One of Southern California’s leading Filipino-American bands is holding an album launch event this coming Friday, May 30, at Gerry’s Grill Artesia at 9 p.m.
Browndition, a Los Angeles-based Filipino band known for their OPM pop music, is made up Kris Ivan Bacani (Vocals/Guitars), John Loveres (Vocals/Bass), John “Keisy” Hicban (Keyboards) and Jayson Vera Cruz (Drums).
Sponsored by Cerritos Mitsubishi and Pinoy Radio, Friday’s launch will have special guests Introvoys, and the lovely, Miss Antoinette Taus.
Browndition harnesses the talents of each of its members coming from different musical stages in their carreer and musical backgrounds, and communicating it through a wide variety of listeners. Browndition’s music was born from gospel, RNB, and alternative genres, which were all infused to pop music with a Filipino taste.
Browndition was initiated by Bacani and Hicban in 2007 at a small apartment in West Covina. The similarities of their musical influences and genre paved the way for the formation of the band. In 2008, Browndition will never be the same with the addition of John Loveres (Vocals/Bass). The encounter took place at Bamboo Bistro West Covina where Kris and Keisy regularly play on the weekends. John met with the band and jammed a few… and the rest is history.
2009 will be the year where Browndition will forever be blessed upon the emergence of Jayson Vera Cruz(Drums).
