Meet Filipino musician John Borja. Don’t worry, I haven’t heard of him either. But we might get to know him a lot better very soon.
He’s rumoured to be the new singer in Stone Temple Pilots.
“Although there has been no official confirmation that Borja has the job, he indicated on Facebook that he recently took a trip to the U.S. during the first week of September, while also posting a photo of himself with STP bassist Robert DeLeo and DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen, taken last week in San Juan Capistrano, California. The latter two musicians currently play together in the blues project DELTA DEEP. What remains unclear is the nature of Borja‘s trip.
Asked by the Filipino web site Radio Republic to comment on the reports that he is being considered for the singer position in STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, Borja said: “As of now, I can’t give the full details yet, but there are clues or hints that seem to be favorable to me.
“Let’s wait for them to give the official announcement.”
He added: “I respect the guys’ decision, whatever it is. It would be my honor to play music with them.””
So how does he sound? Here’s his audition videos
