The group consisted of 5 guys namely: Mike Gabriel, Alex Bacani, Jayr Sillona, Jimmy Martinez (who came with Jay-R to Manila) and Owen Amurao. When Mike, Owen and Alex went their separate ways, Jay-R and Jimmy continued the group by adding another talented singer named Kris Cadevida. They would do gigs in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Michigan. Jay-R also belonged to a band that was lead by his Uncle, Robert Sillona.
The band was called The Howlers. Being part of his uncle’s band was a huge part in Jay-R’s career... it taught him the ways of the stage! He is currently signed under Universal Records. His first album, aptly titled ‘Game Face’, has 12 tracks on it, containing 2 original Tagalog songs: “Kaibigan”, written by his sister, Jhing Sillona; and “Bakit Pa Ba?” written by Vehnee Saturno.
