Erik Santos on becoming icon

erik santosMANILA, Philippines — Singer Erik Santos acknowledges that he and his contemporaries will have a harder time becoming icons compared with their predecessors.

“In the ‘80s especially, a single is played on radio for as long as two years kaya its singer stays in people’s mind. These days, three months pa lang ay pinapalitan na ang single,” he noted during the press conference for his concert at the Music Museum on <sAug. 13 and 18 (correction note: Aug 12 and 13) titled “PowER IKons.”

The so-called Prince of Pop believes that the best way for singers, especially the newbies, to make their mark is to offer a unique sound or singing style. He said that mimicking other singers is only okay for those who are starting out and that anyone who is serious with his craft must eventually leave this phase behind.

What showbiz has taught Erik

The Philippine Star – July 29, 2011

Eight years in the business has taught Erik Santos a lot about nurturing his craft which includes striking a balance between using intelligence and instinct when making career decisions.

Although criticized by some in the beginning for sounding like his musical influence Martin Nievera, Erik has moved on to establish a distinct identity in the music scene. This he did by coming up with original hits that showcased his own style, and by taking on projects that challenged him.

Meanwhile, whenever he’d do covers whether in shows or on record, he would insist on having the musical arrangement deconstructed then fashioned differently from the original so as to “own” them.

“But I’m not saying it’s wrong to emulate your idols in the beginning. It’s natural for any newbie to do that. What would count as a mistake is to stay there and refuse to grow as an artist,” he said.

erik santosMANILA, Philippines – Erik Santos has set a goal of holding one concert a year as he approaches the first decade of his music career. Despite his awareness of the current concert climate’s favoritism toward foreign artists, he hopes to meet this goal by producing his own shows via his Core Events company.

“It’s hard nowadays. As Regine Velasquez told me during my last concert, only one out of 10 locally produced shows is being watched by concertgoers. This has been discouraging local producers,” said the 29-year-old balladeer in a presscon last Tuesday, adding that this is why he no longer relies on other producers to mount his shows, including his two-day concert series on August.

But pareho kami ni Angeline na career ang focus. But we’re friends. In September, we’ll go together to Europe to do a six-city tour for TFC.”

erik santos AYAW naming maniwala na until now ay loveless pa rin ang Prince of Pop na si Erik Santos. Pero dahil sa ‘yun ang paulit-ulit na sinabi niya sa amin during our interview para sa nalalapit niyang concert on August 12 ((Friday) and 13 (Saturday) sa Music Museum entitled “PowER IKons,” e, ‘di sige.

Aminado naman si Erik na napaka-choosy naman daw kasi niya when it comes sa babaing mamahalin niya. Kaya nga siguro ‘di ganu’n kabilis main-love ang multi-platinum singing champion.
