Mecca Music starts a new chapter with new artist Tamara

Independent music company Mecca Music continues its legacy of creating a collaborative environment for upcoming local musicians by relaunching its brand.

“I believe the music industry is at an inflection point,” Champ Lui Pio, Mecca Music founder, says. “The music landscape has totally shifted in favor of the artist. As it should be, artists should be running the music industry.”

Along with this, the company also marks its new chapter with the unveiling of its latest talent: singer-songwriter Tamara.

“I’m definitely excited working with Mecca Music. Champ laid out a solid career plan for me and surrounded me with incredibly talented people to work and collaborate [with] on my music.” Tamara shares. “I’m really happy with the turn out of “Ngayon” and I can’t wait to share it and for people to hear my music.”

Singer-songwriter Tamara was discovered at a songwriting competition. She bagged first place, but that wasn’t her only win that day: Champ Liu Pio, who was judging the competition, offered to sign her under Mecca Music.

The months spent on writing, recording and brainstorming over her music have finally paid off with the release of her debut single “Ngayon.”

Produced by Roll Martinez (Hale), “Ngayon” is currently being played at several radio stations, with the goal of reaching more ears every day. Released on Spotify & Apple Music last Saturday, 2 March 2019.
