Listen to my band's entire discography here.
Check out one of my music videos below!
Jad Montenegro is musician and all-around bag lady. The music started out with Jad playing solo acoustic acts in Davao after moving here from Manila. She hosted two rock shows called Muzika del Sur and Durian Shake.
She eventually met and formed a band with drummer Dave Ibao and bassist Pjoe Sabanpan, who were both involved with their own bands at the time.
Prior to forming a band, Jad won Best Pop Artist in 2009 at the Muzika Del Sur Awards, and Best Music Video in 2010 for her song The Backyard.
They have since won other awards and been featured in a number of magazines and publications, notably Pulp Magazine and the Philippine Daily Inquirer. They were also artist of the month for Radio Republic, Davao Music Nation, Lieu Magazine, and altMNL.
In 2012 they were joined by Eric Luzada (lead guitar) and Carlo Garcia (drums). Dave Ibao shifted instruments (from drums to lead guitar).
The band is now composed of:
Jad Montenegro - guitar, vocals
Dave Ibao - guitar, backing vocals
Eric Luzada - lead guitar
Pjoe Sabanpan - bass
Garcia - drums, backing vocals
The band released their first EP Fixed Points and Pendulums on June 22, 2012.
They released their second EP Detours on June 23, 2013.

To support her bad habits, like playing gigs for free and producing indie albums, Jad works from home as a writer and graphic artist. She is married to professional comic illustrator John Amor, a.k.a The Boy.
Anonymous asked: hi ate jad!! i love ur music and ur poems. I first heard ur poems at kanto bar during taboan. anyway I wanted to ask how u colored ur hair blue green? I do the coloring of my own hair kasi and I cant find a blue green color. I was wondering if u mixed some colors to get the blue green color? :) hihihi. thank yooouuu
Harro! :) Thank you!
To get a blue green color you just need to put on a true blue dye over bleached blonde hair. It has to be light, bleached and blonde. An orange base won’t work, a brown base won’t work. Dyes act like a stain, or like watercolors when mixed together. So blue dye on a blonde base will create a blue green color. Sometimes my base is too yellow and I get a green, so I redye with a layer of diluted blue to make that color lean towards the cooler spectrum. However, blue-green is a hard color to maintain, you will need to touch up every few showers as the blue will wash off and you will keep ending up with a green. HTH!
(I use Directions lagoon blue diluted with conditioner. I also dye several times using very diluted formulations to get the final color that I want.)
Also, if your base is white, you can mix alpine green and lagoon blue, but if it was me I would totally just use Directions Turquoise. I haven’t though, since I only bleach to a blonde and never to a white.

Anonymous asked: Hey-o, Jad! My hair needs some protein-loving rn and I'm kind of lost when it comes to protein treatments. LOL. Any good treatments (as in like a deep conditioner or something, not in a salon) :))) Thankies! <3
hai! Virgin coconut oil is the way to go! :) I use it before I bleach, for deep conditioning and pretty much when I feel that my hair needs protein. Let it soak in your hair for a couple of hours or all night if you can stand it. Protein treatments CAN make your hair dry, but that goes away when you condition again with a regular conditioner. Take note using natural oils can strip hair of color.
Myself, I mix virgin coconut oil with my conditioner so it’s not so slippery and leave it in my hair for about 2 hours. I do that when my hair starts feeling dry.
