Formed in April 2014, Ciao Turtle is a singer-songwriting duo made up of Dennis Ng and Jared Chan who have been playing together for over eight years as part of a wider band under the moniker Sennett Estate. Products of Singapore’s 80s generation, Ciao Turtle’s musical influences include Jason Mraz, Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and local 90’s band, The Padres. Musically diverse, Ciao Turtle explores a blend of genres such as funk, folk, pop rock and acoustic pop in their song-writing.
Ciao Turtle released their first single titled When The Stars on 23 August 2014 and in November 2014, their song Being Here was selected as one of three finalists out of almost 1,000 entries for SG50 The Gift of Song songwriting competition organised by Mediacorp.
