ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Since 2002, two men have been turning heads and catching ears all over the country with their energetic anthems and soulful ballads. But even after capturing the heart of a city as musically diverse as Nashville, TN, Alex Florez and Erik Huffman are showing no signs of slowing down.

Enter FLOREZ. a seamless merge of two distinct voices and personalities over a backdrop of driving guitar. The combination produces a fresh, saucy vibe, laced with enough charm to excuse a comparison of women to rabid puppies. Erik lays groundwork with a smooth bass heartbeat and solid background vocals, while Alex stirs the audience with spirited guitar licks and singing in English, French, and Spanish. FLOREZ combines solid musicianship with vocal charisma, giving voice to the kind of groovy, pop-rock you’d expect from these handsome boys next door.

Drawing influence from the power and emotion of Maroon 5, the quirky energy of Jason Mraz, and the raw simplicity of Gavin DeGraw (whom they opened for in 2005), FLOREZ has found their niche in the form of tangy, groove-driven rock. Lyrically, FLOREZ runs like an inner monologue: reflective and unapologetically candid. Their songwriting transforms snapshots of life into catchy melodies which leaves audiences humming along before they ever set foot outside a venue.

Alex and Erik met in 1999 as students at South Carolina’s Furman University. Since that time, the band has produced three full-length albums and two EP’s. They have consistently performed engaging and heartfelt performances and earned a myriad of fiercely loyal fans at venues all along the East coast.

In August 2007, Erik took a brief hiatus from the band to compete on the CBS series “Survivor: China”. After spending 33 days in the wilderness of Southeast China and finishing only three tribal councils short of a million dollars, Erik returned home to Nashville with celebrity status and – thanks to his red FLOREZ baseball cap – a brand new set of fans in tow.

In July FLOREZ released their latest EP, Not Alone, a follow-up to the more acoustic Yellow Shoes EP released in December 2007. However, FLOREZ is on the road and “Coming To You” this Fall before heading back to the studio to begin work on full-length album.

Great, honest, cross-genre album
I got this cd over a year ago at a Florez concert at my school, UNCG. Didn't pay it a lot of mind, but enjoyed it when it came on iTunes via shuffle. The past 6 months I've been listening to it non-stop. All the songs have great catchy hooks. On the surface it just seems like a pool side album to enjoy during the summer at parties and it does work in that atmosphere, very well. Sitting down and absorbing the album reveals many different layers of honesty and openness that is really lacking in any popular music today. It is a mostly upbeat album with a lot of Spanish influence. The musicianship here would be great for any seasoned band, but to be as young as they are this aspect really stands out. In summation, what seems to be just another pop/rock album reveals itself to be much more with repeated listens.
