2015 would not definitely not fall short of international music acts coming to the Philippines.
Here’s a couple of international artists who’ll be performing:
1. Michael Bublé
The multi-awarded Jazz artist will be performing in Manila this January 31st!! 🙂 I wanted to go but it’s too expensive… T___T
Don’t worry Michael, I’ll get rich first and then I’ll watch your concert… hopefully… someday…. (>.<)
Surely, many teenage fangirls are soooo excited this February.
WHAAAAATTT??! Even T-Pain is coming over?! I’m not sure if this is his first time, but Philippines is getting tons of international artists doing concerts over here, I couldn’t keep up with all of it. :O
4. Boyce Avenue
Okay, I know them because they’re very popular in Youtube and do a lot cover songs, but I happen to have a copy of their first original album 😉 They’ll be spending Valentine’s Day here in Manila and on the next day they’ll be in Davao City for another performance.
Recently, one of the Farro brothers, Josh, released their first music video under the band name, “Farro” (guess they ran out of band names.. lol). I wondered what kind of sound it would be knowing the two brothers who left Paramore both did punk rock. Well I was half-expecting that it would somehow be rockish.
But thank goodness it was not as I expected. Farro’s music style is not even close to what Josh Farro had done with Paramore, and to hear him singing in this track is another bonus. I’ve learned that Josh is not particularly fond of singing, but I personally think that he could use this hidden talent a bit more. He has a lot of room for improvement in the vocal department based on his latest single with Farro, but other than that, his singing ability was better than I imagined. Check out their music video below:
What’s even more surprising to me is Zac’s band, HalfNoise. And he’s the VOCALIST. . OMG. They released some videos a couple of months before, but it wasn’t until a while ago that I saw it. Upon hearing it, Coldplay instantly came into my mind. It definitely screams INDIE.
I just love how they all look so passionate in this video.
While I’m very sad that they’re no longer with Paramore, at least now they get to express their artistry in their own ways.
This song made me think of checking out Paramore’s latest music. Since the Farro brothers exited the band, I’ve been pretty skeptic about their music direction. So hearing this news of having their first collaboration with non-other than Joy Williams (previously from the The Civil Wars, and Hayley’s mentor/long-time friend before she became Paramore’s vocalist) for the deluxe version of their self-titled album made me curious about how their music sounds today.
