They were nominated for Rock song of the year at the 7th Annual JMAs and currently enjoy top 10 charts on several radio stations worldwide. Their musical style has been influenced by the sounds of the 60's through 90's as they bring a unique approach to each of their releases by featuring some of the best Filipino artist. Founded by Larry Gabbert - Drums and Mark Ervie de Jesus - Guitars. The band is rounded out with Ado Bantula - Vocals, Darlene Ordanza - Vocals, Michael Odoño - Vocals, Grace Collamat - Keyboards and Jeremy Miranda - Bass.

Kabaliwan sa Isip is the new single with a scheduled
release date of September 1, 2022. This is the first non English song the band has released and is set in a hard-rock metal mood. Also included in this EP is two cover songs, First a rockin tune by the Motor City Mad Man (Ted Nugent) with Wang Dang. The last track is a blistering cover of Harry Nilssons ONE (is the loneliest number).

The album tells the story of young Jane, and features these players… Ado Bantula – vocals; Darlene Ordanza – vocals; Michael Odono-Kubing/vocals Ode to Billy and Jane; Grace Collamat – keyboards; Mark Ervie de Jesus – guitars/bass and Larry Gabbert – Drums/vocals on “The Story”… the opening scene is a scorcher called “The Story“… absolutely SUPERB guitars on this tune… I predict that DJ’s the world over will be spinning this 3:22 gem regularly! You’ll think you’re right on down in th’ swamps of Georgia as you listen to scene 3, “Chomp Chomp Gator“… heavy-duty drums push the guitars (with full vigor) through the mists in the bog… be sure you listen to this with your headphones on… an absolutely killer tune… made me wanna’ put my moto-sicle boots on & ride on down the road. Darlene’s soulful vocal on “I’m Not A Bad Girl” will make you a believer in the power this band projects… since I’m a keyboard player, I was ultra-fascinated with Grace’s skills on the instrument… this is another tune that will be getting a LOT of rotations on stations ’round the globe! I had absolutely no doubt what my choice for personal favorite would be of the seven musical stories offered up… the closer, “Ode To Billy and Jane“, is jam-packed with life and energy and some great musical twists and turns. I give the L&M Project Band a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this fine lil’ rocker. Get more information on The L&M website.
