SHAK & THE BAITS
Since its debut performance in 2016, Shak and the Baits has been a growing household name in Singapore. The band is led by Shak, a spoken-word poetry artist turned singer-songwriter who chronicles his life story through his self-penned folk tunes and lyrics. Inspired by soul, blues, folk-pop and hip-hop, Shak’s rich, soulful voice conveys lyrics that tell a story that tugs at the deepest recess of your heart. Shak and the Baits has performed in several local venues and festivals such as Esplanade, Singapore Night Festival 2016/2017 and Shine Festival 2017. Shak has been recently been featured in the The Straits Times, a Singapore Newspaper, as one of the rising talents in the home-grown music scene.
