James Reid entered the spotlight as an actor in the 2010s, moving into music soon after and releasing his debut self-titled album in 2013. He launched his own record label, Careless, in 2017, and released his third studio album ‘Palm Dreams’ under the label. Reid is also set to perform for the Overpass Music Festival virtual event the same day as GigaFest.
Nadine Lustre rose to fame in the late 2000s and early 2010s as a member of girl group Pop Girls. Since the group’s disbandment in 2013, Lustre has transitioned into acting, while continuing to pursue a solo career in music.
Philippines’ “Soul Supreme’ KZ Tandingan first gained prominence in the country in 2012 when she was crowned the inaugural winner of X Factor Philippines. Tandingan most recently appeared on ABS-CBN Music International’s all-female charity single, ‘Heal’.
Curtismith burst onto the scene in 2015 with the release of his mixtape, ‘Ideal’, followed by two highly successful EPs, ‘Falling Forward’ in 2016, and ‘Soully Yours’ in 2017. Curtismith has often been praised for his unique blend of hip-hop and indie styles.
