Hailed by TimeOut magazine as one of Singapore's "best-loved entertainers", homegrown vocal powerhouse Alemay Fernandez is a rising star in the Asian Jazz scene. Known for her sultry-smooth tone and an onstage presence that keeps the audience eating out of the palm of her hand, she has performed with The Count Basie Orchestra, David Foster, The Platters' Bobby Soul, and opened for Laura Fygi & Incognito.
Hard To Imagine is her maiden album - a labour of love five years in the making. The album of original tracks is the singer's first foray into writing, arranging and producing. Deeply personal, the tunes are a diary of her journey as an artiste. Expect an elegant mix of jazz, soul & bluesy goodness backed by soulfully honest vocals. There are 21 musicians as well as 4 guest vocalists on this album featuring a cross-section of both Singaporean as well as internationally renowned musicians including drummer Erik Hargrove (who has toured with James Brown & Bootsy Collins), drummer Pablo Calzado (who has played with The Buena Vista Social Club), bassist Christy Smith (who has toured with Stevie Wonder), vocalist Richard Jackson (who has performed with Randy Brecker & Ernie Watts), vocalists Vanessa Fernandez & Michaela Therese (who have recorded and performed respectively with Brian McKnight).
