The Cagayan de Oro native Arthur Nery bet on himself and moved to Manila in 2019. He debuted with a full-length album Letters Never Sent under O/C Records where he quickly gained critical acclaim and commercial success with his brand of alternative neo-soul music.
Fast-forward to 2021: he moved to Viva Records and then proceeded to solidify his status in the music scene. With singles such as "TAKE ALL THE LOVE", "Pelikula" with Janine Tenoso, "Pagsamo", and "Isa lang", he proved that it was possible to deliver hugot and feels in spades without losing the mind-bending musical arrangements and production. While his falsetto-core contemporaries flirted with different musical forms such as pop, pop-rock, indie, lo-fi, electronica, etc., he stayed true to his alternative soul music. He also held his own in the HRNA digital concert alongside Unique, Adie, and Rob Deniel. Truly, the neo-soul has cometh.
