OPM legend Jett Pangan officially signed a contract with Star Music yesterday, March 1.
At the contract signing, Jett was very delighted to finally become part of the record label. “I feel very lucky and fortunate to be a part of Star Music. Ang gandang breeding ground ng Star Music because andami nilang avenues eh. Ang daming pwedeng gawin not just a solo performer but also as a songwriter,” he said in an interview after the event.
Jett was the former vocalist of 80’s rock band The Dawn and the founder of the Jett Pangan Group. Although more familiar with this genre, he shared that he is willing to explore others as well.
“Alam ko ang Star Music is involved in music na hindi lang pang-commercial release. They are all very much involved in theme songs, teleseryes, [and] movies. Bilang artist, songwriter, and composer, ang daming potentials for me to explore,” he shared.
Star Music Audio Content Head Jonathan Manalo noted how Jett’s voice could very much suit teleseryes in a “unique” way.
“’Yung style naman ni Jett 'pag narinig mo, cinematic eh. ‘Yung big rock ballads na not the usual teleserye sound pero pwede,” said Jonathan.
Jett’s latest single titled “Lipad” is a love song about someone who's in love with a person, though they aren’t sure how much of their relationship is real, or how much of it is a dream. When asked who the inspiration behind the song is, he answered, “Si Liza Soberano.”
“When I heard plans for Liza, naging inspiration ‘yun, na para siyang isa siyang unattainable na tao,” he continued.
Jett’s upcoming single will soon be released in the next few weeks, where it will be followed by a series of singles to be part of one album.
Welcome to Star Music and we can’t wait for you album, Jett! :)
