‘Rob Deniel: young, romantic soul’

After captivating his listeners through his trending hit track “Ulap” that garnered 5.9 Million views on YouTube and 16 Million streams on Spotify, Rob Deniel is back with another old-school sounding tune called ‘Ang Rosas’.

This young singer-songwriter is seeing how deep he can dig to improve his dreamy and retro-inspired tunes. And judging from the waves he made for his previous singles, listeners are liking what they hear from this teen D.I.Y. indie artist.

“I thought that making songs in (what I imagine) is the old way can help me make timeless songs.” In this he hopes that future generations of listeners would like to listen to his songs the way he digs the songs made by acts decades even before he was born.

For 16-year old Rob – this is quite surprising and so forward thinking. “(I hope yung) mga susunod pang generations (ay) madi-digest parin nila yung mga kanta ko.” he expressed.

Rob, who is simply brimming with ideas when it comes to his music, was inspired to write a song about a time machine. More specifically, about an old-fashioned kind of love replete with catchy melodies and mid-tempo grooves.

“Yung pinaka-main story ng song is about two lovers with old souls. May napanood ako na isang movie na parang nag-time machine siya pabalik sa nakaraan to bring back his lover.”

With just the handful of songs that he’s written and released so far, Rob has managed to endear himself to a lot of listeners in such short a time.

Even more amazing that he was able to produce his songs on his phone, including his well-received single, ‘Ulap,’ using the Garageband App on his smart phone.

And with succeeding songs “Gabi”, “Baby I Tried” and now “Ang Rosas”, we are seeing more and more what Rob wants to put across. And that is to share songs that flaunt his romantic side that speak to his listeners hearts.

And Rob Deniel’s advice to fellow young and aspiring musicians?

“Continue lang on making music and don’t look down on yourselves, always create something that you are happy with and then put yourselves out there more.”
