Pablo Villatoro left Group 1 Crew in 2011 to focus on his brand-new marriage and pursue other opportunities, leaving the band as a duo at the time. Since then, Blanca has set out on her own and Manwell Reyes is fronting the group.
After a few years of largely working outside music, serving in the church, forming a creative agency and doing speaking engagements, Villatoro announced on his birthday, Aug. 31, that he’s releasing new music in late 2016. The new record will be called RBLS N LGNDS (“rebels and legends”), and he said people will hear his “entire journey compiled into one musical piece.”
He promised a debut single “really, really soon.”
