A creative’s work is never on hold, even when you’re over 15 thousand kilometres away from home!

Whilst on holiday in Los Angeles, California in June, Philip stumbled across the Instagram profile of local music producer, Nick Kandler who operates Stonewood Sound, along with two other producers Cris Lopez and Chase Granat. It was Kandler’s specialty in pop, RnB, Electronic, and Rock that drew Philip’s attention.

After a small courtship, the musicians spent two days at Stonewood working on three tracks to be released in the new year. The first, Paradise, was written by Philip in March after he purchased his first piano – the inspiration struck him, and so Paradise was borne. Kandler quickly composed a beat, which perfectly articulated Philip’s style – it was 3am before they knew it!

“By far the highlight of my trip to Los Angeles,” says Philip La Rosa. “I can’t wait for people to hear what we made together!”

Paradise is set for release in early 2020.
