Google Commercial!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Lots of things happening in 2014. One of which was the honor to create and record music for the 2014 Google Philippines OFW campaign. I worked on it in February with longtime bandmate Kevin Camia (when we were all part of the Bobby Banduria Band, with Kevin as Bobby Banduria). We created a very sweet original, that was changed over 10 times into what you hear in the commercial. Check it out here. What do you think?

I played the violin and Kevin played a zillion instruments. We also got to work with an amazing musician, Cyrus of Hot Karate, who was our sound genius.

As a freelance writer, writer of my creative work, and full-time mommy, what’s it like to leave to Los Angeles for 10 days to do this?!!! It was a treat to be stimulated so artistically again and given a lot of great feedback about the music I create. Music is never work to me. I was able to Facetime the little ones and Google+ video chat with them while at the studio and when I wasn’t working. This was the most spontaneous I’ve been in terms of travel and work. It couldn’t have been done if I didn’t have family to help take care of the kids while I was gone.

It was a blast and hopefully, I’ll get a chance to do it again. Or just play in another band or make my kids learn instruments so we can make a family band. Lol. Whichever comes first.
