Asian Music Review | Asian voices matter
Anthemic, uplifting and full of energy!
Welcome to Asian Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
My name is John Jumadla and I’m the one responsible for the band Fifteen Minutes Later. I write the songs on my guitar and record them as demo and send to the FML guys to jam and after that, we hit the studio for recording. Kerwin Elman plays the drums (also plays bass with the band Odd Dumaguete), Mark Lui Ruiz plays the lead and rhythm guitars and also does the song production, and Jebb Elesterio plays the bass part.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released September 2, 2019. So many inspirations when writing this song. Somehow this is directed to our Almighty Father and somehow this song is a sort of prayer asking for guidance and light to shine on every step of the journey.
What is your vision for this project?
We hope to spread this song as far as we could to somehow give hope to the hopeless no matter how dark and wherever they are right now, there will always be a light coming your way. Sooner or later, light will shine their way. So let the dim light shine.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?
the bridge part where the lyrics goes:
Though Your dim light shines on me from far away, It gives me hope and strength to say, that I’m okay, I’m okay…
then the chorus: let Your dim light shine on me…
What’s next on your journey?
We will be trying to release acoustic songs this year and hopefully we can also release the performance video of the song “The Road Less Travelled”. Ata go 2023!
