"I have been performing on the stage since I
was 8 years old. But my most recent experience
as part of the hit musical Loving the Silent Tears has given me a new perspective about stage presence."
• During the last week of July Inner Bossa moved up to #37 on the Smooth Jazz Top 50 chart, to #19 on the Smooth Jazz Indie chart and to #84 on the Radio Wave Internet chart. The EP is also listed as ‘chart bound’ on the Groove Jazz Music chart. Thank you so much! I feel blessed to have so many DJs and Program Directors spinning my music! A special thanks to my fans who continue to request my music. Your voice is being heard!
• Our trio As Três Meninas had another 2 great shows recently; at The Sound Room (Oakland CA) and the Sebastiani Theatre (Sonoma CA). This month we will be in Goleta (Santa Barbara area) and at Casa Arjona in Long Beach CA. We are in the process of putting together a December mini-tour to Oregon and have an anchor booking at The Jazz Station in Eugene, OR on December 12th. More dates in and out of California to be announced soon. Check out our music and videos at www.astresmeninas.com.
• The first half of 2015 is over and it has been a huge success. My latest EP INNER BOSSA debuted at #37 on the Smooth Jazz Independent Top 50 Chart last month and seems to be on the move. A huge THANKS to the Program Managers/Directors for giving me this opportunity to share my music. THANK YOU also to Jason Gorov at Gorov Music Marketing for his super radio promotional support.
• The Inner Bossa EP release shows at Vibrato Grill Jazz (Bel Air, CA) and Spaghettini (Seal Beach, CA) were both a huge success. A special shout out and THANKS to Artistic Directors Pat Senatore (Vibrato) and “Q” (Spaghettini) for giving me and other independent artists the opportunity to perform at such fine venues.
