I know it is a little belated, but I still wanted to wish you all an amazing 2015!
As usual, I have got some news for you, regarding some of my projects for this year, and also some due for the end of this January.
Let’s start with some January goodness:
As some of you know, I worked on my first book, “Gaviotas de Papel”, with the remarkable Reina Castellanos and Daissy Linares. Their contribution, which focused on the visual aspect of my written poems, has made our book transcend. I am very proud and happy to announce that Gaviotas de Papel has been chosen as one of the pieces for 3×3 Illustration Annual No. 11!!
I am so glad of this recognition, which brings the spotlight to Reina Castellano’s work as an illustrator. Greatness!
On other news, as I promised, my surprise for the end of the month is the release of my single “Lobo”, which will tak place this Sunday, February 1st!
This is a song I wrote between projects and that I wanted to materialize to keep things interesting. I also want to mention that I had the opportunity of recording part of this single at the Melrose Center. With the help of Audio instructor Edson Alvarez, I was able to lay down some guitars and vocals.
The song was mixed and mastered by my good friends at The Spot Studio, who did a great job as always.
Now to the projects for this year…
Well, I have been seriously thinking about making a video blog, so that I may communicate more intimately with my audience. Not only that, but I would like this idea to provide me with a platform to share, not only my projects, but also some of the things that inspire me and affect me.
I want to create a way for me to share with you some books, ideas, concerns, music, movies, well, you get the idea. This way we can get to know each other on a more human level and blur the stage line between us.
Project “Vuelo al Sur”
I dedicated a good part of 2014 to my “Vuelo al sur” acoustic tour. Needless to say, the experiences and adventures that resulted from my daring pursuit, have inspired me on a level that replenished my creative reservoir, and has granted me the strength to “reinvent” the way I go about materializing new content for you all.
Thus, the “Vuelo al Sur” project was conceived.
I want to make at least one digital single release per month… that’s right ONE SINGLE A MONTH, if not two, granted my laborious nature. My purpose with this is to give emphasis to each song, while constantly releasing content for you guys. Moreover, all of these singles are part of a comprehensive work, which will hold the title of “Vuelo al Sur”. This will lead to a big release show, not only of the Vuelo al Sur album, but also my second book release and a revamped version of the “Àrbol de Luz” record.
I know this is a lot of info, but I promise plenty more details are to come. I am even thinking of a Kickstarter Campaign for a vinyl release for these records!
Well, I am giving away way too much here, so, no more news! =D
Anyways, as usual, thank you for all of your support and thank you for listening!
