    Kudos to Mr Cheong Waii Hoong, founder of Hoong Sound (http://www.hoongsound.com), for his wonderful work in capturing my sound so very well. Waii Hoong is a very multi- talented musician, composer, sound engineer as well as a great friend who believes in supporting local artistes like me.

    Lay me down Lyrics

    Yes I do, I believe
    That one day I will be, where I was
    Right there, right next to you
    And it's hard, the days just seem so dark
    The moon, and the stars, are nothing without you
    Your touch, your skin, where do I begin?
    No words can explain, the way I'm missing you
    The night, this emptiness, this hole that I'm inside
    These tears, they tell their own story

    You told me not to cry when you were gone
    But the feeling's overwhelming, it's much too strong
    Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
    And make sure you're alright
    I'll take care of you
    And I don't want to be here if I can't be with you tonight

    I'm reaching out to you
    Can you hear my call? (Who's to say you won't hear me?)
    This hurt that I've been through
    I'm missing you, missing you like crazy

    You told me not to cry when you were gone
    But the feeling's overwhelming, it's much too strong
    Can I lay by your side, next to you, you
    And make sure you're alright
    I'll take care of you
    And I don't wanna be here if I can't be with you tonight

    Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
    Lay me down tonight, lay me by your side
    Can I lay by your side, next to you, you

Once every few years, comes along a singer that is ready to break through the cookie cutter mould, to really stamp his unique foot-print and get noticed for the right reason. Matthew Quek is this next artist who is ready to do so.

Matthew, who resides in Singapore, has been involved in vocal training and singing for over ten years. He is a competent pianist, having passed Grade 8 in piano performance (Associated Board of the Royal School of Music, London). Matthew then proceeded to pursue singing, passing Grade 8 (ABRSM) in Voice with distinction and receiving his Associate Diploma (ATCL) in Voice from Trinity College (London, England).

In 2004 Matthew won the top title in the MOE X Factor Elite challenge talent competition. Matthew’s original composition was one of the three compositions selected for the finals in the Rhapsody 2002 competition’s song-writing category. In July 2005, Matthew was invited to sing a Solo Item from “The Phantom of the Opera” during a farewell ceremony for Dr Ng Eng Hen and has sung for President Nathan at the Istana in January 2011, and his government dignitaries. In 2009 Matthew recorded and launched his fifth album entitled "My Romance". Produced by internationally renowned jazz musician Professor Jeremy Monteiro, this album contains a unique and enchanting fusion of jazz and musical theatre numbers.

On the 6th July to the 15th July 2012, Matthew represented Singapore in a prestigious overseas competition- the World Championship of Performing Arts (WCOPA) held in Los Angeles Hollywood. This is the equivalent of the OLYMPIC PERFORMING ARTS COMPETITION of the world where the organizers give out gold, silver and bronze medals.

This project was officially endorsed by the National Arts Council of Singapore (NAC), and I donned the Singapore national colors

Having received a partial scholarship by WCOPA itself, Matthew also was granted a subsidy from NAC.

By God's grace, Matthew obtained a silver medal in the senior vocal category of the World Championship of performing arts held at Los Angeles Hollywood.

Matthew Quek has been personally trained by Dean Kaelin, the internationally acclaimed vocal coach who taught David Archuleta of "American Idol" fame. Matthew is now a fully certified International Voice Teachers of Mix (IVTOM) vocal coach and is Singapore and Asia's only representative.
