I'm an amateur songwriter from Granite Bay, California. Originally from the Philippines, I grew up listening to Pinoy rock bands of the 90s like the Eraserheads and Parokya Ni Edgar. Mostly influenced by the legendary Eraserheads frontman Ely Buendia, I started writing songs back in 2001 and it has been my passion ever since. Decades later, I have decided to share my songs to the world by producing and releasing my songs to mainstream media.

When I started my songwriting journey 20+ years ago, my best friend asked me to write a song for him and his wife, Jen. Finally, I was able to grant his request with "Always", the 3rd track in my upcoming album "Ang Sarap Kantahin, Ang Sarap Gitarahin".
"With A Frown" Video Now Available
January 23, 2023
"With A Frown" is the 2nd track in my upcoming album "Ang Sarap Kantahin, Ang Sarap Gitarahin". Inspiration for this song came about as I was listening to the Eraserhead’s “With A Smile”. At first I wanted to do a parody, but the slow, ballad-like melody that continuously hummed in my head while writing the song warranted a serious mood.
"Ang Sarap Kantahin, Ang Sarap Gitarahin"

My latest album "Ang Sarap Kantahin, Ang Sarap Gitarahin" drops on Feb 23, 2023*. It includes 2 previously released singles "Busko Pa Rin" & "Multo". It opens with the Eraserheads tribute song "Ang Pambansang Banda" followed by a flurry of easy-listening songs like "With A Frown", "Always", "When?"and "Nag-iisa".
Indeed, this 9-track album is "masarap kantahin, at masarap gitarahin".
