BP titled her talk at TEDxOrtigas as the “First Hour,” citing the profound and pragmatic significance of just doing it. She notes how in many artistic pursuits - the first could always suck, but you should go for it anyway.

BP Valenzuela is a 19-year-old independent composer and songwriter who describes herself as “an electronic musician with analog sensibilities.” Her debut-five track EP aptly named be/ep has been described as “deliberate and introspective” by Vantage Magazine and Spot.PH notes her work “combines raw feelings with the slow electropop beats.”
