"Rodrigo Vazquez: In His Own Words"

Here’s some great music for a Sunday. Says Rodrigo: “Imagine if John Mayer, Kings of Convenience, and Jorge Drexler got together to burn their guitars in the fires of Two-Door Cinema Club. From these ashes rises a Dr. Luke inspired melody. This is what (I like to think) my music sounds like.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Especially seeing as I wasn’t familiar with Drexler until now. If you’re in the same boat, give his tune Fusión a listen after treating yourself to a couple songs by Vazquez. (To round out the picture, listen to an acoustic version of TDCC’s hit song Undercover Martyn, and Kings of Convenience’s 2009 single Boat Behind, too.)

A more international concoction, by the way, you’ll be hard pressed to find. Kings of Convenience are Norwegian, Jorge Drexler is Uruguayan, Two-Door Cinema Club is from Northern Ireland, and Mayer and Dr. Luke are American. And Rodrigo himself is from Puerto Rico. - The Acoustic Version


Still working on that hot first release.



Rodrigo Vazquez has been playing the guitar since the 7th grade, quickly joining his friends in a fledgeling punk-rock band. Since then he has gone through several stylistic periods, exploring bands as diverse as Between The Buried and Me, Incubus, Nirvana, John Mayer, Coheed and Cambria, Duncan Sheik, and others. Rodrigo aims to blend these influences into an irresistibly catchy pop smoothie.
