The Comeback Artist

by Azrin Abdullah January. 17, 2009 13833 views

I was invited to session for Maman [mamanteacherspet.wordpress.com]'s latest solo album, entitled 'Taqwa [en.wikipedia.org]', which is due to be released in March this year.

I played the acoustic guitar, bass & oud on some songs in this album.

Besides that, I also did a photoshoot for him, photos of which are to be used for the album sleeve & inlay designs.

Quick reference: Maman was the singer for a now-defunct band called 'Teacher's Pet', which consisted some of Singapore's best musicians at that time (i.e. early 90s). In my opinion, they were a musicians' band, equivalent to the American band ‘Mr. Big’.
They had a song called 'Warisan Wanita Terakhir' [youtube.com] which is still requested on some radio stations.
Please do click here [mamanteacherspet.wordpress.com] for more information about the man himself.


There will be a special showcase by him, backed by an all-acoustic band ('yours truly' included), tomorrow at the Singapore Expo Hall 6. He is scheduled to perform around 5pm.

Do come down if you can & give your support!

I was going thru the picture thinking this oughta be in one of the album sleeves that you get to work on, and boy was I right! They're perfect and you did a great job Azrin. I have to say that by looking at this it reflects greatly of you as a musician/designer/photographer... I really like this set a lot.

Cheers!
