“Mangangarap na lamang ba na mahagkan ka
O may pag-asa pa na bumalik tayo sa umpisa?”
These lines are lifted from young singer-songwriter Jensen Gomez’s debut single Umpisa. The poignant song talks about a man’s longing to have a restart with his lady love. The single will be part of his soon-to-be-released album, also entitled Umpisa under Universal Records.
The song Umpisa opened many doors for Jensen, because it is through this song that Universal Records and management group Orion Entertainment discovered him.
“Umpisa is one special song for me because it is the first Filipino song I have written,” shares Jensen. “Luckily, the reception to the song has been overwhelming. I am excited to make people hear new versions of the song including a duet cut of the song.”
Jensen started his music career five years ago, playing for gigs around town, slowly making a name for himself and building his audience.
“Playing music is my vehicle to express my personal mishaps, experiences, stupidity,” says the young singer-songwriter. “I hope my music will make you feel that you are the only one who is experiencing stuff- heartbreaks, and heartaches. There is, after all, safety in numbers.”
Umpisa was also picked to be the theme song of the movie MNL 143.
Umpisa is also the title of the soon-to-be-released full-length album of Jensen, which will be launched this February 1, 8 p.m., Saguijo, Makati City. The launch will also feature performances from She’s Only Sixteen, Mayonnaise, Carlos Castano, young singer-actress Tippy Dos Santos (who performed a duet of Umpisa with Jensen in the album) and former Rivermaya vocalist Jason Fernandez.
