Combining their passion for music, they create songs to satisfy every listener’s emotions. They strive for the best to showcase their full potential as musicians and share their unique sounds with the world.

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

According to Glenn Salundaguit,
songwriter of “Mayla,”
the song is dedicated to his wife.

Released on November 22, 2022. I wrote this as a gift to my wife on our 15th anniversary. We had our renewal of vows, and “Mayla” is the song used for the SDE (same day edit) video.

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

Love unconditionally like our Creator.
You don’t base it on what someone does for you in return. You simply love them and want nothing more than their happiness.

What is your favorite part of the song?

Tanging ikaw ang nagbibigay pag-asa
Ikaw lang ang nag-iisa at wala ng nanaisin pa
Tanging ikaw ang buhay ko aking sinta
Noon, ngayon at kailanma’y walang ng iibigin
Tanging ikaw

The chorus is our favorite part because this is my promise to my wife—a love for a lifetime.

Anything else we should know about? Future releases? 

We are working on our next single for release in February.
