The ‘soulful’ side of KZ Tandingan

Talk about MUSIC with SOUL.

KZ Tandingan enlightens what ‘soulful music’ is as she brings her newest album ‘Soul Supremacy’, that will brilliantly impact and clear bleary moods.

In an interview with DJ Kyle during her visit in Home Radio studio, she gamely shared facts about the new album.

“I want to show to the people na ito talaga ang music ko. Nasa album na ito ang buong soul ko.”

In fact, she penned one song in the album that offers 11 tracks.

“I’m very happy with the outcome, naging hands on ako sa content, sa areglo.”

She also added how grateful she is to collaborate with artists such as Michael Pangilinan, Singaporean rappers and Gloc 9 whom she considers one of his inspirations in music.

KZ’s early life however, wasn’t that easy.

At age 3, she started to learn singing though had to stop when she was in senior year in high school after developing polyps in her throat.

Devastated at that time, KZ recalls that due to her throat problem, belting high tones became impossible.

“Takot ako na ma-disappoint ang tao sa akin dahil sanay sila na bumibirit ako, devastated talaga ako, tinatanong nila ako kung bakit hindi na ako kumakanta then sinasabi ko focus muna ako sa pag-aaral.”

It’s true that the craft you love will remain, KZ didn’t stop, she turned into acoustic music, she tried a different genre, she didn’t stop singing, auditioning, training…and surprisingly in 2012, she was named as ‘X-Factor Philippines’ winner.

Reflecting on all she has done, KZ pointed that it’s always not too late to reach for your dreams, to do what you love doing; after several albums, world tours, international acts and industry awards, she is learning and working harder than ever.

You just have to believe in yourself, put a lot of hard work and love sa craft mo”, she said as she flashes a toothy grin, powerful words indeed that best describe a real artist.

Easily, KZ will move you in a way music changed her life.
