Warren Garcia undoubtedly has a natural charisma and incredible talent to build showbiz, err.. singing career. He uses his voice to positively impact others and to launch his own YouTube Channel called ‘Warren Garcia’ – that is steadily pulling in more subscribers.
In a sea of aspiring hopefuls, this 20-year old young man from Calasiao, Pangasinan easily stands out. Right now, he is working hard to attract the right opportunities to gain official entry into the music industry. Warren is definitely the artist to keep an eye on.
Unbeknownst to us, he was actually a shy young boy. “Mahiyain talaga ako at mahilig mapag-isa. Noong elementary, hindi ako masyadong sociable”, says Warren.
“May stage fright din ako. Unti-unti ko lang itong nabago sa tulong ng music at mga artists na nag-influence sa akin. Ang musika rin ang naging takbuhan ko kapag may problema. Nagiging kalmado ako kapag kumakanta.”
It was a television show that made an impact. “After school ay napapanood ko ang palabas na MYX. Yung segment na ‘MYX Daily Top 10’. Araw-araw ay inaabangan ko ito. So, doon na nagsimula ang hilig ko sa pagkanta.” Referring to Pinoy MYX Countdown which has a weekly roundup of the most popular videos from Filipino music artists.
Warren admits of not being good at playing the guitar, at first. “Natuto lang ako noong bumili ang ate ko ng second-hand guitar sa kaibigan niya.”
“Sa highschool, I joined jingle-making and singing contests. Pati sa ‘HimTop Voices’ kung saan nahasa ako magperform sa maraming tao.”
Through the years, he honed his skills and conquered shyness. “Naging routine ko na ang pakikinig at panunood ng music videos. Ito ang nagpapagaan sa loob ko at nagbibigay ng peace of mind.”
As for music influences, these are Boyce Avenue, The Script, Coldplay, Ben And Ben, John Roa, AJ Rafael, and more. “Na-inspire ako sa galing nilang makabuo ng kanta out of their experiences na tumatagos sa puso.”
At present, Warren has his heart set to be a bankable artist. “I keep on practicing at nagko-compose ng mga kanta. Gumagawa din ng covers na ina-upload ko sa YouTube. Patuloy pa rin ako nage-explore sa musika.”
He also transformed into a mature young artist. “I am thankful to all those who supported and encouraged me to improve my craft.”
And he has this advice to fellow aspiring artists. “Lumabas kayo sa mga comfort zones ninyo. How are you are going to reach the top if you’re afraid to take chances. You got to let your feet off the ground now!”
Indeed, Warren is making his way into the music industry. It will not be surprising that one day, he will be one of the most in-demand artists of his generation. After all, he is irresistibly charming, talented, and relatable to his legion of followers.
