Zack Tabudlo finishes a strong 2021 with the release of debut album

10/15/2021 11:56:40 PM

Following months of stunning success, Zack Tabudlo has finally released his full-length debut album to end the year on a high note.

Episode is Zack Tabudlo's collection of personal experiences about love, life, and the challenges that he had to overcome while chasing his dreams. With emotionally charged and hard-hitting lyrics, the overall vibe of the album is a roller coaster ride of intense feelings of being romantically swept away by love, conveying happiness in its purest form, nursing past heartbreaks, to finally having the courage to forgive and move forward with life.
“Episode is a word that gave such an impact to me at times where I was at my lowest,” the fast-rising  singer-songwriter explained. “People would say ‘here he is with another episode’ or another stage of problems, where obviously not anyone would want to experience. It’s ironic to put it as an album title but it’s how I went through these stories, with these episodes. Everything is based on personal experiences, from heartbreak and love, from life to unfortunate events.”
Being the sole writer, producer, and even mixed and mastered all of its 14 tracks, the entirety of this album serves as Zack’s personal masterpiece. His growth as an artist is very evident in this album as he explored various musical styles in bringing these songs to life—ultimately creating his own sound with influences from pop, R&B, bedroom electronica, punk rock, ‘80s, and ‘90s alternative rock. This, perhaps, can be attributed to his time with Spotify's RADAR Program that propelled his career into stratosphere; along with signing to Island Records Philippines/MCA Music last year.
This growth is something Enzo Valdez has also noticed. “As a composer, he has grown tremendously. We've seen a lot of listeners relating to his lyrics and resonating with his sensibilities. The album also showcases different genres all throughout, making each song a unique experience. This album definitely shows how far Filipino artistry has come despite the challenges of the pandemic.” 
Episode is Zack Tabudlo’s debut album under Island Records Philippines, a domestic label division under MCA Music. The 14-track LP includes some of familiar hits such as Binibini and Habang Buhay along other new songs that will surely tug people’s hearts, stirring emotions and feelings that were once, or never acknowledged.
