about

When most people hear me sing they think I am a woman. I am a counter-tenor, with a 4 octave vocal range. My voice has often been compared to Karen Carpenter, Sinéad O'Connor, and Jeff Buckley. I have been singing all my life and write on acoustic guitar.

My new album, the retro-electro pop perfect, 'sunshine' is uplifting, and melodic. Recorded with DFA Records engineer, Abe Seiferth, we have woven together influences of 1960s pop and modern electronic music, like Erasure, and The Pet Shop Boys. The glitchy electro-country song, 'go', and the cover of Bread's 1971 hit, 'if', are sadder moments, but the happy synth title track, 'he loves me', and 'feel good' hold the spirit of the album as they celebrate the more fun, and happier times of life. I wrote most of these songs in my mother's home country, Costa Rica, which adds a slight tropical feel to the music, like in 'blue island', and 'pura vida'.

Before the albums release, select songs were tested as singles and played on a few indie radio stations around the world. The tracks caught the ears of club DJs in Europe, and America, and many songs were remixed for the dance floor. I have included two club mixes on the album. The Tim Letteer remix of 'in a song' climbed the Billboard Dance Chart for 15 weeks.

Track Name: sunshine
you’re the light that gets my lazy ass out of bed
you shake the grogginess from my head
when you shine upon me you remind me that nothing could be so bad

(chorus)
sunshine you light up the sky
sunshine you inspire me everyday
sunshine never a lie
sunshine you’re a blessing way up high high high
sunshine sunshine sunshine

i’m walkin’ down this lovely street
I see your beautiful flowers near my feat
when i’m feelin’ gloomy you remind me of everything that i have

(chorus)
Track Name: blue island
baby, you talk about the things i do
puttin’ me down & i’m always puttin’ up with
you only talk about the things that i do wrong
keep it up baby &
pretty soon my love will be gone

(chorus)
you have to treat me right & show you love me
i never wanted to feel so worthless
please show you love me
you’ve got to show that you love me, baby

baby, i’ve got this foolish heart
hope you’re feelin’ me
cause i’m so sick of falling apart
can’t you see that this kind of lovin’ is wrong
you gotta show me
show me or my love will be gone

(chorus)

(bridge)
i want to initiate the easiest of heelin’
i want to talk deep &
i wanna know all about your feelings

baby, you talk about the things i do
puttin’ me down & i’m always puttin’ up with you

(chorus)
Track Name: in a song
you’ve avoided conversation ever since we met
in your eyes i see hunger not for me but, just for sex
and, if you could just talk to me
i know your voice would make me hot
i’d let you, baby, get close to me
& you could see just what I got

chorus:
your tongue is for more than just kissin’
learn every word & use it to speak to me
your hands are for more than just touchin’ my body, baby
your heart is for more than just lovin’ me
feel the beats & use them in a song
if I knew you better I could love you better

if you could hang with me & listen to some music
in your soul i see rhythm but only used for sex
if you could just dance with me
you’d see me sweat, & get real hot
I’d let you, baby, grind your body on me
& you could feel just what i got

(chorus)

bridge:
hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

(chorus)
Track Name: if
If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away
Track Name: go
i wanna say please please don’t go
i want to stand in your way
i want to be all of you dream of
i’ll be so sad sad sad when you go away

(chorus)
you’ve got 2 go
live your life
if you stay here your dreams will die
you’ve got 2 go
experience the world
the more you see
the more you will be
you’ve got 2 go

i’ll be thinkin’ of a plan to keep you here
locked in my arms you couldn’t get away
please don’t go I’ll be so lonely
learning to live life without you everyday

(chorus)
Track Name: rainy day interlude
i’m waiting through days of gray
just to get to a sunny day
i’m waiting
oh yes, i’m waiting for a sunny day
Track Name: he loves me (gay wedding song)
if one plus one is two
thank you for making me feel like a three

thank you for treating me
the good way you do
so much joy giving my love to you

the love in your eyes it's so easy to see
with you in my life you make me feel so free

[chorus]:
he loves me he loves me he loves me
he loves me he loves me
ooooh yeah yeah yeah
yeah he’s a good man and he’s my man

you’re so supportive of me
thank you for believing in my dreams

thank you for lifting me up
as high as you do
so much trust giving my heart to you

no lock on your heart so i don’t need no key
with you it’s so easy it’s just love love love love love…

[chorus]

i love to watch him walk
i love to hear him talk
and when he touches me
i feel electricity
he’s a good lookin’ man
and he’s everything to me

[chorus]
Track Name: feel good
Today is a beautiful day
the sun is out and brightly shining in a certain kind of way
Yes, I too have a smile on my face, but when you're falling in love isn't everyday a beautiful day?

CHORUS:
[I feel good
I feel free yeah
the whole world is love
and I am happy]

I've been over and over with you in my mind.
It fills me up to see you so happy all the time.
You pick me up when I am down and I love to be shown off all over town.
I know you and you know me
and you freed me
and you freed me and...

[chorus]

Love and sun the same in one
Love and sun you are the one for me
Love and sun the same in one
Love and sun. Love and sun.
Love and sun the same in one
Love and sun you are the one for me
Love and sun the same in one
Love and sun. Love and sun.

[chorus] 2xs
Track Name: pura vida (guanacaste radio mix)
pura vida
Track Name: all the stars (feat. djs from mars)
chorus:
all the stars are out tonight
now the planets get in line

it's not the way you kiss me
it's not the way you love
electricity, baby
you should feel the energy of
cause I feel like I know you
like we've met somewhere before
it's a cosmic connection
but I can't be the only one
no, I can't be the only one
i can't be the only one

(chorus 2x's)

it's not astrology
it's not e.s.p., yeah
it's an invisible force, baby
drawing you right to me
it's not the way you look,
but in the deep way you look at me
all in the way your hands move when they touch my body
all over my body
touch my body

you've got to recognize me
from some other place
from some other time
you've got to feel it in your soul
that we were meant to be together
you've got to feel it in your soul
you've got to feel it in your soul
you've got to feel it in your soul

(chorus 2x's)
