JOHN LOUIE V. ABAIGAR

Personal Profile

John Louie AbaigarI am 22 years old, born on the 12th of October 1986, I stand 5’8 and the only son of Bill and Ditas Abaigar, I studied classical music at the Conservatory of Music of Centro Escolar University. My music spans from ballad, jazz, classics to operatic.

GMA 7 Pinoy Pop Superstar Year Yr. 3 Luckily made me its 7th finalist. The competition enabled me to prove my versatility as an artist, when they tried to test my mettle as rocker and by providing musical pieces that in the past would be near impossible for me to even try-ranging from the likes punk rock, and alternative to hardcore.

I came to point where I adjusted fully to that persona, loving its freedom, its angst and its drive. Engaging with the beat of drums, the roar of the crowd, and the feeling which is very refreshing. I learned how to dance and groove to its rhythm – disco RnB and Bossa Nova.

I guess I can say that I am a fast learner, but if someone would assist me in the process, I would really be willing to learn, hone and sharpen my talent and craft to the best of my ability.

Also, since middle school I was able to compose and have compiled sorts of compositions which may have some influence of current sounds, but largely leave a personal touch to mine.

I even tried to come up with a genre which I’d like to call “Classical Rock”. This is a type of music where full voice using classical vibrato blends with distortions and harmonixes with the beat of the drums. I am not exactly sure how many did this already though. I have couple of compositions of this genre that I would really like to share and hopefully be appreciated.

Accomplishments:
