My First Album Is Out!
My first album "To Fall In Love" is out now available for streaming and or for purchase on all digital platforms (CD Baby, Spotify, iTunes, Deezer, etc.).
I've been working on this album for years starting in Manila, and finally finishing the album here in Los Angeles, California.
This first album is so special to me because I took a brave step to start writing songs from scratch and learning the guitar in 2012, as cathartic healing to my lost identity as a traveling third-culture kid, and longing for the feeling of home and belonging. My songs are drawn from emotions - personal and inspired experiences on love that was happening all around me. All the while, I was finding and developing what to do with my "nice" voice and turned it to a distinct and unique style.
This is dedicated to all my friends, the brave and ever so talented artistic souls I met along the way through organizing Open Mics in Manila who I hope through the music and art community, continue to be vulnerable enough to share a piece of their beautiful selves to the world and leave a mark.
I hope I continue to able to inspire beginning artists and they can be encouraged to re-claim the creative artist in themselves.
Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine actually finishing this album 7 years later and find a sense of accomplishment on my musical endeavors.
But at last, it's finally done!
A special thank you to:
Jeck Apilado for producing the first few tracks in Manila and making the magic of having something come out of nothing and seeing it come alive. I could never forget the way I felt when I first heard the finish tracks.
Sergio De Anda for continuously working with me to envision how the new tracks sound like to complete the album in California. I'm so grateful to cross paths with an extremely talented producer.
This album is dedicated to my family, who has always been there for me through thick and thin.
Thank you God, for your healing through music, your acceptance, and your grace. Thank you for always being there.
