Stay Awake: Fugu Musk Debut EP Launch

Stay Awake was written and produced by Raf de los Reyes, a local independent musician. His band, Fugu Musk, is ready to show their debut EP to the world.

₱82,000.00 funding goal
54 backers
101% funded

Stay Awake is the first EP to be released by my band, Fugu Musk. It consists of six songs that were recorded, mixed, and mastered using the bare-bones equipment I own. Despite this, I am quite thrilled with what I have come up with and I am more than excited to share it with everyone. It took me three months of hard work to fine-tune these songs about wistful love, loneliness, crippling self-doubt, restless living, the inevitability of growing up, and the constant search for a place to belong in this world. If you find yourself aimlessly wandering around empty city streets, laying down in grassy fields looking at the stars, or sitting in forests with towering trees, I hope that Stay Awake accompanies you with the neverending hums and murmurs of waking life.

With your support, we will perform the songs from the EP live. These are songs I thought would never reach beyond my bedroom walls. This EP launch is the beginning of so much more opportunities and we are going all-out. The event will be held on October 13, a Friday, at 7pm in the time-honored Mow’s Bar. There will be other artists performing including Yūrei, Kaleidoscope Eyes, and Perkywasted, to name a few. This will be an event that celebrates the talent and creativity of local artists. Back this project and swing by to show your support for the music of local independent artists.

Music has always been my passion. It is my way to connect to people as I express in music and lyrics the emotions I cannot otherwise verbalize. I tell a story through the music I compose -- through the lyrics and the music itself. It is a story that I think every listener becomes part of as they understand my music through their own experiences.

I learned how to play the drums at the age of seven, the guitar at the age of twelve. I worked hard and taught myself how to record, mix, and master everything. I started Fugu Musk about seven years ago with friends who have since have moved on to pursue other interests. Eventually, my good friends joined the band -- Riggs Chanco on bass and Rodge Chanco on drums. I have performed shows in malls and also multiple school-sponsored events, like in school fairs and proms. Recently, I’ve been performing in open mic nights as a one-man band in preparation for the release of this EP.

Moving Forward. With this funding, I plan to pour any profit I would gain right back into my music. I still have a long way to go, but I want to keep producing and performing music for as long as the road goes.
