“Songs For A Season” is the debut project from a husband and wife songwriting duo - Elvin and Esther Foong. The 7 songs on the album were born out of a season of challenge and transition, and covers 2 key themes: Faith and Family. It is their hope that this album will serve as a powerful reminder to themselves and to others that even through the toughest seasons, a song can rise that will bring meaning to the struggle, and that light always triumphs over darkness.
1. Glorified (Awake My Soul)
2. The Burning Edge of the Shadow (feat. Sabrina-Grace Ng)
3. 幸福很简单 (Happiness is Simple)
4. Hand in Mine
5. 呼唤后的相遇 (The Encounter)
6. Praise Remains
7. 给宝贝的歌 (A Song For My Darling)
In a world that's inundated with bad news, and where even the arts and entertainment have become increasingly dark and grim, this album brings a breath of fresh air and a pop of sunshine. Despite being borne out of challenging circumstances, the songs on this album focus on the hope that knowing God and having family brings. Stylistically, there's something for everyone here: from the synth-pop trimmings of "Burning Edge of the Shadow", to the country/folksy brightness of "Praise Remains"; from the earnest Mandopop trills of "The Encounter" to the heartwarming strings arrangement in "A Song For My Darling" - the music is dressed to appeal. But more importantly, the message of hope, joy and love is universal, and we are believing for hearts to be touched and lives to be changed just from listening to these songs.

Songs for a Season (Elvin and Esther Foong)
We (Elvin and Esther) are Singaporean singer-songwriters who are passionate about faith and family. We've been married for 10 years and have 2 wonderful children - Nathan (7) and Phoebe (5).
Music has always been an avenue for us to express what's going on in our hearts and our heads. The 7 tracks on this album have been specially curated from the songs that we have written from 2016 to today. These songs - 4 in English and 3 in Mandarin - encapsulate the experiences that we've been through in the past 3 years, going through seasons of transition and rediscovering our identity in God and the value of our marriage.
We're very proud of the songs that we've written for this album - as they showcase our broad range of songwriting styles, from folk to synth-pop. Our hope is that the songs will encourage and inspire listeners on their own life journeys as well!
