ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Prepare yourself for a short but intense journey with this 5-song EP that precedes the forthcoming full-length album.

Cuentos del Nuevo Mundo (Tales From The New World).
The inspiration for this work comes from the artist’s Mexican roots that translate into 3 beautiful stories encompassing love, fantasy and ancient legends all sung with soulful and vibrant vocals surrounded by a small collection of acoustic instruments. Elves dancing to The Moon, a couple in love that gives its origin to the whole Mixteca culture, and a tormented soul in the search for the much needed love that will keep it from bullying others, a timeless tale that despite our efforts still fits in any world.

Another story comes from the modern world, where the artist pays homage to the great Věra Čáslavská who won the gymnastics olympic championship in Mexico ’68 and was brave enough to protest against Soviet occupation of her native Czechoslovakia; her bravery made her an icon for Mexicans, she bonded so much that many gave her the moniker of “Mexico’s Bride”. The song features a full mariachi arrangement that makes up for an epic performance of an epic story from the New World.

Last but not least, another homage to one of Mexico’s most iconic songwriters, the one and only, Álvaro Carrillo, who’s work has been inspiration for many artists and a tribute with a song dedicated to the Mexican South-Pacific felt just tight.

Within this record you will find a beautiful and precise interpretation in each and every instrument with rhythm guitars that go from sweet arpeggios to steady and powerful chord strums; violins that in one song will be a wall of sound and in the other will be soulful and mellow. But most of all, an organic sound that wants to make the listener comfortable to enjoy the ride.

More is to come but for now, enjoy this record that will make you sing along every song.
