Champ Says OPM Is Gonna Be Alright! What Do YOU Think?

Is OPM really dead? Music piracy, lack of corporate support and the decline of album sales are just some of the issues still confronting our struggling Pinoy musicians. MYXph wonders what home grown artist Champ Lui Pio thinks of the current state of our local music industry.
Champ notes that the contribution of the new breed of talents emerging in the scene is essential. "I think slowly, there's a new crop of musicians who are introducing a different flavor that the OPM scene hasn't seen before," he said. "That's good 'cause young people are stepping up and trying to contribute to the development and the uplifting of the scene," he added. 

Champ is hopeful that it won't be long before the Philippine music industry gets healthy again. "That's my belief as a musician and a manager," says the former Hale front man who currently handles the career of Somedaydream. "We're trying to spearhead the new breed of musicians who will... open the floodgates and hopefully everyone else will follow then everyone else will benefit," he said.

    Ang mga OPM artists ba gumawa ng "fighting song" para sa athletes na sasabak sa Olympics??? Buti pa `yong ibang bansa, kahit sa kanta pinapakita `yong support nila para sa athletes.

    OPM is alright... The thing is, mas mabilis ang mata kaysa sa tainga. OPM artists doesn't have a good visual. Kung ico-compare sa international artists... Pero sabi nga music ang pinopromote. Bakit, hindi ba puwedeng maging pogi at maganda ang mga kumakanta at nasa banda? Kahit ano pang galing mo kumanta kung mukha ka naman snatcher sa kanto... Haha! Hindi naman masama kung iiimprove ang sarili. Part ng investment iyon.
