NEW ALBUM & DATES ALERT!
I’m very excited to announce that my new release with Migration “Lines in the Sand” is now available in Europe and Japan physically and digitally. Official US release date is January 25th, 2019.
This album is about the immigrant experience.
I was born and raised in Mexico City and came to the United States when I was 21 years old to fulfill my dream of playing music with the best musicians I could find and learn as much about my craft as I possible could. I always had a family that supported me and I was lucky to be able to come to this country legally to pursuit my goals and dreams.
This album is not about me or immigrants like myself.
This project is about the immigrant who has been forced to flee home out of fear, persecution, war and famine. This is about the kind of immigrant who is constantly being demonized, ostracized and politicized by a powerful few in the name of a misguided nationalism that is quickly eroding a fundamental quality in human beings: the capacity for feeling love for people that look different than we do and empathy for people that are less fortunate than we are.
This album is about them and their journey.
