Time has proven that a sibling collaboration can work with great success especially when it comes to music. Take for example The Moffatts, The Osmonds, The Corrs, The Carpenters and The Jacksons among others. Now following suit is a team up between two brothers DJ and Micah Lamar a.k.a as THE LAMARS.
The Lamars are set to show sibling power as they release their debut EP ôKung Puede Langö under MCA Music. It features the carrier single of the same title which was written by Urbandub vocalist Gabby Alipe. ôKung Puede Langö also includes DJÆs own composition ôLove You Moreö as well as their versions of the 90s hit ôSomedayö by Sugar Ray and Honor SocietyÆs ôWhere Are You Nowö from the year 2009. Those who are curious to hear ôKung Puede langö unplugged or rocked out will never be disappointed as acoustic and rock versions are likewise in the EP.
ôWe are so excited and honored that we were given a chance to record this EP and with a major label at that,ö DJ said.
With this mini-album, their purpose is simple.
ôWe hope to inspire and put smile on faces of people through our music,ö Micah said. These goodlooking brothers may physically look foreign but are certainly homegrown talents from Lucena City.
Sons of Christian missionaries, the Lamar siblings live in a farm ranch taking care of 40 orphans. Their love for people is synonymous to their love for music. To date, they have written 30 original songs and still counting. Their compositions talk about life, faith and love, all from the eyes of this young generation called youthùsomething everyone their age can relate to.
They were first spotted by Cornerstone Talent Management (currently handling artists like Richard Poon, Krissy & Ericka, Sam Milby among others) singing at a church in Alabang and the rest is history. A stint at ABS-CBNÆs Sunday variety show ASAP, acting debut as Sam MilbyÆs bandmates in the primetime soap ôIdolö also from the same channel and now mainstays at TV5Æs teen show ôFantastikö followed. A check on YouTube will see their uploaded videos of them singing their current favorites.
Their musical influences include Stephen Curtis Chapman, Michael Jackson, John Mayer. Jonas Brothers, Jason Mraz, Daughtry, Dean Martin and Stevie Wonder.
Indeed, with their handsome looks with voices to match, DJ & Micah a.k.a The Lamars are the new sibling acts to watch out this year and for years to come.
The LamarsÆ ôKung Puede Langö is now out in CDs under MCA Music. Catch them on August 21 at Robinsons Sta. Rosa, October 9 at Robinsons Pampanga and October 16 at Robinsons Metro East.
