SILENT SANCTUARY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BUMALIK KA NA SA ‘KIN”

Silent Sanctuary_Bumalik Ka Na Sa Akin single cover 1400x1400

[SOURCE: Ivory Music And Video 2013 APR 17] — Every one of us has had his share of ecstasy and hurt brought about by that desire to be with someone.  As they say, to love and to be loved gives the deepest of joys and at the same time, the saddest of pains.

Silent Sanctuary sings about this bittersweet experience, and more.  Writing based on their own encounters with love and thoughts of their experiences, their sound became more distinct as they fuse rock and classical instruments.  The cello and violin, together with the guitar, and the bass and drums reverberates the stories of ex-lovers, and hopeless romantics, along with other stories we know of love.  The guys of Silent Sanctuary never expected that their songs will be the anthem of many.

Early in their musical career back at 2001, they started out with Goo Goo Doll songs as their main repertoire.  Eventually, they started writing their own materials.  The band went through line-up changes at the same time as finding their way around the scene and constantly improving and perfecting their craft.

Silent Sanctuary landed a record deal 2006 and released two full-length studio albums – Fuschiang Pag-ibig and Mistaken for Granted; both spawned hits, which dominated radio, TV, online and various music charts, “Ikaw Lamang”, “Kundiman”, “Summer Song”, “Hiling”, “Hay Naku”, among others.  Unreleased singles “14”, “Kismet”, and “Ingat Ka” received as much following as the released singles and are most requested during live performances and gigs.

Now with their new home label, Ivory Music and Video, the band is set to release an EP album this June 2013. “Bumalik Ka Na Sa ‘Kin” the upcoming EP’s carrier single, gives us a sneak peak of what’s in-store for us.  This upbeat pop rock song with a chorus that will leave you subconsciously humming because the melody and words stuck in your head, expresses an earnest desire to get back together with a significant other.

Silent Sanctuary continues to deliver their signature “classical music meets rock music” sound with this brand new single. Check out the preview below:

To further her role as an activist, Cyndi founded the True Colors Fund in 2008.  The non-profit seeks to inspire and engage everyone, particularly the straight community, to become involved in the advancement of LGBT equality. The Fund recently launched the Give a Damn Campaign, an extensive and innovative online public education and awareness initiative.

INTRODUCING: HOT CHELLE RAE!

Source: www.hotchellerae.com
Before Hot Chelle Rae “fueled up the Jeep with bubbly elastifunk and breezy hip-hop swagger” (as Entertainment Weekly put it) with their brand new single “I Like It Like That,” the Nashville-based quartet scored a bonafide breakthrough smash hit over the last several months with “Tonight Tonight.”

Declared “one of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of the summer” by USA Today, “Tonight Tonight” crashed into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July like an unruly teenager, shot to No. 1 at Hot AC radio in September, was certified double-platinum in the U.S., and certified platinum in Canada and Australia. Meanwhile, its hilarious video (featuring a cameo by guitarist Nash Overstreet‟s brother, Glee‟s Chord Overstreet) has racked up nearly 30 million views online, energizing the group‟s active, devoted fan base. But it wasn’t until Jon Stewart sang a snippet of its chorus on The Daily Show that the band realized just how thoroughly “Tonight Tonight” had penetrated the mainstream.

“That was crazy,” recalls frontman Ryan Follese. “I was in my bunk on the bus when Jamie shouted, “Jon Stewart just sang our song!‟ I love The Daily Show so much, I couldn‟t believe it. The episode was airing again later in the night, so we stayed up to watch.” Adds Jamie: “I don‟t know if Jon Stewart even likes the song, but I don‟t care because it was so awesome. As long as he knows it, I am extremely happy.”

What’s not to like? With its once-heard-never purged melody, “la la la” refrain, and sly references
to Zach Galifinakis, the song is a shameless crowdpleaser. It has also been a game-changer for this
hard-working young band, which formed in 2005, released its debut album, the dance-rock oriented
Lovesick Electric, in 2009, and has been waiting for its break-out moment ever since. Hot Chelle Rae‟s
time has arrived with the band‟s new album, WHATEVER — an unstoppable fireball of radioready
tunes that finds them embracing who they really are: a band unabashedly in love with pop music.


Hot Chelle Rae began working on WHATEVER at the end 2010, traveling from Nashville to Los Angeles and New York for writing and recording sessions with various collaborators, including Emanuel Kiriakou (Jason Derulo, Selena Gomez), Evan Bogart (Adam Lambert, Rihanna), S*A*M & Sluggo (Boys Like Girls, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes) and rising star production trio Andrew Goldstein, Dan Book, and Alexei Misoul. They emerged with a clutch of fizzy sing-alongs, like the current single “I Like It Like That” (featuring hip-hop duo New Boyz and inspired by memories of crazy nights out in Nashville), quirky break-up song “Honestly,” be-yourself anthem “Beautiful Freaks,” fingersnapper “Radio,” as well as heartfelt tracks like “Keep You With Me” and “Why Don‟t You Love Me.”

Through it all, the band keeps the melodies sleek, the harmonies tight, and the performances solid on WHATEVER, whose title is a playfully ironic comment on the hard work that went into writing and recording it. “The hardest thing to do is write is a simple pop song,” Ryan says. Adds Nash: “I read something this songwriter Jim Collins once said that stuck with me. He said, „If you can’t write a melody on piano with one finger, then it’s too complex for anyone to latch on to.‟” The band took that idea to heart, but made sure the other elements in the songs could pull their weight. “One of my favorite things about pop music is, obviously, the simplicity of the melodies, but the underlying tracks have to be really entertaining for the song to be any good,” Ian says.

The elegant ease of the songs is something only a band with serious chops could pull off, and indeed, all four members of Hot Chelle Rae have considerable musical pedigrees: brothers Ryan and Jamie are sons of A-List Nashville songwriters Keith and Adrienne Follese, Nash is the son of five-time BMI songwriter of
the year, Paul Overstreet; and Ian’s dad Phil Keaggy is a Grammynominated guitarist and multiple Dove Award recipient. Says Ryan, “My dad is a talented writer with a lot of hits to his credit and he has helped teach Jamie and me how to write great songs.”

Now Hot Chelle Rae is ready to cash in the chips it‟s earned with the success of “Tonight Tonight” and “I Like It Like That.” “Those songs set the stage for WHATEVER,” Ryan says. “It‟s loaded with feel-good, windows-down tunes that people can relate to and that are fun to play live.” The band spent the summer on the road with We The Kings and the fall touring with The Script in the US, along with a handful of headlining European tour dates. In early 2012 they will headline a tour across the United States before heading to Australia for a March arena tour with Taylor Swift, where they are sure to win over even more new admirers. “Our fans are so loyal and engaged,” Nash says. “The most fun we have playing live is when they are excited and singing along. It‟s really energizing to have them instantly giving it back to you. It keeps us going and hyped to carry on.”
