ABOUT

Music captivated me at a young age, making me hunger for new music until I felt the need for creating my own even when I didn't play any instrument. I then started to play the guitar when I was 16 y/o, learning through the Beatles songs, always curious for other instruments, finding myself exploring the sounds of whatever sound sources I had near.

I enjoy melodies, chord progressions, production, and mixing. Lyrics are also important when I make my music, although I don't pay too much attention when I listen to a song.

Influences

I've lived in different places in Mexico and the U.S., having me listen to a good variety of genres, being influenced by them.

CCR and the Doors with their powerful sound and on-point lyrics.
The flamboyant style of Queen.
The spacious atmosphere of Pink Floyd.
The synths from the '80s.
Britpop from the '90s.
