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.
I recently got a beautiful package in the post:
PRINTMISS is your friendly little paper goods store. They make personalized stationery, note cards, invitations, gift tags, labels and more.
They are also proudly Philippine-based. But as you can see, these cards look like something straight out of Etsy.
If it’s anything I’m a sucker for, it’s DIY, and paper. I love paper so much I DIYed all my wedding invitations, giveaways, and programmes.
So it’s kind of inevitable that I love Printmiss.
I just ordered these beautiful modern vintage notecards from them. They haven’t arrived in the mail yet but I’ll definitely take pictures! What could be sweeter than seeing your own name on these precious cards? So pretty ♥
Their main site with all their designs is on wordpress:
But they’re just as easily contacted for orders on facebook:
Amazing classic, vintage, elegant designs. Shades of Martha Stewart’s beautiful crafts but 100% Filipina-made by Ina Amor-Mejia.
She’s such a stickler for detail that even her packaging is exquisite, something I admire and value in any shop owner or crafter.
There are absolutely gorgeous modern designs too. How genius is it to put your name inside these trendy animal-print ballerinas? Ughhh I want all the designs, plz.
These are just notecards, but Printmiss makes wedding invitations, gift tags, and a score of other paper goods. The only limit is your imagination. I love the fact that there’s a Filipina-owned shop that allows you to DIY your wedding, birthday, debut or event invites. I wish this had existed when I was planning my wedding. :(

Don’t be boxed in by boring designs by boring print shops. Check out Printmiss and unleash your creativity!
