stitches these women together is a shared musical destiny. Audiences will, hence, see more original music & expressions born out of The All Female Jazz Band.
