Hi Prinsesani, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.

Hi, I am Prinsesani, a singer/songwriter from Palawan…

I started writing songs at the age of 10, joining songwriting competition at 14, won my champion song at 25 and produced songs at 26. I am in every inch an island girl hence, some of my songs were inspired by our paradise province. But when I got a lil bit older and experienced being human, I penned out honest emotions and turned it into a song.

Although, I started young in songwriting, I never stop learning

Hence, I attended workshops under Joey Ayala, Jim Paredes, Doc Mon del Rosario, Tito Cayamanda and Rannie Raymundo. I refuse to stop learning.

My goal is to write songs, express feelings and personify art and poetry in music— succinctly put—

I intend to write timeless songs
melodies that can last for a lifetime…
just like the waves of the sea kissing
the unfathomable sand.

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this song?

Mr. Presko isn’t a fictional character. He is real. The whole story of the song was real. He was a common friend. When we first met, I was amazed on how confident he was and not intimidated by my presence. It turned out, he really did not know I exist and too blinded by his pride that someone like me was attracted to him. Hence, I wrote the whole experience and tagging him as Mr. Presko.

What is your vision for this project? What lessons would you like to impart to your audience?

It is my first Spotify release. I am really grateful for Pinoy Online Radio for producing it and giving me an opportunity to be a Spotify artist. I just hope many people could hear it and say that they can relate to the song.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to
take a risk and never regret!
Not knowing what lies ahead is a great adventure.
Sometimes we just have to take the leap of faith.
Just like what I did in releasing this song.

Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? 

As of now, I am working on two songs that is to be released next year. but for the next days, I’ll be performing in the monthly celebration of Palawan Culture and Music, Pabilugon.
