Yeo’s Recovery Channel Album Preview Party
October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree – $10
Big Bao invites you to Yeo’s Album Preview Party, a night for friends and fans to enjoy listening sessions of Yeo’s forthcoming album “Recovery Channel” ahead of its release to the public, a live set from Yeo including the debut performance of Yeo and his choir, with visuals and DJs all night.
Following the release of previous albums “Ganbaru” (2016) and “Desire Path” (2017), Yeo will release “Recovery Channel” in late 2019.
The album is a commentary on people of colour struggling to find confidence and proof of their own humanity in an environment dictated by the perpetual cycle of bias against them– conflict ensues while love becomes rare but hope still exists.
The album highlights Yeo’s genre bending production as he continues to push the dimensions of contemporary R&B, pop and electronic music.
