A self confessed hopeless romantic, grentperez has mastered the art of depicting matters of the heart with his intricate songwriting and swooning melodies. “Why I Love You” comes as the next instalment and it looks to be his biggest moment yet. Sharing more, grentperez explained: “Why I Love you is a song about a relationship that seems too chaotic for its own good, but somehow just works. This song really brings out the perfect imperfections within a relationship, talking about the inconvenience and moodiness that this person brings, but you ultimately love those factors because that’s what makes them who they are.  On top of that, to me makes the relationship that much more fun.”

After spending the pandemic honing his own sound and nurturing his songwriting, grentperez has garnered wide-acclaim over the last few months with his original, heart-on-sleeve songwriting and timeless vocals. Garnering millions of new listeners and media support globally, 2021 has been a stand out year for the newcomer.

Previous hit single “Cherry Wine” steam-rolled into the viral charts in Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam soon after its release, and has already accumulated 18 MILLION streams to date. He’s since garnered amazing support throughout Southeast Asia, landing coveted features on MTV Asia, Vh1 India, SEA Today (Indonesia), ABS-CBN (Philippines), Nylon Manila and more.

His follow-up tracks “My Heart It Beats For You” and “Clementine” similarly touched fans across the globe. A barrage of fans worldwide submitted their videos to be a part of grentperez’s “Official Community Music Video” after he did a call-out on social media, asking his followers to participate.

Born in Australia, grentperez grew up as the youngest of three kids in a Filipino family. Raised on a diet of The Eagles, The Beatles, and Queen thanks to his dad before moving onto the likes of Musiq Soulchild. As soon as  he received his first nylon string acoustic he taught himself Jeremy Passion’s “Lemonade”, learning chords, shapes, and plucking patterns. At the end of 2013, he launched his YouTube channel which currently sits at almost half a MILLION subscribers.

Sat on a wealth of original releases, grentperez is without doubt an artist to watch this year.
