Van Sereno

Don't be fooled, this aint no PopAsia. No gangnam style or cheesy love ballads from this man! Van is an Australian indie artist migrated from the Philippines and based in Sydney from the tender age of 5. Growing up in the inner west has produced a competent guitarist and an innovative songwriter with an engaging voice.

Starting out as session guitarist for Sydneys top cover bands and various recording studios around town, he graduated with his own originals outfit and songwriting vehicle VAMPit. For years he worked on his craft until he felt comfortable breaking out on his own solo career in early 2005. Eleven years later, Van is promoting his 8th independently released album "Don't Worry", and continues to play anything from pubs, clubs, weddings, corporates, tours and festivals.

His music is best described as indie urban acoustic with a pop sensibility, a kind of storytelling with a groove. Not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve, Van offers you a brand of music that is quirky, cheeky and yet foot stomping and booty shaking at the same time. Think John Mayer meets Babyface.

What we spoke about:

  • What are 5 tips to being a better songwriter? 
  • What are some perceived failures but looking back that was the best thing that ever happened to you? 
  • If someone has been gigging for years what are ways to keep things interesting and how have your evolved? 
  • Give us examples of ways you have evolved as songwriter and performer?  
  • I know that you are creative and firstly you are an artist, one of the struggles we have as singers and artists is wearing different hats (admin etc) how are you finding the balance with social media and creativity? 
  • Who are your mentors? 
  • What does 10 years look like for you? 
  • The name of this podcast is One Voice can change the world what does this mean to you?
  • What is one song that changed your life?

We dive into her inspiration for her single Vulnerable.  Can't wait to see what's next for Clarissa!

This is exactly what we have here with CLARISSA MEI, who has arrived in spectacular fashion with her debut single, ‘Vulnerable’." Emma Jones of

Jhay C is one of the hardest working and most versatile music producers / songwriters in Australia, with the uncanny ability to take a simple idea, vocal melody, or demo track, and transform it into a hit pop song. Covering a diverse range of genres including pop, R&B, hip hop, electronic and rock, Jhay C always stays true to what matters the most; the song.

Jhay C’s major break came when he was handpicked to work alongside multi-ARIA winning producer Audius (Delta Goodrem, Jessica Mauboy, Ricki-Lee, Selwyn). Since then he’s gone on to work with an impressive list of Australian pop artists including Justice Crew, Chris Sebastian, Will Singe, Maribelle, Paulini, Marvin Priest, Ellie Drennan, Caterina Torres, Shannon Noll, Anthony Callea, Shari Short, Fatai, Mind Over Matter, Emily Williams, Kings X, Omar Dean, Angel Tairua, Diana Rouvas and more.

Most recently Jhay C scored his first major US Top 20 hit co-producing and writing ‘Slayʼ by Nia Sioux. His recent credits also include releases by Sarah De Bono’s ARIA Gold selling single Beautiful, Bielfield, Courtney Act, Lani Misalucha and a number of cuts for LA label ‘Superpopʼ, which has resulted in his work being featured on major US TV channels such as MTV, BET and Lifetime. Illustrating Jhay C’s versatility, he appeared on Channel 10’s ‘The Bachelorette 2016ʼ as a guest producer / mentor, guiding the show’s contestants to record the single “End of the Rose”.

Jhay C

Jhay C credits the 90’s for his natural R&B and pop sensibilities:

“Having a love for 90ʼs R&B music, I was inspired by the likes of Teddy Riley, Babyface and Devante Swing for their musical genius in putting a heavy hip hop beat under some sweet soul R&B melodies. Being self taught on the guitar and piano, I moved on to production and songwriting and havenʼt looked back since.”

In this episode Jhay share with us how to nail your next recording session.  How singers can prepare for it and get more expression in their recording.  We chat about his work with the one and only Ms Lani Misalucha and how he was able to land his music on TV, movies, Netflix and more.

Thank you Fideliz Cruz for having me on your show!  Always such a pleasure to work with you!

This episode is an interview was from Fideliz Cruz's YouTube Channel.

"In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms Tina Bangel. 

Founder and Owner of "One Voice" School of Singing!

I'm so inspired by Tina as i watch her do what she loves the most and that's sharing the message of "One Voice" & sharing her talent of singing and empowering her students through music.

So How can One Voice; YOUR VOICE change the world?

