Born in the Philippines, RV is based in Detroit, Michigan, where, as an active member of LGBTQ+ spaces, he organizes events and performances. He has performed on stages across the world, including Detroit, Chicago, Toronto, Paris, Manila, New York City, Lyon, and Quebec City.
Since being heard on MTV’s hit show "Teen Wolf" in 2013 with Flint Eastwood, the demand for RV's songwriting led to the release of his first album, "Uhaw Island," in March 2018. In May 2018, he finished a three-month tour in Manila, Philippines, as an Artist in Residency with Pineapple Lab, an arts and performance hub.
RV’s catchy personality has been featured in Buzzfeed, TEAM Magazine and Scout among others.
