I was asked to help promote the 2nd National Elements Singing and Songwriting Camp last Saturday, and I just said yes out of sheer gratitude for what the camp has helped me experience and learn. What I did not know was that the promotion was really special, I will be playing with no less than the super talented main man of South Border – Mr. Jay Durias. He is a very popular musician, singer, songwriter and was lately a musical director for a noon time TV show.
When I found out that he will come with me for the radio guestings, at first I didn’t think we would jam, I thought they’d let me play something and then let Jay play something after the interviews and promo spiels. But while he was setting up at our first radio guesting (Dig Radio), he asked if we would jam, and ofcourse I obliged! And that was a very inspiring spur of the moment jam, he played keys on my song, and I backed him up on his song. I just realized how much of a technical and emotional difference he has over me, but that only fired me up to play and hopefully add something nice to his already beautiful music.
The best part of all this is that we also jammed on the 2nd Radio station which was Jam 88.3. Too bad that Noel Cabangon had to leave – if not, I probably would have had the chance to also back him up! All in all it was such a wonderful and uplifting experience. Hope I get more opportunities like this in the future!
