Lyka was born in Manila, Philippines (October 29 1988) and is of Filipina-Spanish/Japanese/Hawaiian heritage. Fluent in English, Tagalog & Spanish (Currently learning French). She's a talented actress, dancer, former child-model, a singer/rapper, songwriter and musician.
At the age of 9 Lyka joined a choir at school in which she was booted-out off because her voice drowned-out the other singers. "I had a very mature & strong voice for my age and it was hard for me to flow with the other voices. I was a bit of a stage freak when I was younger, I loved the spotlight and solo attention." At Age 11 Lyka started playing the piano & also write her own song lyircs. "One day at Intermediate school there was an audition for 'The Band' ( it was called 'Overdose') so I decided to go for it, My music teacher Ms Cranston told me that I sing like an angel. I was very much impacted by what she said, although I didnt made the cut for the band. I grew from that experience. She was so cool! The next day I thought to myself its better going solo than being in a band... So I bought a guitar, and decided that I can be the one-girl-band of my own." At age 16 then moved on and learnt to play drums and is currently pursuing as a drummer for filipina band 'Tagalog po Kami' while settling in as a solo artist of her own.
