Philippines Singer, Songwriter & Worship Leader Mary Ozaraga Releasing 'Better Days'

Aug 03 2022

Mary Ozaraga, a Singer-Songwriter in Cebu, Philippines where she is also a Worship Leader, releases her new single 'Better Days' on August 11, 2022.

"It is a summer song that was written to encourage a friend who was going through depression", explains Mary. "The verses talk about the ugly side of it, the prechorus talks about seeking help, and the chorus lifts it up to hold on to God's promises and truth: greatest anchors against the waves of depression.

The big factor in creating that atmosphere is the beats: with a reggaeton beat to carry that uplift in the chorus, the kind of beat that gets you to get up and dance. As with the rest of the production, the goal is to bring summer hope into the winter of our souls."

Mary began sharing her music during the lockdowns in 2020, eventually releasing 3 singles & a 3 track Christmas EP in 2021. Her playfulness and musical influences are seen in how she experiments with song styles, ranging from folk/singer songwriter to rap/rhythmic to alternative/symphonic rock. Her background as a drummer is evident in her rhythmic guitar playing, in her songwriting and in her singing style.

Even with varied musical influences, she continues to search for the music of her country's history with a hope to one day raise up worship with music that is now almost completely forgotten.
