Not too many people know the musical talent of Alessandra de Rossi.
The actress who recently essayed effortlessly her despicable-but-adorable Bernadette role in the now-concluded GMA-7 teleserye Legacy, has been working on an album for five years.
"Inabot siya ng 5 years kasi kung kailan lang ako may pera tsaka ko natutuloy. Perfectionist kasi ako kaya pauli-ulit. Ngayon ko lang natapos," explained Alex to PEP.ph through her Twitter account.
The album, titled Adrift contains 11 tracks and is due for release online on July 19. "All original. Lyrics and music by me. Yey!" Alex proudly shared.
The album is not under any major music label.
"Super indie siya. Mahirap magpatulong sa mga companies kasi wala daw market dito yung genre ko. naintindihan ko naman," Alex said about her album which is a collection of house, ambient-pop, and chillout tracks.
Yesterday, Alessandra uploaded the music video of her original song "Make It Better."
"That's my original song. He-he. 2008 ko pa sinulat yan," Alex said.
In the video, the actress appears to be topless in one scene and lipsynchs the song underwater in another scene.
Alex counts English bands Bliss, Everything But The Girl (EBTG), Imogen Heap, and other Icelandic artists' music as her influences.
