Pop/Latin Alternative singer-songwriter, Raymundo has been chosen to be an official showcasing artist at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, TX.
Raymundo's official SXSW showcase will take place Tuesday, March 15th at Sledge Hammer venue in 503 E. 6th St. Austin, TX from 8:00 to 8:40 pm. "I feel honored SXSW is giving me this opportunity to share my music with their audience and excited to feed off of the creative energy in Austin, TX!" Raymundo shares.
Raymundo continues to prove that he may be unsigned, but he and his fans are unstoppable. The fans approached multi-Grammy winner, Juanes via- social media by sharing Raymundo's music video for "Soñar.Creer.Realizar." a song about following your dreams and not giving up. Juanes instantly became a fan and invited Raymundo to open for him in Costa Mesa, CA.
The Pop/Latin Alternative singer-songwriter promises to deliver the best performance to this date with just him, his guitar and an empowering message. The audience will enter his darkest moments, all in hopes to use as a catalyst to inspire others. Through his emotive lyrics, he will share his personal struggles with depression, heartbreak and finding the courage to love himself.
One of his motives to writing his music has been overcoming being called too "fat" and "ugly" to be in the music industry. "Odio que me digan quién soy cuando yo ni sé qué quiero ser. Ayúdame a escaparme de este laberinto. Se encuentra la ansiedad los nervios y también el temor nunca entender mi existencia," are lyrics to "Laberinto," a song about the Labyrinth that kept him from finding this world.
This small town singer-songwriter may be called the "underdog" but is continuing to prove that his passion, dedication and voice is hard to turn down. He started the year by opening the Calibash Pre-Festival, which kicked-off the night to the biggest and most successful Latin festival in Los Angeles. Calibash, included performances by J Balvin, Justin Bieber, Nicky Jam, Prince Royce, Snoop Dogg and more.
Born in Los Angeles, Raymundo was raised by two hard working Mexican parents. Raymundo has passionately pursued his dream of inspiring others through his music since the age of 9. For 12 years he was in a mariachi and experienced several career highlights. He was crowned "La Estrella del Reventón 2010" on Univision. It was there that he opened for Enrique Iglesias, Nelly Furtado and many more at the world famous STAPLES Center.
