Filipino-Australian indie singer-songwriter grentperez reveals his latest single “Old With You”, out now everywhere via AWAL and Fast Friends. A true love song at its core, the latest single from the multi-media artist, singer-songwriter, and producer pairs sweet and intimate lyrics with a sparkling alchemy of DIY-pop, R&B, soul and jazz in true grentperez style.
“Old With You is a song of love and experience between lovers, friends, or even family, to live a life that retains its youthful days even after the test of time,” grentperez explains. “’If I ever grow old’ is a funny line to me, as growing up is inevitable, but it conveys the message of always having that youthful mentality. Either way, if you were to ever grow old, at least you’ve got someone by your side.”
Sydney-based multi-media artist, singer-songwriter and producer grentperez’s handcrafted DIY pop instantly soothes on a series of releases that have helped endear him to rapidly growing audiences at home in Australia as well as further afield in South East Asia, North America and Europe.
Grant’s debut single “Cherry Wine”, released in September 2021 shot up the Spotify viral charts across the globe, including the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and sweeping up the #1 spot in Singapore soon after its release. In less than two years, grentperez’s catalog has seen over 200 million streams to date, and over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, with hundreds of new fans discovering him daily.
