Early this year, Bandwagon Philippines was invited to a special pre-Valentine's gig hosted by DocDef Productions and Novellino Wines. The event paved the way for us to share toasts with Novellino President and General Manager, Christopher Quimbo, whose love for music is matched only by his company's passion for wine and the Filipino people.

Having discovered a strong common interest in promoting local music on a wider scale, Bandwagon and Novellino have decided to collaborate on a new series, which marries the winery's Pour Out What's Special campaign and Bandwagon's knack for producing video specials, to present a fresh look at Filipino independent musicians and their love for their own craft.
Pour Out What's Special x Bandwagon Sessions introduces us to these individuals outside of their known bands and lets us take a peek at their solo projects, in an effort to get to know more about what makes an artist tick and inspire others to indulge in their own self-expression through music.
In this first installment, Chris sits down with Leah Halili, bassist of indie folk band The Ransom Collective, and has a quick chat with her about her musical influences and switching it up between grooving to the heavy motion of the bass guitar and the strumming up personal stories on her tiny mango ukulele.
