Last August 17, new singer Hannah Nolasco launched her 12-track album titled Peksman. Inspired by her family, especially by her father, Hannah said she wants to share her talent and narrate her personal experiences through her songs. Everyone has dreams. This is not just a dream of mine, but a goal that I am determined to achieve – and I won’t give up.’
“Sobrang blessed ko po. Nagkaroon po ako ng family na sobrang supportive and nagkaroon ako ng album at a young age,” she shared during her album launch at the Hard Rock Café.
The album’s carrier single, “Peksman,” is a story about a teen who’s head-over-heels in love with her crush. Other tracks included in the album are “Inlab,” “Dito Lang Ako,” “Torpe,” “Save Our Future,” “Thank You Lord,” “Tinamaan Ako,” “Ouch Naman,” “Paano Naman Ako,” “I-like Mo Naman Ako,” “Havey at Waley,” and “If I.” All songs on Hannah’s album were written by composer Boy Christopher Ramos, Jr.
Hannah, who had singing lessons as a child, idolizes Pop Star Royalty Sarah Geronimo. “Sobrang favorite ko po yung kanta niyang ‘To Love You More,’” she revealed.
The aspiring star, who also celebrated her 16th birthday at the launch, said she wishes to have a steady following and a longstanding singing career.
Hannah Nolasco, the 16-year-old daughter of retired Air Force Col. Ricardo Nolasco Jr., has just launched her 12-track debut album “Peksman,” and by the sound of it, she is ready to grab a piece of the spotlight.
But first, a bit of rewind: Hannah’s passion for music started when she was three years old. With support from his father, she enrolled at the Center for Pop Music Philippines Inc., going on to become among privileged mentees of the renowned Maestro Ryan Cayabyab. She further honed her skills under Trumpets Playshop.
In turn, her father said that bankrolling the album is his way of bringing Hannah closer to her dreams.Asked what she hopes to achieve in show business, Hannah said she wants to inspire people her age to go for their goals.
“Peksman” is like a diary of sorts that musically chronicles her journey.
“I wanted to capture these years of my life on an album while they still represent what I am going through,” Hannah says in a release, adding, “I never choose a song that I can’t relate to in some way, shape, or form. My music will always reflect who I am and what I believe in.”
