World Inspired Spanish Guitar
His musical journey began as a Professional Yachtsman traveling around the world. His Passion for Spanish Guitar was first inspired in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico by the duet, "Latcho and Andrea" as they conducted a passionate, and free spirited Spanish/Flamenco performance on his yacht.
From Mexico, Kuya Kano continued to travel around the world to various places from Europe, the Caribbean, Central America, and Southeast Asia. In the Philippines, he was tagged with the name Kuya Kano; "Kuya", a word respectfully addressing one as "big brother", and "Kano", slang word for American.
Kuya Kano released his first albums, "Imagine The Life" in 2012, and "Places I Dream Of", in 2013. Recently, Kuya Kano released his third album, "No Compass" in April 2018. (All music available at amazon.com and iTunes)
Kuya Kano has been featured in several television and radio appearances, including "The Business Side of Music", "The Advocate Radio" show, the "Toledo Newspaper". In the Pilippines he has appeared on "the Ryzza Mae Show" and as a guest on Manila's "Ask Reysie" radio music talk show.
Kuya Kano is a member of ASCAP, currently based in Puerto Princesa, Palawan in the Philippines.
All recordings on the albums, "Imagine The Life" are Copyright 2012, 2013 for "Places I Dream Of", and 2018 for "No Compass" by the United States Copyright Office.
