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. People find their convos funny.
She is not a professional blogger, but this is the space she compiles current obsessions in, like
dyeing her hair
crocheting stuff for her facebook shop Hats and Things
and the occasional lulz-worthy photo.
