Early Life

Ysmael Yrastorza Yuzon is the real name of Yael Yuzon. He was born on November 22, 1983 in Manila. He is also the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the Filipino band, Sponge Cola.

Yael Yuzon is the younger brother of Yanni Yuzon of bands, Pupil and Archipelago. Yael graduated at Ateneo de Manila University with the degree of English Literature.

It all started in 1998 when Gosh Dilay and Yael Yuzon spotted each other in Ateneo High School and met through the theater club, Teatro Baguntao. He was the front man of a rock band named White Chapel at that time. However, since he and Gosh Dilay met, he always felt the urge to form a new band with Gosh and two other members of the group. That was then they form a band and call it “Sponge”, named after R. S. Surtee’s Mr. Sponge’s Sporting Tour. However, soon after they formed Sponge, they learned about a Detroit grunge band already is using the name Sponge, that’s why they all agree to add “cola” in result of “Sponge Cola.” It gives their band name more semblances. This paved Yuzon’s way to fame and the popularity of the band, as they competed and won several recognitions.

After a few years, Yuzon and Gosh Dilay remained in the band while the two other members leave and were replaced by Christopher Cantada and Erwin Armovit. Erwin Armovit was a former guitarist of Rampqueen, which is the sister band of Sponge Cola. Yael’s career started early, though. His fame being the lead rock vocalist of the band has earned him many credits and awards as well. He and his band mates came up with a self-titled EP in the last quarter of 2003. This is enclosed with five original songs namely, “Saturn,” “Cigarette,” “Jeepney,” “Lunes,” and “A Tear.” These extensive songs have opened Yael’s ability to adjust his vocal range and his talent to shift from mellow to screamo tone without losing its touch. With their self-titled EP, he was able to get more shows, exposures, and concerts from all over the country.

He, too, managed to sing a version of Madonna’s “Crazy for You,” which then became such an admired underground internet hit. The favorable response from the public further led Yuzon and his band mates to larger opportunities. The band’s breakthrough in the mainstream was when they signed up for a record distribution under Sony BMG Records Philippines in their first full-length debut album. The band is now currently signed up for Universal Records.
