Biography

After 5 years n the Philippine Music Industry - including 4 releases with MCA Music Inc., chart topping singles, nationwide touring, a 2 year stint on mainstream television and opening for Kelly Clarkson at the Araneta Coliseum - Miguel Escueta and co. are now on the cusp of the global music scene.

As "the Morning Episodes," Escueta and the rest of his band (Juni Devecais, Roy Secillano and Jeng Tria) have just signed up with Sly Doggie Productions, a Los Angeles based company headed by Grammy Nominated producer Christian “Davis” Stalnecker and Music A&R Executive Bernard Baur. Working directly with record labels like Interscope, Geffen and EMI, Stalnecker co-produced and co-wrote El de Barge's latest album, which was nominated for R&B Album of the Year at the recently concluded 2012 Grammy Awards. Baur, on the other hand, has done marketing and promotional work for artists such as Guns ‘N Roses, Nickelback, Dishwalla, Puff Daddy and Matchbox 20. He has also appeared in half a dozen music documentaries, and several VH1, MTV and CNN specials

"the Morning Episodes" have just finished recording what is to be their first international album (Never Felt So Alive), which was mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by Stalnecker and his team. The album will be distributed digitally in the U.S., U.K., Europe and Asia via the Isolation Network - the same platform used by Universal Music International for their global music distribution. The band is set to be featured in the September 2012 issue of Music Connection Magazine, a nationwide publication in the U.S.

A special Philippines release of the upcoming album will be done through MCA Music Inc. in cooperation with Deca Homes, AudioTechnica and VANS.

Lyrics

Slow Motion

Written By: Miguel Escueta

Slow motion
I am falling down
Falling Down

Oooohhhh

Slow motion
Now the timing's right
Show me the way
To your heart

Ooohhh

So take me for a ride why don't you
Tell me where to start
Faster now it doesn't matter
It will always be
Moving in slow motion

Oooohhh

So take me for a ride why don't you
(Tell me where to start)
Faster now it doesn't matter
(It will always be)

Coming in slow motion
Coming in slow motion

Alive

Written By: Miguel Escueta

Come On
The night is ours for the taking
I know
You're thinking twice but let's not make the same mistakes again
There's so much more to life, you know.
And your heart beat says you're wanting more
You want some more

(Oh-o-o Oh-o-o-o-o-o)

Come on
Just put your hands up in the air
Let's go
We live only once so let's not waste another minute of the night because you'll never know how the wind will blow
So what are you waiting for?

(Oh-o-o Oh-o-o-o-o-o)

I've never felt so alive. I've never felt so ALIVE!

Alive... Alive... I'm Alive! I'm Alive!

Now It Starts

Written By: Miguel Escueta

Make a move
And I will make one too
We've been driving for
Miles and miles and miles across this shore
And we're singing... (ooohooo ooohooo)

THOUGHT I WAS LIVING BEFORE
BUT I WAS WRONG, YES I WAS WRONG
'COZ WHEN YOU CAME IN THROUGH MY DOOR
THE LIGHTS WENT ON, THE LIGHTS WENT ON!
AND THIS MOMENT HAS COME
FOR US TO TAKE, FOR US TO TAKE
AND I'VE NEVER BEEN THIS SURE
SO NOW IT STARTS... NOW IT STARTS

There's no more doubt
so whatever it is in your head
you gotta take it out
Please just take my hand
And in the middle of the street I'll ask for a dance
While our hearts are singing... (ooohooo ooohooo)

Now it starts so don't you
ever ever think about looking back
'coz now it starts... tonight, tonight!
