Don’t be fooled, this aint no PopAsia. No gangnam style or cheesy love ballads from this man! Van is an Australian indie artist migrated from the Philippines and based in Sydney from the tender age of 5. Growing up in the inner west has produced a competent guitarist and an innovative songwriter with an engaging voice.
Starting out as session guitarist for Sydneys top cover bands and various recording studios around town, he graduated with his own originals outfit and songwriting vehicle VAMPit.

Eleven years later, Van is promoting his 8th independently released album “Don’t Worry”, and continues to play anything from pubs, clubs, weddings, corporates, tours and festivals.
