A little update on the album: almost done recording it all. Sounds very organic. The "realest" most personal album I've done as of yet. It's a mesh of everything that influences me musically ranging from 80's music to what's hot today. It's eclectic, refreshing, yet consistent. Main theme: Love. Produced over 80% of it and wrote and recorded 100% of it. No parental discretion advised; it's child friendly. =) After ensuing on what would be 2 1/2 year "journey" towards the creation of this album, I can finally say that it's getting closer to being finalized. The best part is that it will be FREE for you and everyone to download come May... And did I mention, it's FAT FREE!! As at a matter of fact, due to highly contaigous rhythms and beats, it'll make you lose weight; you won't help but want to dance! =D It's seductive, enchanting, and vibrant! Can't wait to take you guys on a musical journey into the Sesliu Galaxy!! ^_^
As soon as I got home today, I went to record to one of the Swedish House Mafia artist's song titled "Reload." It's produced by Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash... I completely re-did it with my lyrics and my vocals and gave it nice a creative punch... What do you think: Think we'd make a hit?! =P I hope they get to listen to it!! Without further adieu, I present you "Reload" FT. ULISES. Check it out above!! =D

Just received an email regarding a prominent song submission contest I submitted to back in January and was delighted to read that I received an honorable mention... According to the email I received, and I quote, "The 'Honorable Mention' placement shows that your song received extremely high scores and was found to be competitive with the winning songs. Only the top writers receive this placement. " Completely made my day! Thank you Universe!! ^_^ Here's the link: http://songwritingcontest.songoftheyear.com/ulises.htm
I've come to a point in my life where I can continue to appreciate and respect Timbaland for all of the work he's done without me longing to work with him artistically. What he brought to the table during HIS time was necessary for the industry and has profoundly affected it in many positive ways. Although he's a very talented producer, what my generation of talent brings to the table is just as great if not greater. I try not to to limit myself, and tend to not want to follow the crowd; by me wanting to work with him, I'd be doing exactly the opposite. I want to pave the way, do something new and refreshing, just like he did at a certain point in his life. It's like a teenager flying away from it's parent's nest to create his own. I've learned a lot from him as a musical fan, but I have my eyes set on something much grander which I plan on achieving. I believe in myself so much that I feel that through hard work and dedication, I can accomplish what he has or more. There's a sort of excitement that comes with exploring the unknown, and I know that just like me, there must be other talented individuals who have something just as interesting, refreshing, and creative to offer the world; others who are currently in the same position he once was before reaching stardom. There's a new generation of stars in the industry that are coming up; we have something completely different to offer and are gonna reinvent everything! In short, thank you Timbaland for all that you've done. Your work is truly appreciated! Your influence will definitely be felt and heard by many.
The next song I plan to release from my up & coming album THE DISCOVERY OF THE SESLIU GALAXY was entirely produced and written by yours truly. A combination of Latin flavors mixed with Hip Hop sounds will undoubtfully make your body"bump" to the pulsating beat. Should hopefully be out in a couple of weeks!! =) Title: Don't U Wanna?
That moment when you understand and make the decision that you will someday be up on a stage like that (above) in a venue just as big (if not bigger) performing to thousands of fans in a sold out concert who will not only be singing the lyrics to the songs you wrote, but enjoying the out-of-this-world performance my team and I have managed to orchestrate together. Last night at the Ricardo Arjona concert from our suite, I was reassured that I was biologically engineered for this....
While practicing a script last night, I had a realization... we are all, some more than others, unawarely participating in a monologue called life; at times, a dialogue. One is reading lines of a "scripted" act that we know not that it's scripted, thus giving our most genuine performance. The director, overseeing the ins and outs of every act, is always in control, and although we have the gift and privilege of making choices through free-will that could determine the outcome of certain "realities" while here, the play-out is ultimately all in the hands of the director. Every minute detail is so well arranged in this microcosm of a macro that when played out, one stands in awe at its magical execution. Life is not a rehearsal; the camera is always rolling and we're all actors on this stage called Earth. And this monologue I've chosen... I'm determined to give a performance that will echo in the realms of space; something, unforgettable.
"Give Me" was recorded back in 2008 for the Musically Promiscuous album. I compiled a video using Kazaky visuals (no copyright infringement intended.) You betta werk honey! Check it the exteme hot sauce above!!
Remixed Dope By Accident's "Tryna Wife" track produced by the one and only Wizz Dumb. The track features Timbaland vocals... has an old school Timbaland and Missy feel. Check the remix I did above. ^_^
I have a total of about 25 songs for my album... gonna wind it down to what I consider the best 10 songs for the project. Next song I plan on releasing is one of my most personal songs to date -"Home
." I wrote it about my experience in NYC and desires to come back home to Texas. Everyone who's heard it so far loves it! =) Overall, this is gonna be the most personal, organic album I've done to date. Can't wait till y'all hear it!!! Hoping to have it ready by Summer 2013!! *crosses fingers & presses play* d(^_^)b
Be sure to focus on the positive on this great day! =) Meditate on world peace, a better world, and a better future for humanity. I know I will! =) You should too! Have a splendid day and spread the good vibes like jam and jelly on a toast of bread. ^_^
First NEW single off of my Fifth studio album- "The Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy." I hope this song not only makes you wanna dance, but also makes you feel good inside. Feel free to follow the on-screen lyrics!! Without further adieu, I present you guys Together 4ever.

Side note: Sponsors are always welcome... If anyone would like to help make this project come to life, contact me; let's make it happen. =)
Wanted to quickly give you guys a quick update: I am currently working on my new album "The Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy" and am excited to say that it's coming along amazing- absolutely nothing like it out in the market. I'm hoping to release my first official single from this album real soon... all I can say is prepare to be blown away... new music, new videos, new things coming your way. It'll be worth the wait- I promise!! So sit tight, 'cause you'll soon get to see what I've been working on! I can't wait to share the good music! Have a blessed day!
