"Umpisa" is one special song for me because it is the first Filipino song I have written," shares Jensen. "Luckily, the reception to the song has been overwhelming. I am excited to make people hear new versions of the song including a duet cut of the song."
"Umpisa" was also picked to be the theme song of the movie MNL 143.
"Playing music is my vehicle to express my personal mishaps, experiences, stupidity," says the young singer-songwriter. "I hope my music will make you feel that you are the only one who is experiencing stuff- heartbreaks, and heartaches. There is, after all, safety in numbers."
"I am glad that people enjoy the music I do," says Jensen. "I am humbled whenever I see them singing my songs. I am thankful that I get to do what I love to do the most -- writing and performing my music."
His songs and performances gained critical acclaims that he was invited to various music festivals, here and abroad. He has been featured in Fete dela Musique in Cebu, Original Music Society event in the National University of Singapore, and Pengasih event in Malaysia.
Jensen also performed for IamTV in Malaysia.
"Umpisa" will be launched this February 1, 8 p.m., Saguijo, Makati City. The launch will also feature performances from She's Only Sixteen, Mayonnaise, Carlos Castano, young singer-actress Tippy Dos Santos (who performed a duet of Umpisa with Jensen in the album) and former Rivermaya vocalist Jason Fernandez.
