After being scouted and signed by O/C Records last year, 20-year-old singer and songwriter Adie Garcia said it’s been a colorful journey so far for him.

“Ang daming ups and downs kasi hindi naman after signing parang sunud-sunod, parang may mga times na parang na-da-down ako sa sarili ko. Kung paano ko i-introduce yung sarili ko sa industriya, paano yung sound ko. Kasi madami ring nagsasabi na katunog ko si ganito, si ganyan, so parang na-pe-pressure ako nung start ko. Hanggang sa ganito, nag-release ako ng first single na medyo medy okay. Tapos dun na ako medyo nag-stand out. Dun ko nilabas yung potential ko as an artist. Hanggang sa nag-experiment ako. Nag-release ako ng ibang klaseng genre. Rollercoaster talaga, parang ganun siya. Ganun yung pattern sa journey ko so far,” he shared during his year-end thanksgiving party with O/C Records earlier this month.

The Laguna-based singer, who just released his latest single “Tahanan” last December 8, revealed that carving out a serious career in music was not in his plans last year.

“Honestly, lahat ng nangyayari sa akin ngayon unexpected. Kasi hindi talaga dumaan sa isip ko maging ganito, na mapunta sa sitwasyon na ganito. Last year kasi nung pre-pandemic days, plano ko talaga pumasok ng school. Parang naka-ready na ako sa kukunin kong course which was Architecture so naghahanap na ako ng university. Hanggang sa nag-pandemic na nagunaw yung plano ko. So last year nung nag-start ako mag-music, wala lang gusto ko lang mag-share na mapansin yung mga rendition ng covers ko. Hanggang sa ito na nga yung unexpected na nangyari so far sa career ko. I’m truly blessed,” he admitted.

After finishing his first year as an artist, Adie said he is nothing but thankful and now has a more hopeful outlook for the coming years.

“Hindi ko alam kung paano ko ipu-put into words yung mga achievements at lahat ng nangyari sa akin this year. Pero sobrang blessed lang talaga siguro sa lahat ng na-achieve ko this year. Napaka-surreal lang sa tulad ko na nag-start lang this pandemic kaya hidni ko talaga ito in-expect ng ganitong kabilis. Di ba usually pag starting artist ka, ang daming pagdadaanan, ang dami mong kailangan na ma-experience na ganito, ganyan. But for me parang ang bilis lang. Hindi ko alam kung meant ba sa akin ito or what, pero ang masasabi ko lang sobrang blessed ko lang talaga siguro na maranasan ito agad agad. With the song ‘Paraluman’ sobrang game changer nung song na yun for me. Ang dami nabago sa life ko simula nung ni-release ko yung song na yun. Sobrang bilis lang talaga. Sobrang grateful ko lang talaga sa lahat ng na-achieve ko this year and sa mga susunod pa,” he said.

Published under O/C Records, Adie’s latest single “Tahanan” is now out on all leading digital music  platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube.
