LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Fresh, relatable, and truly remarkable!
Hi Joshua Clarin, welcome to LA Music Review! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
Hello LAMR! I’m Joshua Clarin, a singer-songwriter from Laguna, Philippines. I started singing when I was 6, and I discovered my gift in songwriting when I was 15. It was during pandemic that I really committed myself to pursue my passion for music.
Aside from having a gift of voice, I am more proud of myself when it comes to writing lyrics because it is my niche thing to do overall musically. For me, the lyrics is a vital part of the song. It sets the tone, signifies, express, and capture the listeners’ emotion.

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released on October 13, 2023. “I was listening to alternative rock and felt inspired to use that genre for my latest song, ‘Our Constellations’. The lyrics are straightforward and focus on the feeling of hopeless fading admiration for someone.
I wrote this song as a letter of apology to someone who genuinely liked me more than anything in her life. Unfortunately, I didn’t feel the same way for her. I used ‘constellations’ as a metaphor for our feelings not aligning.”
What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
We have to be honest in what we really feel. Unrequited love is hard, but I’m sure the right person will come at the right moment God prepared for us.
In terms of music production, creativity is somewhat hard to catch. You have to do your best to get it. I’m speaking generally because we all have to create something in our life. You have to release all the best within you if you’re making something because it’s going to be special to the person whom you’ll give.
What is your favorite part of this body of work?
The bridge part and it is the most fastest part of the song I’ve written. It is simply-stated too that’s what I love about it.
Future releases? Upcoming events?
I’m not currently working on anything specific, but I’m focusing on improving my musical persona. Music is a non-stop journey, and once you commit to it, there’s always something new to learn.
