ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Herman Rodriguez Fraire

Bio,

I was born in San Jose de Mesillas Sombrerete Zacatecas Mexico. I started humming songs that my mother was singing while doing her home chores. This music included church songs, as well contemporary music played on the radio. From my mother side of the family there is several musicians who have a recording band and are currently working on writing songs. From my father mother’s side of the family I give credit to the Sanchez family, who has several musicians that have play music as a habit and inspired to be artist.

The Rodriguez family crossed the USA, Mexican border on June 13th 1965. I spent that summer mostly inside the family home and entered Van Nuys Junior High in the fall of that year. I befriended the Alonzo family whom had two adolescent boys that were practicing music and had a cousin who was playing the guitar. I started to practice with the three family members and soon we developed a garage band. The focus of the band was in playing mostly contemporary ballads played by groups like Los Fredis, Apson, and Rancheras.

I was always thinking about making La Banda de musica and acquired two more musicians from Van Nuys High School that played trombone and alto saxophone. We continue to look ahead and started playing in weddings and local ballrooms, soon three other musicians were added to the band and the band started to focus more on plsying English songs and eventually lost its cohesiveness. I later enrolled in voice classes at Valley College and continued singing during family gatherings especially during Christmas holidays.

I met my wife Basilia during an outing at a ballroom were she was dancing and I asked her to dance with me. The rest is history. Soon we got married and had three boys making it difficult to persue my music career, I focused on working and getting an education. I never gave up on my dream to be a singer, I continued to practice solo at my parents garage and later at my home where I eventually wrote songs. I earned a Doctorate degree in Psychology. I have a private practice and teach part time at C.S.U.N. I never gave up on my dream to sing songs; I currently completed my first Album/CD titled “Es Amor”.

I would like to focus this next stage of my life in writing and recording music, I feel very comfortable singing to audiences of all ages. I have been a guest on the following talk shows, three times in the Christina show, several times in the show Los Angeles Al Dia, a television commercial for a local hospital, and have been a guest on local radio talk shows. I have appeared in local newspapers The Los Angeles Times, The Daily News, and La Opinion. I feel music is a very special part of my life and I’d like to share it with you and the world.

Sincerely,

Herman

Breve Hisotria personal,

Yo naci en San Jose de Mesillas Sombrerete Zacatecas Mexico. Comense a entonar cansiones que mi madre cantaba durante sus quiaseres de casa. La musica incluia cantos de la iglesia y cansiones contemporanias que escuchava en la radio. En la familia de mi mama tenemos musicos que presentemente se encuentran tocando musica nortena y an gravado un album. De la familia de mi papa tenemos varios musicos, la familia Sanchez que an inspirado de ser artistas y que tocan varios instrumentos.

Mi familia cruso la frontera de Mexico y Estados Unidos Junio 13th 1965. Durante el verano de el mismo ano, pase mucho tiempo dentro de la casa hasta que me hise amigo de la familia Alonzo que tenia dos hermanos que se encontraban practicando musica junto con su primo que tocaba guitarra. Comense a practicar con ellos, y de hai nacio un grupo de musica. Comensamos a tocar musica contemporania, baladas como la musica de Los Fredis, Apson, Santana y alguanas Rancheras.

Mi enfoque con la musica era de tener un grupo solido y grabar cansiones, invitamos a dos musicos de la escuela que tocaban trombone y saxophone alto, fue muy rapido nuestro aprendisage de cansiones en espanol y ingles, comensamos a tocar en bodas, bailes y de dias festivos como el Cinco de Mayo para el colegio y otros lugares que selevraban dias festivos Mexicanos. El groupo elijio que se inclullera tres musicos mas y comenso a perder su enfoque de tocar musica Mexicana. Yo comense a tomar clases de vos en el Colegio y segui practicando cantaba durante eventos de familia y deves encuando en teatro de cine durante el intermedio.

Conoci a mi senora Basilia en un baile y el resto es historia, nos casamos y tenemos tres hijos, mi enfoque cambio un poco, y me dedique a atender a la escualea de noche y trabajar por el dia, pero nunca deje de pensar en mi musica y pase mucho tiempo practicando solo en la casa de mis padres y despues en mi casa donde he compuesto cansiones. Mi educasion, me llebo a completar mi doctorado en psicologia, tengo practica privada y tambien soy parte tiempo maestro en la Universidad de Northridge (C.S.U.N.) donde enseno consegeria de la infancia Chicano/a y otras menorias. Yo nunca perdi la esperanza de cantar, termine de grabar mi primer album que se llama “Es Amor”.

En la siguiente etapa de mi vida, quiero enfocarme en escribir y grabar cansiones, yo me siento my bien cantando enferente de odiensas de todas edades. He sido invitado a varios shows incluyendo, tres veces al show de Christina, varias beses al show Los Angeles al dia, tambien hise un commercial para una hospital local y he partisipado en shows de la radio. He sido intrevistado por los siguientes periodicos, inclullendo Los Angeles Times, Daily News y tambien en La Opinion, todas las intrevistas fueron relasionadas a proveer servisios y educasion de salud mental a la comunidad. Mi educasion es muy emportante para mi, pero yo llevo la musica en mi Corazon y me gustaria tener la oporunidad de compartirla con ustedes y el mundo.

Con carino y respeto,

Herman

Beautiful Latin Contemporary CD
"Hablame" by Herman Rodriguez is a collection of beautifully romantic Latin love songs. Being from Mexico, Herman's music has a touch of tradition, including some Mariachi. For the most part the album is very contemporary with a strong vocal performance and nice arrangements blending a number of styles. Highlights are"Tu Fuiste La Causa," a traditional Mariachi number with delicate but fun strings and punchy horns. "Cuando Te Conosi" introduces an electric guitar and nice vibrato in the vocals. "Crei" features some great spanish guitar and a has a "walking on air" feel to it. If you like latin love songs and Mariachi music, you will like this one.
