LIVE IN WINE COUNTRY
About This Event
Though surrounded by a large musical family throughout his childhood, music did not become an integral part of Carlos' life until his ears were infected with the sounds of Rock 'n Roll and Brit Pop. The infection quickly spread throughout his entire being transforming a boy who once dreamed of becoming a professional tennis player into a man with a guitar, a voice and a dream.
Bit by bit, Carlos perfected his craft by learning songs popular during the times of the British Invasion and rock n' roll classics from the 60's and decades past as well as sounds of the Brit Pop era of the 90's . Soon after, he formed a band and in the blink of an eye, the group was rocking venues throughout their hometown. From that point on, the course of Carlos' life changed as he set course for a career in music.Fate brought Carlos to the sunny state of Florida where he attended college and pursued studies in Business Administration, Music Composition and Guitar Performance. Carlos rapidly built his music career in the Tampa Bay Area and performed numerous shows as a solo acoustic performer and as lead guitarist and singer in his own cover band ACQUIESCE.
A few years later Carlos set sights on looking for new opportunities in his career and moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 2009. While taking a job at a music store, he soon began performing solo acoustic shows at local venues and private events. In March of 2010 he joined forces with the local LA based band “Freefall Rescue” to further expand their sonic depth. During the second half of 2010, “Freefall Rescue” performed a few shows with Carlos on lead guitar and backing vocals and in the fall began working on new material. Freefall Rescued released its debut EP titled RISE in 2013 with Carlos on backing vocals and guitar. He has performed numerous shows with Freefall Rescue and other artists.
In his shows he performs some of his original songs as well as covers in a range of genres including classical and contemporary pop/rock expanding from the 60's to some of today's hits.
Carlos is currently working on writing his own first solo album to be released in 2016.
