The album includes tracks like “When I Fall in Love” “What a Wonderful World”, “Kailangan Kita” by George Canseco and “Bato sa Buhangin”.
His return to GMA7 has allowed him to expand and step up his game, as he is part of the recently-launched noontime show “Sunday All-Stars”.
When he visited, he and his team won just that Sunday and he gamely relayed his experience of being the team leader–how he has to get all his members together, come up with a unique concept and make sure the production number is tight and well-rehearsed.

We did talk a little bit about his love life (he is currently single ladies) and I appreciate the fact that he opened up and shared the lessons he learned from the previous relationship and how it’s made him a better person. He says he isn’t in a hurry to jump into another relationship again, so he’s taking his time to just grow and become better in his craft.
July 17, 2013 – Six Part Invention on Stage 1
It’s not all the time that I meet successful couples who are actually in the same band. Of course there’s Karmin (booyah, I’ve never met them yet): gorgeous Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan who recently tied the knot and released their latest single “Acapella”.
Here comes Rey and Kaye Cantong of Six Part Invention. When I had them the first time, they were just this sweet boyfriend and girlfriend who loved to make music. Rey is a musical arranger for TV (Showtime, ASAP) and artist recordings, while his wife Kaye manages a salon and accompanies her husband whenever possible.
The album called “Stripped and Covered” is under Universal Records and features light-alternative 90’s tunes like “The Flame”, “Two Steps Behind”, “Honestly” and “Heaven”. It is set for international release in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.
It’s easy to get intimidated when you meet him at first; I remember he just released his first album under MCA Music (which had a very Michael Buble-feel) when he was introduced to me. I found him very warm and personable, taking time to really talk and not just go through the motions of promoting his music and shows.
With a new album out under his new record label, I knew that our talk that afternoon would be very amusing as he’s also just entered a new stage in his life: being a husband to Maricar Reyes.
I learned a lot from Richard’s wisdom that day. Thankfully, I have it on video! I’ll be sharing it here so make sure you check back often.
