  • Dance The Night Away recorded in San Antonio 2019 mp3 performing arts, literary ,pop, latin, spanish This is a song my friend Gerald and i made, its about a summer romance, just wanted to show some versatilities and pay homage to my Mexican American heritage. i believe its important for the LGBTQ community to have accessibility to songs about love romance and relationships from someone like us so we can truly relate and be inspired by the music we listen to.

  • Love Like That recorded in LA 2018 mp3 performance art, literary, pop, dance , edm This song i wrote in and recorded in LA, i wanted to create a song about a boy who goes out clubbing and meets the most amazing person, they spend the night together but when he wakes up the man he met is gone, the story is then about trying to find this man again and recreate the amazing night they had. This song is important because as i keep stressing lgbtq people dont have very many voices in music to relate to artist on that type of level.
