Filipinos are widely recognized around the world as musically gifted, talented performers. In Hong Kong, most entertainment venues – from theme parks to Wan Chai and Lan Kwai Fong night spots – feature Filipino singers, dancers and instrumentalists crooning and belting their way through a repertoire of standards, pop favorites and current mainstream hits until the wee hours of the morning.

Hong Kong-based singer-songwriter and theater artist William Elvin is showcasing a different dimension of Filipino musicality and creativity in his self-produced album entitled “Sacred/Profane/Mundane”, to be launched in Hong Kong on July 13, 2019, Saturday, at the Recital Hall of the Hong Kong City Hall in Central. The event starts at 3 PM.

“Sacred/ Profane/Mundane” is a collection of original compositions that highlight introspective, emotional and carefully crafted lyricism; dreamy and whimsical melodies; as well as raw, visceral and intuitive musical arrangements – drawing from various influences such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Filipino alternative pop/rock spearheaded by APO Hiking Society and the Eraserheads.

Described as “brilliant” and “soulful, propulsively melodic” by the Philippine Daily Inquirer and “theatrical but authentic” by ABS-CBN News, William Elvin’s unique sound is exemplified by the album’s promotional singles:  the country/folk-inspired “The Last Lovers on Earth” and the haunting ballad “Ang Sabi Nila”, which are both gaining a growing number of listeners on Spotify and Apple Music.

William Elvin’s band for the “Sacred/Profane/Mundane” recording sessions is comprised by Filipino musicians in Hong Kong, with Satur Tiamson and Lloyd Yamid alternating on drums, Rico Cristobal Jr. on bass and Matt Alvarez Mateo on guitars.
