The WHABBY Music Team

Mike Spinks
The Campaigner

The founder of CITY65 Music, Mike – a musician himself – has been a big supporter of independent musicians for many years. He organises and hosts many open mic sessions around town, and also curates performing artists for Hard Rock Café (Singapore) on a weekly basis. Mike has also organised major music festivals in Singapore dedicated to promoting the country's musical talent. He is the 'people's person' of the team with an extensive network of musical collaborators. 

Rachel Mason

Dr. Levan Wee
The Architect

Levan Wee played an instrumental part in WHABBY Music’s conception and growing the global online community to reach 50,000 followers in 48 countries in the world. We would not have been able to achieve what we have so far, without his expertise in social media combined with his PhD in Anthropology, and his tireless approach to building communities, engaging with fans and championing our music community. His success as a Singaporean musician, achieving a few No. 1 hits and having played hundreds of live shows to packed audiences gave him that grass roots understanding of the tenacity needed to be successful, even before social media was a thing! Levan manages 'Bobby the Sheep' – a comedy channel with over 32k followers. We would highly recommend you check it out!

As a digital native, Kalli steers naturally towards social media and has a background in Web Communications and Digital Marketing. She is passionate to conceptualise ideas into words, and words in action. She is always open to challenges and is constantly looking at the "how come" and "what if". Lastly, she is always down to rock out to the latest Chinese Hip Hop songs.
Sam Padbidri
