How does a son of a successful actor-singer, the country’s so-called ultimate heartthrob, prove his mettle and make a name for himself?
For Inigo Pascual, it is more than just having the good looks and a famous last name he got from his dad, Piolo Pascual. It is having the talent, the skills, a sense of purpose, and a big dream.
With his self-titled, pop-dance album, he finally comes into his own as his passion for music – his first love – takes center stage in his career.
Inigo’s passion for music goes back to his childhood when he learned to play the piano at the age of seven – all by himself. At 12, he already knew how to play the guitar and ukulele. It was also the first time Inigo wrote a song, called “Fallen,” which is included in his album. He also dabbled in theater when he played Link Larkin in the musical “Hairspray” in high school.
As he appeared in teleseryes and movies, he also started showcasing his musical chops. He recorded the song “Lullabye Bye” for Star Music’s “OPM Fresh” album, which enlisted up-and-coming artists, and he wrote the song “Dito” for his episode in “Wansapanataym” in 2015.
Now that he has made his dream come true by releasing his first album, the road is going to be lot bumpier and more exciting for Inigo. And like his musical influences Sam Concepcion, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Nick Jonas, Inigo is ready to be a total performer – to produce the next big hit, top music charts, and start a dance craze with his first single “Dahil Sa’yo”.
“Inigo Pascual” contains three of his compositions: his first single “Dahil Sa’yo,” “Fallen,” and “Dito.”
Completing the track list are his cover of “Binibini,” and all-original songs “That Hero” composed by Jonathan Manalo, “Your Love” composed by Shorya Shorma & Samuel Simpson – Singaporean-based and from Academy of Rock composers, “Ikaw at Ako” composed by Gabriel Tagadtad and “Live Life Brighter” by Miles Blue Sy – composer of Gimme 5’s “Hatid Sundo” and the bonus tracks “Lullabye Bye” and “Dito (Acoustic).”
The album was produced by Kidwolf, who also worked on songs by Star Music artists Marion Aunor, Gimme 5, and Matteo Guidicelli. It is now available on Spotify, and physical copies will be available soon nationwide at P199. The digital tracks can also be downloaded via online music stores such as ABS-CBN Store, iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, OneMusic.ph, and Starmusic.ph.

INIGO PASCUAL, NATUPAD NA ANG PANGARAP NA SOLO ALBUM
Paano nga ba papatunayan ng anak ng isa sa pinakasikat na actor-singers sa bansa ang kanyang sarili at lugar sa industriya?
Para kay Inigo Pascual, hindi sapat ang good looks at sikat na pangalang namana niya mula sa kanyang amang si Piolo Pascual.
Ngayon, handa nang ipakita ni Inigo ang kanyang ibubuga sa pamamagitan ng kanyang kauna-unahang self-titled na pop-dance album na nagpapakita ng kanyang talento at kakayahan.
Ayon kay Inigo, katuparan ito ng matagal na niyang pangarap dahil first love niya ang musika. Sa katunayan, bata pa lang siya ay napamahal na siya dito, kaya naman sa edad na pito, natuto na siyang tumugtog ng piano nang walang ibang nagtuturo sa kanya. Noong 12 naman siya, natutunan niyang tumugtog ng gitara at ukulele.
Ito rin ang unang pagkakataong nakapagsulat siya ng kanta, ang “Fallen,” na kabilang din sa kanyang album. Noong high school naman, ginampanan naman niya ang papel na Link Larkin sa musical na “Hairspray.”
Magmula naman noong nagsimula siyang lumabas sa mga teleserye at pelikula, sabay din niyang naipapakita ang kanyang talento sa musika. Napasama siya sa “OPM Fresh,” album ng Star Music, sa awiting “Lullabye Bye” kasama ang iba pang up-and-coming artists. Noong 2015, nakasulat siya ng kantang “Dito” para sa episode ng “Wansapanataym” na pinagbidahan niya.
Ngayong natupad na niya ang kanyang pangarap magkaroon ng album, mas magiging at mahirap ang tatahaking landas ni Inigo. Gaya ng musical influences niyang sina Sam Concepcion, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, at Nick Jonas as musical influences, handa rin si Inigo na makilala bilang isang total performer, magkaroon ng hits, at magpauso ng isang dance craze ng kanyang unang single “Dahil Sa’yo”.
Laman ng “Inigo Pascual” ang tatlong compositions niya: ang unang single niyang “Dahil Sa’yo,” “Fallen,” at “Dito.”
Kasama rin sa track list ang cover niya ng “Binibini,” pati na ang original songs na “That Hero” isinulat ni Jonathan Manalo, “Your Love” isinulat nila Shorya Sharma at Samuel Simpson na Singaporean-based at mula sa Academy of Rock na songwriters, “Ikaw at Ako” isinulat ni Gabriel Tagadtad and “Live Life Brighter” isinulat ni Miles Blue Sy – sumulat ng ‘Hatid Sundo’ ng Gimme 5, at bonus tracks na “Lullabye Bye” and “Dito (Acoustic).”
Ang album ay ipinrodus ni Kidwolf, na nakatrabaho na rin ng Star Music artists na sina Marion Aunor, Gimme 5, at Matteo Guidicelli. Mapapakinggan na ito sa Spotify at mabibili na rin nationwide soon sa halagang P199. Ang digital tracks naman ay maaaring i-download sa online music stores gaya ng ABS-CBN Store, iTunes, Mymusicstore.com.ph, Amazon.com, OneMusic.ph, at Starmusic.ph.
