KAREN REYES, THE JOLOGS
Former Pinoy Big Brother housemate, Karen Reyes became known as the “Hagikgik Chic ng Mindoro.” Her bubbly personality won the audience’s hearts and eventually she landed in “PBB Teen Edition’s” Big 4. When she first entered the world of show business, Karen admitted she felt intimidate because she considered herself “jologs.” However, after taking personality development courses she is now game for anything. The young lady considers herself a straightforward person—honesty, for her, is still the best policy. She looks for honesty in everything, even in music, that is why there is no wonder why she became a fan of Silent Sanctuary—whose songs she consider she can relate to the most. The ‘kalog’ in her emerges because of watching romantic-comedy movies. She also aspires to work with her ultimate idol John Lloyd Cruz.

SHEY BUSTAMANTE, THE SONGWRITER

Shey does not know where she got her gift for music but her early memories of being musically inclined started when she was in grade school. Shey has already 3 compositions and she realized that good music must have good lyrics—lyrics that people can relate to. For Shey, it’s the words that touch her rather than the melody. When she drives, she listens to music—almost everything that she does is accompanied by music. On the other hand, Shey is also a fitness buff. In fact, this songwriter works out every day to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
