It is a no-brainer why Joshua Bulot is now Lily’s lead vocalist, Bulot is the total package to lure the audiophiles to their quest of bringing cinematic rock to all.
“I am excited to sing the songs of Lily with my voice being heard by all. Yes, it cannot be denied that from time to time, I will get to perform their songs that became popular and was identified with their former frontman. I am just excited to put my vocal stamp to our latest song creation,” Bulot begins.
People in the know have a familiarity with Lily’s Bulot because he has graced fashion shows on ramp, shoots, and commercials. He also did a star-turning performance in the hit musical Rak of Aegis, and had his fair share of gigs as part of a pop group that made headlines in an international talent search.
Bulot reveals that he idolizes Callalily so when an audition for its new lead singer was announced, he knew that it was a now-or-never opportunity that he cannot ignore. Of course, his journey in the search is now part of Filipino pop culture history.
“I think I made it as their new lead singer because I am a passionate performer I give my all on stage. My theater background was most helpful in letting me decipher the subtexts and unspoken messages in a song. And I always give the emotional truth na required sa songs I think that is what the judges saw and appreciated,” he states.
Another scintillating aspect of Bulot is his sense of fashion. He confidently dons a fishnet see-thru crop top that showcases his toned body, and tattered jeans, and boy oh boy, to say that he loves to accessorize – rings, trinkets, and chains – is an understatement.
“My sense of fashion is like an homage to the main rockers of the ‘90s. They have a strong sense of what looks good on them and were never afraid of going androgynous, showing some skin, torsos n biceps. I always believe that what I wear is a form of self-expression. It is always liberating for man to be adventurous in what he wears, mix and match this and that The bottom line, especially in what I wear on stage, is if I feel comfortable and good, then I know it will look good. Then I put the supermodel attitude na fashion is what I wear and bring the swag, ayun! It works all the time for me,” he shares.
Aside from Bulot, completing the ban now known as Lily are drummer Lem Belaro, bass guitarist Aaron Ricafrent, rhythm, and lead guitarist Nathan Reyes, lead guitarist and backing vocals Alden Acosta.
On December 2, the reinvigorated and cinematic rock champions, Lily’s concert Magbalik happens at the Music Museum.

It is mind-blowing and heart-wrenching at the same time. We are presenting new songs that I am sure everyone will love and I guarantee na naka-LSS siya. When you get a bite, experience and savor our Lily kind of musical magic, I am affirmative that you will not only come back for seconds, but you will want it in musical heaps and more,” Bulot says of the concert.
