Anyway, I was on my way to Makati for a meeting and I managed to squeeze in some time for Miguel Escueta's debut album, "I am M.E." at Redbox, Greenbelt. I was late, but I caught Miguel's first song "Sa Pagkawala". It piqued my interest and Jay whispered that Miguel is from Ateneo (later on I found out that he graduated with a degree in Business Management major in Communications Technology). Miguel's songs sounded so foreign especially when he sang "Take Me There" and "Falling Away". According to him his musical influences include Coldplay, Lifehouse and Parokya ni Edgar - "Harana" being the first guitar song he learned how to play at the age of 12.
(Bottom L-R): of course! photo opt!, Miguel Escueta being interviewed
And notice the writing on Miguel's hand, "Vivite Somnia!" which he said means "Live your dreams".
Thanks to MCA Music Inc., it's my first time to get a free album! And Mossimo for the cap which shielded me from the hot sun when I walked to my next appointment.
Goodness! I think I just sounded like a teener! Anyway, M.E., you've just made a fan.
Here are some videos I took:
Take Me There
Falling Away (carrier single)
