New singer-songwriter Gio Marlo is one to watch out for in 2021

Only 21 years old, Gio Marlo’s brand of accessible pop built from R&B grooves and chilled soulfulness, is one the reasons why the OPM music scene is getting more exciting.

Inspired by a recent breakup, his debut single “Akala” talks about how the person you were hoping to end up with turns out to be the one who will be hurting you instead.

Gio is currently a music production major in one of the major universities in the country. His passion for music started when he was in Grade 11 and has since been writing his own compositions non-stop. One of his musical influences is William Singe and that he gets inspiration from William’s covers on YouTube.

His song covers on TikTok exhibit the versatility of his voice. He can soothe his audience with his rendition of OPM ballads from Eraserheads, Noel Cabangon, The Juans, Ben & Ben, Arthur Nery and Silent Sanctuary to international hits by Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, LANY and Justin Bieber.

Akala is now available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, and all digital stores worldwide under Universal Records.
