Getmybuzzup: How long have you been in the music industry?
SDLT: When I was 16 years old, I put together my first band, then when I was 20 I became a Rock Star in Perú, I came to the US when I was 23 and started all over again from scratch, when I was 26 I made another band here in Los Angeles, when I was 30, I made my first solo album and the idea of the music industry was more clear, and I started to dislike everything related to that industry. LOL.
Getmybuzzup: How would you describe your sound?
SDLT: Darky, cinematic, exotic, sensual, honest, groovy.
Getmybuzzup: What is the concept behind your latest project?
SDLT: “Sliding Roads” is an analogy between music and real-life relationships. Like the sliding ups and downs of relationships, so does the slide-guitar permeate through each song. The album is an ode to the things we miss, reminisce, and either long for or learn from. It’s about the sliding roads and paths we come across when we are bound to another person, for better or for worse. Accepting those paths, and past experiences and honoring them in spite of despite the end result is what makes us better versions of ourselves.
Getmybuzzup: Do you think your music is mostly enjoyed more for the beats or for the lyrical flow and content?
SDLT: I compose songs with my guitar or piano, and then I create the melody after a few minutes improvising. After that, I dress the song with cool rhythm section and good lyrics. So, it is hard for me to know what is the most enjoyable element of my music.
Getmybuzzup: What’s your all-time favorite song?
Getmybuzzup: How do you feel about the current state of music?
SDLT: I really don’t have any emotions about that. You can talk all day about the downside of the music, but at the end of the day, it’s about the song… or you can be optimistic and think that there are a lots of more opportunities to create music.
Getmybuzzup: What separates you from other artists? (What’s makes you different?)
SDLT: Since I was a kid, I never liked to be similar to anybody, even when I was playing soccer, I’ve created my own moves. When I started in the music, I was into heavy metal, and if you want to create that type of music, you really need to play and sing without any mistakes. So I was exceptionally devoted to become a good artist with a wide vocal range. I had many different teachers, learning acting, experimental body expression that could help me to perform better on stage, plus I had many bands where I learned a lot, especially the band “Fragil” where I became a rock star when I was 20 years old. Also, I sang covers of Led Zeppelin and Queen, and of course, I sang Latin music, Reggae, Ballads and whatever music was around. All that experience created the artist that I am today. After numerous years in the US, I could create my own identity, and that makes me unique.
Getmybuzzup: When you’re not in the studio, What do you like to do for fun and relaxation?
SDLT: I spend most of my time between my job as a videographer and my family, I also like kickboxing and the beach that is just 3 blocks from my house.
Getmybuzzup: What is the biggest highlight of your career so thus far?
SDLT: I think is the fact that my music is many movies and TV series in Hollywood.
Getmybuzzup: When performing live, what are some of the things you do to get the crowd involved?
SDLT: I give my 100% to the song, and the eye contact with the audience generates the true honest connection. That’s the way I share my art with the crowd, and it creates that beautiful energy.
Getmybuzzup: When performing and the crowd is singing along, how does that energy make you feel?
SDLT: It is a sensation of freedom and pure energy.
Getmybuzzup: What can we expect from you in the future?
SDLT: It’s been a while that I don’t have any expectations, I believe in hard work and quality.
Getmybuzzup: Anything else you want to add?
SDLT: Yes, thank you so much for the interview! All the best guys!
Getmybuzzup: Where can the fans check out for your music?
SDLT: Check my website. There you can go to any of the sources, YouTube, Facebook, etc.
