Alternative rock band Wickermoss reunites with AltG Records

Wickermoss, the Filipino alternative rock band, is making a return to their roots as they reunite with AltG Records after 18 years. Founded by Reiman Gesmundo (guitars) and Roger Alcantara (bass), Wickermoss captured the hearts of their fans with their melancholic sound with an eclectic mix of various influences such as pop, folk, jazz, and progressive rock. The band’s breakthrough album “Falling Leaves,” originally released under AltG Records, contains noteworthy tracks such as “Buwan,” “Falling Leaves,” and “Letters.”

This deeply resonated with their audience because of the raw emotions that came with their music. In 2019, Wickermoss emerged from their hiatus, driven by a shared determination to delve into a treasure trove of unreleased songs. With this emergence, they also introduced their new members: Allen Lucas (vocals and acoustic guitar), Rigil Borromeo (guitars), and Karmi Santiago (drums). Presenting their latest offering, “Babalik,” the band reaffirms their fondness for transforming their emotions into songs.

The single, written by Gesmundo, navigates the complexities of pain, anger, and the intricate aftermath of heartbreak. It delivers a candid portrayal of the emotional journey that follows heartbreak. “I created the song during the lockdown when I joined a songwriting workshop online. That’s the song that came out, and we played around with it as a band until it was completed. I also thought of doing something different this time because most heartbreak songs are about letting go and hoping that the other person is happy. ‘Babalik’ is more about the feelings of anger and hurt and the genuine emotions a person feels following a heartbreak,” says Gesmundo.

The reunion of Wickermoss with AltG Records marks a wonderful homecoming for the band. “Returning to AltG Records feels like a homecoming. The label’s support not only fuels our creativity but also reminds us of our purpose as musicians. We simply want people to relate to our music. We listen to music to feel that someone understands, to see that there are also others who go through what we are experiencing. Music is a companion, and we want to be our listeners’ companion,” shares Alcantara.

Catch Wickermoss and their new single under AltG records, “Babalik,” streaming this August 25 on digital platforms worldwide. For more information, visit

OPM hitmaker Freestyle to celebrate 25 years of music at Music Museum on May 20

After numerous sold-out concerts since the relaunching of Freestyle with original frontman and songwriter Top Suzara last year, the iconic OPM band is set to take the big stage with a 25th anniversary concert happening on May 20, 2023 at the Music Museum.

Entitled “Giving It All This Time”, the concert invites the audience to journey through 25 years of Freestyle’s music and officially mark a new chapter of the band with the all-male cast of Ian Tan, Lerod Cailao, Bouy Manalo, and IJ Garcia joining Suzara.

“This is my 25th year in the industry and this show will, one, be the first official show in a concert setting where we will celebrate with all original songs, and, two, be the resurgence of Freestyle as we make good on the promise to continue together where I left off many years ago, when writing and sharing original songs was what drove us. This concert will be a story-telling journey through songs,” explains Suzara.

With hit songs such as “Before I Let You Go”, “So Slow”, “This Time”, “Till I Found You”, “Para Sayo”, their rendition of “Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang?”, and “Once In A Lifetime”, Freestyle intends to bring its unique brand of music to a bigger stage at the Music Museum in San Juan, Metro Manila on May 20 to welcome more fans after a successful string of concerts from last year.

“The past few months have been awesome. The fans really missed Freestyle especially with Top as part of the band. Most of the venues that we’ve performed in were sold out – which we’re so thankful for,” shares Garcia, who performs as keyboardist and music director.

Meanwhile, Freestyle drummer Cailao recounts the excitement of fans who have even booked flights from provinces or from overseas to watch the gigs.

“It’s amazing to see the supporters of Freestyle really showing support for the band. When they hear Top’s voice and their all-time favorite songs, you can really feel their excitement and emotions pouring out. It’s very touching, and it inspires us to work harder to do great shows every night,” said Cailao.

“I believe the top hit songs of Freestyle – “This Time” and “Before I Let You Go” – still touch the audience up to this point. These iconic songs trigger nostalgia. It is a good thing Freestyle music remained to be aired, used in several movies, and has reached a greater demographic,” shares bassist Tan.

