III of A Kind, The Album

          The album is about the musical journey of III of A Kind as it grows into its unique singing style. It could also be called a crossover album as the group acknowledges its roots by singing a capella and heads towards the strains of pop, R & B and funk-flavored dance.

     III of A Kind realized its dream with the help of able producer Aji Manalo. numeorus demos were made and presented, brainstorming sessions lasted for hours at the digital project studio where the group and its producer harnessed their creative energy.

          The album project developed as friends and peers of  III of A Kind contributed their talent and expertise. Songs by Ryan Cayabyan, Jungee Marcelo, Ernani Cuenco, Onie Almario and members Gelo Francisco and Annie Nepomuceno made their way to the album. Arrangers Marc Lopez, Bong Adela, Zebedee Zuniga, Vic Oria and Yoyong Nalasa helped put the grooves together. Needless to say, almost all fastfood delivery franchises sustained the album in production.

          III of A Kind wanted to make a souvenir for the audiences who have seen them perform live. Thus several a capella cuts, originally meant for live performances by the trio, are presented as such. This is because amidst the boogying and shimmying in their get-down-to-the-groove shows, their a capella rendition of "Paalam Na," originally by Rachel Alejandro, is still the group's most requested song. The group remakes the Cayabyab classic "How Can I" in a more 90's style a capella.

          The group apparently inspired songwriter Jungee Marcelo to write the pop tune "Isang Ngiti Mo Lang." "Love is in the Air" was a demo produced by Aji Manalo in Boston, penned by colleague Onie Almario. And, during provincial sojourns, waiting time was not wasted as "Pag-usapan" and "Tibok" were born. "Nahan" and "Brasil" are favorites since the group's early days, thus grounding the repertoire of the album III of A Kind.
