Born In Hong Kong, Raised in Macau , Australia , California , NYC....Culture Shock is nothing new to me. Jun , also known as Junny which is short for Joventino Couto Remotigue J.R....I am a Juniour, to make life a bit less tongue twisting, Junny is what friends and family call me.
My father is Full Filipino(Cebu), Mother is part Chinese, part Portuguese and part Mexican.
I guess I am often misunderstood coz I know I can be intimidating. I guess I really don't bother explaining myself too much. I guess I express it better thru playing music. very cliche......
I play Music for a living and am neither undergound nor upperground.I guess my life is a contradiction to start with.
I love playing music but also love singing and playing the bass at the same time and also, doing a million things at the same time....Love the attention but hate the gossip. Them 2 seems to always go hand in hand.
Released 2 albums in 99 and 01, but soon got fed up with the canto pop lifestyle. Moved to Macau to focus on my craft and also erase the Pop-Idol image that was created for me from my previous Label....
I have always been involved in the Canto-pop business to pay bills and to cover my expenses doing creative/fun Music on the side.Like performing with my bands, "JUNK UNIT", Eugene & the "POWS" classic rock cover band.
I love performing in front of people, I don't think I know how to do anything else.
But if I could do it all over again, I would definately better myself,get a higher education and keep my day job !
Ever since the internet,the MusicBusiness is more conservative than it used to be, plainly coz albums don't sell anymore....Performing Live is what I do and what I know how to do, and is what people always go back to..live performances.....
I just have a talent to persuade great musicians to play for me....hahaha...Thats better than going to school !!!!
Friends are most important to me,Its not what I do, but the process of doing it.I am happy when I see people happy...
