Juris Fernandez

Julie Iris Fernandez, better known as Juris Fernandez, is the lead singer of the Filipino acoustic group MYMP. She was born in Davao City, went to high school at the Ateneo de Davao University and went to Miriam college in Manila.

She finished BS Psychology, presently taking up a Master’s Degree at the Ateneo De Manila Univ. She is the youngest of two children. Her mother is an obstet-gynecologist. Her father is an engineer. Her elder sister is also an obstet-gynecologist.

Sometime in the middle of the year 2009, speculations about Fernandez and Alcantara having issues caught some media attention when Alcantara silently pulled out from a segment of ABS-CBN’s Sunday variety show ASAP ’09 called Sessionistas, leaving only Fernandez giving solo performances.

The rumors intensified when the band failed to attend the first-ever Philippine Movie Press Club Music Awards in which the group won for Best duo/group. The group had been silent until an official announcement they released at the Manila Bulletin Entertainment on November 5, 2009, confirming that Juris Fernandez was leaving M.Y.M.P. They said in the statement that they are parting ways due to “irreconcilable professional differences.”

However, since they are working on an album when the breakup happened, they also said they will work together to finish the five songs they already had recorded, although the outcome will not be released as M.Y.M.P’s, but as Fernandez’s solo album with Alcantara as the producer. Alcantara also stated that he is looking for new band members as a replacement of Juris, and Fernandez on the other hand will start in her solo career under Star Records.
