Kitchie Nadal graced one of the stages of St. James Powerstation at the Eve’s Faire last 25 November 2012 right after Barbie Almalbis energized the OPM-hungry crowd. The gig was organized by Requiem Rising Pinoytuner, a part of the groups’ string of events which bring in Philippine artists to Pinoys living in Singapore. I’m a bit ashamed to admit that I never had the chance to catch Kitchie Nadal back home, neither would I expect to see her outside of my home country. That is why when you send in two of the most influential female artists from the Philippines to showcase their artistry in Singapore, the Eve’s Faire gig was a double whammy to the Filipino community.

After the success of the Aquostika series with Franco & JohnoyRequiem Rising & Pinoytuner moved on to bring their project to a bigger scale. Headlining two of the acclaimed female alternative artists from the Philippines, Eve’s Faire was one of the groups’ ambitious event which aimed to agitate the foundations of St. James Powerstation. The first set showcased the sweet & charming Barbie Almalbis, who was responsible for launching Hungry Young Poets and Barbie’s Cradle  into stardom.

Franco was announced to be Requiem Rising & Pinoytuner‘s last leg of the Aquostika series for 2012. Held at a decked out joint along Bali Lane, Blu Jaz Cafe once again, swayed to the rhythms of OPM & acoustic renditions as one of the revered Philippine artist infused reggae-influenced OPM alternative music to pinoys living in Singapore. Our group MASP was tasked to cover the event and it was futile not to when the artist you are covering has revolutionized the verve of OPM. The show’s turn-out was more than what was expected as the two-night gig sold-out weeks before the event. (more…)

Johnoy was a close friend back in college when we used to stay in the same dormitory, even way back before his first band “Bridge” was formed. That was why when he announced that Requiem Rising SG was bringing him here in Singapore, prepping-up for his coverage was a no brainer. We offered our group MASP for a full coverage and the cool guys of Requiem Rising approved without hesitation. The gig’s turn-out went pretty well that Requiem had to book another show at a different venue, which eventually went sold-out as well.  (more…)

Natalie Hiong is a Singaporean artist who opened for Marie Digby on her recent gig here in Singapore last 18 October 2012. While waiting for Marie to prep up backstage, we managed to have a quick chat with Natalie and found her to be very pleasing. Our team managed to get along with her so well that she handed us free autographed CD’s of her single “Go Fly a Kite”. (more…)

During the time when YouTube was a media only meant to be accessed & shared, a few people has found the site’s potential to be a gateway for fame. Because of its powerful influence on the viewers, there have been countless aspiring musicians that have gotten the quick ticket to international stardom. One of the pioneers that took the first step in reaching out to the rest of the world was Marie Digby. Her first highlights on YouTube was an acoustic rendition of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, shot at what seemed to be inside a toilet. The video got an overwhelming response setting Marie Digby as one of the fastest rising stars in 2007. (more…)

A few months back, I received a call from a co-photog, Darwin, asking me to back him up for the upcoming Megadeth TH1RT3EN World Tour in Singapore. Apparently, I have been pestering him to rope me in since day one ever since he was contacted by LinVan Productions to cover their shows here. All the harassment has finally paid off & I was officially given the “all access pass”. LinVan Productions have been granting concert goers’ wishes for more than a decade & whenever they do, they never fail to impress the fans. The moment I knew they got the show, I nodded in full confidence. And special thanks to buddy Darwin, I owe you one!  (more…)