Here are the Gold Nuggets that i got from this interview:

In the journey of discovering your passions and what it is that lights you up, It's all about giving it a go and trying out new things! Courageously take the opportunities that you're given and use this as a learning experience! - You never know, this could be the stepping stone towards discovering your passion!

There will never be a perfect time, so don't wait any longer and decide to make the move today! This might be in your business, your career, in your studies etc. Focus on the WHY you're doing what you're doing and this will always cause you to move forward and not wait on the what seems to be "perfect" timing.

and lastly,

Your opinion, your views, your thoughts and your words matter and you've got to be heard! All of us evolve and change as we grow and as we do that, we need to be able to express ourselves. This is a great tool to get our message of love, hope and encouragement out there. Whatever your message to the world, make sure it come's from within. If you need to get coaches to help you bring that voice out, then do it!

I love what Tina says:
"One Voice. It starts with you and you have the confidence within you. You have the ability to change peoples lives with your voice. It doesn't matter if it's singing, ti could be through dance, art or sports but you have that ability to change peoples lives just because you have the inspiration and drive within you."

I met Caitlin during Selena Soo’s Get Known Get Clients live event in New York. Caitlin has this gift of capturing the room when she speaks. She is smart, a dedicated soul, an inspiration! You can see the passion she has for her work in her eyes and she genuinely wants to help others become better versions of themselves.

Caitlin Padgett is a lifestyle coach for successful women who struggle with alcohol. Whether the goal is to control their drinking through moderation techniques or to eliminate it completely, she offers an individualised program for women find freedom from alcohol, on their own terms.


Here is what we talk about:

  • Caitlin tells us about her powerful work, how did it came about and what was the pivotal time in her life when she decided enough is enough?


  • What are strategies that creative people can tap into their “zone” without having to turn to alcohol?


  • How to deal with friends or letting go of people that don't serve your purpose in life, what would you say to someone who is afraid to let go of what they know and who they know?


  • Dialog that people can use at the work place or events so they can feel comfortable in situations where they are encouraged to drink?


  • There are people who use alcohol to unwind after work or a gig, Caitlin suggest for people to do when they have the urge to use alcohol.


  • What is the song that changed your life and why?


For many years Caitlin felt like she was living a double life.

On the outside, she was an accomplished international advocate, living a jet-set lifestyle that took her around the world working on interesting projects. She projected confidence and a sense of adventure and fun. Yet inside she was struggling.

She was making good money, but spending a ton on after work cocktails, late nights out, bottles of wine as nightcaps, not to mention the pharmaceuticals she thought she needed to keep anxiety and sleeplessness at bay. For years she had been hiding from myself, it was becoming harder to do so. Looking at myself in the mirror, I couldn’t ignore the effects of drinking too much the night before.

But she discovered...

You can redefine your relationship to alcohol, instead of it defining you.

Caitlin says;

“ I now have a life worth remembering every second of.

A life that I WANT.

Instead of copious amounts on bottles of wine, bubbly and cocktails,
I spend money on delicious, nourishing food.

Instead of hazy hungover mornings turning into wasted days,
I wake up with energy, clarity and enthusiasm.

Instead of numbing out stress, anxiety or accumulative shame,
I feel and I deal, and I know that I can handle whatever comes my way.

Instead of intimacy instigated with liquid courage,
I have deeply meaningful intimate relationships

Instead of “pre-gaming” with my girlfriends by downing a bottle (or two) of bubbly before even heading out the door,
I have beautiful rituals that allow my inner beauty to shine. People say I glow! 

She goes on to say;

“It’s possible for you to have a life you want too.

You can have control over your relationship with alcohol. Life doesn’t have to be messy, overly dramatic, or filled with nagging anxiety and self-doubt. While there’s no magic pill, no quick fix, there is a way. 

A way that honours and celebrates your individuality.”

If this is what you want, then connect with Caitlin here:

Sign up here to receive Caitlin’s three-part “Drink Less Success” Video series and as a special bonus you’ll also be the first to receive her 

“How to be awesome without alcohol” video training as soon as it is released!!

This video series is especially relevant to those of us who rely on networking and being active in nightlife for the success of our careers. I know you’ll get a lot out of it!

