About The Album “LatinoAmeryca”
The album is all about mother Earth. We are screwing it up and I think it is everybody’s duty to do something to protect mother Earth! Yes dude! Mother Earth. I want people open their minds and realize this. Just be cool and grateful. Shit’s things happens all the time… Who knows! Change things are very difficult but not in vein. Just gives yourself a good life dude. This is all I want to say in my music through my lyrics.
How the album came to be?
The album came to be by sadness of see how we don’t care about this place where we live. Look around and see the little we care about others. We don’t have to be super friends to help each other. It doesn’t really matter the amount or the kind you give away. It is the intention the only matter dude!
The music composition started before the concrete idea about the theme of the album.
The lyrics happen to be written spontaneously or in the very moment when I record the vocals.
When I got a song the first thing I do is to make the beats and record the guitar riff for the song. Exist the chance it will be removed. How long the song will be. Which bpm would be best? Which instruments. I’m a busy man and I deal with it very carefully. So sometimes, after work I go home, switch on the mac and then the analog stuff. I open my DAW and right away I starts making a song from the beginning to the end. I have my own template. So I just need to click on it and I’m ready to record.
The mix of genres (70s guitar rock; heavy metal; punk; horn sections, spaghetti westerns, etc.)
In this album I focus very much on making hymns. 80s, 90s guitar rock with some Latin fusion.
Then putting it all together?
While I’m cooking or doing something else I’m listening the song and analyzing what would fit best to the song. Some brass section, cello maybe, no solo the guitar here. Spanish or English (My English)? What types of effects to use for the guitar, some congas why not? Everything happens spontaneously.
What are your favorite tracks from the album? Why?
My favorite track is “Stay Calm” The song is cool and very simple. Just two chords D m and C. I just like it.
Is there an over-riding concept to the album? If so, please explain so average person can understand.
Yes! There is an over-riding concept… An eight years old kid will not be able to understand what I’m talking about. Maybe I’m wrong. You never know! Maybe they understand better than me… Whatever! The songs are f*king good!
