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.

Nyoy Volante Continues With His Journey With His New Album TULOY PARIN

7:38:00 AM

One of Kwento Ni toto's favorite songs are OPM's.  It brings good memories and unforgettable moments.  It is the life blood of my past experiences and learning in life.

Nyoy volante is back, singing around and pulling those strings of his guitar and it is no doubt that the spirit of Original Pilipino Music is still alive and kicking.  We all know Nyoy Volante for being the mellow when he sings and everyone credits him for being such a remarkable acoustic artist that's why he was able to have the title "King of Acoustic Pop".  Now that he has released a new album under MCA Music it has become more apparent that with his songwriting and artistic skills, he really had brought in a significant contribution into making OPM alive and kicking today.

ZENDEE's Debut Album "I BELIEVE"

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.

LoveZone, Isabelle De Leon's Album

7:15:00 AM

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.

Young JV is Doing It Big

11:15:00 AM

Just recently, some bloggers were able to interview Young JV or in real life Eduardo JV Arancillo Kapunan III about his entry for the MYX Music Awards. He's a softspoken guy but abrupt and good in answering the questions that the bloggers shoot at him.
Right now Young JV is into school and his juggling it with his career as a singer and an actor.  For all the ladies out there sorry for now because Young JV is into a dating status with someone whom he would not disclose.  Anyway who ever that girl is she's indeed lucky.

Jason Fernandez in Panimula, Former Rivermaya Frontman

8:00:00 PM

For Jason Fernandez, leaving Rivermaya is one of the most difficult decisions he has made in his lifetime. The said step tested not only his faith, but also his courage to continue his passion for music. Luckily, he has supportive friends and colleagues to encourage him to continue doing what he is destined to do – sing, make music and entertain.

Jason’s new album Panimula is an emotional, musical testimony to his challenging, yet fulfilling journey as a musician.

Produced by Jason and with the support of his new band Sta. Maria, Panimula, under Ivory Music and Video, boasts of having six tracks and one bonus track.

“I have been working on this album for the past year, and I am very proud with how everything turned out,” says Jason. “The wait is definitely worth it. The album follows my journey as a musician.”

When asked what the public can expect from the album, Jason quips that its sound will show his musical influences, including his former band Rivermaya.

“It is undeniable that Rivermaya and its music made me evolve not just as a musician, but also as a human being. The group has taught me a lot, and this album will prove that,” says Jason. “I will forever be grateful to Rivermaya for the opportunity and the lessons that they have imparted to me.”

The album contains songs about hope, lost love, life, and inspirations.

The album’s first single, the anthemic Maria challenges the listeners to rethink their ways and further highlights the versatility of Jason’s vocals.

Panimula also includes a collaboration between Jason and Pop-rock Princess Yeng Constantino in the sweeping ballad Panaginip.
