The Careless Music family is growing. New signees, Liza Soberano and Issa Pressman are looking to venture into a new part of their careers. The independent record label is a force of nature in fostering fresh unknown talent from all over the Philippines, but also encourages artists to step into the unknown and encourage new journeys.

Liza Soberano said she is looking forward to working with the record label known for taking care of “young talent.” The young actress says, “The fact that they work with young creatives -- I’m currently 24 -- so it’s very exciting and encouraging to see a lot of people pursuing their dreams and passion at a very young age in a way that they wanna do it.” She's at a turning point in her career where she'd like to have more control over the projects she does and meeting James Reid's team boosted her confidence in trying new things. “I also wanted to work with people my age to be honest … and when I met James and his team it really made me even more excited to work with because their team is so young, so creative and they are so fearless to take risks and try to chase after things that we would think is impossible,” she added.

Issa Pressman, another talented actress, and artist is another addition to the Careless team. She looks to lean more towards her singing career and trusts the team to carry her forward. “It’s something that I could focus on and I want something that my heart had. (At first,) I don’t wanna show it but my heart was in it, my soul was in it and I’m happy doing it. So, I needed help and growth and I think I could do it with them,” Issa says.

Gold House just hosted its inaugural "Gold Gala," the largest gathering of top Asian and Pacific Islander leaders in the community. The Gala celebrated the 2022 A100 List, the absolute honor that recognizes the 100 APIs that have most significantly impacted American culture and society in the last year, and special awards honoring some A100 legends in the community.

Over a handful of Filipinos made it onto the prestigious A100 list this year, and even more, were present at the Gala. Celebrity Photographer and community advocate Sthanlee B. Mirador was there on the Gold Carpet, capturing guests as they made their way into the event. Check out some Filipino talents and leaders who helped celebrate Gold House's special night below.

Over 500+ API celebrities, cultural leaders, and business executives attended this special night. The night's theme was "The New Gold Age," representing "unparalleled API brilliance and defiance amidst continued violence and racism against the community." In addition, the evening consisted of honoring the A100 list, Mindy Kaling accepting the A100 Legend award, and fellow A100 Legend Michelle Yeoh accepting the first-ever "SeeHer" award at the Gold Gala for defying gender stereotypes throughout her career.

During the gala, Gold House also unveiled some new initiatives which will help the organization continue to unite, promote, and invest in API creatives and companies. See some of their new initiatives below.

Although the Filipino anime series Trese doesn't premier until June 10th, Netflix released a behind the scenes look of the show. The short video has Trese leads, Shay Mitchell and Liza Soberano who are playing Alexandra Trese, a detective who deals with crimes of supernatural origin. Mitchell will voice Trese in the English version while Soberano takes the lead in the Filipino version. To have this anime available in both language is a big deal to reach a wider audience while staying authentic to the stories' origins. Hearing snippets of scenes in Tagalog will send chills up your spine as it adds another level of eeriness but beautiful to hear. Both actresses are excited to share this project with the world.

Shay Mitchell describes Trese as "based on a graphic novel that's set in modern day Manila that uses Filipino folklore to tell its stories." While Liza Soberano describes the character Alexandria Trese "as a female detective who's the protector of peace and harmony between the living and supernatural beings who coexist in the Philippines." With all the twists and turns, the anime series will keep you on the edge of your seat. Stream it starting June 10 on Netflix and learn more about superstitious beliefs that have been a part of Filipino folklore for ages.

The anime series Trese is set to premiere on Netflix this year. It's based on the award-winning Filipino graphic novel created by Budjette Tan and KaJO Baldisimo. According to Netflix, the series takes place as Alexandra Trese is protecting Manila from a supernatural threat. Netflix also recently announced that Filipina actress Liza Soberano will voice Alexandra Trese in the Filipino language version of the series while Fil-Canadian Shay Mitchell will be the voice in the English version.

According to AnimationMagazine.net, Shay says Philippine folklore is rich and fascinating.

“I’m so excited to be a part of a unique and amazing project like Trese, and to voice a character as brilliant as Alexandra Trese. Philippine folklore is rich and fascinating, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team bringing this story to life,” said Mitchell.

The Trese team composed of executive producer Jay Olivia and producers Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson are excited to have Liza and Shay on the roster:

"Shay’s Alexandra exceeded my expectations and she delivers a performance of strength, determination and family duty that is at the very core of the character."
