I handled publicity for Dominican singer-songwriter Vicente Garcia in February and what a pleasure it was. He is a consummate professional. Not surprising since he’s been doing his thing since he was a tween.
Garcia was taken under Juan Luis Guerra’s wing when he was just 13-years-old and fronting his own band, “Calor Urbano.”
A self-taught musician and vocalist, Vicente released his debut album “Melodrama” in 2011. Since then, he has come to symbolize the future of Latin artists who are challenging labels and redefining musical genres.
Garcia has opened for, or performed with, major Grammy award-winning artists such as Juan Luis Guerra, Mana, Juanes, Shakira and Cultura Profetica. He has also recorded with Grammy nominated, LAMC darling, Ximena Sariñana.
Check out this acoustic performance of “Te Soñe” shot by the folks over at 123UnoDosTres, a YouTube channel focused on Latino entertainers.