Shot on my last day in NYC (08-31-12), this dance filled video is sure to set those feet on fire. Drawing dancing inspirations from people like Michael Jackson, this video takes u on a little NYC journey from the subways to the <3 of NYC- Times Square. Without further adieu, I present... the official music video for "Even if the World Caves In."What u waiting for! Join the fun! =P
Fresh out the oven and I HAVE to share!! This recording was done on my phone; hope to have it recorded on a track real soon! I hope you love it as much as I do! So wait no more- press play! This is just the DEMO and I'll probably end up building around it. Giving ya an inside look as to how my songs come to life... Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy coming soon!! =D
The best way I could say thanks to you for your continuous support is by making my latest album "KA" available for you and anyone to download for FREE! Share it with ALL your friends! Let's try to get it to the ears of A&Rs, Executives and anyone who likes good, creative, quality music that actually has something positive to say. Thanks in advance to all those that purchased the album off of iTunes! Truly appreciate all of your love and support! Let me know what ya think of the album; what is your favorite song off of it? Hope you enjoy!
Throughout the summer, I had the privilege of auditioning for three different shows: The Voice, La Academia, and American Idol. I did pass to the next round of the American Idol auditions but haven't posted anything due to not wanting to be disqualified. Since I'm moving to Texas and won't be able to transfer the next round of auditions to a location closer to Dallas, it's pretty much a wrap for me on that show. Nonetheless, expect to see me in a total of three shows. Be on the lookout for that zebra head band. I think what I got out of these experiences was reassurance- I believe in myself more so now than ever. Can't wait to hit the stage again once I'm in Dallas. ;-) New music doesn't sound like a bad idea either. =P
I recently decided to cover two songs... one in Portuguese and one in Spanish. The one above is called "Ai Se Eu Te Pego" by Michel Telo. The second one is a cover of one of Selena's songs titled "Tu... Solo Tu." Hope you enjoy them. =)
This weekend I got flown out to Mexico City to take part in the FINAL auditions for the Mexican talent show titled "La Academia (TV AZTECA)." After a productive finale, I'm glad to say that I was able to make it to the top 200 out of 300,000 people who auditioned. Met a lot of great talent and was an overall, amazing learning experience. Be sure to stay tuned. More news coming up soon. =)
26 compete revolutions around the sun; 9,490 days, 227,760+ hours, 13,665,600+ minutes, 819,936,000+ seconds of being alive on this magical planet. Wow! Thank you guys for all these birthday wishes and for making my day so great so far! Remember, every second counts; do something great! I love y'all. =)
Ready to hear Latin phrases in an upbeat, dancy track that effortlessly fuses Operatic elements into a Pop driven track inspired by native tribes and the mystical nights on Earth? Last night while writing a blog entry, I began to listen to my song "Barefoot" which I have had for a while now. Unfortunately, it's not 100% mixed and mastered as I wish it was, but the version that I do have is very descent. I pondered, "What good is it doing just sitting here on my iTunes playlist?" So, I want to share it with you guys so you can see what direction I'm headed with regards to the album I'm working on. I may change a few things within it later on, but as of right now, I'm content with it. Of course, there are many other tracks that I haven't posted, but since this is one of the first one's I did for this project, I thought I'd share! =) Without further adieu, here is "Barefoot." It's creatively different from what I last did. Hope you like it. =P
I recently compiled a video for my song "Love U Down" featured in my "Ka" album. The inspiration behind it is the gay Spanish drama Fer & David (Fisica o Quimica.) Hope you like it! Str8 version coming soon. =)
I was listening to some of those older songs I've recorded that were never included on one of my albums, and I came across these two which took me right back to 2009 & 2010 respectively... Hope these hold you out until my NEW album comes out later on this summer. Still working on it! Hope you enjoy them! =)
Here's a little teaser of my one of the songs I've recorded for my NEW album coming June 26th. Sink your feet into the ground and get ready to get "Barefoot!!" A single will be released in May. Stay tuned!
So I've decided to start doing a video blog once every week where I post the Top 5 songs that I'm heavily jamming to at the moment. They may include songs that are not necessarily on the radio, are not from mainstream artists, or that are oldies but goodies. Here are my Top 5 picks for this week...
1. Life Your Life- Far East Movement Feat. Justin Beiber
Religion is the masterpiece of the art of animal training, for it trains people as to how they shall think, not to say, I don't believe in God. Religion has been so divisive amoungst the human race, being the reason for many wars. It's ironic really, as they preach about love and turning the other cheek, yet do otherwise. Not to mention, the Catholic church (I was raised Catholic), and all the molestation cases. Ultimately, we are all one; the world is my country and to do good is my religion. I'm spiritual and define my self under no religion. They all have a consistent message, and that's what I apply to my day to day life. That being said, I hope you enjoy the video.
So... I was looking back at when I first seriously began pursuing music as a career in the "real world," and I found this! My first video of my two dancers and me practicing to the song I produced and was pushing back then (2007) called "Projection Beautiful." I was 19 years old- so naive and innocent, but full of drive and passion and 5 years later, I'm still here working towards my goals. Of course, I've grown soooo much since then. Thought I'd share! Hope you like it! =P
Here is Part 1 of my music/singing vlogs. This is very different from previous videos I've done 'cause you'll get to see me playing around with my voice and just doing some vocal freestyle. Plus, I talk about my up and coming album!! I think that musicians, producers, and singers would probably find this video interesting. Without further adieu, I present to you "the Warm Up!" Let me know what you think! Thanks for watching. Love you guys!! =)
"Spicy Jalapeno (Fresh)" video has received over 11,150 views on YouTube! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
