Lead Singers Must Bring the House Down
Eleandre Basino Buendia or popularly known as Ely Buendia was the lead singer of the Filipino rock band in 90’s. He is a musician, writer, director and a songwriter and lead singer as well. For his many talents and skills he lifted his band to fame and popularity. This lead singer was born in Naga city. He learned the Kundiman through his mother and started to play guitar at the age of seven. He has seen musical abilities and skills by his mother. And so, his musical career began when he was in elementary and prospered during his college days.
The lead singer was enrolled at University of the Philippines who is a Film major at the College of Mass Communication. He formed the group with Ely Buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala and Marcus Adoro. Originally, they were all from different bands and suddenly they found each other and the rest is history. Their song “Pare Ko” is viral inside U.P. Diliman campus and has been contagious gradually outside the campus.
Ely has worked on BMG records Pilipinas (now Sony BMG Music Entertainment). At daytime, he was a working student at the BMG and writes songs for the band at night. Their songs has caught the attention of BMG A&R director Vic Valenciano and gave Eraserheads song a try and in 1992 signed a three-year record deal. Their debut album “Ultramegneticpop!” received sextuple platinum award. Their next albums also became viral and hit many charts. The popularity of this band has gone international. They had series of tours around Asia and U.S. and made the band become the most popular band in the country at that time.
The lead singer confirmed leaving the band on March, 2002. After sometime, he said to interviews that business matters is the cause of the band’s break up. The band members weren’t surprised at all because there have been some occasions that the band has disbanded but did not. They disbanded peacefully and said that their band is getting old and let the other bands shine.
Personally, Eraserheads is a legendary band with its songs that really captivated the hearts of Filipinos. Until now, their songs are memorized by most teens and young adults. Their music has never gone and so they are still remembered by their fans. I personally like the songs as the lead singer because of his nationalism and being creative for the lyrics. The lead singer is respected and claimed as a music icon.
The lead singer became a music icon in the music industry because of his compositions. It has gained recognitions, acclaims and critics but nonetheless it gained fame and popularity as a lead singer and also for the band. The band has been an inspiration for most bands and they wanted to reach the fame that the Eraserheads have gained.
