My pal Daniel Dharanee has put his money where his mouth is and set up Covenant Artists Management to pursue his dream of launching an Asian artiste worldwide.
He graciously invited me onboard as his publicist and I have accepted. His first step was to sign up local icons Roslan Aziz, Amber Chia and da Prodigal Son, to market and manage.
Amber Chia. I’m drooling so much my laptop keyboard is in danger of short-circuiting. Read the following while I try to get Amber (heavy wistful sigh) out of my mind and concentrate on this post.
This Sabahan lass comes from a humble family. At the tender age of 17, she moved to
This earned her an acknowledgement in the Malaysian Book Of Records as the first Asian to become the face of Guess International Watches. She was the best female model
Amber’s skyrocketing modeling career has empowered her to carry out charity work and she continually strives to improve her skills to better her career.
Roslan also comes from a humble background. His talent was discovered by his grandfather who bought him his first drumset at the age of five. The prodigy was a regular member of his uncle's band The Dukes.
He accepted an engineering job from the legendary Booty Boys in 1982, and has since recorded hundreds of albums and later produced Sheila Majid's ground breaking albums dimensi baru and emosi. He then formed Roslan Aziz Productions in 1988 signing Zubir Ali as his first artiste.
Over the years, Roslan Aziz Productions has developed into
Among the numerous awards garnered by Roslan were Best Album for “Gamal” from AIM 1995, best album AIM awards “Ratu” (1996) Best Album award for “Emosi” at BASF,
Roslan Aziz was also one of the judges in the Malaysian Idol seasons 1 and 2. Roslan directed and produced the historical Siti Nurhaliza concert at the Royal Albert hall in London in 2005 and later was appointed the musical director for the phenomenal sell-out Puteri Gunung Ledang the musical in 2006. He was appointed the coveted post of Principal at Akademi Fantasia Season 5 which concluded in May 2007.
aLi is the latest project by Roslan and his long time friend, Mukhlis Nor, a song writer and the man behind many succesful albums by Zainal Abidin and Sheila Majid. In this exciting endevour they have decided to be the frontline as the singers of their own creative songs.
This is a tough challenge for this duo as the music that they are bringing in is something transcendental, bravely crossing racial boundaries to wider appeal from all Malaysians.
