Last friday, Enzo of RX tweeted about this very amazing male version of Rihanna’s Take A Bow. I clicked the link and found this asian-looking guy singing not just a cover of Take A Bow, but actually singing his own “reply” version of the song.
His name is Gabe Bondoc. I was instantly amazed with his voice and talent in playing the guitar. Gabe Bondoc is popular indie pop/acoustic artist based in San Mateo, California. He is of full Filipino descent. He rose to fame with his One Take Sessions of famous songs and his own compositions in video blogging site, Youtube. (http://www.youtube.com/user/gabebondoc)
Since then, he has held a lot of shows across the West Coast. More so, he has already released two EPs, “Gentlemen Don’t” in 2006 and “Hi, My Name is Gabe” in 2007. (http://www.last.fm/music/Gabe+Bondoc/+wiki)
