2004: I helped form the group “Haylo” and song-wrote & choreographed their single/video, “Smart and Sexy”.
2007-2009: I started working on music with Q-York Edutainment, originally from NY, USA.
-We created TVC jingles for Nestea Fit and Maxx Candy and song-wrote for Paloma Esmeria; “Fil-Vote” Campaign in LA, CA; and Walter Robinson’s Hip-hop musical, “One”. -Then we were commissioned by Gawad Kalinga to create a theme song, “Time to Shine” that founder Tony Meloto uses for his public appearances.
2010: Our single “Mainit“ won ‘Video of the Year’ at the Urban Music Awards, ‘Song of the Year’ at the 2010 Hip-hop Music Awards, and was nominated at the 2010 Radio Music Awards & Myx Music Awards.
2011: I released “Love, Life & D’Light” as a solo album distributed under Homeworkz / Universal Records.
-First single/video, “Pinays Rise” directed by Treb Monteras climbed the Myx & Channel V charts. Nominated for “Best Music Video” at the 25th Awit Awards.
-Second single/video “Connection” with JayR & Q-York has futuristic and international feel. Nominated for Best Collaboration at Myx Music Awards and won Best Dance Recording at the 25th Awit Awards.
-Whether you want to think about Love, get energized about Life, or get inspired by the Light, this album’s got it all with infectious beats, positive vibes, and collabora- tions with the other great urban acts.
