Generating well-deserved buzz in the independent music scene with the release of their debut album “inner play”, boasting to be the first OPM double vinyl release on 45 rpm, APARTEL braves the paradox of the “supergroup”, breaking the listener’s expectations of its’ members histories. Fusing soul, funk, blues, and the right amount of crooner-ism — Apartel penetrates moods from excitement to heartbreak, all cruising under the umbrella of rock n roll. Fronted by Filipino music icon Ely Buendia and dynamite jazz cat Rj Pineda (keyboards) complimenting each other on vocal duties — and backed by a strong assembly of players, a veritable wrecking crew with Coco Coo and Redge Concepcion (guitars), Jun Lazo (bass), Pat Sarabia (drums), Deej Rodriguez (percussion), the mighty members of Brass Pas Pas Pas (horns) and the “Double D” sisters Donna and Diane Sagun (back up vocals), this is one band that will not go unnoticed.
