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.
Check out my Black Outlined Teal Nails!
Now, seeing as I have stubby guitar playing sausages instead of real fingers, I don’t always get a chance to experiment with nail designs.
Seeing as I barely have any nail real estate lol, I usually stick with simple designs that don’t take forever to do (also because I’ll probably ruin them the next day at band prax anyway).
This one seemed like an easy design to do for short nails so I took pics!
1 bright color (some tealy color from LA Disco Brites)
1 opaque black polish (Caronia)
1 opaque black striper (Sassy)
1 clear top coat (Revlon)
Cover entire nail in black polish:
Wait for black polish to dry completely before applying 2nd color.
Don’t worry if it looks like crud, you can fix it with the next coat. The trick is to leave a black outline all around. If you mess up, you can fix it with the striper. Look, mine doesn’t look all that great either :|
2nd coat looks much better!
Of course, since I am ME, that means a bit of a mess. Fixed it with a black striper to make the outline neater.
Finish off with top coat so your kyot nails don’t get ruined!
Then go watch Community/Girls/Supernatural/Sherlock/Fringe. Do it. DO. IT.
I wanted a change from my usual garage photos, so:
Doc Marten boots, vintage print skirt, top from Next, Hawaiian Hill glasses,and I bought that necklace from one of those stalls on the street that sell clay necklaces on leather cords, from a man with colorful dreadlocks.
I just finished making these:
I’m so pleased with how they turned out that I’m making a DIY tutorial! :) It’s for people who are considering stretching their ears but want to see if gauges suit them first.
All I know is, I like how they look on me! <3
