Rising Singer-Songwriter grentperez Unveils New EP 'Trail Mix Tape'

MUMBAI: Filipino-Australian indie singer-songwriter grentperez releases his newest project 'Trail Mix Tape', an eclectic mix of four songs, via Fast Friends. Accompanying the project is a visual for the single “Day By Day”.

On 'Trail Mix Tape', grentperez explores new sonics and production, while continuing to perfect his “laid back chill sound with a lot of soul.” The new project also includes recent singles like joyous “Wishful Thinking”, heartfelt “Don’t Grow Up Too Fast”, and the upbeat “Ego”. All of the tracks on the record were written by grentperez, with additional writing, and producing credits that include Dan Henig (Jax 'Victoria's Secret', ZAYN, G-Eazy, Noah Cyrus), and GRAMMY-nominated Linden Jay (2 x US Platinum Doja Cat 'Woman', Erick The Architect, Joji, Flatbush Zombies).

"I wanted to collect some of my favorite songs that I’ve written recently and turn them into a ‘collective’ rather than being scattered as singles. Thought it’d be a fun way to go about doing things. So in a way, it serves itself with the Tape title being ‘Trail Mix’, it’s just a bag of goods, you got a Sad Song, Love Song, Rap/ RnB style track and a fun indie rock type beat in there," grentperez shares of the EP release.

Music lulls us into a meditative state. It allows us to relax, reflect, and, ultimately, recharge. Sydney born singer, songwriter, artist and producer grentperez unlocks this place whether in the studio, on stage, or under the watchful eye of the computer camera in his childhood bedroom where he’s recorded most of his music to date.
