April 21 2021
For Kapuso Soul Balladeer Garrett Bolden, vulnerability was the key to composing his latest single "Our Love" under GMA Music.
The former The Clash season one finalist talked about his inspiration for his song with Papa Obet on Sikat.
Garrett revealed that he worked on this song for only a few hours and he feels elated that people now get to hear his own work
He noted, “My newest single is a song na talagang sobrang malapit sa puso ko, this is the first time na naka-compose ako ng song na kumbaga na-published para marinig ng mga Kapuso.”
“Well actually Papa Obet, madalas naman ako magsulat ng mga song, pero kadalasan hindi ako natatapos.
“Pero ito kasi nung time na ‘to, I think three, four hours nagawa ko siya. Nakaupo lang ako sa bahay, tapos as in nakapatay lahat, hindi ako gumamit ng phone or anything, talagang [I channeled] ‘yung nararamdaman ko that time and nabuo ko itong song.”
"Our Love" is a heartwarming song that was inspired and dedicated to Garrett Bolden’s late father.
According to him, he was scheduled to visit his dad’s grave in the United States last year, but it didn’t push through because of this pandemic.
The Kapuso singer shared, “Well actually, it all started when I felt nami-miss ko ‘yung tatay ko, kasi I was supposed to go to his libingan, before the pandemic.
“Kaya lang naabutan ng pandemic, so I wasn't able to go, kasi nasa States ‘yung daddy ko para mabisita ko sana siya.
“Pero, at that time kasi nung pandemic na-lockdown ako mag-isa, so kumbaga ilang buwan ‘yun naka-lockdown lang, wala talaga ako kasama.”
Garrett added, “So naging vulnerable ako na that time na-mimiss ko ‘yung daddy ko. Doon ko naisip na sana ‘yung mga times noon nandiyan pa siya, parang ganun. Hanggang sa nag-build up na lang, siyempre andiyan na rin ‘yung experiences ko din sa life, tapos ‘yung mga nakukuwento rin ng mga kaibigan ko siyempre, nag-build up na lang ‘yung emotions.
“Pero, nag-start ‘yun nung nami-miss ko ‘yung daddy ko.”
