MARION Aunor is one of the most prolific singer-songwriters of her generation. Starting in the music industry as a multi-faceted pop music artist, Marion has since become a top caliber singer-songwriter. Marion is one of those special breed of music artists who not only is an ace performer, but can also write her own music. But soon enough, she was also writing for other pop acts and since she signed with Viva Records, also came up with some unforgettable theme songs for popular movies such as “Akala” for The Day After Valentine (with more than 27 million streams), “Delikado” from “Just A Stranger” and the most recent, the song “Maganda Kahit Matanda” for the Sharon Cuneta-starrer “Revirginized.” All these and a handful of singles she’s released as a solo artist or on collaborations prove that Marion is indeed one of the most creative acts in Pinoy pop.

Having a record label is something she dreamed of and it has become a reality now with Wild Dream Records..

Marion took a master certificate course in songwriting from Berklee College of Music in Boston, became a Grammy/Recording Academy member, and joined a number of international songwriting conventions. All of this is in preparation for her next role as head of Wild Dreams.

“I felt like I ought to put my knowledge to good use and support other artists who share the same big dreams and passion for music as myself,” said Marion.

“I went through a lot of names though before ending up with Wild Dream Records. Then one day I saw my sister wearing a shirt that said “Wild Flower” but I figured Wild Dream resonated with me and my goal for the label more,” she shared.

For Wild Dream Records’ first release, Marion is keeping it close to heart. The first single from her label is titled “Kama” – written, recorded and produced by Marion.

The initial goals for the label would be to establish its place in the Philippine music industry, spread awareness of its existence, release some great music, and find artists who dare to dream wild,”

“Kama” by Marion Aunor, the first single on the Wild Dream Records label, has been released on all streaming platforms on September 8, 2021.
