FRESH: ‘Tell Me The Truth’ – Jeffrey Chan

“Tell Me The Truth”, asks Jeffrey Chan…

by Christopher Smith

“Tell Me The Truth” is the second single taken from Jeffrey Chan‘s forthcoming EP. Set to a dance-pop beat, the autobiographical track explores how a lack of trust has affected his past relationships. The music video is co-directed with Jeffrey Chan’s longtime collaborator Nick Karras.

Giving pop and 00’s influences a modern electronic edge, Jeffrey Chan is a singer/songwriter who is unafraid to push the boundaries. Chan grew up in Sydney, Australia where his passion for music was first ignited through classical piano lessons from the age of 5, but it wasn’t until later when he began to incorporate his piano training with his love for singing and songwriting, into modern pop music. With carefully crafted pop tones, his unique approach to songwriting and his smooth deep tones – Chan has a distinctively unique sound which can be likened to no other.

His self-released 2016 debut “Spectrum” reflected on his influences growing up, combining elements of eDM, dance, and 80’s pop. As time went on, his style grew to become more wide-ranging, where 2018’s FaultLine added on more retro-pop, funk, and dance elements to his sound. Preceded by the release and success of his hip-hop influenced lead single “Porsche” and the 80’s synth-driven “Breathe Heavy”, the album led Chan into new visual and sonic territories.

Written by Christopher Smith

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
