Best Acoustic Male Performer awardee Jimmy Bondoc is now busy promoting his newest album titled "Walang Araw, Walang Ulan."

As part of his promotion Bondoc performed in ABS-CBN's morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda."

"I have this new album it's called 'Walang Araw, Walang Ulan' it's under Sony-BMG," Bondoc told the show's host former MTV VJ Donita Rose.

Also known as "Mr. Musikero," Bondoc said his newest CD features all of his original compositions.

"I'm just so proud of the album kasi it's all original lahat. Ito ay sinulat ko noong medyo nagpapahinga pahinga ako diyan sa tabi tabi. So 'yon I'm proud of it kasi writing songs is for me harder than just me singing. I sing a lot pero madali lang 'yon. Pero yung sulat medyo mahirap," explained Bondoc.

The crooner said that "Walang Araw, Walang Ulan" was originally a digital album.
 
"I think it's still available digitally. However parang  it's being played on music channels and I heard on the radio and I'm not a radio listener. So naabutan ko noong umiinit na they decided to make physical album," he said.

Included in "Walang Araw, Walang Ulan" CD are songs "Hulog," "Unan Kita," "Kaharian," Walang Araw, Walang Ulan," and "Hanggang Dito Na Lang."

In Bondoc's official website: www.jimmybondoc.org, he said that he is now preparing for the launching concert for "Walang Araw, Walang Ulan" album this Friday, January 16 at the Music Museum.

"Sana naman manuod kayo di ba? I would love to meet some of you there. It's a nice show, very different from past shows," he said.

James Patrick Romero Bondoc in real life is also part of all-male singing group "Sabado Boys" with Luke Mejares, DJ Myke, Mike Chan, Top Suzara and Paolo Santos.

Bondoc is known for his original hits "The Man I Was With You", "Akin Na Lang Sana Siya" and "Let Me Be The One."
