1982067_649411345153745_524880018_nPalawan-based freelance singer MYK PEREZ or Don Michael Perez in real life surprised the public last year when he reached the final four of the first season of The Voice of the Philippines under the tutelage of singer-coach Bamboo Manalac.

Although he did not win the contest, his exceptional talent got him an exclusive recording contract with MCA Music and a debut album called MY ACOUSTIC.  The album features two original songs, FIX YOU which we first heard live during the first night of the Final battle of The Voice of the Philippines, and own composition HONEY UNDER THE MOON.  There are 11 tracks in the album which includes Myk’s cover of Easy (Lionel Richie), Two is Better Than One (Taylor Swift/Boys Like Girls), Why (Avril Lavigne), Clarity (John Mayer), Chasing Pavements (Adele), Give Me Love (Ed Sheeran), Baby I Love Your Way (Bob Marley), the carrier single Runaway (The Corrs) plus an unplugged version of Fix You.

Last Tuesday (March 18), I was able to talk to MYK PEREZ during an exclusive bloggers conference for his new album.  The 23 year old singer performed three songs from his album and some other requested tunes including the Beatles original ‘I Will’ which he dedicated to his mom Olive Viray Perez who was the first one who took notice of his talent in singing.

 

 

 

If you think MYK PEREZ sounds really awesome in the album and during his TV performances, wait till you hear him perform unplugged (no amps, no mic, just his voice and his guitar).  He’s very talented indeed.  I can’t wait to see him perform in his first major concert.

Myk described his music and his album as a fusion of different genre like RNB, Pop, Ballad, Soul and Reggae.  His major musical influences are John Mayer and Jason Mraz.

Myk also mentioned three things included in his wishlist right now:

  • An original sophomore album
  • A collaboration with Bamboo and Armi Milari of Up Dharma Down
  • To learn how to dance

Myk also revealed that he got a lot of advice from The Voice of the Philippines coaches Apl, Bamboo and Leah but not much from Sarah Geronimo.  But he quickly added that her presence is already enough because she inspires him.  He even mentioned Sarah’s name in the song Baby I Love Your Way.

MYK PEREZ will be at the following malls: SM Masinag (March 22), SM Rosales (March 23), SM Sucat (May 4) and SM Calamba (May 10).

MY ACOUSTIC, the debut album by Myk Perez, is now out in CDs under MCA Music and through digital downloads via spinnr.ph and iTunes.  For bookings and inquiries, contact Sammy Samaniego of MCA Music Artist Management at +632 9162504 local 107, +639178565174 and +639209682991.  For more  information and updates log on to the following sites: www.facebook.com/mcamusic, www.twitter.com/mykperez2 or www.twitter.com/mca_music.

Aside from the signed copy of MYK PEREZ’s album, I also got this cool headphone from spinnr.ph as a souvenir.
