Congratulations on the release of “Boca Sexy.” We are obsessed with the ambiance of your new single! Could you please tell listeners a little bit more about who you are as an artist? I found a broken one string guitar at my grandparent's house at the age of 16. After fixing it by watching YouTube tutorials, I started watching videos to learn how to play. After two months I started having an interest in trying to make songs but I was not confident enough to take it to the next step so I just played at small bars across town. During these years, I've been learning a lot about drums, Latin music, and salsa dancing. By the time quarantine happened, I realized I really liked making my own music and invested all my time improving it. A few months later, I had a full album with rhythms that really spoke to me and decided to release it. And so, here I am.
What was it like to be both the leading role and director of the music video for “Boca Sexy?" Have you taken on this challenge in the past?
It's been a really challenging experience so far, but very rewarding. It's not easy to direct, edit, frame, focus, sing, and dance at the same time, but given these difficult times and given I'm a photographer and videographer, that was the most effective way to release on my own terms - and how I actually envisioned it. So far, it has been a great way to express my voice as an artist. Is “Boca Sexy” a representation of what we can expect from your full-length album?
Not at all. Each song it's an experiment for me. I really wanted to make happy and easy songs to dance to, so for sure there will be a lot of upbeat songs. I am definitely adding more beats to it since I am also a drummer! What is the story behind your artist name?
I am obsessed with red lipstick, in fact, I cannot go out without my lips being red. It's something very characteristic of me. On the other hand, I fell in love with California the first time I went there, so Red California is a name that inspires and speaks to me. What would you like your listeners to take away from the music that you put out?
Definitely happy vibes! I see myself playing gigs where people are dancing, smiling, and singing along with me. When I write, I try to talk about love from a positive and happy perspective. Sometimes, love songs are either about sad breakups or about the rush of being in love. I try to expand that love spectrum a bit further where I can create a song that can look at the breakup and take a positive lesson and meaning out of it - like my upcoming single "Ya no dueles", which means, "You don't hurt me anymore". I am an easygoing and happy person, so I like reflecting that in my music and I can't wait for you to hear it!
