Breaking Away From The Facade Of The Usual, TERA Wants To Bring A Higher Dosage Of Entertainment

From the management that brought the PPOP girl group CALISTA,  Merlion Events Production Inc. and Tyronne Escalante Artist Management launched a new musical talent under its wing with TERA who is expected to bring elevated levels of entertainment and performance with songs that she written and produced. 

Though still a college student, Tera is now officially presented to the media to showcase her songs, dance and entertaining  performance on stage. She currently has three songs, “Façade” “Sa Dilim,” and "Higher Dosage."

She had a debut performance at the Vax To Normal concert with Calista which she also sang some fo her songs in public for the first time. Tera is also an interesting choice as it is the latin word for earth, which might mean groundbreaking or a very sturdy personality which can also allow things to grow to incredible things.

Her song “Façade” shows her versatility as a singer being her initial single to be performed and makes an impact that she is not the usual artist out there. With the introduction of her new single "Higher Dosage," she deals with a song that has darker theme and lyrics yet still making it a tune many can enjoy listening. She also has a Filipino song called "Sa Dilim," which is has a dance vibe that can also has that PPOP charm.

“‘Higher Dosage’ is a song I wrote in 2019. No matter what your age, gender, or nationality is, everyone has a struggle that they’re enduring. This song reflects that darkness,” Tera shares.

The triple-threat (songwriter, singer, and dancer) is aware that her music is going to be very unique from what Philippine pop fans are used to, but she believes it is what makes her music necessary, saying: “There are already a lot of songs about love, finding it and losing it. What I offer to the audience is a real, some would say deeper, take on emotions, life events, [and] humanity. My debut single is definitely different from what people are used to, but I think anyone could relate to it.”

But Tera is definitely not settling for the shock factor. With her upcoming music video for the single, she had to undergo tons of preparations and meetings to make sure that her vision aligns with that of Director Elena Virata, who Tera praises was very “open minded and kind with the whole process.”

With her dance preparations, choreographers Douglas Nierras, Chrisy Sawada, and Froi Dabalus helped bring her song’s meaning to life through their artistic, meaningful choreography. She also underwent piano training in the Yupangco Music Academy, Voice Masterclass with Monet Silvestre, and most recently, in The Madz Studio coached by Alfred Samonte.

“This is a dream come true for me. I grew up watching live concert CDs of Michael Jackson and Beyoncé who both shaped me as a performer. Even as a child, I would perform for people and ever since then, I just never got tired of sharing my craft. Ultimately, I hope that people would relate to my songs and be blown away by my performances,” Tera ends.

TEAM Manager Tyronne Escalante shares that they are very much excited about the launch, “Tera writes her own songs and she is a natural-born performer. We can’t wait for everyone to know her and be just as amazed with her talent as we are. She brings something distinct to the country’s music scene and we’re supporting her all the way.”

TERA's songs is slated to be available in music streaming sites like Spotify and Apple Music soon.
