To say that Thursday night was a blast is an understatement, as One Music PH held its first ever collaboration gig with Adober Studios for One Music X Adobers Night at the Historia Boutique Bar and Restaurant. The jam-packed venue was filled with music from artists from both digital platforms, much to the delight of their fans and regular patrons of the intimate venue.
To kick off the night’s festivities, One Music PH artist Volts Vallejo serenaded the audience with his smooth voice and impressive loop skills, a signature he developed throughout his experience doing gigs. Part of his set included some of his originals such as “Hey Crush” and “Anuna,” the latter of which just made it to the Pinoy Myx Coundown charts! He also covered “Oo” by UpDharmaDown and “Ikot-Ikot” by Sarah G, adding his own style to each song.
Following Volts’ performance came Neo Rodriguez who rocked our socks off with some of the greatest OPM hits, getting the crowd to sing along with him throughout his set. Some of the covers he performed included “Paano” by Gary Valenciano, a medley of “You,” “Don’t Know What to Do,” “Sila,” and “Ipagpatawad mo,” an intimate version of "Makita Kang Muli,” and crowd favorite, "Huling El Bimbo.”
Next up was our very own Timmy Albert, who commanded the attention with his unique voice and solitary guitar. No band needed! Some songs in his set included inimate versions of “Chasing Fire” by Lauv, “Get You” by Daniel Cesar, the ever-popular “Mundo” by IV of Spades, as well as original song "Roses & Sunflowers.” His performance really showed us that sometimes less is more.
Karl Zarote definitely slayed on Thursday night, showing off his powerful vocals and off-the-scale notes in his performance. Out of all the songs the young artist sang that night, one of the most notable covers was of Bruno Mars’ “Versace On the Floor.” Maybe the power came from his bedazzled microphone?
To cap off the night, up and coming artist Miguel Odron caught the audience’s attention with his smooth, deconstructed versions of Bruno Mars’ “Finesse,” and Mariah Carey’s “Babydoll.” Simple, yet powerful, his performance made it the perfect conclusion to a spectacular night. And with so many stellar performances that night, this is definitely one for the books.