Manalo, who performs as guitarist and has been an avid fan of the band, shares that playing with Freestyle is a dream come true, saying, “As a new band member of Freestyle, I’m still overwhelmed with everything. I still pinch myself at every show we do.”

Following the relaunch of the band in October 2022, Freestyle has also been busy sharing new music with audiences.

“The first new song we released is called “Maybe”, a song that talks of what ifs and second chances. We’ve included this song in most of our live gigs and shows and so far people have been receiving it very well,” shares Garcia.

Frontman Suzara has also hinted at future performances and releases in the pipeline, including concert tours around the Philippines and abroad and more new songs Freestyle fans can enjoy.

With this new and exciting chapter in Freestyle’s journey, the band assures its audience that it will continue to stay true to its distinct brand of original Filipino music telling honest and relevant stories that hit close to the heart.

“We’re surprised to see so many younger people appreciating the songs even if they hadn’t been born yet when these became popular. It goes to show how timeless Freestyle’s brand of music is. It spans generations,” says Cailao.

Tickets to “Giving It All This Time” on May 20, 2023 (Saturday) at the Music Museum are available on TicketWorld and Music Museum. For reservations, please text or call PPMPI at 09285106000.

Tunecore inks partnership with MINT College

In the Philippines, musicians and singers can be found anywhere. What sets them apart is that such talent is not only ingrained in them from birth, but also because Filipinos, as a culture, are in love with music.

As artists work to find success, the rise of digital music services has helped democratize the music industry, providing more opportunities for these artists to be heard and find their fans. TuneCore, the leading development partner for self-releasing artists—owned by Believe, one of the world’s leading digital music companies—aims to provide access to music distribution services for independent artists at all stages of their careers, helping to further reduce industry gatekeeping, and ensure self-releasing artists can get their music out into the world. Their latest endeavor to support the next generation of Filipino music and music creators is a monumental partnership with Mint College, the only school in the Philippines offering a degree in Music Business.

The new partnership between TuneCore and Mint College serves both companies’ goals of expanding educational programs for creators and facilitating opportunities for student musicians to pursue careers in music. As the leading creative school offering programs such as Music Business, Multimedia, and Film, Mint provides students with a solid foundation on which to build their careers. TuneCore enhances the student experience by exposing them to real world wisdom via lectures and workshops led by industry experts. This will also allow them to flex their musical muscles under the guidance of people who have not only ridden the waves of the music industry, but who have helped shape it as well.

Mint College’s Executive Vice President Hendrik Kiamzon commented, “We already have a lot of advantages, given the kind of education our students have from their professors coming from the music business industry. The partnership with TuneCore is just one more thing that legitimizes our cross-disciplinary approach.”

This alliance also addresses one of the bigger challenges facing aspiring musicians: catching that crucial first break. “One of our missions is to do our part to drive emerging markets to maturity across the region.  By partnering with Mint College, we aim to bridge the gap between aspiring student musicians and the music industry,” explains TuneCore’s head for Southeast Asia, Cyrus Chen on what they bring to the table. “We will provide networking and performance opportunities, mentorship, and workshops for the students, among many other initiatives.” This is a testament to TuneCore’s mission in providing the most innovative and expansive suite of digital music services to artists at all stages of their careers around the world.

The partnership between TuneCore and Mint College was signed, sealed, and delivered at a ceremonial signing at Mint’s new satellite campus in Ortigas. Cyrus was joined by Believe’s Country Head for the Philippines, Georgette Tengco, while Kiamzon was joined by Mint College’s Frankie Endriga, Board Director, and Mony Romana, Program Head of Marketing. This formalized an initiative that is potentially lifechanging for many student musicians.

Tengco commented, “Believe’s mission is to develop independent artists in the digital world via the solutions they need to grow their audience at every stage of their career. Arming student musicians with the right tools from the very start, while helping ensure that they are free to do what they are passionate about. Simultaneously, we open doors to opportunities that were previously only available to professional musicians. This partnership aims to do all that for the students of Mint College. The combined forces of Believe, TuneCore, and Mint will allow for a greater network to bring these aspiring talents closer to their dreams and ambitions in the music industry.”

