Hello music world, bien venidos, thanks for the visit.
This CD was created initially, to bring attention to the domestic violence-child abuse issues we face as a human race.
The song 'Helpless' is a plaint of all the Helpless.
The song '1894', 'Mil Ochocientos Noventa Y Cuatro' is a true story taken from an old poem (of which no one remembers who wrote it,) about the murder of my great-great grandfather that year. I rewrote the poem and created '1984'.
I correlated these violent times with those of many years back.
I sang this original composition in the traditional 'corrido' or ballad style, typical to our wild southwest.
1894 is archived in our states Hispanic Cultural Center as indigenous Spanish music and is also archived in the Smithsonian Institute.
'Your So Young And Beautiful' comes out of Jailhouse Rock, Elvis' first movie. I tried to keep the feel of his struggling to begin singing again (like at the end of the movie,after experiencing and healing from a traumatic throat injury,) at the beginning of the song, and finished with an early Elvis effect.
Just having fun.
'Crazy-Loco' was nominated for best bi-lingual song for 2002 by the New Mexico Hispanic Music Association. It did not win but nice recognition by my musical peers.
The rest of the tunes recorded for fun and pleasure.
I also play-sing the rock,blues,Spanish, with a fantastic guitar virtuoso.
Some use the songs 'Dream' & 'Sleep' as sleep aids.
We would love to hear from you. Please feel free to give some evaluation-speak at the bottom of the site at 'comments', etc. .
I created this cd solo, me and my orchestra-keyboard, with some guitar & bongoes from Rudolpho Gonzalez, CEO & cheif tech engineer at Casa Blanca Studio. Great people, musicians, exellent studio production.
I am also very active in environmentally issues. 'Every mans breath is every mans breath', Mirdad.
Let us work together to maintain a safe , clean Mother Earth.
I am also a published poet, writer of a childrens book, painter-artist.
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the tunes.
I also compose songs, write lyrics, movie themes-scores,commercials, jingles, most all genre.