Dominic is one of Australia's top drummers and is an in demand session musician from Sydney. He works with Sony Music Australia, Warner Music Australia and has performed with artists such as:

Tim Omaji (Timomatic)
Guy Sebastian
Jessica Mauboy
Delta Goodrem
Samantha Jade
Justice Crew
Rob Mills
Stan Walker
Taylor Henderson
Reigan Derry


Jessie J
Nico & Vinz
Josh Groban
Benji Madden
Lea Salonga
Aston Merrygold

Dom regularly appears in television shows and features including X-Factor, The Voice, The ARIA Awards, Young Talent Time, The Morning Show, The Today Show, Sunrise & Mornings. He teaches privately, upon request, and has hosted popular collaborative jam sessions/residencies, where Sydney's creative and performing arts community are of constant attendance.

Dom's first encounter with playing the drums was by getting in trouble with his primary school teacher while banging beats on his little school desk as a child, back in the Philippines. The teacher saw the potential and talent behind the energetic troublesome boy and cultivated it by letting him share his gift, playing a solo marching snare piece for the annual school festival that year. That ignited a flame and passion that would never be extinguished.

Having started with the guitar at the age of 9 and the bass after moving to Australia at the age of 13, Dom has always been exposed to music of all styles, growing up and coming from a family of musicians. He gained experience throughout his teens playing for his youth group all around Australia. These years of being self-taught were very crucial to him, allowing him to find and harness his natural strengths as a musician and discovering his own style, voice and character. Dom would play anything and everything by ear when he listened to the radio/TV, while keeping a special place in his heart for melodic rock.

After being the most prized all-around musician in his high school, Dom finally found home in the drums once again, deciding to make it his full-time instrument. The movement, physicality, style, raw expression, musicality.. everything about the craft made him fall in love with the art of drumming.

Dominic was offered a Bachelor of Music course at the Australian Institute of Music despite not having his Higher School Certificate. During the years of studying and gigging, he has toured, performed and recorded with some of Australia's leading and upcoming talents. He has learnt from some of the world's best musician educators and his studies and exploration has led him to finding a deep passion for experimental music.

Dcd is available for private lessons and is currently regularly playing with Cyrus, SSJ & Jeremy Gregory.

He is proudly endorsed by Sonor Drums, UFiP Cymbals & Silverfox Drumticks.


A couple of years ago, Don had a heavy feeling of incompletion and couldn't shake it off. He had made a career out of playing music in the "city scene" but it felt selfish and distant from the people who raised and nurtured me in the arts. He missed the peers who mentored him and breathed the same passion for music, without ANY money or politics involved.. Just for the pure love of it.

Finally, some friends and Don have the opportunity to give back, reconnect, (hopefully) inspire, and just have a fun old time sharing music with anyone and everyone; the youth groups, the churches, the schools and multicultural families.

"After all, some of the heaviest mf's come from the west ;)
Please join us for some nights of good vibes and let's make the scene back home alive again ;) The West Sessions." Says Don!

I found Gabe Bondoc to be so humble and so giving of his time. I was only supposed to have a 10min interview but it ended up being much longer which I am so grateful for. He genuinely wanted to help our budding performers out.

Gabe certainly has created a lifestyle and business he truly loves and he is truly proud that he can support his family through music and being creative.

Often we see musicians with a Struggle mindset but what I have come to realise by chatting with Gabe is that when you are a singer/musician who knows he is blessed and who is grateful you won't be in a reactfull or scarcity mode. 

As full time musicians the internet can give us opportunities to reach more people not only in your own backyard but around the world. That is what Gabe has created for himself. He has generated income by working hard, putting in the hours and thinking ahead.

As full time musicians we are known to create something out of nothing.

We can create sources of income with endless possibilities if we just work hard and as Gabe said strive for excellence.

This is what we dive into        

  1. For someone who has over 3 million views on YouTube, tell us how it all came about?  
  2. What 5 tips can you share with our listeners on how to start and grow their YouTube subscribers? Get your Free PDF here:
  3. What do you think of Facebook Live and do you see that as the future or the next big thing? What do you think people should be taking advantage of now?
  4. I have questions from my students 
  • Erica- She asks What made you sing in the first place?
  • Abigail – if you could go back 5 years, what advice would you give yourself?
  • Jodie- "Why don't you ever reveal your wife's identity/face?” 
  1. I have watched your videos and often you have your beautiful little girl, Miss Savannah Kinsley, in the footage, how do you juggle music business and a young family life?
  2. What is one song that changed your life and why
  3. What is your vision?