This initiative of TuneCore follows on the heels of innovative programs that they have recently launched in support of self-releasing artists. The first is the Unlimited Release plan, which allows artists the greatest flexibility in releasing music at an affordable price. while refining their sound. This is followed closely by the introduction of GCash as a payment method on the platform as part of TuneCore’s localization efforts for the Philippines. Lastly, they recently presented their latest feature launch – Splits.

TuneCore takes into account the importance of collaboration in making music. This is, oftentimes, the key ingredient in making a hit record. At the same time, this can also lead to discord among the collaborators when it comes time to divide royalty splits. The Splits feature introduces an efficient solution to this, allowing the artists to input royalty percentages for each collaborator, and providing automatic payouts along with comprehensive payout details. Artists are able to easily edit their splits at any time, adding or removing collaborators, and updating percentages. This will allow more time to focus on their music. Andreea Gleeson, Chief Executive Officer, TuneCore, explained further, “Our goal is to make our artists’ lives easier so that they can focus on making music. For years, self-releasing artists at all stages of their careers have been required to take on additional support roles to sustain their artistic endeavors. By offering splits, TuneCore artists can now spend less time being accountants and more time making great music.” 

From every stage in an artist’s journey, TuneCore, alongside Believe, hopes to bring creativity in music to fruition. Arming the next generation of Filipino artists with a solid educational foundation, via the Mint College partnership, is what will redefine and reshape how the future of the industry will look. With ample support via innovative tools and programs, there is nothing but greatness ahead for these artists.

USA Basketball Icon Carmelo Anthony named Global Ambassador for FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023

USA superstar and 10-time NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony has become a FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Global Ambassador, with the event tipping off on August 25 in the Philippines, Japan and Indonesia.

Joining the recently announced Argentine superstar, Luis Scola, and Spain legend Pau Gasol as Global Ambassadors, Carmelo Anthony will help promote the World Cup and take part in activities in the buildup to FIBA’s flagship men’s competition.

“I’ve proudly represented the USA on the world’s largest stages, and the World Cup is the toughest competition in international basketball,” Carmelo said. “It’s all about striking a perfect balance of personnel, talent and having that great chemistry. I’m looking forward to supporting all the players at the World Cup this year and celebrating the sport on a global scale.”

A three-time Olympic gold medalist, a select on the NBA 75 th Anniversary Team, and currently ranked Top 10 on the NBA All-Time Scoring List, Carmelo has led a storied career. At the 2006 World Cup in Japan, Carmelo put on a dynamic, high-scoring display when he led the American team to the podium with a third-place finish and claimed a spot in the All-Star Five.

He averaged 19.9 points per game and poured in 35 of the USA’s points in their come-from-behind 94-85 triumph over Italy in the Group Phase. That performance triggered a three-game run, all-American wins, in which Carmelo buried 12 of 20 attempts from three-point range. Even in their only loss in the competition, a 101-95 Semi-Final defeat to Greece, Carmelo had a game-high 27 points.

The Olympic stage was also where Carmelo shone for the USA as he helped the national team to three undefeated gold medal runs in 2008, 2012 and 2016, and also a bronze medal in 2004.In the U.S. Olympic men’s career record book, he currently is second in the all-time scoring list with 336 points scored, 113 field goals made, 262 field goals attempted, 125 rebounds, 139 3-point field goals attempted, and 71 free throws attempted. Carmelo is also second all-time in three-point field goals made with 57.

Bursting onto the scene in 2004 at the Athens Olympic Games at age 20, playing in the 2006 World Cup, and then winning the FIBA AmeriCup in 2007, Carmelo is assured of legendary status in the USA and in international basketball due to his career longevity, prolific scoring, and strong leadership qualities.

Carmelo will be in Manila on February 24 for the Philippines vs. Lebanon World Cup qualifier game of Window 6, soaking up the atmosphere that the Philippines is famous for when it comes to basketball.
