I have been working on "Shattered Pieces" for most of my life, its been a 20 year project. This album is based on my life story. Songs were written about my grandfather,my mother and the ups and downs of my past life. I want to give thanks to a band that influenced me to be who i am today, a band called "Montezuma." I was fascinated by the guitar player (Rudy Villegas) and his brother keyboard/saxophone player (Armando Villegas) the way they would write original music and inspired me to be me.
