A SPACE Cebu was filled with people last June 30 during the Kiss & Disappear album launch.  The strident beat of the drums and the cascading strums of the guitar  were louder than the rain thrumming on the roof.

Vincent Eco welcomed the audience with the warm and soothing tunes of his song “Chasing Happiness”.

Everyone was full of anticipation as the show started. Fans and spectators alike were all smiles when Eco and the band serenaded them with the songs from the Kiss and Disappear album.

With over 100 people present during the album launch, the place was  jam-packed. But the audience didn’t mind the constricted space as they lent their ears to heartfelt performance of Eco.

How does it feel like to have a hard time letting go? Vincent Eco together with Lourdes Maglinte gave out the feels of being heartbroken with their song “Falling”.

The band’s poignant music echoed through the room giving a melancholic vibe all throughout the performance.

His distinct voice and soulful lyrics cut through to listeners old and new that night.
