Based in Winnipeg, the exciting power pop punk trio - The 1221 - was originally formed in Manila, Philippines. Young, energetic, and performance driven, the numerically-named act consists of three talented brothers: Roman Maceda (vocals/guitars), and twins Rico Maceda (bass/vocals) and Roque Maceda (drums).
The Maceda brothers simply carried on with their strong passion in music when they came to Canada. Their sound is an exciting blend of precision, modern rock n' roll tunes with a striking power pop punk presentation. They cite these artists as their musical influences: The Police, The Kinks, Green Day, and Blink-182, but there's more going on with The 1221! It's something you'll have to hear to understand for yourself!
The 1221 was chosen as winners for the 2019 Jim Beam National Talent Search in Winnipeg. They recently performed at Canadian Music Week in Toronto. The band performed at 92.1 CITI FM and at The Village Idiots' Facebook live series, Live At The Roslyn. In 2018, The 1221 toured Manila, Philippines, the band's second time performing at their home country and has been featured in one of the Philippines' well known radio/television company, GMA Network. They've been busy around Winnipeg as well with performances on Canada Day at The Forks and opening for touring artists like Arnel Pineda (current frontman of Journey). The trio has been featured on the cover of University Of Winnipeg's The Uniter Fiver Music Issue 2018. The brothers will be releasing their sophomore EP in fall of 2019.
