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, Canada. 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 in their home country and has been featured in one of the Philippines' well known television company, GMA Network. They've been busy around Canada and opened for touring artists from the Philippines like Ely Buendia, Yeng Constantino, The Dawn, Kamikazee, Bamboo and Arnel Pineda. The trio has been featured on the cover of University Of Winnipeg's The Uniter Fiver Music Issue 2018.
