The Man and His Music

Regarded as one of Bohol's most prolific songwriters and tunesmiths in recent memory, TQ Solis, Jr. of Loay, Bohol, has made his mark in the field of music that has become so overly competitive and steep with the advent of a cultural renaissance taking place at all levels in the Philippines, from the late 70s up to the present. Having participated in quite a number of songwriting competitions, like the long-standing Metro Cebu Popular Music Festival - and every so often creating music at will for different occasions - TQ's musicality or name as a songwriter had already secured itself in the consciousness of many fellow musicians and music lovers all over the province and beyond. His popularly penned-songs, Gugma, Hain Ka?, Damgo Man Lang, Bohol, One Heart, One Mind, etc. will forever be etched in the consciousness of those who follow and admired his music, as well as by those whose minds he helped formed as a young music teacher early in his career. As an early proponent of Jazz and the classical genre, TQ's music proved to have developed into unique blend of the many popular-styles and oido (self-created) musical progressions that only he and a few informal followers of same musical style - but which many local band musicians have enthusiastically learned to adapt into their own musical styles - have quietly championed. Meet the music and the man, the quiet but trendsetting, TQdelSol! - (Fro 2/7/07)
