Bio

Born in Venezuela. Grew up in Miami. Lived in Boston. Hung out in LA and a woman bought me a drink. I never went back. True story.

I started playing guitar when I was around 13. I was good at it and could shred & shit, but it had no musical value. I didn’t really start listening to music and trying to write songs until I was about 19 or 20. Being a late bloomer is cool, cause I’m still freaking out about bands that people were over by the time they turned 16 (I’m 31). Besides jealousy, the prospect of a new sound or a simple song coming my way is the greatest motivator. The current name of the game is Big Black Delta and I also did stuff as mellowdrone.

For Big Black Delta, I’m planning to release an EP every 3-4 months. I’m tired of spending a year and a half on LP’s. For this first EP, I’m giving a free mp3 download of a different song every couple of weeks. I’m using Topspin to do this. Down the road I’ll print up vinyl and CD’s but for now, I just want to get music out there. There will be AAC and every kind of format available once im done giving this first EP away.

My friend Caspar at Version Industries has been designing the visual media and website, as well as teaching me how to use Topspin. I could not have done this without him. While making the EP, Alessandro Cortini and I would meet almost weekly to trade each other’s music and critique. It really helps to get an objective opinion when making your own music. As all of us do, I tend to get lost in the wilderness and sometimes need a simple slap in the face.