I first met Elaine as one of members who signed up for Lewis Howes' School of Greatness Academy. I have watched her grow her start up business and her company Neon Owl is something to watch out for if you are into Electronic dance music.

Elaine has been working slowly but surely over the months and I was blown away with the community she has created in such a short period of time.

I wanted to interview Elaine because of her passion to use music as a form to give back to the community. She has purpose and drive that is contagious. She bravely left her 6 figure income to pursue this dream. We dive into how was that transition for her.

I ask her questions that could also help musicians and singers build upon their business, such as using services like Thunder clap, Indigogo to help build awareness for your music. We chat about how she reaches out to influencers and builds her networks so her message can be heard.

Here are my questions:

  • Tell us about your company Neon Owl.
  • You mentioned that you love music even through you don’t play an instrument, how did you develop the concept of Neon Owl and how did it come about?
  • Many people are afraid of charting into new territory how did you make the transition of leaving your 6 figure corporate job into diving into creating your dream job
  • Tell us about Thunder clap and how you use it to promote your cause? 
  • How can a musician, performer or singer use Thunderclap for their advantage?
  • You have been really proactive in reaching out to influencers or people who are doing so well in the dance genre- what are some of the steps you have taken to build relationships with them in such a short period of time. I think it would be beneficial for my audience to grasp the concept of networking and building rapport with people in their networks.

Chantelle Duffield is the founder of Studio Expansion and works with performing arts studio owners to help them attract more students, boost their student retention and make running their studio easier!

Through her online courses and her popular video blog, Studio Expansion TV, she has helped thousands of studio owners around the world share their passion for performing and the life changing benefits of the performing arts with more students!

Here are the questions I asked:

  1. Tell us about what you do?
  2. Tell us about your musical upbringing, have you always wanted to sing and how it comes about?
  3. I love seeing your photos of you conducting at the opera house, tell us about that and how you got involved?
  4. How did you make the transition from owning a successful studio to what you do now?
  5. What are the things you did as a studio owner that you felt were "failures" but helped you grow to where you are now?
  6. What are your marketing tips for people starting out their own studio?
  7. What are some tips people can do now to increase your students?
  8. What is one song that has changed your life?
  9. How can people connect with you?


Chantelle suggests:

  1. Creating an event where people can connect with you and your community
  2. Create a Leadpage where you can create a landing page that collects emails and leads:

(This is an affiliate link so if you decide to get Leadpages I will receive a commission from the sales)

  1. Create a nurture sequence of emails that offer educational tips and position you as an authority using Mailchimp.


Once you have attracted a student to your door or phone we chat about how to make an enquiry “all about the student”.


How you can start making the right connection with the potential student by asking the right questions and finding out who they are and what they would like to achieve.

Ask them 4 questions like:

  1. How old are you?
  2. Who do you like listening to?
  3. What do you want to achieve with singing?
  4. What are your singing challenges?

One tip to attract more students is to start marketing and promoting your classes or boot camp 6-8 weeks before they start.

Ways to promote your event creating consistent nudges and taps via Facebook Ads and School Newsletters.



Solidify the connection before asking them to re- enroll

Sending postcards focusing on what they are Thriving on, what they need to work on and giving encouragement.




We dive into:

How to create a successful choir

How to grow your studio and what happens when you fear success.

How to map out your year

How Chantelle plans 6 months in advance

Chantelle’s tips are:

“Do the marketing and don’t get stuck doing the day to day – don’t check your inbox straight away”

Create systems so that your studio runs smoother

- Establish Auto responders

Keeping track of the 4 quadrants at the beginning of each week: Retention, Attraction, Team and Systems

I use singing as my way of releasing my frustrations and expressing myself.

It’s a way to calm me and I enjoy the spiritual feeling I get from it.

It must be the deep breathing and the centering.

But what happens when singing is your job and sometimes you always fall sick before an important gig.

Over the years, through dealing with students and professional singers, I had noticed that the first thing to go is the voice.

What happens when you can’t overcome performance anxiety no matter how much you practice.

This is where Melissa Zammit, of Pure Energy Therapies, comes in. This is just another resource that you can use to overcome performance anxiety or to prepare yourself for gigs, mentally and physically.

Melissa is a fully qualified Energetic Healing practitioner. (Diploma of Energetic Healing). She has a background in Cancer Nursing and experience as a Clinical Nurse Consultant working directly with woman with Breast Cancer.

