She is currently juggling her IT (Yes, She is a computer nerd by day!) and music career, which got a boost when she returned to the Philippines in 2006 and was immediately signed by independent label Terno Recordings. Since that time, Swissy has become more visible in events both in and out of the country. In August 2007 she released her debut single “How It All Started”, which enjoyed radio airplay and reached #1 on MTV’s weekly countdown. She also recorded a remake the 70s hit “Superstar” for a compilation album, and in May 2008, played alongside labelmates Up Dharma Down at Singapore’s Mosaic Music Festival.
Her exploits in the independent music scene have made her quite the sensation in the region. She recently won the Best Artist Award from the independent music website junkonline.net and is nominated for Best Pop Act at the AVIMA 2009, both of which are regional award giving bodies. Her album is also now available in Japan.
With the release of her 1st full-length album “She Smiles” in June 2008, Swissy is well on her way to reaching her ultimate goal of being able to write and perform her music full-time and share it with the rest of the world. With the music video for the second single, “Your Life’s In Rewind”, currently under production, she’s ready to go full swing. In the meantime, Swissy has been sharing her music by doing live gigs in Metro Manila’s more popular live music venues. A provincial tour with several independent music acts is also under works.
