September, 2020 - I'M COMPLETELY FLOORED. Alindahaw is a Grand Prize winner in the
John Lennon Songwriting Contest! I've been wanting to win this contest for years, and I'm proud to have won it with this song that is near to my heart, inspired by my grandparents' farm in the Philippines and sung in my native Visayan and English.
Check out the full winners list here.
I also want to give a shoutout to the team that produced and played on this song, Ainjel Emme, Anthony Lopez, Carl Thomson, Austin Underhill, and Jasmine Mills; Phelia Benigian, for writing this with me and helping to tweak grammar where needed. :) Full track credits here.
June, 2020 - It was an honor (and a trip) to share the stage with Emily Earle, MojoFlo, and host Eric Gnezda for Season 6 of Songs at the Center, now airing on local PBS stations around the US. You'll hear us sharing songs and the stories behind our songs round-robin style. Check out my performances of Round & Round and an unreleased tune called Slow Jam, plus lots more on the show!