Melissa and I first met at a Marie Forleo’s B-school gathering and from the moment I met her I was drawn to her work.

This energy healing is not to replace any medical professional advice. 

I know you will get a lot of practical tips within this interview to help you as a performer.

We chat about her work and how it has helped many people,

her gift of seeing spirits, which angel to call upon to help clear blockages, and the affirmations and techniques (EFT) that will help you to manifest the performance you want.

Here are my questions and what you will learn:


  1. Tell us about what you do?
  1. What is energy? 
  1. How can your work help singers and performers?
  1. What are some ways that someone at home can clear their own energy so they can be more confident?
  1. How to clear blocked energy through Chakra meditation?

  1. What, where and is the throat Chakra and How can you clear the throat chakra? How do you know that you have a blocked throat Chakra?
  1. I remember having a chat to you during our B-school meet up and you mentioned you see spirits? Tell us about the first time you saw one and what is their purpose? How can someone tap into that side of their being?
  1. The fear of being heard or seen can be very powerful that it can hold some people down or stop people from going for their dreams - if we don't have access to a energy healer how can a parent or a coach help someone from overcoming that fear?

The art of thinking outside the box with Joel Fuentes Gallarde  & Emeroy Bernardo 


Joel  Gallarde  & Emeroy Bernardo have thepassion and drive for dance that they naturally think outside the box.  I enjoyed listening to their journey as they find ways to monetise their love for dance and create pathways to inspire others along the way.

Like most Filipino children they were encouraged to dance for family gatherings and was drawn to the applause, community and lifestyle dance offered.

We dive into how they started making a living from dance. Emeroy, successfully sells online dance lessons through Udemy and has exciting plans to creating an app for dancers, which could potentially bleed into other avenues. 

Joel has a thriving company that has expanded Internationally.  All developed through stepping out of his comfort zone connecting with Influencers and the movers and shakers of the dance world.

If you want to learn more on how they are creating big waves in the dance world today I invite you to listen to the whole podcast as you go about your day (driving to work with Ads and mindless chatter can be a bore)

Performers and singers can take away some nuggets too!

I certainly did!  If you enjoyed this or know of someone who can benefit from what we spoke about please share, like or comment on the post.

They answer questions like:

§  When did you know you wanted to dance for a living? 

§  Individually you have turned your love for dance into a thriving business. What did first steps did you do to generate income for yourself?

§  How do you keep yourself motivated?

§  What are your tips for anyone who what's to make a full time living as a dancer?

§  What do you see in the future for dance?

§  Making money from dance? What is your advice when asking for a talent fee?

§  What is One Song that changed your life?


Joel Fuentes Gallarde chats about his company and projects.

The Company of University Dancers (CUDZ) was founded by Joel Fuentes Gallarde in 2001 at The University of Auckland, New Zealand. The group has extended its services beyond the student community & now is one of the most well established Hip Hop / Urban dance companies in Australasia. 



“Empowerment of all people through our passion & commitment in the Performing Arts”


Through the years, TRiPLe8FuNk has been featured in a number of major events including Carnival Choreographer’s Ball (Sydney), Coca-Cola Christmas in The Park (Auckland), Poreotic's Tic Tic Tour II (Melbourne), Tokyo Tower Showcase (Japan), Boogiezone International Showcase (Los Angeles), and many more. They have toured a number of cities worldwide and have organized a few dance events such as concerts, workshops and after-parties for international touring artists.

The company aims for excellence & believes in teamwork, discipline, artistic innovation, & community involvement. They create a funky flavour to the latest dance styles. So from the cool ‘old skool’ to the hot ‘new skool’, groovin’ to the freshest beats is what they do best!

Emeroy Bernardo is a leader in personal transformation and a leader in the areas of health and fitness, personal productivity, and personal development. He's praised for zen leadership style combined with his passionate vision to guide others become their best selves whether it's through fitness or dance classes. Emeroy's greatest victory wasn't just gaining control of his health, but overcoming his own ego and anger after being sent to jail and nearly losing his family.


Aside from coaching and teaching, Emeroy love's spending time with his family and friends as well as perform and compete with his dance company.

I was so glad that I had met Emeroy through SOGA and I was thrilled when there were more members in the arts. He talks about his growth and experiences in your life and business since joining.

He also shares how he has generated income through online courses untilizing Udemy and his App creation.
