Ebe Dancel took to social media to air his thoughts on some of the fast-rising OPM artists and bands today.
On Twitter, Dancel said that the artists today "are still at it, writing excellent songs for their generation." He mentioned the likes of Ben And Ben, Clara Benin, Autotelic, Davey Langit, The Ransom Collective, and Bullet Dumas.
Appreciate it. The younger ones are still at it, writing excellent songs for their generation. Some of my favorites are @BenAndBenMusic @clarabeninmusic @AutotelicMusic (we use the same chord patterns) @iamdaveylangit @TheRansomCMusic and @bulletdumas https://t.co/F67KsUlOsF— Ebe Dancel (@ebedancel) December 15, 2017
Here are a few more favorites among the younger bands--@cheatsph @reeseypeasy @valenzuelabp Thyro and Yumi, Ylona Garcia, @moirarachelle4 @IVOFSPADES @JensenXFlips. Just too many making their own wonderful paths— Ebe Dancel (@ebedancel) December 15, 2017
The tweet came in response to a netizen's suggestion of updating the song "Telepono," one of the hits he made during his time with Sugarfree.
If i do, then the song wouldnt be the same anymore, im afraid. I believe songs are photos captured in words and music. They serve as a reminder of a certain point in my life. People are free to associate any of my songs with their own experience, new and old https://t.co/xHjnY2Ba3u— Ebe Dancel (@ebedancel) December 15, 2017
He also commended the sense of community among today's artists as he got reminded of good old days.
I also see a deep, meaningful sense of community among the younger bands. Reminds me of the good old days when bands like Sandwich, Itchyworms, Ciudad, Twisted Halo, Cambio, Sugarfree would have prod gigs and we'd watch each other's sets.— Ebe Dancel (@ebedancel) December 15, 2017
Dancel also reminded people to stop finding the bands and artists of yesterday in the bands and artists of today.
We should stop looking for the next Eheads, Rivermaya, Ryan Cayabyab. As Gary V once said "we are all specifically designed to be ourselves." There's only one of me. Young musicians im sure will do great things in the days to come— Ebe Dancel (@ebedancel) December 15, 2017

James is everywhere. He is so busy, but he never fails to make time with friends. He loves all types of music. He loves food. He loves to travel too, if time permits. James is everywhere and what he sees is what you get.
