He joined with Dani Fernández (who had also participated in Eurovision Junior in 2006) and he and three other members (Carlos Marco, Alvaro Gango and David Lafuente) formed the group called Auryn inspired by the name of a mystical talisman ' The endless story'.

With the group already formed the boys decided to present the Eurovision Song Contest through the Spanish TV program 'Eurovision'. Auryn was on the verge of representing Spain as Galician Lucia Perez was chosen to represent us in the Festival that year. Still, the group decided to continue releasing their first album in 2010.
