Meet Filipino music artist, Eunice Jorge of Gracenote.

 

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I sing for Gracenote. I compose and produce songs and teach music in a private school in Marikina City.

 

Describe the city you’re living in and what it’s like to live there.

Marikina City is clean, peaceful and well organized. And the people are so disciplined. It’s a perfect place for me to rest and escape from city life.

What is the best and worst thing about living in your city?

Best thing is the location. It’s not that far from the main cities and I don’t need to travel that long to get home. And my management’s office and studio is just around the area and it makes it easier for me to work and be productive. I also feel safe knowing that we have responsible leaders and administration. And what I love the most is the healthy environment. I enjoy bike rides and walking cause the streets are surrounded with trees. It helps my mental state too as a creative.

 

Worst thing maybe is that houses & lot prices are getting higher. Our city is starting to pick up and establishments are developing so more people are getting interested of finding a place around the area and traffic is also becoming a problem.

 

Give us 3 words that describe what it’s like to be a creative in your city.

Appreciated

Proud

Supported

 

How did you start your career in music?

My parents are musicians and they’ve always wanted me to get involved in any activities that have to do with music. I learned the piano when I was 5 And the violin when I was 12. I joined our church’s music ministry at a young age. Until I discovered bands like Paramore, New Found Glory, Yellowcard, and more. Got inspired and learned the guitar and other instruments and eventually decided to form my own band. That’s the time I started writing and making music. And the rest is history.

 

I have the best team in the world.

 

Were the people around you supportive of your decision on working as a creative?

Yes. I have the best team in the world. From my management to my label and followers, I’m truly blessed to be surrounded with very supportive people. If it weren’t for them, I won’t be able to execute my visions for my art.

 

What are some goals and ambitions you have for your future work?

My main goal is to just keep creating music and put it out there to find the people who can relate and connect. My greatest ambition is to be able to have my music be heard all over the world. I usually just go with the flow and let music surprise me.

If you could collaborate with any person in the world who would it be?

This is a hard question for me cause there’s a lot! But one of them is Jack Antonoff of Fun/Bleachers, a brilliant producer and a great artist.

 

How would you describe the women around you?

Women are strong and amazing. I’m happy and super proud to see a lot of powerful and talented ladies, especially in the entertainment industry. Women rule!!

Were there any local female creatives that you looked up to when you were growing up?

Barbie Almalbis. For me, she’s the queen of rock scene during those days til now.

 

Are there any challenging aspects of being a female in your industry?

I see it as an advantage, to be honest. As a female vocalist and instrumentalist, people see a “cool factor” when I play and do my thing on stage. I just do what I love and try my best not to let anyone hold me back. I personally think the most challenging part tho is the monthly curse. But that proves how strong a woman can be to be able to deal with such pain every month. Period.

 

Through your art, you can change someone’s world.

 

Do you have any advice to young women who are aspiring to work in your field?

Don’t let anyone belittle you just cause you’re a woman. You are stronger than you think. Remember, music is a universal language and it doesn’t require a gender. Through your art, you can change someone’s world.
