Drummer with 70s & 80s rock and metal influences.
I started playing at the age of 11, inspired by the bands I was listening to at that age (Guns N Roses, Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Blink 182 etc). At the same age I started Orchestral Percussion studies in conservatory, which I continued for 5 years. That introduced me to classical music and gave me the change to embrace that genre, offering me the opportunity to perform classical music on stage; sing in a chorus orchestra and play in marching bands.
Because of my Cuban roots, I grew up listening to Latin music as well; artist such as Santana, Tito Puente and Celia Cruz among others.
Since the age of 14 I have been playing with different bands with different styles, going from nu metal, to flamenco rock, although hard rock/alternative rock are the genres that I played the most. I have played in over 100 performances in the last few years, both in Spain and the U.K. This has given me the chance to work with different types of equipment for each genre or performance setting. In London I have become member of two bands, recorded an album, done promotion and gone on tour in the U.K. and Spain. This has given me the chance to learn more about composition (even though I don’t consider myself as a composer).
I moved to London in search of new bands, groups and people to play with, learn more about the music, with the hopes of starting new projects and getting a foot in the international music industry.
