Hola and Welcome!




Music has always been my language,


passion and compañiero. It defines


where I've been and where I'm going. 


As a Mexican/Welsh American - born at a time when that wasn't even vaguely a cool thing to be - I grew up in southern California keeping my latin heritage a secret.


On my father's side, grandparents taught me literature - from Shakespeare to the Illiad and the Odyssey. On my mother's side, relatives seemed either to be drinking heavily, making magical potions and spells for sale . . . or just getting out of prison. The effort to balance and combine these two different cultures has played an important part in my life.
