(Los Angeles, CA.- February 7, 2011) Less than a year after releasing his debut album "Capullo", the Mexican singer-songwriter returns to the stage with a new band and a new sound full of energy, ready to start his trek towards this year's edition of SXSW (South by Southwest), one of the US' premier music festivals. SXSW music takes place March 16-20 in Austin, TX.
Orlando, a native of Tijuana, announced that Los Angeles will be the starting point for this journey, where he will be taking the stage with full band for the legendary MUCHO Wednesdays night at Downtown's LA CITA on February 9. The same stage where he awed audiences with a solo acoustic set at last summer's Visionary Sounds festival.
He has been touted as having "one of the best vocal instruments in today's pop" by renowned Latin alternative blog Cub Fonograma and has shared stages with the likes of Nortec Collective, Ely Guerra and Natalia Lafourcade; he has made a name for himself not just because of his gifted voice but also for developing a unique style in his recordings as much as in his live shows.
"Tu Fortuna" is the latest single off of 'Capullo', a song that takes you on a mystical ride with musings about finding your way set against an almost futuristic, thumping rhythm. This experimental pop track is a fan favorite and has been steadily hitting the airwaves around the country. Orlando's live show captures these qualities on his recordings and takes them to the next level.
After a year of intense promotional work, Orlando is ready to share and flourish his vision with us. More dates will be added soon for California and Baja California in the following weeks.
