The bassist of the popular 90's band Side A, Joey composed hit songs for the band which include “I Believe in Dreams,” “By Your Side” and “Forevermore.”

Meanwhile, being a part of "Asap Rocks" A-pop, Jaco Benin is a familiar face to Kapamilya viewers.

Was Jaco being pressured by his dad?

"Si Dad, kilala na matalinong musikero so I just can't put out music na di pinagisipan. He doesn't pressure me to be like him at all but he guides me musically, tipong 'O, pag gagawa ka ng remake you should treat it like an original para you don't end up just copying,"' Jaco told the Manila Bulletin.

His six-track album is a combination of acoustic, upbeat tunes and laid back songs of which three are covers of hits, “Torete” (by Moonstar 88), “Sa Puso Ko” (True Faith) and “Prinsesa” (Teeth).
