Ahh! There are no words to describe Aguilera’s beauty on his Fender Strat and with an array of effects pedals—just listen. La

Loving #ProjectELECTRICO and our work as an artistic collaborative process. After four countries and some winding roads of life, we are now seeing the light. There is nothing like bringing in a host of musicians from various parts of the world to contribute and collaborate on tracks. Each fresh tone adds a vibrancy, an elegance, a unique texture, and a non, pre-programmed thought. LOVE. Love.

A few production quotes from the wise chair of Ronan Chris Murphy today:

“What would it sound like if a dragon sang opera? That’s what we want.” – Ronan

“Come and play in the style of you. Before your mind works, it’s heart.” – Ronan

“The players I like are when they are not so sure where they will land, and that creates a risk.” – José Manuel Aguilera

KB: “YES!” Risk is where the beauty and the end begin.
