Characterized by their Pop/Soul/R&B-inspired style, enhanced by incredible vocal arrangements, their unique interpretation of melodies and mesmerising harmonies are leaving audiences in awe at the group’s amazing sound.

Bernie, Tiara, and Gabby are determined to make their mark on the music industry, with a fresh new look to complement their already distinctive sound.

In late 2018 the group became “H3rizon”, depicting a new beginning where they could finally find their own ground on which they could shine the light of their music for all to see.

Their diversity is their forte: Gabby, an acclaimed soprano who studied at the exclusive Sydney Conservatorium of Music; Tiara with her incredible RnB voice; and Bernie’s soulful tones and beat making abilities – make them a force to be reckoned with and adds an element of risk, excitement, and fearlessness in everything they produce.

Despite being new to the industry, they have already proven they can captivate a crowd and push the boundaries with their own unique style. Whether on stage or in the studio, H3rizon certainly possesses the elusive X Factor, and they are a joy and an inspiration to watch and hear.

H3rizon is currently under the guidance of Philippe-Marc Anquetil (Little Mix, One Direction, Ruel, Shinee, TVXQ, Kumi Koda), Jason Lewis (Timomatic, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Didier Cohen, Rogue Traders & Brad Cox), and Kelvin Avon (P.Diddy, Erykah Badu, Nelly, N-Dubz, Eason Chan, Mayday, Sandy Lam, Joey Yung).

InLife Australia recently caught up with H3rizon to discuss their journey in the industry and here’s what went down:

How did H3RIZON get started in the music industry? How were you actually ‘discovered’?

Tiara: We all met when we were quite young through mutual gigs in Sydney’s Filipino community. We coincidentally would always perform at the same events and eventually grew a friendship over music with so much mutual respect for each other’s different styles and talent. Over time and with the privilege of having such an amazing team of mentors believing in us, we’ve organically grown an incredible platform through social media to share our music globally, helping us grow from small-town girls to full-time artists.

What do you guys like most about singing?

Tiara: Anyone who knows us personally knows that singing is beyond our passion. Music has formed the basis of our identity.

Singing has been our way of evolving as not only as artists but as people. It’s where we find comfort, vulnerability & confidence.

Who is your greatest influence?

Tiara: Being a Pop/R&B Girl-Group with such a different music upbringing, we tend to have different inspirations from various artists. Ariana Grande with her pop influence, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston with their R&B/Diva influences, and of course girl groups like Chloe x Halle, Destiny’s Child, Red Velvet, Black Pink and more. DIVA seems to be a theme amongst all our favourites (laughs).


Do you feel that you chose your “passion,” or did it choose you?

Tiara: We each have our own musical journeys, but if there’s one thing we have in common, it’s that we were born to do this!

We feel very lucky and grateful to have known exactly what we want to pursue at such a young age and our passion drives us to stop at nothing to achieve what we were born to achieve.

Can you tell us about your latest project?

Bernie: Well… We can tell you there is an album coming!

Since our last single, ‘One More Christmas,’ we’ve been working really hard to create our first-ever album, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. This album will be an epic collaboration with some super talented songwriters and incredible producers to create our debut masterpiece.

What inspires your group to be creative?

Bernie: We look to each other, the other creatives we write with, and our own musical influences to inspire us. We feel that it’s so handy being in a girl group with musical diversity. And the energy is always up when you’re in a room with other talented songwriters you vibe with. You’re bound to be inspired.


Is there anything special that you do to get into a creative mindset?

Bernie: We don’t think this is anything special, and we wonder if other artists do this, but we can’t function without a good meal before we write. For some reason, it’s our best tool to get us into a creative mindset. I can recall the countless times we’ve blurted out melodic and lyric ideas for songs during a meal break. So, we confirm that it works!

What message, if any, do you try to put into your work and social media?

Bernie: As a girl group, our main message to other women and young girls is to always empower and uplift each other. We’d also love to see more music from female artists. We hope that aspiring artists look to our music for inspiration in finding their true sound. And we hope that the more we put ourselves out there, we’re closer to putting Women of Colour at the forefront of the music industry.

How do you see H3RIZON evolving musically?

Bernie: I feel that we’re only going to keep getting better individually and as a group. As we keep working together, our sound will become more refined, and it’ll open more doors in our music. We know that there’s so much more to discover within the Pop/Rnb genre, and we’re excited to see how or if we’d ever venture out into other different genres. That’s the beauty of being creatives with an amazing team who let us grow; there are no limits or boundaries.

What is the best part of being in a girl group?

Gabby: Since we’ve known each other from a young age, we’ve gotten along so well that you could basically call us long-lost sisters, so it’s always so fun working together! We’re all so dedicated to our craft that working towards our goals never seems impossible because we constantly uplift each other on the way.


What has been the most memorable experience of your career so far?

Gabby: So far, it would definitely have to be the release of our latest single, “One More Christmas.”

Being able to share such a sentimental story with such a cinematic video and recording was humbling as we feel we could bring the true meaning of Christmas to life.

Oh… and did we mention it premiered on ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE, we performed it on prime time TV, and we were featured on billboards in Times Square, New York City??

Seriously… dreams do come true!

What makes H3RIZON unique?

Gabby: We all share diverse experiences between us since we each have different upbringings in music – Tiara’s pop/ballad background, my classical music influences, and Bernie’s a capella and production expertise. We love bringing all of these to the table, which makes our sound unique to us.

Also, as a Filipino-Australian girl group, we want to represent our culture and bring more of that into the Western media. It’s a part of us that we want to show more to the world, and we hope to encourage and support other Asian and Filipino creatives in the music scene.

What are the group’s future plans for 2022 & beyond?

Gabby: We’re going full speed ahead this year! We’ll be doing heaps of songwriting for our album, content creating – always- and performing, so you can expect new singles, new videos, and of course, a killer album in 2022!

We’re really hoping this pandemic is getting behind us so we can finally travel and tour internationally. Our fans want to see us perform live and we want to meet these amazing humans to THANK THEM for all their support – we are so grateful.

We just can’t wait to see where this year takes us!
