The Anatomy of Letting Go(LP)-2009



“By the album's midpoint, you're deep into the personal, unfiltered emotional territory that distinguishes his music from the average lighthearted romp through adult-contemporary radio sappiness.”

“An impressive reworking of South FM's "Killing Me," is, save the lyrics, a whole new listen; and on "Do You Believe," the album even takes an uplifting turn. So it's not all sad days here. There's also an element of redemption and inner strength through survival.”

Alan Ayo, Dallas Observer

In August 2009, Paco Estrada, the former front man of SouthFM (MCA/Brando Records), and his band One Love released “The Anatomy of Letting Go,” a refreshingly progressive yet accessible alternative album. Drawing influences from artists as diverse as Peter Gabriel, Damien Rice, and Gnarls Barkley, the 15-track release pushes the boundaries of pop music from start to finish.

After SouthFM disbanded in 2006, Paco launched a solo career, mesmerizing audiences with his voice and acoustic guitar. In 2007, Paco discovered innovative percussionist Robbie Hamilton at a songwriter’s night in a humble Dallas venue. Robbie mutually introduced electric violin virtuoso Zuriel shortly thereafter, and a trio was born. Both musicians brought a sound both improvised and refined that transformed Paco’s old songs and opened up a myriad of possibilities for brand new and unreleased material. Paco added versatile bassist Emsy Robinson to the fold in 2008, and the group began performing as Paco Estrada & One Love.

The group recorded “The Anatomy of Letting Go” at studios in Dallas, Texas and enlisted audio mastermind Derek Taylor (Blue October, Burden Brothers, the Hide and Seek motion picture soundtrack) to mix and master the album.

Paco Estrada & One Love continues to support “The Anatomy of Letting Go” with regional touring in major cities across Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. The band has shared a stage with Midwest Kings, featuring American Idol winner David Cook, and popular regional acts Eyes Burn Electric, Mother’s Anthem, and Nothing More. Collectively, the musicians in the band have opened for national acts such as Evanescence, Jewel,Staind,Blue October,Third Eye Blind, R&B superstar Chaka Khan, and toured with the internationally renowned Drum Bugle Corps.

Since 2008, the group has operated under a No Management No Label policy. Funded by Reckless Love LLC, Paco's home business, the band has aimed at creating a live following and a dedicated fan base across Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana through the use of visual and audio marketing online, as well as constant regional touring. Although the group is considering corporate intervention, the building of the fan base has relied on a grass roots approach that can best be described by the words of Mr. Estrada himself, a phrase that epitomizes the band's approach to opening hearts and minds with quality artist content and presentation..."

“It only takes a spark to set the world on fire.”
