Relugged Music features Bevlyn Khoo: You Are My Angel

Bevlyn is a Singaporean singer-songwriter whose ability to sing an eclectic mixture of English, Mandarin, Japanese and French has commanded a solid following and respect across various ethnic groups and ages in and out of Singapore. Bevlyn’s open-mindedness to a wide spectrum of music has led to her own music often likened to a cup of fusion tea – an expression of the wild, the sensitive, the angst, and the lonely. Her lyrics explore her own experiences and the experiences that the common man can relate to.

After successfully getting into the finals for the first annual singing competition organized by The Ark Café & Tea (木船民歌餐厅)in 1998, Bevlyn was soon sought to perform as a regular part-time singer since 1999.

Bevlyn has also been an active demo-singer for many Singaporean songwriters since 2000. Her song-writing talent was spotlighted when her song-entry <<交叉路口>> successfully got into the finals for a nation-wide Mandarin-pop song-writing competition, Xin-yao-jie’2003 (新谣节’2003) and was recorded into a compilation CD sold in various record stores. This song was subsequently sold to a Taiwanese singer, Freya Lam (林凡).

In Jan 2003, Bevlyn quit her job in the social-work field to pursue her passion in music. She became a contracted a cappella singer with two groups named “Notations” and “Nanu”, which were under the umbrella of The A cappella Society of Singapore (TAS). She performed with the group in school tours to school children even to supporters in Taiwan and The Netherlands.

Besides being a wedding-singer under a group A Little Dream which she co-found, Bevlyn performs a mixture of English, Mandarin and French songs regularly with her band at various pubs and café. In 2005, Bevlyn tried her hand in acting as well in the Phua Chu Kang musical. In 2006, Bevlyn’s voice was heard over TV for the theme song <<灰姑娘>> (Cinderella) of Mediacorp’s drama serial <<钻石情缘>> (An Enchanted Life)

Bevlyn took the whole of 2007 to put together a 6-track EP album, of which 5 songs are written by herself (3 Mandarin and 2 English), and 1 newly arranged French cover ‘La Vie En Rose’ to showcase her versatility. The album titled ‘Lonely Afternoon” was launched in Jan 2008, and Bevlyn subsequently gave her first concert in Aug 2008 to a full-house audience at NUS UCC Theatre Hall.

Bevlyn is also the voice behind the sub-theme song <<保温>> for Mediacorp’s drama serial <<小娘惹>> (Little Nyonya). She has been signed to Japanese label S2S since November 2008.

“Lonely Afternoon” was awarded “Best Indie Album” at the Singapore Entertainment Awards 2009.

Her first full-length album “You Are My Angel” is released at all major record stores from April 09.
