Baritone | Co-Producer (Video & Marketing) | Malaysian Sabahan | KL based
I am Joe – a mixed blood (Pakistan/Philippines) and I sing Baritone in Colour Of Voices. I was born in 1990 in a small town called Lahad Datu, Sabah. I ventured into singing in high school and began to do it more seriously during my years at the University by joining ‘The Students Art and Culture Club’, where I was actively involved in many singing competitions/events and won many awards.
I’m currently running my own business in Digital Marketing and simultaneously pursuing a Diploma in Professional Social Media Marketing from Shaw Academy, USA. Apart from that, I also offer some photo-video services; I am constantly developing my skills.
When talking about myself as a person, I would say that I am a friendly, loving guy with a good sense of humour. I believe that my strengths are – being flexible by nature, being open minded, ready to take on new challenges especially while doing what I love. When it comes to my work and whatever I am assigned to do, I can be considered a perfectionist.
My passion for A Cappella music started to develop when I first watched Pentatonix in 2011; they won season 1 of The Sing Off. Since then, I became obsessed with A Cappella and made PTX my reference point for vocal arrangement. I met the rest of the COV members in 2015 when Pentatonix held their concert here in Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur. I still remember that priceless feeling when I first jammed with the guys while queuing up to enter the stadium, that’s when I realized that this group is where I belong!
