Ryan Lagup

Bio: Ryan Lagup aka Ryan Villanueva Pugal (born August 5th) is a Filipino American Singer Songwriter, Radio Personality & Master of Ceremonies (MC) a top five finalist (fourth runner up) on season one’s talent competition “Famecast”. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii Ryan’s parents (Mother, Virginia and Father, Esteban Pugal) migrated form the Phillipines to the Island of Oahu, Hawaii.

“I was influenced by artists who were proving something when they broke off from their groups,” Lagup says, citing Bobby Brown and Ralph Tresvant after New Edition, Steve Perry after Journey, and George Michael after Wham!. “When George left Wham! he wanted to show the world that he could produce records like ‘Careless Whisper’ and ‘Father Figure’ on his own,” Lagup says. “He didn’t do it in vengeful way. He was just showing people how musical he was. That was really my goal as well.”
