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.
cutenabulilit asked: Hi ate Jad :) Tanong lang po. Regular po kasi akong nag b-bleach ng hair, pero this sembreak nag bleach ako (kasi nagpa black ako nung pasukan po) tapos yung mga bagong tubo na hair lang may kulay.. Bakit po ganun. Dati naman hindi kahit nag pa black ako ng hair :( Help po :(
Hi, medyo di ko gets yung question. Dati nagdye ka ng black. Nagbleach ka, then nagcolor ka, and yung bagong tubong hair lang ang may kulay, tama ba? If that’s what you meant, it might be that damaged na ang previous growth mo, kaya hindi na maghold ng color. That means blown out na ang hair follicles so the color just slips out, di kumakapit. :(
titsandwishfuldreams asked: I have virgin black Asian hair. I want like a purple/lavender ombre. How do you think I should go about that?
I suggst you create a gradient that causes the least damage, going black from the top of your head, then dark purple midlengths, then lighter purple tips. That way the gradient works and you only need to bleach your tips full strength, your midlength half-strength.
Anonymous asked: Hi, Jad! Planning to bleach my hair this sem break, but I'm really scared that it might end up being orange ;A; Did your hair turn orange the first time you bleached it? Anyway, my real question is about toning. What's a decent substitute to blue/violet dyes/shampoo so I could get rid of the brassiness? They're all imported and I don't plan on making a PayPal account anytime soon so I could pay for stuff on Ebay. Thanks for the help!
1. Yes, my hair turned orange when I first bleached it. Here’s the 10 stages of decolorization so you can visualize it better.
2. To get rid of brassiness, you need a counteracting pigment of some sort to neutralize your current color. Take note this doesn’t work if your hair isn’t light enough. If your hair is orangey, find a blue or violet pigment, mix it in your conditioner and hope for the best. :) By the way, there are lots of instagram & sulit.ph sellers in the phils that now carry Manic Panic, Directions, Special Effects and Splat. Do a search! :)
on instagram try
They tend to be a little more expensive though, than if you just order direct from ebay. Good luck!
bombshellsunited asked: Hi! I just found your blog and it answered so many of my hair dying questions :D Anyway, heres my question: I got my hair tips bleached once (virgin Asian hair) and now I have medium brown/orange tips. ; n ; So how light does my hair have to be to tone it, so I can use semi-permanent dye on it? :D
Harro! Glad my blog helped you out. :D
Medium brown orange tips can work if you’re using: bright pinks, oranges, reds, strong purples and warm colors.
They might not work so great with: greens, blues, turquoises, and other cool colors. <==you’d need another bleach session (try a bleach bath) before toning.
How light your hair needs to be before toning really depends on what color you want. most people bleach to a brassy yellow then tone. So, what color do you plan to put on?
