Award-winning Filipino-American Musical Director Troy Laureta Champions OPM Ballads in Upcoming Album “Kaibigan: A Troy Laureta OPM Collective”

Award-winning Filipino-American musical director Troy Laureta, who has gained recognition for his works with Ariana Grande, David Foster, and Jake Zyrus, is producing an OPM album seeking to showcase the classic Pinoy love ballads to the world. 

ABS-CBN Music International will co-produce the album to be called "Kaibigan: A Troy Laureta OPM Collective," slated for release on November 22 (Sunday). Global artists from America and Asia will be interpreting well-loved OPM classics. 

"I've always felt that OPM deserved it's time to cross over in some way, where foreigners would appreciate our style that is so beautiful and musical," Troy said. 

"I'm really blessed to do a lot of stuff around the world and work with so many cool, dope people. But it is so important for me as a musician to give back to my community as much energy, time, and effort I have given so many artists around the world," he added. 

The talented producer has also previously worked with Andrea Bocelli, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Steven Tyler, The Pussycat Dolls, and several Filipino artists including Jay-R, Kyla, and Lani Misalucha. 

Aside from his aspiration to promote Pinoy ballads outside the Philippines, the project is also the musician's way of rediscovering how OPM influenced his musical journey and contributed to his success in the US. 

"Most of the artists that I have worked with appreciate and respect my passion for piano music and love songs. OPM was a major factor in that," revealed Troy, who shared how ABS-CBN teleseryes and "ASAP" via TFC greatly influenced his musical choices. 

Born to Filipino parents, Troy grew up in Hawaii and later moved to Los Angeles in California to pursue his music career. He has an eclectic taste in music, enjoying pop, R&B, and ballad music, as well as reggae, punk, and metal.
