5 Interesting Things About Someday Dream

Known to be the Filipino version of Owl City, Rez Toledo a.k.a. Somedaydream started his career only two years ago as an Internet sensation. Today, his music can be enjoyed not only on the radio but on television ads as well. As his fans—aptly called Dreamers—continue to multiply, Rez makes sure he delivers only happiness and love through his music.

Mentored and managed by Champ Lui-Pio (ex-Hale vocalist turned solo artist), the first OPM electronic act has launched his self-titled debut album that’s set to dominate hit charts. Rez spills on how normal his life is, despite his blossoming career.

He’s friends with his fans. So you think famous people are snobs? Not Rez! He makes it a point to connect with his fans by managing his own Facebook account and actively updating his Twitter. He also enjoys spending time with them.

He’s very appreciative. Rez never forgets to thank his fans for their tweets, Wall posts, and the like. And because he’s into art, he thinks it’s absolutely sweet to get personalized drawings, doodles, and pop-up cards from his creative fans.

He has a secret to his awesome performances. Before going onstage, Rez sees to it that he gets help from a special someone; he prays just before he performs. He also listens to upbeat music to get an instant mood boost!

He spends his free time with the people he loves. Despite his balancing act between career and school, Rez makes it a point to spend time with the people dear to him. When he’s free, he watches a movie with his friends. At home, he watches The Walking Dead on TV, or goes online, which he confesses to do all the time. He also thinks about creating more music, and, of course, he daydreams, too!

If given a chance, he wants to be… no one else! When asked whom he wants to trade places with, he confidently says, “I would not want to do that. I would rather be me.” And why not? If we were in his shoes, we’d say the same. He’s got a self-titled debut album, singles heard nationwide, and a fast growing number of loyal fans—what’s not to love?

Rez’s debut album, Somedaydream, is available in Astroplus branches.

Moodboard: No Rain. No Rainbow.

Even as I took a break from blogging, I still made my moodboard for last October and this November. I’m just dying to show off what I did ever since the past month for I get good reviews whenever my friends see it (because my moodboard for a particular month is Viktor’s–my iPod’s–wallpaper too that’s why they see it). You can say I’m a bit proud since they liked it even my only job is to collate the pictures I get from blogsites I visited, and yes I am. I think it’s just cool because the pictures brought Positivity to them as well and I am most happy when my works kinda exude those inspiring vibe. Credits to the Tumblr sites I visited: Mighty to Save, Bubbly Kat and Happy Things.

Even life brings you something not nice, just find time to look at the bright side…

Somedaydream: First Press Release

In this age of radio stations folding and band break ups, people are yearning for the next wave in the music industry to catapult the local talent back into the mainstream.  We are constantly searching for that artist who will break new boundaries and set new trends.  For this, most music fans turn to the international underground scene of progressive indie rock and electronica just to get their fix of good music.  All this is about to change with the introduction of a new breed of OPM music.  One that sounds refreshingly different to be considered a new indie sound but still friendly enough to be blasted on all radio stations, regardless of the target demographics.

The artist touted to start surfing the wave of change is Somedaydream, a.k.a. Rez Toledo, whose first single “Hey Daydreamer” has struck radio airplay gold with every DJ excited to play a song of international quality that they can proudly say is Filipino produced.  Not to mention the
giddiness of the lady DJs who cant help but giggle and smile when they finally saw the artist in the flesh during his recent radio tour.  His good looks and boyish charm are a healthy plus to an artist who, apart from being loved by the mainstream listeners and respected by the music scene, can easily be a target for advertisers.

With the help of mentor and producer Champ Lui Pio, Somedaydream is conquering the airwaves faster than any independent artist, or even signed artist for that matter.  The catchy hook and memorable lyrics of electro pop “Hey Daydreamer” can easily get stuck in your head that you’d start Googling the song and searching for where to download it.  Well, the good news is, you will be able to, along with the rest of Somedaydream’s tracks pretty soon under the format of what is to be known as Digital Music, or music sold online.  What seems to be the most important thing to this 20-year-old Atenean is that his music is heard.  And what better way to spread music than through the internet?  So all the music fans can hold their breaths and watch the landscape of the local music scene change as Somedaydream continues to create a new shift in the tides.

