"Best Latin Alternative Band Orange County 2014 - Signa"

Signa, a Costa Mesa foursome, resurrect the genre with every riff-rocking song. Lead singer Beto Gudiño's soaring vocals are among the best in the county in any language. The group took a giant step forward by releasing Temporales and scored a coup by landing the production assistance of César "Vampiro" López. All rockeros know Vampiro, guitar god for Maná and Jaguares. As a producer, he honed in on Signa's strengths. - OC Weekly

"una de las mejores agrupaciones de la música latina alternativa en Estados Unidos"

De la producción de “Vampiro” López y Chuy Michel y del talento nato de sus integrantes, surge el EP Temporales, un compilado de cuatro enérgicos temas donde destacan la potencia de guitarras y batería. - Irlanda Tostado Jimenez-La Banda Elastica

"Signa – Temporales"

they completely thrashed the stage with an electrifying stage presence and a riveting guitar attack and pulsating and energetic beats that completely blew me away. This band was an Orange County based band called Signa. - Angel Aguilar-Musica

"Signa Elevates Latin Alt-Rock Sounds With Help From Vampiro!"

Signa, a Costa Mesa-based rock en español band, is back with an impressive new recording. Produced by none other than César "Vampiro" López--the guitar virtuoso of Jaguares and Maná fame--Temporales is a clean toned, highly polished four-track EP that elevates the musicians to a higher plane. Always spiritually minded, Signa held firm to their commitment to follow up their debut Cuando se ponga el sol with a heavier rocanrol sound. Vampiro plays guitars on "Cielos Abiertos" (available for free download) while Humberto "Beto" Gudiño's vocals, among the most underrated in OC in any language, shine on the title track that ponders the temporal nature of earthly existence. The rhythm section is locked tight in the grooves while the guitar work is exemplary--all of what is to be expected given Signa's talent and Vampiro's guidance. - Gabriel San Roman- OC Weekly

Awarded "Best Latin Alternative" band of 2014 by OC Weekly's Magazine

Hailing from Orange County, CA., Signa is a pioneer Latin Alternative band that grew from the
roots of the Spanish rock scene in México. Signa is formed by Beto Gudiño (vocal/guitar), a
native from Guadalajara, Jalisco, whose dream is to share his unique rock sound to the world.
Beto later added the last key players that would make this dream possible - Abel Muñoz (rhythm
guitar), David Barrera (bass), and Paul Droste (drums). 

To date, Signa is joined by Unirock - a movement that has revived the Spanish rock scene
throughout California and through mutual support, Signa has become one of L.A’s and O.C’s top
pick for Latin entertainment. Signa is also winner of the Los Angeles Artist in Music Awards in
2012 and was nominated again in 2013 as well as other multiple nominations from the Orange
County Music Awards. Signa is now working towards finishing their album as they continue to
build momentum to see their dreams come true. !
