MANILA, Philippines - From being a former band vocalist of 6CycleMind, Ney Dimaculangan takes a leap in his career as he goes solo.

The voice behind the award-winning “RPG Metanoia” soundtrack entitled Kaya Mo (Best Theme Song for 2010’s Metro Manila Film Festival and Favorite Media Sound Track in the recent Myx Music Awards) and Imortal’s (ABS-CBN’s hit Teleserye) theme song entitled Walang Hanggan, a collaboration with Yeng Constantino, ventures into a solo singing career with his much awaited self-titled album under Star Records.

Having a perfect mix of alternative tracks, this album will surely be a hit to Ney’s avid fans as he sets on this new challenge. Ten songs in this album were all written, arranged and produced by no other than the premier band vocalist himself.

“It never came to my mind na magkakaroon ako ng ganitong project,” said the former band vocalist. “It would also be an opportunity for me to grow as an artist,” he added.

Ney’s skills are beyond any question of musicality. In fact, with his previous band, he was able to release five successful albums with chart topping hits such as Sandalan, Sige, Prinsesa, Upside Down, Magsaya, Kasalanan, and the recent Kung Wala Na Nga.

Launched recently in Rockville Bar, Timog Avenue, Ney’s first album under Star Records is sure to enjoy good sales as Ney’s popularity extends to different parts of the country. His successful nationwide tours and brand promotions together with his former band under a famous alcoholic beverage proves his intense popularity.

Included in the album are 12 tracks, 10 originals and two bonus tracks. Among the original tracks are Sana, Velvet Skies, Tagapagligtas, Ligaw, Shut Up, Hopeless, Sama-Sama, Himig Mo, Fall-Out and October. Bonus tracks include Kaya Mo and Walang Hanggan.

Ney’s self-titled album is now available in all record bars nationwide. Listeners can also preview tracks or purchase a digital copy at www.starrecords.ph. For more info and updates, visit www.facebook.com/starrecordsphil and www.facebook.com/NeyOfficial.
