Some artists out there are simply trying to entertain an audience, while other performers approach their craft with a higher vision: sharing a message with the audience, truly connecting with listeners while expressing themselves and their beliefs.
Hi, this is Cocoy Claravall, Indie Christian Songwriter, collaborating with my good friend Paul Tagle, who sings most of my compositions.
I started writing these songs when I was in high school, back in the eighties. This was in the cool city of pines called Baguio City. Those who are not familiar, this is the summer capital of the Philippines. I found a lot of inspiration among the trees, the mountains, the cool breeze, and I guess just by being near the sky.
As I graduated, and began working in Manila, I continued to write, though not as often as I wanted to. Today, I am happy man, married to my lovely wife Glenn, and three great kids – Tommie, Robbie, and Raffie.
Although I have built my career in the tech industry today, music continues to be my passion. And so as long as I am here, I will share this talent and hopefully inspire others along the way. My personal mission is to be able to bring as many souls back to Heaven.
If you want to use these songs, or record and sing it yourself, do let me know. You can reach me via email at email@example.com.
To those who collaborated with me – Au Macatangay, Rey Armstrong, Paul Tagle, and the FOM band, a big thank you!
Mabuhay ang OPM and to God be all the glory!
