BandRockAcoustic

I'm a singer/songwriter performing with a supporting band in both rock and acoustic show formats. I was born and raised in Buenos Aires Argentina, and my writing is influenced by rock and latin styles. I have an album to be shortly released and a second album underway.

Biography

Originally from Buenos Aires Argentina, I'm a singer/song writer in music since I got my first guitar at the age of 9. I'm influenced by various genres and artists, from classic and progressive rock to latin and middle eastern styles. I came to the United States when I was 13. My upcoming album titled “Silence” is comes after a time of self-reflection starting this time. Starting my early teens I wrote hundreds of pages of words which turned into songs, which turned into an album. In the final phases of writing the the album I traveled through various parts of the world where I found inspiration. Some of my favorite places include Los Roques, Isla Margarita, Miami, Hermosa Beach, basically places close to the water. I worked with a multi-Grammy winning including: Iker Gastaminza, Jake Tanner. The album was recorded in Little Chicago Studios in Ottowa Canada with recording engineer Timothy Greencorn. I've got a full band now, playing shows in both rock to unplugged formats, and also reached out to the Latin community with some Latin songs.
