Biography

Guitarist-Singer-Songwriter Rique Colón will release a recording production revamping himself into Latin Pop.

After 10 years of his previous tropical pop oriented recording ‘Sentido Tropical’ (Colono Records, 2006), Rique is reinventing his style of music but also twisting his artistic identity. His upcoming album (Amuleto, 2019) is more rock oriented. The sound blends a combination of Latin Retro Rock and powerful Pop Ballads all framed on a profound songwriting.

Rique, which is a Berklee College of Music Alumni, has a thorough understanding of his musical concepts and goals on his career. After releasing his first recording Rique has performed on numerous presentations in his native Puerto Rico but internationally. He has performed over 2,000 presentations resulting about 150 performances per year.

Rique Colon’s new album ‘Amuleto’ was recorded both in Puerto Rico and Los Angeles, California. The recording was produced by Rique himself and his partner Uziel Colón which both met at Berklee College in Boston, MA. The mixing was taken care by Multi-Grammy winner Benny Faccone and mastered by Tom Baker.


Lyrics

Amor febril

Written By: Rique Colon

(Colono Music Publishing/ASCAP)

Fogata es luz en la sombra
Que espanta el frio aqui en la arena
Poco a poco mis ideas brotan
Hasta aderirse a la marea

Es un incendio que agota
Y que a la vez enloquece
Sostengo mi nota
Para alegrarme bajo el fuego
En este anochecer

Y con tu estela en la penumbra
Te canto hasta el amanecer
Un elogio de mi gran amor
O una elegia por tu querer

Dime si es casualidad
que tus besos sean afines a mis labios
Dime si es casualidad
que en cuerpo y alma estas consagrada a mi querer

Es por tal conjuro de entender tu corazón
Que encontre el calor del fuego en mi sufrir
Fogata es luz en la sombra de mi amor;
Como es la pasion una inquietud para vivir

Es la enigma sobre la casualidad,
De nuestro amor febril.

Siempre supe que en mi vida, amor
Fuiste hecha para mi.
