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

Hi! I’m Peter B from Quezon City, Philippines. My music style is a mix of Original Pilipino Music (OPM) and foreign music, as described by fellow songwriters and gig audiences. I always listen to classical music, pop-rock, and local songs.

I appreciate all kinds of music and get inspiration from the diverse songs I listen to. When I write songs, I always want to offer something new.

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

Released on March 27, 2023. “Lumalayo” was created during a jamming session with my high school buddy. We drafted the song that afternoon. Then, I completed the lyrics and story about being ‘friend-zoned.’ The expressive intro and verse sounded like our familiar OPM songs, which motivated me to complete the song.

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

My vision is to express a person’s sadness after confessing love to a friend.

It is a common dilemma at one point in our lives. I believe this song will connect deeply to others. It’s one of the reasons why I love to create music—to share a message and connect with people.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?

The start of the verse after the first chorus is my favorite. The line tugs at the heart even if you haven’t experienced that scenario.

Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? 

I’ll be releasing a 7 to a 9-track album this April. I’m also looking forward to playing on gigs and promoting my songs once it’s uploaded.
