Woot! Congrats to PolyEast Records and some of my favorite OPM artists! :)

Ako Na Lang,” the same song which proclaimed Quizon as one of this generation’s rarest commodity, also won the Song of the Year for songwriter Jungee Marcelo and Quizon’s single “Simple Girl” for Best Engineered Recording for Nikki Cunanan.

Both songs culled from Quizons’s self-titled album released by PolyEast Records which also reached its Gold Record status last March 2012. Recently, Quizon is promoting her latest single “So Much In Love” while PolyEast Records announces the release of Quizon’s sophomore album slated 2013.

Bamboo Manalac, another PolyEast Records’ pride, also graced the night with a closing number with his latest single “In this Life” and took the Best Performance by a Male Recording Artist award for his song "Questions." The former front man released his solo album called “No Water, No Moon” last November 2011 and also produced the songs “Ikot ng Mundo” and “Spin”.
