Cueshé is a Filipino pop rock band from Cebu, Philippines, currently based in Manila.


In March 2005, the band decided to move to the Philippine capital of Manila. The group achieved hit singles ("Stay", "Sorry", "Ulan", "Can't Let You Go" and "24 Hours"), a double platinum album (Half Empty, Half Full), accolades (Favorite Artist, Favorite Group and Favorite Song—for the song "Stay" at the 1st MYX Music Awards; SMART Texters’ Choice Hitmaker of the Year at the 2006 MTV Pilipinas Awards; Band of the Year at the 2006 SOP PasiklaBand Awards; and Best Breakthrough Artist at the 2005 SOP Music Awards), within the span of a year.[citation needed]

Less than a year later, the band released their second album, Back to Me. The new album contained ten new tracks, all of which were written by the band members themselves. The first single from the album was of the same title, followed by three more singles "Borrowed Time", "Bakit?" and "Pasensya Na". Being fans of The Beatles, they also did a remake of the John Lennon hit single "Jealous Guy". In 2008, a third album was released entitled Driven, which spawned the three singles "BMD", "There Was You" and "Minsan". In 2010 the band release their fourth and latest album Life, containing the singles "Pangako", "Lupit", and "Sana".

The band also made a contribution to The Eraserheads tribute album, Ultraelectromagneticjam!: The Music Of The Eraserheads, on which they sang their own rendition of "Hard To Believe" (originally from the album Sticker Happy; released on 1997).

The band also recorded the theme song of the Philippine television series Asian Treasures entitled "Walang Yamang (Mas Hihigit Sa 'Yo)", which is included in the repackaged version of their album Back to Me.

On 2015, the band released a new single titled "Ikaw Lamang" and announced they were to release a new album soon. The music video premiered in September 2015.[1]
