Same Day Edit

In earlier posts in social media, I touched upon the songwriting process with Johnoy Danao. I actually asked Johnoy a year earlier to write music for Bianca Gonzales’ wedding. But it never came into fruition.

The harmonies of Ransom Collective proved more suitable for the island vibe of her wedding to JC. I suppose it wasn’t the “Right Time” yet. Yes, pun intended.

So we finally got around to doing this collaboration when I emailed Johnoy again around August. I described the love story, and I described the feel. But my musical talents are severely lacking so it was all JD from there. I got the lyrics around September 18 and an acoustic demo on September 21(!). That’s some prolific genius right there.
