I'm so excited for this cover, as well as the next few, as I've never really tried anything like this before! Being able to round up a group of talented friends to collaborate with on projects is such a blessing! The APW Live is actually modelled on a successful Taiwanese Youtube channel called Yuran Media, which hosts their own live sessions for all types of artists, first starting out with more indie artists before progressing on to inviting even big artists such as Miu Chu, VChuan, AJia and Queen Wei to perform covers with them, filmed in creative and/or professional settings. Basically, spreading the good music even further, and allowing these artists a chance to get their music heard, or to just have an opportunity to further their abilities by changing up the atmosphere or arrangement of their original songs to give them a whole new vibe.
I'm especially honoured to have my friend Yishi here to help me with this round of covers, I really can't get enough of her voice!! But more about that later. You must be wondering why we're covering an English song! Let's just say I was feeling spontaneous and left the final song choice to my sister Jan and good friend Aw, and I'm really happy to see how the song turned out! It's really rare to find a group of people who work well together and are able to all be giving their 100%, so I really do feel very lucky to be able to collaborate with this bunch of awesome people!
I hope that with APW Live I can achieve the same kind of goals as Yuran media(of course on a smaller scale). APW Live isn't just a cover series-I hope that as it grows, it can be a platform for other artists to showcase their uniqueness and express creativity in ways that isn't possible by themselves. So if you have any ideas or covers that you'd like to share with me, feel free to do so! If we happen to be in the right place at the right time, maybe someday a collaboration is possible ;)

I've always believed that words mean nothing if they can't be put into action. So I decided to start a Youtube project called APW Live to share our ideas on music with all of you in a different medium altogether! No writing, no reading, just listening. Please like, share and subscribe to our Youtube page here, and as always, we hope you enjoy listening to them!
