How Jonas Lozano Started?

Lozano started as a solo artist together with other aspiring musicians and began showcasing his original tracks in September 2020 and performed them at an intimate music event organized by the members of Ilonggo Indie Bands Artists Portal (IIBAP).

Ilonggo indie Bands & Artists Portal (IIBAP) - a support group composed of passionate local musicians focusing on writing and producing original tracks in Iloilo City, helped Lozano achieve his standing today. IIBAP was founded by Markuz Malunda of JAAM, Jon Carlo Monte of Onda Spot, Derf Dicen of LnD, Roger Caballero, and other important people. 

Jon Carlo Monte, one of the core persons of IIBAP took the initiative of submitting the song compilations of Lozano to Madhouse Music Radio and Hit Radio Online through DJ H Henry Nobleza for airplay, both were music radio stations based in Metro Manila.

Lozano's highly contentious song entitled "I Will" was one of the few songs which have been airing on online radios around the Philippines. 

Music and Personal Life

Lozano describes himself as quiet but can be talkative with people he is comfortable with. He considers himself immensely loving and friendly. According to him, he could often fall into misunderstandings with the people around him because of his unusual and intense expression of affection. 

When he was starting out, his father used to buy him his favorite icon's music albums but did not support him recording his compositions. Moreover, his father did not allow him to play in a band. On the other hand, his mother was always there for him giving him support. However, his mom was not impressed with some of the lyrics of his songs which are full of torment and despair.

Jonas Lozano is good at conveying his emotions through music. He is a natural performer and a great songwriter. He succeeded in producing and publishing his music with the help of his friends and colleagues, inspiring so many people.

Following his continuous exposure and appearances on different social media channels nationwide, Lozano indeed was able to inspire many artists to keep on growing for things that make them feel alive.

Right now, Lozano has two songs on Spotify (Kanta Ni Kring II; Gusto Ko Sana) giving him revenue and joy. According to Lozano, life was not always good for him. He encountered so many problems including physical health issues and mental breakdowns. He also had a challenging relationship setup with his girlfriend Kring for a long time, who is the subject of most of his songs.

Despite that, Lozano remained resilient, patient, and trusting in God who never gave up on him.