Am I Artistic or What?

With my nineteen years of existence, never did I write a poem, novel, story or whatever it is that is too creative that  I may give to someone. Never. Until now.

When I first heard the “Hey Daydreamer” (HD) song, I thought, Wow. Cool. Another from a foreign artist. Well guess what? I faced the word IN YOUR FACE in all-caps, bolded, italicized and underlined for this song was from a young Filipino artist.

Weeks later, I bumped into Andi9 and Jessica’s (of the Magic Top5@5) Ustream and found myself really mesmerized by the guy behind the works of Someday Dream–the genius responsible for the HD song. *Watch his live performance at the Magic booth here!!* From then on, I kept an eye on the band’s has-whats for I surely know that there would be so much more in them now and in the future.

TRIVIA!!!


  • Rez Toledo is the guy behind the works of the song Hey Daydreamer and the one-man band, Someday Dream. He is twenty years old; a Sophomore student at the Ateneo De Manila University, taking up Management.
  • Hey Daydreamer is a song inspired by a girl he (Rez) really admired a couple of years back. If you know how to do the math, that’s how old the song is. Its Unplugged Version was released last 14th of February at the Magic Top5@5 when CJ from the Big Meal got some problems playing out at their program. Currently, the song placed the eighth spot at the Magic 30 Countdown and fourth on RX top 7  Countdown.
  • They (the Dream Team) got the name Someday Dream courtesy of Rez’s creative juices and random thoughts.
  • They’ve done a lot of radio guestings lately–Magic’s Top5@5, Jam 88.3, Magic’s Big Meal, Playtime on RX 93.1, the Drive on 99.5 RT, Wave 89.1 and surprise visits on Magic’s On Demand and Mellow 94.7.
  • Champ Lui Pio (of Hale) is helping out the band on making its name in the music industry.

Stalker or Fan? I followed him on Facebook and Twitter as well. I was really happy because the guy appreciates and keeps the fans posted. He makes it appoint to reply from all those fan concerns and comments; he sincerely shows gratitude for all the support he’s getting.

Actually, what made me really glad was this (him taking time to reply to those fan comments I’m talking about).

And so, even if I don’t wanna be one, but from the looks of it I am (one heck of a Fan!!). Here’s a song lyric (have no idea of how it would sound, yet) for the guy who inspired me to write stanzas of non-sense thoughts and verses of crazy antics. He won’t be able to read this anyways, and so, I’ll be living relieved.

You Got Me at ‘Hey’

It was a Thursday afternoon

When I saw you from across the room

I captured the time, it was exactly four

You pulled a chair and sat uncomfortably

You picked your guitar and sing a song for me

And just like that, my heart opened up the door

 

(chorus)

I always remember the first line of the chorus

With that dashing smile, you simply look mysterious

You got me at ‘Hey’, Mister

That’s all that I can say

I’m forever yours if you stay that way

 

I wrote you a letter and you gave one back

You always say my name, I don’t know how to react

‘Hope I can meet you soon’, is that what it reads?

I jumped up and down; i blushed,

Am i head over heels?

Twas then i heard your song again

 

(chorus)

 

(bridge)

I dunno how long i’ll get your sparkly-feel

In this dream, I made you sound so real

Still, it was a fun roller coaster ride

You bet, i don’t wanna leave this world behind

Then i heard it all again

 

(chorus)

 

Please stay that way

I hope you stay that way

Please?

Hey!

I genuinely hope that he’ll stay humble, cool and simple. Well yeah, Someday Dream rocks!! Woot woot!

p.s.:
I’m not really a fan.
p.p.s.:
Fine. I am. Whatever.
p.p.p.s.:
This is so hard to admit. Dang! I’m a fan.
