|Savy, a name to watch out for in 2014|
Pop-tastic! A name and voice to watch out for belongs to Savy
, a Cambodian-American singer/songwriter born in Battambang at the end of the Khmer Rouge reign in 1979. Both her parents survived the genocide and emigrated to Seattle, USA that same year when she was just five months old. Her earliest memory of singing was when she was four, keeping herself entertained with her favorite toy, a record player. On 1 February she releases a new single and video, About a Boy, and it's available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and more. It’s an upbeat, feel good song laced with her soulful voice. Savy recounts, “I wrote About a Boy when I was feeling hopeful and delighted by a special someone. Things don't always work out and last forever but I'll always have this song as a snapshot to that time and emotion. That's how music soothes me.” Savy will be part of the Cambodian Music Festival that will be staged on 3 August 2014 at the Ford Theatre in Hollywood, California, and already confirmed as attending are Dengue Fever and our own Cambodian Space Project, with Laura Mam as well.
