So, I knew playing an official SXSW show would bring good things, but I’ll admit I was shocked when my favorite radio show, Alt Latino, picked up my newest single, “Miles de Millas (2000 miles)” and featured me as one of eight “New Latin Artists Playing at SXSW” on National Public Radio! Listen to theRead more..
Lately I’ve been a tad obsessed with decorating my condo. It may be a case of avoiding the admin work of a musician (updating profiles, creating events, sending out newsletters, making media contacts, building the email list, yadda yadda), but I also think it’s important to have an inspiring space in which to work, especiallyRead more..
It’s funny how something as simple as an email newsletter can be such a burden and seem like a waste of time… and then one day it just starts working for you! That’s what happened to me after I came back from El Salvador, or rather, while I was in El Salvador. When I leftRead more..

But although IRead more..

That said, it’s also a lot tougher since I’m doing it all myself and I still have a long way to go. My first site was beautifully designed byRead more..
So you’re in an elevator. How do you describe yourself in a accurate, concise and intriguing way? It’s a tough question and I really struggled with it the first go-round. I’m still struggling, but I think I’ve at least landed on a response that people understand and are at least slightly intrigued by. Let’s seeRead more..
I’ve decided to join Wave 3 of the Music Success in Nine Weeks blog challenge. I learned a ton from the first go-round and there are still so many things I missed that I’ve joined for another go. It’ll be interesting to go back through the book and see how far I’ve come. Plus, I’veRead more..
First off, the weather in Austin, Texas, is absolutely gorgeous! The day began with a teeny cup of Einstein’s, piling two fabulous photographers (my Aunt Nettie and my dad), and my bike in my car, along with changes of clothes and photography equipment. The Chavez paparazzi and I hit the streets for a much-needed photoRead more..
