InSing.com: Up Close with King Kong Jane

Tonight's gonna be a good good night! See you at 7.30pm in the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre!

We're starting the 45min set with "If It Wasn't For You", and will also debut our new song titled "How Could You?"

In the meantime, check out this interview that Colin did with the awesome Patrick Chng, that has been uploaded to InSing.com:

King Kong Jane was formed in late 2005 when the guys were studying at NTU. Singer Colin Lim was invited by guitarist Ian Ho to sing for his hall’s jam band and he decided to ‘give it a shot’. Since then, the five of them have been playing as King Kong Jane.

Flash forward to 2010, the group is now established as one of the most exciting live acts in Singapore. They started as one of the new bands at Baybeats in 2007, and later took part and won Power98’s Powerjam band competition in 2008. Later that year, they were also accepted into Noise Singapore’s Apprenticeship Programme and were mentored by The Observatory’s Vivian Wang.

Their power-packed melodic songs, unpretentious aura and Colin’s charismatic stage presence have won them lots of admirers, me included. The band is currently in the mixing stage for their debut album with Leonard Soosay and will be hitting the Esplanade outdoor stage on Sunday in the weekend titled Rockin’ the Region: Singapore.

I caught up with front man Colin to talk about their upcoming album and more.
