ABS-CBN’s record label Star Music reveals the fresh music offerings of its new artists — the fast-rising Agsunta band, actor JC Santos, acoustic singer Migz Haleco, singing duo Miko and Gab, and Filipino-Japanese artist Natsumi Saito.
Agsunta, the band that made waves among Filipino millennials online, finally introduced its own music through the much-awaited, self-titled debut album with acoustic and soft melodic rock tunes led by its carrier single “Di Ba Halata.”
Composed of Jireh Singson, Mikel Arevalo, Josh Planas, and Stephen Arevalo, the group has several viral videos on YouTube and Facebook, particularly from the Agsunta Song Request webisodes featuring unique OPM versions, as well as from the Agsunta Jam Sessions uploads of its jamming activities with popular musicians.
“’Til I Met You” actor JC, who just signed a recording deal with Star Music, also released his first single “Pwede Naman,” composed by Gabriel Tagadtad and produced by Kiko Salazar. The “Mr. and Mrs. Cruz” leading man, who first ventured into theater performances before acting in movies and TV, will also be launching his self-titled, debut album on February 18 (Sunday) at Robinsons Place Manila.
Miko Juarez and Gabriel Umali or more popularly known as Miko and Gab, the singing group behind the single “Hugot,” have likewise joined Star Music as the record label’s featured singing tandem.
The two met as contestants in the show “Pinoy Boyband Superstar” in 2016 and eventually became friends doing frequent covers, which gave them opportunity to discover that their voices sound good together. Asian Artists Agency led by King of Talk Boy Abunda manages the career of Miko and Gab.
Also promoting his latest single under Star Music is acoustic bae Migz who officially launched the track “’Pag Ika’y Nagmahal” two weeks ago.
The young lad who was formerly part of the duo Migz and Maya, was the interpreter of “Bes,” one of the song finalists in Himig Handog 2017. He is currently part of “ASAP’s” Jambayan.
“The Voice Kids” season 1 contestant Natsumi of Camp Kawayan, meanwhile, launched her self-titled debut album comprised of six tracks. Her carrier single, “Para Lang Sa’yo,” came out in October.
According to the young singer’s official Facebook page, her “Natsumi” album will also be available in Japan very soon.
Aside from their new offerings, Migz and the Agsunta band will have a special Valentines concert produced by Star Events happening on February 15 (Thursday) dubbed “ValenTimes 2” with special guest Iñigo Pascual.
