About Belinda M:
Named after Belinda Carlisle, solo artist and lead singer for The Go-Gos, singing and dancing were always second nature to Belinda. Growing up in a household that was largely influenced by Filipino culture, it was impossible to avoid belting out a few tunes into a karaoke mic from an early age. After her parents discovered she could play piano by ear, lessons started at age 4.
In college, Belinda picked up a guitar for the first time and taught herself the basics. After graduating college, pursuing a rewarding career as a Graphic/Web Designer, and marrying her long-time office crush, her passion for songwriting and performing became increasingly important as life threw her curveballs. Without support from her husband, family, best friends, and musical instruments, she wouldn't be as successful, or as confident, as she is today.
For Belinda, music is an essential creative outlet and a place of solace. For every defining moment in her life, Belinda associates a song with it, like a soundtrack. In this moment, she decided to write her own soundtrack EP and share it with you, in the hopes that you can find solace and inspiration in it as well. Her debut EP "I'm Not Broken" is about finding happiness, self-confidence, and peace in the face of adversity.
