Here are Four Homegrown Artists Joining Warner Music Philippines’ Roster for 2020


Warner Music Philippines shared that it is stepping back into the direction of honing homegrown talent this year, taking in four new signed artists under its wing. Celebrated and upcoming talents, Quest, St. Wolf, Keiko Necesario, and Leanne & Naara at the tailend of 2019.

Ian Monsod, Managing Director of Warner Music Philippines noted, “It has always been the company’s thrust to be on the lookout for great talent in music among local artists and abroad. This year felt like the perfect time for us to bring our focus on building a roster of artists that deserve to be heard here and in international shores.”

He adds, “We have always kept our relationship with Filipino talent in tact throughout the years, but we want to bring our efforts in joining these artists in their journey to achieving their fullest potential.”

In recognizing each their individuality and mark, Warner Music has also empowered talents in their roster with an ongoing learning to elevate their musicality and artistry from local training to overseas immersions and education.
