Greetings and salutations internet,
The spring semester is officially over and I'm enjoying an awesome start to summer! To highlight, during the weekend back home from my recent trip, I went right into performing at the Filipino Fiesta at Kapiolani Park here in Honolulu. It was nice to have a sort of "homecoming" performance in front of my fellow pinoys, including a little more exposure into the local community. The next week, my cousin and her friends came to visit from Washington and we spent the week driving around the island, going to the beach, BBQ'ing, and getting dope bottle service at The Republik (one of the big clubs on Oahu) for the White Rabbit event (an LGBT event).
However, as most of my "indie" peeps know, the independent grind is not always fun and games. Like most artists, I still have to work my "regular" jobs, which include helping out at my school and at church. Regardless, both of those communities honestly show a lot of support for me in and outside the office. I commend them greatly for being patient and supportive towards my dreams. I even got to recite one of my poems at St. Peter's Potluck Dinner and Variety Show this passed Sunday.
More recently, I was interviewed on the KNDI Radio Station (AM 1270 Honolulu) last night during the open air slot. Thanks to Bryan Munoz aka DJ Firecracker for the nice interview! I will definitely be on his show again in a few more weeks during the Friday rush hour, so that I can get more exposure and reach a wider local audience. If you're an aspiring artist like myself, especially if you live in the Honolulu area, I highly suggest reaching out to Bryan to get some airplay on your tracks and probably setting up a studio interview as well. He's an easy guy to talk to and always looking for new talent to feature! Feel free to email me or fill out the contact form on the homepage for more information!
