The 5th Star Awards for Music by the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) was held last Saturday, October 13 at the Solaire Resort in Pasay City and among the winners are Ivory Music & Video artists Moonstar88 and Luke Mejares.
Bursting with melodic guitar riffs and sweet vocals, Moonstar88’s latest record “This Year” wins “Alternative Album of the Year”. “This Year is a very solid album. It has a little bit of everything that we've grown and evolved into, musically,” said the band. “We'd like to thank God, our families, the Moonstareros, Ivory Music & Video, our album producers — Chito Miranda, Jomal Linao, Allan Burdeos & Allan Montero, the studios — Pink Noise, Blue Light and Tower Of Doom, our manager Darwin Hernandez, road manager Jasmin Macaraeg, Soupstar Family and the late Richard Tan of Backbeat.”
Another Ivory Music artist dancing his way to the top is Luke Mejares who won “RnB Artist of the Year”. The Kasayaw singer took to his Facebook page to express his gratitude to all those behind this award, “I would like to thank the members of The Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) for recognizing my work in the music industry. It was such an honor to be considered & ultimately chosen as the "R&B ARTIST OF THE YEAR". To Ivory Music & Video, producers, sponsors & to all of you who have continually given your support, THANK YOU!!! MABUHAY ANG PMPC, MABUHAY ANG OPM!”
Luke’s third solo album KASAYAW includes all-time favorite OPMs songs popularized by Randy Santiago, Rico J. Puno, Ogie Alcasid and VST & Company. The songs in the album were produced by True Faith’s bassist Bimbo Yance, in which a different side of him was exposed through this unique collaboration.
