NEW OFFMUTE ARTISTS FROM PHILIPPINES, INDONESIA, AND MALAYSIA 


OFFMUTE  also announced today three new signings for the label:   
  • Clara Benin - Acclaimed   Philippine singer-songwriter
  • Mezzaluna - Indonesian alt-pop sensation
  • Liesl-mae - Malaysian recording star
An acclaimed singer-songwriter in the Philippines, Clara Benin is renowned for her captivating songs that blend unspoken ruminations with commitment and depth. Amassing more than 25 million streams on combined music platforms Spotify and YouTube, Benin frequently headlines local and international music festivals, and won multiple awards including Wishclusive Contemporary Folk Performance of the year for her song “I Rose up Slowly”.
“When my team and I discussed the vision for OFFMUTE, we immediately thought Clara Benin embodied what the label was all about,” Pineda reveals. “And it's great that the other markets think so too.  With a Southeast Asian team supporting her, we’re thrilled that Clara’s moving vocals and introspective songwriting will reach new audiences across the region.” ~Roslyn Pineda, General Manager, Sony Music Philippines
Another addition to the OFFMUTE family is Mezzaluna, a talented and gifted singer-songwriter based in Indonesia who comes from a strong musical lineage and quickly emerged as a standout artist with incredible achievements in her own right.   With deep,   soulful vocals and an intensely personal storytelling style,   the   20-year-old   alt-pop sensation marks her journey as a   solo star capable of delivering inspiring and powerful songs with a universal reach. She will be releasing her debut single this year, which OFFMUTE will be amplifying across the region.


Malaysia’s Liesl-mae completes the record label’s wide-ranging selection of music acts. Making waves in the Malaysian music scene with her soothing, almost-lullaby-like tunes, the recording star will now see her talent showcased across Southeast Asia through OFFMUTE. She plans to release her own music and collaborate with other artists under the new label, as well as harness her newfound platform to advocate for mental health education and awareness
