"Ezequiel de Lima, the Argentinian Hidden Gem"

“Space, the final frontier.” It’s a quote that many of us, especially those who grew up with the original Star Trek series, are familiar with and have likely uttered numerous times. In music, America is the final frontier. It is the country that most artists, whether they are from the US or another country, want to achieve success. It’s not just that the US market represents the most lucrative or possesses some of the top record labels and radio personalities on the planet, MTV, and huge entertainment opportunities. It is also because the US indie music scene is among the most diverse, and where their music will most likely be heard. It is also home to some of the most influential artists, such as Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, and on and on.

For Ezequiel de Lima, his dream is to tour in the US and for his music to be heard. Currently based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, de Lima once played lead guitar for an indie-rock band called Blak Lyons. However, he’s now embarked on a solo career, one that deviates from his previous project’s sound. Influenced by the likes of Townes Van Zandt and Justin Vernon as well as European songwriters Nick Drake and The Tallest Man on Earth, de Lima’s music is acoustic driven and is a combination of alt-country and folk. With his finger-plucking guitar skills and his soft vocals, I reminded of under-the-radar singer-songwriter, Louisiana-born and Brooklyn-based Zachary Cale.

In February of this past year, Ezequiel de Lima released his debut EP, Kaleidoscope. The six-track album is simple and unpretentious in its sound yet warn and rich in its stories. Like many great songwriters, de Lima masterfully uses allegory to depict his feelings, such as on the opening song “Kaleidoscope”, the stunning “Hologram”, or the closing ballad “Her”. There is also contradiction in his songs, which is intentional, to tell different points of view, which he does exquisitely with “The Only Ones” and “Dead & Gone”.

Despite his golden voice and a beautiful debut, de Lima doesn’t feel at home in Buenos Aires. As he explains on his website, he feels like an outsider to the current Argentinian music scene because his music is English-based and his sound is that often associated with America. As a result, de Lima is planning to tour the west coast of the US early in 2016, where he hopes to find appreciative audiences and possibly somewhere that feels like home.

Purchase Ezequiel de Lima Kaleidoscope on Bandcamp and help him achieve his dream. Follow him on his social media sites to get more information about his forthcoming tour. - The Revue (CA)


"Ezequiel de Lima estrena el video de "Kaleidoscope""

Ezequiel de Lima presentó en estos días un videoclip para “Kaleidoscope”, tema extraído de su EP con el mismo nombre que se editó en febrero de este año.

El clip fue filmado por Joaquín Ignacio Brito en el Jardín Botánico de Buenos Aires. Si aún no escucharon Kaleidoscope, lo pueden hacer en Bandcamp. Cuenta con seis canciones que no tienen desperdicio –ya les estaremos contando más-.

Kaleidoscope estará llevando a Ezequiel por una gira de tres meses en Estados Unidos, pasando por California, Utah y Arizona para terminar con una residencia en Nashville de enero a marzo del año que viene. Hay que aprovecharlo mientras lo tengamos.

"Mellowing the Mood"

I think it's always important to have a few folk tracks that allow you to slow your musical roll and get inside your head a bit. This genre is especially fantastic for sitting with a tub of ice cream and ugly crying about a past lover, or because the supermarket just discontinued your favourite brand of yam chips. Either way Ezequiel de Lima is a singer/songwriter from Buenos Aires and he's serenading your folk inspired sessions of introversion. With a great voice and mindful lyrics he's sure to do the job right. -R - Ladywood Music

Bio

Genesis
Ezequiel de Lima started his solo project as an acoustic folk singer-songwriter recently while in a crisis with his indie roots rock band, Blak Lyons and the nonconformity with the local music scene.  Influenced by acoustic artists such as Nick Drake, The Tallest Man on Earth and Jose Gonzalez, he started playing around with alternative tunings and finger picking patterns on his guitar which led to songs where the vocals and the guitar are sufficient to charm and transport the listener to his intimate cosmovision.
The project got serious when he recorded some songs on the forest and uploaded them to the internet. The sound engineer of Blak Lyons' LP heard them and was moved deeply by the songs and offered Ezequiel to record an EP, free of charge, at his home studio.
Background
This project might be new but Ezequiel is no stranger to the music scene. As the leader and main composer for Blak Lyons, he recorded an EP and a LP that were reviewed favorably in Argentina (indiehoy) and internationally (mex, UK, UK2, among others) and played at the most important venues of Buenos Aires, The Roxy and C.C. Matienzo. When the drummer left to pursue his air pilot career, Ezequiel knew he had to fulfill his own dream with the freedom that a solo project allows.
