We spent the afternoon yesterday with the lovely Jessica Sanchez who is back in town to lead the New Year countdown at the Eastwood City on December 31. Joining her at the grand dazzling get-together are Bamboo, Mitoy Yonting with his band Draybers, Up Dharma Down, South Border, and DJ Ace Ramos, with VJ Joyce Pring and radio host Sam YG.

The extremely talented young singer had actually started her career when she was 10 years-old as she joined the first season of America's Got Talent and had failed to go on to the finals but despite this she had continued on singing at a number of huge events in the US and had released a couple of singles too before joining the American Idol which had gained her 1st runner up spot and international recognition.

Sanchez shared to us how her year has been with highs and lows. Her highs being traveling, performing, her album release and lows being her goals not being reached. We talked about how her goals not being reached is okay since at her young age, she can still work on them in the coming years. Next thing we talked about was New Year Resolutions since we are indeed starting a new year in less than a day. "My New Year Resolutions this year would be one, is to learn Tagalog, and second one is learn how to drive."

Philippines, Get Ready for Capital Cities

Words by Kix Suarez

Craigslist (styled craigslist) is a classified advertisements website with sections devoted to jobs, housing,personals, for sale, items wanted, services, community, gigs, résumés, and discussion forums.  The site is not exactly geared towards musicians but we’ve got to thank the guys behind the site for giving us the band Capital Cities. Who would’ve known Craiglist was a good place to look to to start a band? Los Angeles indie electro unit Capital Cities did just that. The group first came together as a duo of composers/songwriters Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian.
