He is currently a judge on The Voice of the Philippines and is billed as "The voice that rocked our world."
He was the voice that lead two of the Rock Band giants to stardom - Rivermaya and Bamboo. He worked with 9 albums, including his first solo-album with more than 15 hit-singles including rock anthems such as "214," "Himala," "Awit ng Kabataan," "Noypi," and "Tatsulok." He is the voice that turned women into fans and scream squads whether he is playing as the band’s frontman or doing a solo act.
He is in. And he is ready to win the game right before it starts. "Kamp Kawayan is here for the Voice, Kamp Kawayan is in it to win it!"
Bamboo returns to The Voice of the Philippines not only to discover new, raw, and untapped vocal talents, but to give back to the industry who gave him the world. "May mga tinatawag tayong sleepers, magugulat na lang tayo sa mga kapasidad ng Kapamilya Artists. Minsan akala mo sa Amerika mo lang makikita yung ganong boses, meron din pala dito non. Ako kasi ang job ko as a coach, guidance lang. Kumbaga editing na lang."
