Put a finger down if you're one of the ~many~ people who play the same set of songs all day, every day. But if you need new music recommendations to add to your study playlist, we've got homegrown musicians outside the metro that are worth a listen. Below, we list down six Cebu-based artists worth checking out:

Raphiel Shannon

Raphiel Shannon covers various pop songs on her YouTube channel. Her cover of "Modern Loneliness" by Lauv even got noticed by the OG artist. Aside from covers, she's also come out with her own singles like "Sa'yo" and "Mundo," the latter of which was an original soundtrack for the film On Vodka, Beers and Regrets

Mandaue Nights

Repping the Cebuano music scene, Mandaue Nights is a duo composed of musicians Karl Lucente and Gino Rosales. The music they produce together is a mix of synth pop and alt-rock.

Jolianne

At the fresh age of 17, Jolianne has found her own sound. The rising R&B artist from Cebu first entered the limelight when she joined The Voice Kids in 2015. Now she's gradually building her discography with singles and EPs, including her latest drop, "Halfway There."
