Chit Chat with Paolo Santos

Image
Acoustic Sensation Paolo Santos talks about his music, lifestyle and anything under the sun.

I got a chance to talk with Paolo Santos. It brought so many memories since I had been watching some of his acoustic gigs during the peak of his career. Paolo Santos is releasing his new album. And glad to know that he was very comfortable making this album because James Taylor is one of his best musical influence. The tracks from his album was handpicked by himself; extremely excited on the preparation of the album until the launching day.



Question: How was the response of younger audience with regards to your music? 

Paolo Santos: I was invited to some events like proms and graduation parties. So I think meron na, in this particular aspect, the music on my album is old but for the younger generation we also played top songs during our gigs, its really different when you watch in a bar...sana dumami ang shows so that you can comfortably listen to our songs.

From its title, you were wondering why he chooses James Taylor Songs on his new album? I've found out that James Taylor is his biggest influence in music. As he commended on James Taylor: Such an amazing songwriter, his approach to his music is very simple --but it goes straight to your heart.

On his new album, entitled "How Sweet it is" also includes some of our all time favorites - Wandering, Sweet Baby James, Don't Let me be lonely tonight. And his carrier single, Only One.

Just like a kid: Hijo

Image
Live goes on after the Bamboo and his band broke up. Today, Nathan Azarcon, Ira Cruz and Vic Mercado formed a band called 'Hijo.'


Since I got confused on the band's arrangements, here it is: Nathan is also doing the vocals (aside from playing bass), Ira and Vic will do the same thing (guitars and drums). Adding up to the spice are Radioactive Sago Project's Junji Lerma on guitars and Wowee Posadas on keyboards.

Hijo released an EP entitled "Slow Rock Vol 1/2" which they tag as "Kung Fu Rock"

“It is slow rock... and we wanted a funny title for it. It’s so dark as it is,” Nathan said.

Compared to their previous experience with their former bands, it was a different recording process for the group especially for Nathan, Ira and Vic.

“Working with the band is just amazing. This is the first time the three of us recorded most of our parts separately. We already had a formula for laying down tracks but this time we pushed ourselves and went the opposite way. I…

Keds: The Original Sneaker

Image
I remembered that our family is a great fan of Keds. And still trending! A must have to those who love wearing sneakers and remain casual. You can check out who was seen lately wearing Keds on the Hollywood scene. Well, simplicity is still the best.

In 1916, Keds created an American Classic: the first shoe with a soft rubber sole, so comfortable & quiet you could "sneak" up on anyone. This original sneaker, called the “Champion” has remained a style icon for almost 100 years. Worn by legends Paul Newman, Audrey Hepburn, The Ramones, John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, and consistently celebrated by Vogue, Elle and GQ, Keds continues to attract fashion designers, stylists and top editors in the industry with their classic, authentic style.

Through all the fashion trends of the century, Keds hasn’t changed much since they were created. As a matter of fact, the Keds “Champion” sneaker has remained essentially unchanged for more than half a century! It has become a fashi…

Lifestyle Network brings Acoustic Alchemy Live in Manila

Premier lifestyle channel Lifestyle Network will once again partake in the annual Philippine International Jazz and Arts Festival (PI Jazzfest), as it brings renowed British contemporary jazz band Acoustic Alchemy and other world class musicians in an event dubbed as "ABS-CBN Gala" on February 24, 6pm at the Newport Performing Arts Theatre, Resorts World Manila.

For nearly 25 years, Acoustic Alchemy has pushed the limits of the acoustic guitar's potential by embracing a spectrum of musical styles, ranging from straight-ahead jazz to folk to rock to world music and beyond. In the two and a half decades since their earliest recordings - despite a tragic setback in the late 1990s and the inherent challenges of the 21st century music industry - the group assmbled and sustained a vast and loyal following that stretches well beyond their UK origins.

"For a lot of people, instrumental is just a sound that plays in the background," says Carmichael. "But we put a lot…

Naturally cooked with vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, black pepper and bay leaf - this dish is easy to prepare. You can use pork or chicken even a combination of both. Adobo has been developed and served with so many adaptation. Even provinces have their own style of cooking.

Last Saturday, I was introduced to the newest branch of Adobo Connection (known for its Adobo varieties) in SM Sta Mesa and I've found out that they served several Adobo Dishes like: Modern Adobo, Mestizang Adobo, Adobo Sa Gata, Mama's Adobo, Kuya's Adobo and so much more.

“Beyond the regular expected searches during Valentine’s Day for gifts, flowers and dining places, Yahoo! Search Trends observed interesting trends related to ‘famous quotes’ and ‘proposals/declaration of love’ by the Filipinos”, said Henryl Moreno, Manager, Editorial for Search & Platforms in Southeast Asia.

Press Release

Every Filipino dreams of getting a brand new car. The latest car model, the smoothest ride, the best brand – car ownership for Filipinos is the ultimate symbol that they’ve got it made. But dream cars don’t always come cheap and a buyer has to understand that apart from the actual cost of the car, one still has to be prepared to shell out money for additional expenses like chattel mortgage fees, compulsory third party liability (CTPL) and comprehensive car insurance; then prior to driving a brand new car out of the showroom, its registration should be processed – all necessities for a car owner.

It is actually my THIRD TIME to attend this huge festivity wherein you can only see them during the love month (February). My second visit was posted on my blog (read it here), we captured the glowing of the balloons and stayed overnight in a hostel.

Yes, from the meeting place (manila) until we left Clark (we shared laughters, jokes and endless stories).

San Fernando, Pampanga was our first destination. Bloopers while we rode the wrong bus. Blame it to the conductors when we asked if the bus will be st…
