DRAGONFLY COLLECTOR is the solo project of award winning Filipino singer-songwriter simply known as Clementine. Having just released the first single and video from his forthcoming album The World is Your Oyster, Bulacan-born Clemen Castro is celebrating his 10th year as a professional recording artist by stepping into the solo spotlight. After a decade as the creative force behind commercially popular Orange and Lemons (1999-2007) that reached gold and platinum sales in the Philippines, and critically acclaimed indie group, The Camerawalls (2008-2012) he has professionally recorded and published over 50 original compositions.
Raised in a musical household thanks to his folk guitar and rondalla-teaching father, Clementine was weaned on The Beatles and British New Wave/Guitar Pop influences including The Smiths, XTC, The Jam, and indie pop groups like Belle & Sebastian. Recently, the indie folk sounds of American bands like The Decemberists and Fleet Foxes have left their mark on Clementine’s ear and stylings.
With Dragonfly Collector, a name originally used for his personal blog of musings, travels and poetry, Clementine seeks to express all sides of himself, from sinister to hopeful, woeful to optimistic.
Beyond writing and performing his own music, Clementine is a record producer and owner of Lilystars Records, Manila’s finest indie pop label since 2008, nurturing new musical talents from obscurity to success.
