“It’s my first full project with Star Records, it is also my first all-original album,” said Jed. “We have put so much work into it that the very moment I heard the final tracks, I am already looking forward to sharing it with everyone who has been supporting my music.”
“All Original” features songs, which according to Jed, are new and far from usual. “Everything sounds different and the songs express different feelings. Actually, each one can be a potential single on its own,” said Jed, who is set to celebrate later this year his 10th anniversary in the music industry. “Of course, the signature ‘high note ballads’ wil be in the album but there are tracks that will make the listeners wonder if it is really me singing.”
True to its title, Jed’s first album under Star Records features 10 original tracks including his carrier single “Ikaw Na,” composed by Soc Villanueva; “Wish,” composed by Jonathan Manalo and co-written with Garlic Garcia; “When Love Once Was Beautiful,” composed by Genevieve ‘Biv’ De Vera and Raizo Chabeldin; “Dito Lang,” composed by Francis ‘Kiko’ Salazar; ”Ipinapangako Ko,” composed by Christian Martinez; “Sa Habang Buhay,” composed by Wilson John Escaner; “Dalangin Ko,” composed, arranged, produced, recorded, mixed and Mastered by Jimmy Antiporda; “Will Forever,” composed by Jungee Marcelo; “Home To You,” composed by Trina Belamide; and Jed’s very own composition titled “Tanging ikaw.” The album also contains bonus mixes of ‘Wish’ and ‘Dito Lang.’
Apart from his latest album, the first Filipino champion of the prestigious World Championship of the Performing Arts (WCOPA) shares another milestone to his career as he was recently hailed as the first Filipino to be inducted into the Performing Arts Hall of Fame in Hollywood. Jed is the first Grand Champion Performer of the World to be awarded the treasured Achievement Award and inducted into the elite Performing Arts Hall of Fame that will have a live worldwide webcast on July 19.
Jed’s “All Original” album will be launched in “ASAP 18” this Sunday (March 3) and will soon be available on record bars nationwide for only P350.
