LOURDES BARON: “MOST NOMINATED ARTIST AT THE L.A. MUSIC AWARDS A POTENTIAL GRAMMY NOD”

67 Year Old Filipino Music Artist, Lourdes Duque Baron Creates Waves in Hollywood as Most Nominated Artist at the L.A. Music Awards and Potential Grammy Nod Baron is in a season of both nostalgia and reality about what it means to be starting a music career at an older age, and her life reflections have become the life and breath of her debut album and is honored to be nominated for LA Music Awards as well as a potential Grammy nomination. Burbank, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014 — At the tender age of 67, Lourdes Duque Baron, is taking Hollywood by storm as the breakout music artist of 2014. Baron is the most nominated artist for the L.A. Music Awards with four nods including: 1) Record of the Year, 2) Female Vocalist, 3) Hot AC Artist, and 4) Best Musical Single or Group. The producer, Andrew Lane, is also up for Producer of the Year, for Baron’s album, appropriately entitled “Feeling Good At Any Age.” The album, which includes three original songs; Don’t Promise Forever, My Spring in Paris, and Dance Again is also on the ballot for a 2015 Grammy nod. Baron is in a season of both nostalgia and reality about what it means to be starting a music career at an older age, and her life reflections have become the life and breath of her debut album. “I wanted to make the songs of this album like they’re chapters in a book, to try to really capture what I’m thinking about in that season of life,” she explains. “This record, to me, is probably one of the most interesting subject-wise. It’s a bit retrospective and honors musicians and classics of the past.” She continues, “It’s an honor for me to be nominated at the LA Music Awards because it has such a rich history of music talent and has helped launch the careers of so many incredible artists.” The Los Angeles Music Awards organization was founded in 1991 by Al Bowman who is also the executive producer of the Los Angeles Music Awards show; and co-founder of the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards and Phoenix Music Awards. “Lourdes is a throwback to another era when genuine musical talent and ability truly mattered. She is an amazing talent, a timeless wonder that will bless our stages in 2014.” Bowman shared. The nominees attend two pre-award show press events at the Whisky A Go Go and are given an opportunity to perform for the press. Baron will be performing with AKNU on June 19, 2014 and at the voting party on September 25, 2014 at the voting party also held at the Whisky A Go Go. As an accomplished author of two books, Baron is refreshingly candid about the realities of her life. When she sits back to survey her experiences so far, the emotion that rises is one of gratitude, expressed on her favorite track and her tribute to the late Amy Winehouse, “Me and Mr Jones.” The retro doo wop ballad finds her taking in a dark chapter of her life when she was estranged from her husband and chronicled in her book, “I Called Myself Cassandra – detailing the wrong turns and heartaches that have allowed her to recognize the gifts in her life and the message of a new sunrise. The album, and the songs chosen, echoes these same experiences. “Me and Mr Jones” was recorded with AKNU, the group who enraptured Simon Cowell on the X-Factor in 2013.

She stood there with so much eloquence and grace. Power and style. Dignity and beauty.

As the host of the press conference further introduced her, she smiled so sweetly and candidly like a child. And you could already feel the greatness within her. Her name: Lourdes Duque Baron, an acclaimed international Filipina singer in Los Angeles, winning awards from L.A. Music Awards and her song on her latest CD album “Table for Two” (her own cover of the hit song) currently the no. 1 most requested song on ReverBration.

Though this time around, we’d rather not talk about her great accomplishments abroad. This time around, let’s talk about her being a Filipina, at 67 years of age. And that, she just finished shooting her scenes in her very first Filipino film entitled Butanding, directed by low-key veteran film director- Edd Palmos.

How was it like doing a film here, Ms. Baron?

“My schedules met with the shooting schedules of our director”, she answered. “And I am so proud to do my very first Filipino film, right here on my own country. I left 40 years ago, and I am 67 years old now. The shooting went fine and smooth. Director Ed was so good in motivating me and all the rest of the cast and crew were so supportive and friendly.”

Do you love Butandings, Ms. Baron?

“Yes, I love them so much”, she answered. “They are an endangered species. We must all learn on how to protect them, save them. That’s why when I learned that the film we’re doing will center on Butandings, I at once agreed. It’s my turn to do my little contributuion in saving them from extinction.”

One blogger added, the participation of Ms. Lourdes Baron in the film Butanding will create an international appeal and could help a lot- in a way that it can attract wider attention on the recent plight of the Butandings. Some people wants to kill them, actually, because they eat small fishes in the ocean and fishermen wants them away from their territories.

Ms. Baron will be back on the Philippines by the month of May. She will be attending the grand premiere night of this film here in Manila. She left a couple f weeks back after finishing shooting her scenes in the movie.

“It was a great experience”, she said. “I am a Filipina, by heart and soul. I fell in love with our culture and ways back again. And how I wish, I could live a simple life all over again as a Filipina by heart, though at this time now, I can no longer do that with all those busy schedules I have. But certainly I plan to visit more frequently this time. I may do a couple of films more soon. So definitely, I will be back.”

Counting on that, Ms. Baron. You’re greater than you think you are.
