Ghazli Sulaiman, 26 this year , only got into music when he was in my late teens. When he turned 20, he started writing a few songs with an old acoustic guitar at home. The songs were mostly simple, had some catchy hooks. He was keen on writing songs and music as he grew up listening to different genres; from oldies classics of the carpenters, simon and garfunkel, to the alternative 90s, Nirvana, Faith No More ,Red Hot Chilli Peppers , Weezer, Smashing Pumpkins.
Not long, a few friends from an indie label (BoredToThe Core), gave him an opportunity to perform at a venue. He started performing only right before enlisting for National Service. Ghaz got to play at Library@Esplanade which was both a nerve wrecking yet exciting experience for him.
Though he do love certain kinds of music that might be considered ' progressive and technical ', he was always more emotionally drawn to music that was bare and honest. He says: "Sometimes it feels like you hear more with just acoustic guitar and vocals. I had a fondness for simple yet honest music and I think that's what I am aiming for and share this with an audience."
