According to Kathryn, she ventures into music to widen her horizon as an artist.
“Acting will remain my comfort zone. But for now, I want to explore and learn many things like singing, dancing, and hosting. I also want to know how to play musical instruments,” she said.
The 18-year-old recording star admits that she is very hands-on in the production of her album filled with easy-listening, feel-good tracks.
“Since this is my first time in recording, I trusted Star Music with the song choices because they surely know better what fits my voice,” Kathryn explained. “But in terms of the album’s concept, layout, and total look, and even in the music video, I helped out to make it really personalized.”
When asked about her musical influences, the Teen Queen has a handful of favorites, including Juris, Michael Bublé, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and her idol Sarah Geronimo.
Featured in Kathryn’s debut album produced by Rox Santos, are three revivals, five original songs, and three bonus tracks.
She made a revival of Sharon Cuneta’s “Mr. DJ,” Cris Villongco’s “Crush ng Bayan,” and Heart Evangelista’s “Love Has Come My Way.”
Among the original tracks are “Na Sa ‘Yo Din Pala,” “Ikaw Na Nga Yata, “K Tnx Bye,” “Temporary Deja Vu,” and album’s carrier single “You Don’t Know Me” which was composed by singer-songwriter Marion Aunor.
All eight tracks have minus one versions in the album.
Meanwhile, Teen King Daniel Padilla is also part of Kathryn’s debut album. Part of the bonus tracklist are Teen Queen’s version of “Pagdating ng Panahon and the popular KathNiel duet performances of “Got to Believe In Magic” and “Pinas Smile” (ABS-CBN 2014 Summer Station ID).
Kathryn’s self-titled debut album will be available at all record bars nationwide for only P199. Digital tracks can also be downloaded via online music stores such as iTunes and Mymusicstore.com.ph.
