Interview with Bebe from Bebe’s WishNoise Origin
When did your journey as a musician begin?
My parents used to take me to a lot of house parties when I was little. My father’s a musician by profession and most of those parties we attended were filled with musical folk. There would be singing, A LOT of jamming, and the other, older kids there would all take it in turns to play some tunes on the piano. I remember feeling at awe and even envious at some point – I wanted to play, too! My parents eventually noticed this and they soon got me an electric piano, one of those old Casios, to play with at home.
Sure enough, I immediately explored those keys and my mum recalls on that same evening how I excitedly ran to her in the kitchen telling her that I could play a song by Madonna. So she followed me into the room and I started playing the bassline intro to “Material Girl.” I was around 3 years old at the time.
How did your band form/come together?
Stumbled upon a gig with my childhood buddy and godbro, Ferdie (drummer) and very good friend, Charles (bassist) in 2018. Although we’ve known each other for a while, that was the first time the 3 of us shared the stage together and it was a sweet surprise to discover what amazing chemistry we had on and off stage that we just had to keep the music going after that event. After learning about my original music, Charles insisted that we try ‘resurrecting’ them which has been a wish I’ve always wanted to fulfil, and hence the bandname, which was also his idea.
Who designed your band logo?
Well, it isn’t exactly a logo, per se. It’s a free font created by Vernon Adams which I’ve chosen to use on our website. It kinda grew on me so I decided to keep it consistent across our different media platforms and art to create some sort of uniformity.
We’re yet to give birth to a proper logo, but logo designing has proven to be quite a challenge for us! We really should just get someone to help us out on this! Any takers out there? Give us a buzz!!!!
If Bebe’s Wish could open a show for any artist/musician/band in the world, who would it be?
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
Surely still here in our Home Sweet Home Kong with these boys (aside from my family) working on whatever rocks our boat, and of course, making more music as we collaborate with our local musician friends. It’s my ultimate goal for all my music, to have each and every one of our musical friends take part and hopefully, have their talent exposed via my music where everyone gets to share a piece of the cake, when it does come. That’s my wish.
