Be a part of MAYO's 1st Full Length Album, to be released in 2013!
"Recording sessions have already taken place, which officially started last May 15, 2012.
We've already recorded around 5 songs together at Point Bee Multimedia, led by Aaron Gonzales,
and with my good buddies - very talented people (Japo Anareta, Marie De Guzman & Aurelio Castro III),
plus a few guest celebrities and rock legends like Francis Brew Reyes (Peso Movement/The Dawn)
and a whole lot more! Ultimately, all of this is really for my love of music, and it's my deepest
desire to contribute and create a positive impact in our local music scene and beyond.
I really believe in the songs and I'm excited to share them with you!
"The upcoming record is composed of cumulative life experiences, good music played
with heroes, friends and a lot of goodwill. It's something all of us can relate to.
Hopefully, them songs can be your companion; the same way they ended up being mine.
Baby steps. Conquering everything one note at a time. And this is where you come in
to the picture.
We need your help and support to record the remaining songs + album packaging + official launching.
So far we have made some progress and I'm looking forward to your personal investment on this.
Let's do it for the love of music and as an act of positive assertion for the belief in our local talents.
I believe in you, and I thank you in advance. As you put your pledge/s in this project, I promise you
that you will receive not just some personal attention from me but some awesome music as well -
PLUS some giveaways that avid fans and listeners of my music would enjoy! Yup, your helping won't be in vain.
So you see, if we do push this through together, then we've made quite an achievement; not just for ourselves
but for the entire music scene as well! We are all in this together and with you, we can make things happen!
