Q. Introduce yourself to a new fan or a person who is interested in learning more about you.
Kice: Hi, I'm Kice. You might know me from Idol PH Season 2. I like to perform and write songs. I used to be a simple island boy, but now I'm living my dreams here in the city.
Q. What's it like to be in Idol Ph and what's your musical experience been like?
Kice: Idol PH was a roller coaster journey. I've had a lot of challenges along the way, but I also had a lot of fun since I was doing what I love. Music-wise, I've really learned a lot from the judges, the band, and of course, my fellow hopefuls. I've picked up on new techniques, and I was inspired to try out new things and get out of my comfort zone.
Q. As a musician, what inspires you to create new music? How do you tap into your creativity to come up with fresh, original tunes?
Kice: As a musician, a lot of things actually inspire me to create new music, and I think that versatility is really important in this industry. Random things, places, and people can spark the most creative ideas I have, but I might still be biased when it comes to the beach because it's where I grew up. Whenever I'm at the beach, everything just seems to flow and I don't really have to put much effort into thinking of something new to write.
Q. What is your favorite and least favorite part about being a musician?
Kice: My favorite part about being a musician is getting to inspire people and entertain them. My least favorite part however is the pressure or bashing I get sometimes because of certain standards or expectations, but it's a part of my job and I just see it as a chance for me to improve.
Q. Who would be the next artist (local or international) you would like to work with?
Kice: Taylor Swift, definitely.
Q: How do you want to be remembered in the music scene locally and globally?
Kice: I want to be remembered as the artist who wasn't afraid to do different things. I want to be the artist who took risks and kept learning.
Q. You can only play one artist's album for the whole year, what would it be and why?
Kice: Ed Sheeran's X (multiply) album.
Q. If you had a choice between two superpowers, being invisible or flying, which would you choose?
Q. What's your message to your fans?
Kice: I love you guys so much and I appreciate each and every single one of you for all the support you've been showering me with since day 1. I can't thank you all enough. I hope I'm making you proud. Can't wait to see you all again soon!
