TRIA BASCON Launches Jazz Album "Wanderlust"

Too bad I wasn't able to attend Tria's album launch last month. I found a video on YouTube though announcing the event and found her voice very soothing. Her album must be something lovely to listen to when you want to unwind at the end of a long day :)

Press Release:

Coming from a very musical family it was only natural that Tria Bascon would start singing at an early age. Her father and older siblings were already well known in the music business in Cebu in her native Philippines.

After gaining a degree in Business Administration, Tria was spotted singing in a restaurant/jazz lounge and this started her professional singing career. The early influences in her style and range were renowned international vocalists of jazz, standards and pop, which led her to appreciate and develop such a wide range of musical genres.

In order to gain greater experience and exposure, Tria then moved to Manila and launched what has become a very successful career. Since those days, Tria has traveled far and wide for both pleasure and in pursuit of her work.

Her travels have taken her to virtually all continents of the world adding greatly to her experience both as a vocalist and as a person, and she now spends her non-working leisure time between the US and UK, as well as in her native Philippines.

She has entertained audiences on luxury cruise liners as well as in 5 star hotels of Asia, Europe, North America and Australasia. She has performed in far reaching and exotic places in the South Pacific, such as French Polynesia, Fiji Islands and The Kingdom of Tonga.

A wonderful, smooth and powerful voice is complemented by her natural beauty and graceful elegance, which captures an audience with her remarkable presence. With such an impeccable style, Tria’s performances ensure that a warm, intimate ambience is always present and enhances both the sound and vision experience to the full.

It is fair to say that her ideal choice of music is mainstream jazz, but great versatility enables her to equally perform and feel at home with Pop, Blues, Broadway, Country, Dance, and standard Ballads with a repertoire that spans seven decades of music.

Extensive travel has assisted Tria in learning to sing in many different languages, enabling her to entertain and charm multicultural audiences in Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Indonesian, Tahitian as well as her native Filipino tongue.

Tria launched her first album, a jazz one called Wanderlust in January 2012, fulfilling a long held dream which is to make a very professional, quality album featuring classic jazz songs and performed along with renowned international musicians.

As the choice of title suggests, the tracks selected for the album readily affirms the life that Tria has experienced and enjoys whilst allowing her to sing in several languages having appeal to a global audience.

The tracks, personally selected by Tria, are from a list of her long time favorites and she is accompanied by several well known vocalists and musicians from Asia and Europe. The featured artists are Moreno Donadel, an Italian jazz/classical pianist, Asia’s premiere vocal group The CompanY, renowned Filipino songwriter and crooner Jose Mari Chan and Aquarela, a bossa/latin group.

The album contains an original track, Magkikita Pa Rin Naman Tayo, a very melodic and moving song written specially for Tria by the Producer of the Album, Moy Ortiz of the The CompanY.

In between continuing to perform internationally in shows, concerts and gigs, Tria has plans for new albums, which will further add to her reputation as a very talented, beautiful vocalist with a mesmerizing and distinctive voice.
