Singapore singer-songwriter Renny Goh has never lived abroad nor has she been to the United States. But she is taking a leap of faith by moving to the music mecca of Los Angeles to pursue her passion.

Goh, 26, a regular in the live music bar scene here, leaves this month to pursue a bachelor's degree in music (composition and scoring) at the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles.

She was offered a partial scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, but she decided to go to the institute instead because of the vibrant music scene in LA.

"Los Angeles will be a better scene. My goal is to meet people who can inspire me - songwriters, producers and engineers," says Goh, who plays a farewell solo show at St James Power Station on Sunday.
