"Even TV people like good music!"


If you need a soundtrack for your next journey, you’ll want to check out Villegas. Their laid back melodies and familiar lyrics tell a story of love and friendship. But don’t be fooled into thinking it’s all light fare for the masses. Their music holds a subtle sadness and a longing for something more. Though folky in nature they sway towards an eerie almost progressive styling not afraid to push the boundaries with their gritty guitar sound on songs like “At Home”.
Dave Camacho’s vocals are soothing and sad at times and the passion he exudes will make you feel he may have looked into your soul when he wrote these songs.
Villegas has managed to make a new place in my music library, something that is not easy to do.

After leaving the Berklee College of Music in 2004, and a brief stint performing as a sideman to a fellow alumnus in the NW USA, front man/founder of Villegas, Dave Camacho began his repertoire of intimate songs out of a necessity to express himself. It was in fact never his intention to perform the music as you hear it today, but the music took an initiative of it's own to attract listeners.
One of those listeners is now lead guitarist (and fellow alumnus) Matt Maltese, who's emotive, and subtly intricate melodies provoke a sonic sound scape that entrances the audience.
Due to his experience playing Americana roots music, and his innate love for the nuances of the genre, passed on from his family's own history Dave aptly recruited his sister Danielle Camacho to exploit her warm harmonies.
While Dave, Matt and Danielle form the core of Villegas the interchanging additions of their bassist and drummers is every bit as familial. It's this uncontrived musical relationship with newcomers Coso (Electic Bass), Ryan Campbell (drums) and Toby Preciado (drums/perc.) that makes Villegas stylistically dynamic. You can only "almost" put your fingers on it.
