Aside from being a hunky actor, JC de Vera is now a certified recording artist.
His debut album Stellar has been out for a few weeks now and has been among the Top 10 bestsellers in select record stores.
In an interview with JC during a press conference of his album, he proudly shared that he was the one who thought of the album title.
"The whole album is about a dream. It started with a dream about a guy falling in love with a girl. Alam mo 'yon kapag sinabi mong stellar, constellation, stars, kapag nagdi-dream ka at night, hindi ba you look up at the stars, tapos you dream. So basically 'yun siya," he explained.
If there is one thing that JC is certain about is that the songs on his album are “well-balanced.”
“Merong ballad, merong danceable song, merong isang song na celebration, may heartbreak song para mag-cater siya sa lahat talaga and ‘yun nga para maka-relate lahat,” he said.
As a first-time singer, JC openly shared that he and his record producer Jonathan Ong made sure not to go overboard in terms of choosing the tracks for his album.
“We just made sure na ‘yung mga songs na gagawin talagang magfi-fit for me. Sinabi ko ang mga songs na type kong pinapakinggan ko and ‘yung mga songs na gusto kong gawin,” he explained.
Despite the launch of his album JC was very candid in saying that a concert has not yet crossed his mind.
JC along with Daniel Matsunaga and Matteo Guidicelli headlined their first group “experimental” concert July last year titled Dreamboys at the Music Museum.
So who’s the better singer between him and Matteo?
“Si Matt inspirasyon ko ‘yun. Naging buddy-buddy ko siya tapos nung Dreamboys sabi ko sa kanya ‘Bro hindi malabong magkakaroon ka ng album!’ So siya ang nauna tapos sinuportahan ko siya,” he said.
He added, “Sabi ko ‘Buti gumawa ka!’ kasi diba siya talaga ‘yung talagang naging headline ng Dreamboys eh diba?’ Akala ko hindi rin naman ako magkakaroon rin.”
As early as now, the budding singer quashed potential competition rumors between the two of them saying that: “Walang competition actually sa aming dalawa. Suportahan lang kasi ‘yun nga naging buddy-buddy ko nga si Matt.”
