Mabuhay! Here are some Green Apples…

Hello fabulous fan!

Thank you for stopping by my site.  I am very excited to share a fun cover I put together quickly using Cubase – all thanks to Yamaha and their amazing support for my music!

First let me explain why I decided to record a cover of Chantal Kreviazuk’s song, Green Apples.  I saw her perform on Sept 13th with her husband and OLP frontman aka my favourite music influence, Raine Maida.  This power couple has influenced my songwriting – in fact they helped start it by creating amazing songs of their own.  I used to sing and play Chantal’s songs over and over, getting better at my improvising and singing with her incredible range. (And, OLP’s Superman’s Dead was the first song I taught myself on guitar!) Green Apples has been one of my favourite songs by the songstress, such beautiful words and melody.  Thank you Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk!

Listen to the song here:

Earlier this month, I was fortunate to play with my band The Cool Ones at Nathan Phillips Square for the Mabuhay Festival.  Thank you Karen and PIDC for the opportunity!  Thank you to Mannie Panaguiton for taking some amazing shots of our performance!


L-R: Nelson Sobral (guitar), Wayne Sobers (bass), Arlene Paculan (vocals & keys), Anh Phung (flute), Alan Madhaven (drums)
