SGMUSO Live Showcase: New York Announcement 
Aug 05, 2015


SGMUSO Live Showcase - New York: The Final 2 Acts Revealed!

The final two Singaporean music acts to secure a unique opportunity to extend and enhance their export effort in a collaboration between The Music Society, Singapore (SGMUSO) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB), titled SGMUSO Live Showcase have been chosen, and will perform in New York this September. 

Rock act Caracal and rapper THELIONCITYBOY (TLCB) will perform at various SGMUSO Live Showcases during the programming at Singapore: Inside Out in New York at Madison Square Park from 23rd to 27th September 2015. 


About Caracal:  



Caracal is a rock band from Singapore that is a bit of a rarity. Their devotion to brutal honesty forms the spine of their music- a ferocious mix of colossal riffs, catchy melodies and epic choruses. One need only look at their sweat-drenched, frenetic and emotionally-draining live displays to understand why. The intensity applies to everything they do, triggering a deeply loyal fanbase, huge shoutalongs and the frequent mosh during their live shows. 

About THELIONCITYBOY:  



Uncaged in the form of THELIONCITYBOY is Asia's latest ally in music after partnering with BMBX, a label formed by Apl.de.Ap from the BLACK EYED PEAS. A rapper, producer and music activist, he has been seen on TEDxSingapore, while building superfans and a network of industry champions at MIDEM 2012, A3C 2013, SXSW 2013. CMW 2013, Music Matters 2013 and most recently CMW 2014.


SGMUSO Live Showcase
Caracal and THELIONCITYBOY conciude the inaugural cohort of SGMUSO Live Showcase acts this year, joining Charlie Lim, Gentle Bones, Pleasantry, SA and Take Two who performed in London and Beijing respectively. 

The acts will endeavour to seek their own shows in and around New York, in addition to performances at SGMUSO Live Showcase, to gain more exposure, contacts and market insights as well as hone their craft while overseas, following the success of previous music acts in Beijing and London. Singapore: Inside Out will make its homecoming in Singapore from 27th November to 6th December 2015 on Tan Quee Lan Street.
