The Playlist Series – Marielle Castro


The newest muse from GMA Records, Marielle Castro‘s musical journey towards stardom has only started. Previously known as Yelle, Marielle is a 24-year-old Filipina nurse currently based in Dubai. Her songs serendipitously made their way to GMA’s producers and since then, she’s been catapulted into being the newest acoustic sensation: a true artist who pens and plays her own songs. Her first single, “Bubble” debuted at #21 on the iTunes Philippines charts and #20 on Pinoy MYX, a local music video channel’s segment. With new material coming soon from the artist, we’re only convinced that her star would shine brighter. In this Playlist Series, Marielle collected tracks with the theme: Seasons change…but it’s still forever summer! Sounds like a true blue Filipina – where the weather is only hot and hotter (ok, sometimes wet). Whyd and Deezer players below.


“I chose these songs and in particular, these artists because they stick to the rawness of their voices, imparting great stories with their compositions.”
