ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When Chyrell started to record her debut album in 2003, the Filipino music scene in North America was just starting to take off, so much so that before the end of the year she had her first major concert in Toronto at the Jane Mallet theatre -- An Evening with Chyrell Samson and friends. It also was her CD release concert. She has done more solo concerts since then.

Ever since then the local Filipino Canadian media has celebrated her quality voice and have also compared it to outstanding celebrities like Lea Salonga, Tara Maclean, Jodi Benson and Celine Dion. So it is needless to say that Chyrell's style is a blend of some of the most gifted artists that have been on the scene for many years.

She started writing songs in her early years, but she didn't start recording her first album until 2002, when she approached local Toronto Producer (and Singer-Songwriter-Composer) Rodney Ronquillo, Bob Lee and also Pop Producer R. Franklin. Rodney has over 10 albums to his credit and his genre is adult contemporary, which made a perfect fit for Chyrell's quality vocals.

Finishing her debut album has been Chyrell's most rewarding project so far. Her title track, "Waiting for you" is her original song, while the other songs are contributions by Rodney himself.

"Waiting for you" is a song about unrequitted love, something that many people can relate to. Hoping for the right person to walk into your life is something always best unexpected. Also included are remix and acoustic versions.

"Pages" is a haunting song (originally sung by Karen Tan of Dreamscapes) that prays and remembers the memory of a loved one, lost to Cancer. The title itself is a metaphor, how our lives are like a book, from cover to cover. It is by disease that it tears out all the pages of that book, leaving the final chapter of the person's life.

"Final Lullabye", a collaborative effort by Winnipeg Poet Nicole Petroski and Rodney Ronquillo, is a song about a widow who mourns the loss of her husband. The song originally was a poem by Nicole for her upcoming book, but it was later translated into and inspired by the passing of one of the Producer's friends, Dr. Nestor Yanga, the first Doctor in North America to be claimed by the SARS virus. This is a duet between Chyrell and Rodney Ronquillo.

"Prayer" is a song about a broken relationship, and emotional outpouring of pain and broken-hearted suffering yet optimistic for hope. This was originally sung by Jennifer N. Uy. Another Rodney Ronquillo original, Prayer challenges Chyrell's vocal capabilities beyond the limit while still keeping her expressive and quality vocal style.

"Distances" is a song about a long-distant relationship within a dream, a metaphor that describes admiration between two people, regardless of their distance. A person who lives just minutes away from someone they are in love with can still feel like they are far away, because they just can't bring themselves to tell them how they feel. Originally sung by Keith Javier.

"Let your Heart Decide" is a song about a longing, hoping to be a part of an admired person's life and heart. It's almost similar to "Waiting for you", in the theme of unrequitted love. Everyone of any age goes through this and can relate. The song's style is tropical and swing in nature, which gives a different flavour break from the crossover pop ballads in the previous songs.

All 8 tracks on her debut album truly showcase Chyrell's greatest talent, namely singing that can take you to a place of warmth, pain and most times smooth emotion. There is a certain degree of sentimentality on Chyrell's CD, but it never turns too drippy such as her critically acclaimed song "Prayer" proves, which has already been an award winner on Fairchild Television and Tuklas competitions (made popular by Jennifer N. Uy). Her other popular songs, "Waiting for you" and "Final Lullabye" are listener favorites.

Chyrell's vocals are so beautiful
I have this album at home and I can tell you that Chyrell's vocals are nothing short of exquisite and beautiful quality. Her interpretations are well done on every song on the album, especially on the songs Prayer and Final Lullabye. Did I mention that she has one of the most beautiful voices in the world? Great work Chyrell!
