Save Me Hollywood-The Pinoy Paramore Version
I was able to watch the Music Uplate Live last night hosted by Yeng Constantino and Tutti together with this funny host they called Ms. Gee. Their guest last night was the newly founded band called “Save Me Hollywood”. At first, I am not that interested because I think this is just another band sprouting like a mushroom out of nowhere, but when Julz, the vocalist started to rock it on, I was just like, “Oh, they look like Paramore”. And yeah, true, I am not the only one who can testify that Save Me Hollywood is indeed the Pinoy version of Paramore.
I don't want of course to say that this is just simply a rip off of Paramore band because I believe that this band can make it to the mainstream without hiding under the identity of a famous band. I guess it's high time for us Filipino to produce and to support a band like this. We need this to make our music industry alive.
Save Me Hollywood has been established and founded on the Year 2010. This is not the typical college Barkada or friends. Well obviously, the band's genre is some kind of a mixture of pop punk, alternative and rock. The band members are composed of assorted talents from assorted bands such as Chicosci and April Morning Skies.
This is a short description of the band members based on my research.
On Vocals, we have Juliann Savard. She is a Video Jock on MYX. Who would have thought that this beautiful face has a natural rock inside of her? She is known as VJ Julz. And look how she resembles with Hayley Williams of Paramore. Juliann “JULZ” Savard is a student from the Ateneo de Manila University taking up Creative Writing. Her red hair is a trademark and this has made her stand out among the rest.
