About Me

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.

"With A Frown" Video Now Available

"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.
