Since being the original trumpeter in the multi-platinum band Capital Cities (2012 – 2015), the Los Angeles-born, half-Filipino vocalist-instrumentalist has gone rogue, adding a new dimension of possibility to not only his sonic weapon of choice, but also to pop music. Just last year he earned himself a Latin Grammy for co-writing and performing on the track “Por Pura Curiosidad feat. Spencer Ludwig” on Fonseca’s album “Agustin”. In 2016 he was signed as a solo artist to Warner Records who released his debut single “Diggy” and launched his career through a global Target campaign. His songs have been featured in ads for Herbal Essences, the feature film Happy Death Day, and the video games Just Dance and Madden. Since becoming an independent artist and forming Trumpet Records in 2018, his songs have earned over a hundred ad, film and tv placements, and in 2019 he became one of the faces for Tommy Hilfiger’s global denim campaign. However, performing live is where he truly thrives. He’s performed at Lollapalooza, ACL, Hangout Festival, Bonnaroo, Corona Capital, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and has toured the US and Europe with Bebe Rexha, Betty Who and Fonseca. Aside from continuing his role as the band leader and musical director for the NFL Honors Awards show, his monthly residency called “Le Trumpet” will return this year to the Freehold in his hometown of Brooklyn, NY on the last Friday of the month starting in March and this summer he plans to release his debut album. With everything he does, he strives to promote living passionately while continuing to redefine what’s possible for himself and pop artists alike.
