Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

Released December 12, 2022 I wrote this song for me as a way to express that I believe in myself. The lyrics are more of a conversation with myself – things I’d like to hear from someone. Interestingly, I just recorded it through my GarageBand app, and Lance Abellon of Laya Manila was able to mix and master it.

What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?

Having written it for myself, I thought the song did not have any impact, but surprisingly, this is one of those songs that listeners connected to.

All I wanted to let them know is they are loved, and a person who really believed in them would always show care and freedom through their actions.

It’s also timely and accurately placed in a nice compilation album called, “Mga Kuwento ng Paglaya,” organized by Laya Manila. I think we become limitless and free when someone believes in us.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?

I focused more on the lyrics. I usually write like this—not much chorus, with fingerstyle melody at the intro. I think it’s reflects me really well. So I do appreciate the song.

What’s next on your journey?

There will be a Holy Week special held by Laya Manila this 2023. I’ll be one of the performers.
