Hello! I am a spanish singer-songwriter. I have played the guitar all my life, mainly in a pop band called "Melocos". For several years I have been working as a solo songwriter. I use to write pop and folk song. My style is simple but always looking for the best words to find the message. We can work writing lyrics in spanish, melodies or both...
I am in love with songs. I like to write in a simple way, avoiding using topics and making each song unique.
I was a member of the spanish pop band "Melocos", in which I wrote many of their songs. Now I write for myself and for other authors.
If you need pop or folk melodies, or need me to write lyrics or adaptations to Spanish, please contact me. I will be happy to work with you.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
