Young and talented Lyca Gairanod officially starts a new phase in her artistic journey as she signs with the most successful artist management outfit in the country in Viva Artists Agency. This was announced by Viva through a media press conference early this week.
The 15-year old Lyca Gairanod, who had her start at The Voice Kids Philippines, had been dubbed “the little superstar” for her supposed likeness (and origins) to legendary Nora Aunor. But more than the comparisons with the Philippine Superstar, Gairanod is better known for her vocal prowess.Lyca demonstrated exactly what kind of a singing powerhouse she was (then) when she aced her performances on the aforementioned singing competition. And this she managed without formal training and was just on the brink of turning 10.
Fast forward to 2020, Lyca Gairanod, still young and brimming with potential at the age of fifteen, will now be guided artistically by Viva Artists Agency. To date, the young singer has so far amassed over a million subscribers to her YouTube channel, and with the potential of growing it further with the creative assistance that Viva will provide. Guidance for Lyca would also entail a refocusing of her singing career. Something that Viva Records will definitely have a big hand in.
While her solo tracks will immediately be a priority, Gairanod is said to be preparing a special collaboration with another Viva recording artist. And while we can imagine a reunion of sorts with The Voice coach Sarah Geronimo, that will have to wait as Lyca Gairanod will take those raw powerful vocals of hers in a different setting. Gairanod will record and collaborate with one of 2020’s biggest breakout bands in Bandang Lapis, the group behind the number one viral hit “Kabilang Buhay.”
Lyca’s raw powerful vocals coupled with Bandang Lapis’ catchy, lyrical style already presents a couple of positive outcomes that is sure to excite the multitude of supporters and listeners of both acts. The yet untitled collaboration will be Lyca Gairanod’s kickoff project with Viva. But for sure, this will just be the start of a new and exciting chapter for Lyca Gairanod.
