BLOG OWNER: J. ROEL LUNGAY Year 2009 is a trailblazing year for us as we embark on a new musical venture we've never tried before - collaborative songwriting and self-publishing. It's a dream we never dared explore in years past when our minds were clear, pure and innocent (LoL), and our imaginations, ambitions and dares were kinda at its peak (huh!). Even though we're both musicians who grew up - and played sports - together, and whose passion for music is beyond anyone's knowing and description, our respective musical journeys have never really crossed paths before except at informal and not-so-formal gatherings (e.g. barkada gatherings, music club gigs, etc) where one played and the other appreciated, in company of boyhood friends. Thirty something years, as a matter of fact, such life's arrangement seemed to be the soup du jour of a lifetime between us from years 1976 to 2008. Then 2009 came and all of a sudden, boom! (forgive us for sounding too cocky and ambitious, hahaha), like an old friend would like to say, an "ala-Lennon-McCartney/Bernie Taupin-Elton John" meeting of the minds and hearts almost instantaneously became the rule of the day and of our newfound fervor, writing songs together!

Link: https://boholanocomposer.blogspot.com/ While most describe themselves as bloggers, I simply self-desribe it as song-blogging. The reason is obvious. On one hand, I love "painting music" (tunesmith-ing) in my ART SONGS and HYMNS adventures, since 2009 I was kind of thrown into something I didn't know I was capable of doing, i.e., writing lyrics for another songwriter. Funny, because it does have the appearance that I write with purely secular and "hard-rocking" lyrical themes. Kidding aside, this expereince has actually given me an opportunity to introspect, imagine and dare on putting together words I never had the experience of doing early in my songwriting journey. In a way, I am thankful to my friend, Romeo Mascarinas (RCM) for pushing me (or, shall I say, he won't take no for an answer) that now writing lyrics, too, has become musch easier than I once imagined. In fact, I find song collaboration even more interesting and less-stressful than "a do-it-all" style of songwriting. Well, that's where I am right now in my creative writing journey. On the side, I still do my "tunesmith-ing" and collaborating with prolific writers (hymnists) long gone writing newer musical settings for Christian poetries and hymns, which is an altogether different adventure.
