No one ever said that falling in love was easy.
You pour your heart out. You give it your all. Then they break your heart into a million pieces. You shut yourself off. You build walls to protect yourself from getting hurt again. Then someone new comes into your life and breaks down those walls you’ve built.
Don’t be afraid to take a chance. Don’t be afraid to fall in love again. Cause you’ll never know, that someone might be the person you’ve been waiting for all along.
This is for every single person who fell out of love.
For every single person got their hearts broken and lost faith in love.
For every single person who’s afraid of falling in love again.
For every single person who’s scared of commitment.
Someday the right person will come and when he/she does don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to be loved.
This is how singer and songwriter Jace Roque describes his latest single LOVE.

I’m happy to announce that my next single “LOVE” will be released thru AWAL (a Kobalt Music Group subsidiary) on September 27, 2019.
Most notable artists on AWAL are Betty Who, deadmau5, Kim Petras, Lauv, Jeremy Renner, Jesse McCartney, Madison Beer, R3HAB, Now United and many more. So I’m very excited for everyone to hear my new music and I hope that people will relate to it as much as they did with my previous single “Sober”. Support OPM!
How I got a Distribution Agreement from AWAL (a Kobalt Music Group subsidiary)?
Since the past year I’ve been presenting my Demo Album to various major record labels in the country. The feedback so far has been good. They like my music and says that it shows a lot of potential but here’s the catch, none of them are really willing to take the risk because my sound caters more to the international market.
Though I completely disagree. Music is universal. People will always gravitate towards music for as long as it’s beautifully crafted, authentic and relatable. I also believe that the local music market is ripe for this kind of music. A lot of new wave artists like James Reid, Moira Dela Torre, Hazel Faith, Ben & Ben, the recently viral SB19 and the likes paved the way for the resurgence of new original music and not just covers and revivals.
(But I’m still hoping someday that the label execs and representatives could see the value of my work and what I can bring to the table.)
Forward to a year later. At the height of Taylor Swift’s dilemma of not owning her master recordings, I came across AWAL in one video that was discussing the importance of retaining the rights to your original recordings.
I was already familiar with AWAL because I am a huge fan of Lauv’s music. So I checked their website, saw that they were accepting submissions so I sent them my music. Suntok sa buwan. I wasn’t really getting my hopes up because they do state that they “don’t automatically accept everyone who applies”. Then 3 days after, I received a response welcoming me to the AWAL family.
