Manila-based acoustic singer/songwriter Lm Cancio makes laid-back, alternative pop music, with subtle nods toward folk and r&b. With his skillful guitar playing and aptitude for classy love songs, he always wins the crowd --be it a fully-packed dive bar or the whole wedding entourage.
His cold tenor voice is perfectly raw and smooth with the right hint of sultriness and depth. He started learning the guitar by himself when he was 12 years old and he hasn't stopped trying to master the instrument since then. Putting his guitar-playing and soulful voice to good use, he launched his first album (EP/extended play) last January. His musical influences are John Mayer, Jason Mraz, James Morrison, and Howie Day.
Lm quit his corporate job in his early-20's to pursue music full time. His first regular stint as a starving musician was with Janna Mallari and then later transitioned to being a part of another duo with Ai Dela Cruz. As he started coming out as a solo artist, his supporters kept following him where ever he goes. He's played in a handful of bars and lounges all over the metro: Route196 (Katipunan Extension), Black Kings Bar & Cafe (West Ave), Saguijo (Guijo St., Makati), Conspiracy Garden Cafe (Visayas Ave), Sessions Bar (Royale Place, Commonwealth), The Butcher Shop & Pub (BGC), 7th High (BGC), Cafe Alfonso (Leviste St., Makati), Discovery Suites Lounge (Ortigas), Pepetons (Panay Ave), Gustav's (Congressional Ave), Underground Bar (Tomas Morato), Last Home (Home Depot, Ortigas), Escape (Citywalk, Ortigas), and Locavore (Kapitolyo). On some weekends and occasional evenings, he's a popularly-demanded wedding singer or crooner for private parties. He has also written and recorded songs for GMA7's Reeltime and he has done JMM Covers and NMFTV guestings on YouTube.
Today, Lm has been maximizing opportunities as a local independent artist. He gives credit to the support of organizations like Amplify.ph and Pass The Hat Productions for his continuous growth in the music scene. He is currently working on his second album where a more mature and profound version of him is in process
