Rez Toledo would have never thought in his wildest daydream that he would get his big break as soon as he posted his stuff on myspace. He formed Somedaydream 3 years ago when he was 18. Owl City and The Secret Handshake were among his inspirations for his electronic sounds. Armed with laptop synthesizers, he began composing his tunes. Although I’m not so fond of the music genre he’s in but it’s still refreshing to hear original music as opposed to regurgitated music covers from other studio artists like Sarah Geronimo et al. I hope that Somedaydream will hit it big to encourage budding music artists to make original music.
His work got spread by word of mouth, which got the attention of former Hale singer Champ Lui Pio (What? Hale no longer exist?!). So, Champ decides to help out the budding artist until eventually he decided to make a record label called Mecca Music. He even got his celebrity friends to help him out with the video for free.
Somedaydream – Hey Daydreamer Official Music Video
The official video “Hey Daydreamer” was directed by Bianca King and Enzo Valdes. I would love to see what goes on behind the scenes. I bet Bianca has few of the input with Enzo Valdes doing most of the dirty job. Despite being composed of star studded crew, the video looks a bit amateurish for me. But hey can’t blame them for having little budget.
