Bio

Clemen Castro (born 10 December 1976), also known as Clementine, is a singer-songwriter and music producer from the Philippines. He gained recognition in early 2000 as the guitarist/songwriter/vocalist of Philippine indie band Orange & Lemons reaching gold and platinum status. After the band's break up in 2007, Clementine formed The Camerawalls and founded Lilystars Records - his own indie pop record label to support his own releases as well as local and foreign indie acts.

Major influences includes The Smiths, The Beatles and new wave/80s jangle pop groups. Often transcendent of the usual labels, his sound is characterized by a lyricism and melodic sensibility. His recordings feature a sonic tapestry of jangly acoustic and driving electric guitars. Occasional flourishes of traditional Philippine folk instruments like the Rondalla, and classical Western music instrumentation lend a distinctive flavour to his sound.

Clementine is currently working on first solo album due for release on July 2013.
