Bilang CEO ng Careless Music, marami ang ginulat ni James Reid na isa sa napasama sa bagong talents niya ay si Liza Soberano.

Ang Careless Music ang pag-aaring music label at talent management company ni James.

Sa trade launch ng Careless Music noong June 20, 2022, pormal na pinakilala si Liza bilang isa sa bagong artists ng kumpanya.

Sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay James, hindi tinago ng aktor na may pressure siyang nararamdaman dahil alam sa industriya kung gaano na kalaking artista si Liza sa dami na rin ng achivements nito.

"Yes, of course, she's a star, one of the most bankable stars in the country.

"But at the end of the day, I believe in her vision for what she wants to do with her career.

"That's why I don't feel much pressure because she has a right clear vision and I think it's achieveable.

"I think it's gonna bring her to the next level of her career. It's looking bright for her," kumpiyansang pahayag ni James.

Si Liza ay homegrown talent ng ABS-CBN, at co-managed ng Star Magic, ang talent management arm ng Dos, at ni Ogie Diaz, hanggang sa lumipat ang mag magandang aktres sa kumpanya ni James.

Tinanong namin ang aktor kung paano ba niya nakukumbinsi ang mga talents na magpa-manage sa Careless, lalo na sa katulad ni Liza na maganda ang itinakbo ng showbiz career.

Lahad ni James: "Actually, very casual. Actually, sa lahat ng artists either we see them or we just meet them with someone who knows them and we ask them if we can sit down.

"Very casual, I don't wanna make it seemed too serious. The conversation is usually very casual, I'd like for them to hang out with us first, be with us and see what we are about, how we work with each other.

"It's very different from the companies I worked in the past."

Nang tanungin kung nakausap ni James ang dating manager ni Liza na si Ogie, Diaz, sagot ni James, "All our communication is done through Liza. But no, not really."

JAMES REID ON WORKING WITH LIZA SOBERANO

Kung may isang bagay na hindi inaasahan si James, iyon ay ang oportunidad na makatrabaho si Liza bilang manager nito.

Parehong nanggaling sa sikat na loveteams ng ABS-CBN sina Liza at James—ang LizQuen o Liza at Enrique Gil at JaDine o James at Nadine Lustre.

"Yes, we've been in the same industry for so long. It's not too many artists like us, me and Liza. We definitely appreciated everything that we're doing.

"We were in the same league, but I never expected that things would be going what we have now until I started to manage myself."

Marami ang nagsasabi na may chemistry sila James at Liza at bagay silang magpareha sa isang proyekto.

Ayon kay James ay hindi ito ang prayoridad nila sa ngayon.

"Nothing is off the table right now, but we wanted to, of course, push for what Liza wants the most."

Dagdag niya, "For Hope, just like me when I first left [my former management] and start managing myself, all I can say is have faith.

"I'm a true fan of Liza. Have faith on the decision that she's making. It's looking bright for me."

JAMES ON LIZA'S HOLLYWOOD DREAM

Isa sa sinabing rason ni Liza kung bakit siya lumipat sa Careless Music ay dahil gusto niyang i-push ang pangarap niya na maka-penetrate sa Hollywood.

Positibo si James na matutupad ito.

"It's been very interesting, we've been to L.A. just recently, just over a month ago, just looking at what other opportunities [we can] offer her 'cause she's very interested in going global.

"That's one of her goals when she told me why she signed on, 'I want you to help me go international.'

"After that trip, I really believe that if there's a Filipino artist that will really break internationally and represent Philippines, it would be Liza. I think, she really has the potential going international."

Labis ang pasasalamat ni James sa tiwalang pinagkaloob sa kanya ni Liza Soberano pati na rin ng isa pang bagong talent ng Careless Music na si Issa Pressman.

"I'm very proud with the team, the Careless family, the artists, and everything.

"I'm very grateful to Issa and Liza coming aboard and really trusting Careless. I think they are amazing fit for everything we are doing. I think they fit perfectly into Careless.

"Really, the one thing that I look for that they have is ambition for what they wanna do as an artist or where they wanna go with their career."
