Other Relevant Info: UPCOMING: My new single “Mi Debilidad” will be out at the end of the summer! ANECDOTE: I had started to develop my new project/album, a tribute to my father’s music from the 60’s, Aníbal De Peña, but something still hadn’t clicked. I wanted to find a direction that kept the classic sound yet sounded fresh. At the time I was doing a residency at the Hotel Cafe, and invited musicians I admired to play with me here and there. Cuñao was one of them. After that show, we started working and playing more and more. Until one day they accompanied a few of these new/old songs. It was just perfect. The combination of my restructuring of the songs with their brilliant arrangement ideas just worked. It felt magical. We’ve just recorded a whole album! The first single will be out very soon.
