I Write The Songs #75 featuring Pitch Feather

by | Aug 1, 2015

Songwriter of the week: Alberta and Chuan Leong aka Pitch Feather

Pitch Feather are the delightful vocals of Alberta Leong and the superb instrument skills of husband Chuan on songs written by these two inspired artists. The band hails from Singapore and serves a nice mix of folk, indie, rock and rock shortened to “indie blue rock”. 1inmusic also did a review of their album Mountains and Tides.

Alberta and Chuan have also released a couple of seasonal singles and we have no doubt that they will be gracing our waves with new melodies soon, or at least we do hope so. Since Mountains and Tides was recorded from November 2011 to July 2013, we are gently expecting something to come along around 2016-17 ;).
