Girls To The Front is an NME live music series that spotlights dynamic female and non-binary talent and celebrates diversity and inclusion within the music industry. This upcoming showcase, which is NME’s first-ever live show in Asia, will feature Singaporean DIY pop artist Shye, who won Best New Act from Asia at the BandLab NME Awards 2022, and rising singer-songwriter shazza. Joining them are chamber pop singer-songwriter rhyu and Singapore-based Indonesian alt-pop artist noui, who most recently released her sophomore EP ‘Border Room’ in January. 

NME’s first live show in Asia has been a long time coming, and I couldn’t be more excited that it’s under the banner of Girls to the Front,” said Karen Gwee, NME Networks’ Managing Editor – Music, in a press statement. “noui, rhyu, shazza and Shye are some of the most exciting emerging pop artists in Singapore and I can’t wait for attendees to see this talented line-up in such a special setting.”
