A Little Bit of Lovin, Zia Quizon's Sophomore Release

11:47:00 PM

One of Kwento Ni Toto's favorite voice, yup it's none other than Zia Quizon.  She is one of the many Pinoy Singers that I love to listen.  Grateful and thankful that I was given a chance to see and hear her sing in person.  She looks more likely of her mother in person.

Her first album was great and that's why I was eager to hear more from her.   The first album launch was the propeller that shoots her right on top by balancing the sound of jazzy and folky voice.  She indeed prove herself that she could breath life to the OPM industry.   So, now she's back with her sophomore album to entice more Pinoy listener to enjoy more of the OPM.  Completing her track are eight original cuts including Zia's own compositions and two classic revivals.  Her album is released under PolyEast Records.

Meet The New Acoustic Pop Balladeer, TJ Monterde

9:31:00 PM

Kwento Ni Toto readers would possibly ask ‘Who is TJ Monterde?’ Especially once they’ve read the title of this post. For some who have been hearing and seeing TJ Monterde, he is no stranger to them but for the others who first heard his name and his music he is indeed a stranger in the music scene. Personally, this is the first time that Kwento Ni Toto has met him and was able to jam with him as well. Thanks to PolyEast Records for having a Bloggers’ Event with TJ Monterde.

So, Who’s TJ Monterde? To start with TJ Monterde is one of the known disc jockey or DJ in Cagayan de Oro then later on became a TV host of ABS-CBN’s regional show and then became a Youtube-born balladeer in which proves that he has some good entertainment package to offer. Although Monterde sang a bit in several shows in CDO and no matter how diligent his efforts during his radio stint, he has never been able to translate his command of language into songwriting and able to use social media to his advantage.

8:06:00 PM

I first featured ZENDEE here in Kwento Ni Toto last December in which she shared her experiences being a "random girl" into a "runaway single".  Yup! She was able to make herself known to many through her voice and just like her idol, she was able to step into the land of promise, the USA where she was guessed in one of the talk shows, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 

Now, here's another new to her as she proudly announced the release of her debut album entitled "I BELIEVE" under Warner Music Philippines.  This is a nine-track album that features six different original compositions and three cover songs.  As expected, in which I first heard the song last year "RUNAWAY" was one of the original compositions which was created by known song writer Andrew Fromm, who also did some songs of The Backstreet Boys, NSync and K-ci & Jojo.  Other composers are Matt Bronleewe, Jordan Pruitt, and Tyler Hayes.

Have you watch Daddy DiDoDu?  Well, if you do, you'll definitely find the resemblance of who the lady on cover of the album LoveZone.  She's one of those little princesses of Vic Sotto in the sitcom.  The sitcom lasted for seven years so by now you've already remember who she was.  

If you're still in the blank mood, well, the lady is none other than the little Duday in the sitcom.  That little cutie is no longer little, she have grown now and taking the name Isabelle De Leon in the music industry.  Yup, she's into music and her genre is somewhat uncommon because she's more into rock just like Yeng Constantino but on a different league.
