A sketch of desire to create a music circling around heavy rock riffs but with a melodic approach and to finally play their hearts out, pushed Rey Olarte (drummer) and Sam Salantes (guitars) to set-off a new band. They were formerly known as milk and money and the new band name followed after a couple of choices from a list of names. They chose a name that is short and easy to remember; Simple yet catchy. Thus the birth of CIRCA. Stepping a bit further is the addition of JC Ascuncion to fill in the second guitar.
Held sessions and played their original compositions which has been written before the band started. Finally they have to look for a vocalist to provide life to their melodies for their lyrics. A month of painstaking auditions and practices CIRCA finally chose JB Liwanag for vocals. The quartet was formed to bring into harmony their captivating originals, experimental sounds, and intense feelings, while incorporating different music influences (Paramore, Urbandub, Saosin, Up dharma down, Anberlin, Last Winter, Bullet for my Valentine, Foo Fighters etc.) but with a mark of individuality creating their own niche in their genre of music. 3.
