Who or what inspires you to create music? What is the main lyrical theme of much of your music?
I am inspired by love. I feel we need more love out there; more love in our lyrics and our music. I feel love is something that is bigger than us, and that’s what I write & sing about.
What was it like growing up in Colombia and Venezuela? What is it like living in Los Angeles? What has it been like playing within that scene?
I grew up between both countries. Some of our music has a mix of tribal sounds, so I grew up dancing to that and listening to 90’s music, which is what my new material is about. I live in Los Angeles, and it is a crazy fun city to live in. Being in LA is been great exposure for me. I performed at the biggest street party in the world last October during halloween, and I got to share my new music with thousands of people.
What was it like recording your upcoming single “Fire of Love’?
When I wrote “Fire of Love,” my goal was to give people that good energy & strength they need – to inspire them to go for their dreams. There is so many people in the world who are not following their passion and have fear to chase their dreams. I want this to be the track that the world listens when they need encouragement, love, & joy in their hearts.
What is your favorite social networking platform? Why?
I love Instagram. I love the fact that you can share your experiences with the world through photos.
