Biography

This Chilean-born songwriter, who lives in Silverlake (Los Angeles), once fell under the spell of history, geography, international singers and “the old world,” or, as better said by a friend, by “a triumvirate spell of Latin romanticism, Catholic mysticism and American urban reality,” which inspired him to feverishly write music (being underpaid at endless uninspiring day jobs can do that as well). His main goal was to be a songwriter, but when one has no big connections and no famous name to live off, then one has to learn to sing and deliver their own songs, and that is how he began to perform. He started playing his music publicly in L.A.’s burgeoning cabaret open-mic scene (at places like the Vermont, the Gardenia and the Ten20), and not long afterwards began to get gigs, and has now played in some of L.A.'s best cabarets and night clubs, such as Bricktop's at the Parlour, M Bar, Lava Lounge, Tangier, Cabaret Voltaire, BMI Acoustic Lounge at Gengis Cohen and Room 5. In Fall 2005 his music was featured in the award winning musical Night Of The Black Cat, winner of the 2005 L.A. Music Award for Best Staged Musical, at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, and in early 2006 he self-released his first album, titled “Promis.”
