Biography

Jorge Alberto Perez, better known by his stage name DC Cruz, is an American singer, songwriter, rapper, and mixed media artist of Latin decent. His musical styles include an integration of Pop-Rap, Latin Pop with a heavy touch of Dance music genres. Growing up his fascination for music led him to join chorus groups, bands and school plays which coming from a musical family seemed like a natural fit.

By his teen years DC began modeling full time affording him the opportunity to work for brands such as Versace, Guess, Adidas and many others both in Miami and NYC. In his early 20’s not only had he modeled for major world brands but he had done movies, commercials, runway and magazine covers on a national level. Upon his return from NYC DC decided to embark on his life’s dream of becoming a professional singer. During this time he joined several groups that eventually disbanded but afforded him the opportunity to become a solo act.

In 2010 DC made his musical debut with a Salsa Pop anthem named “Mami”. He spent the next three years performing in everything from local TV shows, Winter Music Conference Parties, private events and clubs. Not only was his music career as a singer/song writer booming but he had also landed several radio talk show gigs including the popular “Accesso Total” which aired Saturday mornings in Tamaulipas, Mexico for a listening audience of over 30,000. This success allowed him the platform to release his first English single and original concept video titled: “Take Down” where his darker, edgier side which had never been seen or heard before debuted.

As a major creative artist DC is known for his unique style and visionary concepts. He’s not just a singer/songwriter but director, producer and a foreshadowing creative storyteller for pop culture. By 2011 his party dance anthem “Party Freak” allowed DC to create a name for himself within the indie music scene in and around South Florida landing him continued work

throughout all of 2011-2012.

His international debut came in 2012 with the release of his first internationally promoted single “Mr. Hollywood” on iTunes. The success continued as he began collaborating with other DJs and producers on tracks for other albums while working on his own first full-length album titled “Protogenoi” which dropped on his birthday (Feb 13, 2014). DC’s image also seemed to be well received in the LGBT community who welcomed him with open arms. During 2011-2015 DC continued to make headlines performing in bigger venues and festivals, becoming a regular at the highly popular Celebrate Orgullo Latin annual pride festival in Miami Beach. He helped raise funds for several causes including in 2013 where over $40,000 was collected through the Broward House musical showcase, “Broward Bares it All at Hard Rock Live”. By 2014 DC had joined the ranks of VEVO artists and released his first short music video film which won him much praise from his peers.

In 2015 Cruz switched gears and released one major Dance EP

through “It’s Not a Label Records”  titled “HTF- Butterfly” which got strong digital airplay and attention from DJs worldwide with remixes playing from Brazil to Albania. In 2016 DC added to his ever growing brand by launching skytowerstudio.com, a mixed-media production company helping small businesses, as well as, up and coming artists, develop industry quality content to help them reach new heights. His latest single “Paradise” is anticipated for release in late summer of 2016.
