Writing his own songs and compiling them onto an album is one of the ultimate dreams of Garrett Bolden. And he is serious about this goal.
The balladeer welcomes the New Year with his newest single and original composition “Our Love” under GMA Music, it is available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube Music, and other digital stores worldwide beginning Jan. 11.
“Writing my own song was indeed an adventure I took during the pandemic. I had the time to be alone and reflect on everything that is happening around me, emotions from my past experiences, and also experiences that my friends shared with me in the past years,” he shared.
“As I was writing it, I felt the same feeling when I lost my father. I was really sad and longing and through the song, it felt as if I could turn back time, see him, and spend more time with him.”
According to the Kapuso singer, “Our Love” is a song that relates how love is something that should not be taken for granted. One should always cherish the time and the memories he or she shares with people they love.
“Nakaka-relate ako nang sobra kasi it’s a song that aids one’s longing for someone. It is from my heart and I dedicate it to everyone who is going through the same feeling of love,” said the All-Out Sundays mainstay.
Garrett, who was one of the top 5 finalists of the first season of The Clash, is humbled by his experiences and feats he’s had so far in his music career as a Kapuso. He was named “New Male Recording Artist of the Year” at the 11th PMPC Star Awards for Music, "People's Choice Award - Favorite New Male Artist" at the Awit Awards 2020, and “Outstanding Achiever in the Music Industry” at the Philippine Top Choice for Excellence last year.
Now, Garrett is looking forward to telling more stories to his avid supporters and listeners as a songwriter beginning with “Our Love.” He quipped, “I know I am new in this field of songwriting, but after I finished doing this song, I felt that it is ready to be shared and be heard.”
