February 16, 2013 - Well a new year is upon us as well as new MUSIC. Ive been working hard at this new album and its halfway complete! The new album is called "Light" and just like it sounds, the music feels lighter and fresh and colorful. The new single "Beat Goes On" was released just hours ago here on this site as well as a few others. Im really happy with that track, its such a big step forward in the right direction! Im not entirely sure how many tracks will be on the album, so far there are 10. I am hoping to get a few bonus tracks done as well but only time will tell. The release date is still unknown but it definitely will be released this year. Right now it feels like I might be done in late Spring. I really would like to make a music video but im not quite sure yet.
I will keep updating this blog, but more importantly I will keep working on the music!

March 29, 2012 - HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!! Its been a while since i've typed a blog. I hope you are doing well and I would just like to say that I have been working my ass off with this new album, SWEAT OF THE SUN. Both mentally, musically, and physically! I've lost a good 15lbs! But I look healthy! Not a stick. haha.
Anyway, the first single "Stars Come To Life" will be out in April. So until then I've released an EP called Mythology. Its out today! And its all dance and electronic! I hope you like it!!! One of the songs on the EP called "Kingdom" will be on the album as well. So check that song out too!

November 8, 2011 - Hello everyone. I'm typing this blog because I decided to release a special song today, in memory of a very special woman who passed early this morning. Manuela Leal. She is survived by her family and loved ones.
I wrote the song Lotus Flower with her in mind as well as my grandmother and all the women and men that have worked hard to survive on this beautiful, but sometimes very cruel world. Manuela's passing was unexpected and therefore I felt it was necessary to release the song rather than wait until 2012. She was a very strong woman who fought to survive. In the end God welcomed her with open arms. She is in a better place now, but deeply missed...
In Loving Memory of, Manuela Leal

September 30, 2011- Hello to all my listeners and readers and friends! I hope you are well, as for me I am really FULL!!! I ate a lot of pizza and drank a lot of sweet tea! My stomach is in pain. But here I am at 2am typing this blog :)
I have so much news to share. But I can't share it all at once! To start off, the album has an official release date!!! WOOHOO!!! The release date is October 25, 2011. You can visit the official website for the official track list: http://www.wix.com/celestialgrounds/celestial-grounds#!discs
There will be two versions of the album. The first version contains 12 songs and will be available for FREE download on Jamendo.com and Tweewoo.com The second version contains 17 songs and will be available only in physical CD format on Reverbnation.com (which is this website).
The music video for "Could This Be Love" is scheduled for release the same day as the album release. The storyline is centered around a murderer and hookers. More info about that soon!
Each track on the album is special to me and means something. As a listener it can have dual meanings and represent something different for each brain. I will talk a little about each track (not including the bonus tracks). Sci-Fi: is about breaking free of our "plastic world". Atom: is a crazy song about our origin and our history. Galaxy: is about someone not loving you back. The Palace: is about being seduced. Canyon: i'll keep this one a mystery. Stars Fall: is about two lovers that survived hell. Fly: is about learning to love yourself and conquering. Alien: is a crazy song about aliens. Extinct: is about feeling hopeless but not giving up. Could This Be Love: is about asking questions. Northern Lights: is about love at first sight. Venus: is about a girl who seems perfect but... *Bonus tracks will not be deciphered*
In other news, I am working on a holiday album. Yes, thats right. I will be releasing a collection of holiday music for FREE download in November. Two songs that will be on the album include, "Silent Night" and "Last Christmas". The album will be titled "FROST".
I hope this blog covered all the important topics and I hope to hear from anyone that has opinions or comments about my music or just anything. Have a great day or night!!!! :)
September 12, 2011 - Hello anyone and everyone! I hope you are doing okay!
It's 1:42am here in Texas and i am a little sleepy. I've been working on music a lot and FINALLY the album "Sci-Fi" is FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 12 songs and I am really happy with it!!! I do not have a release date yet (probably in October, November or December haha). I am currently working on a music video for the song "Could This Be Love". More info about that project coming soon!
Since I finished writing the album about a month ago, I started writing new material and I already have the first single for the next album! haha but I can't release it yet, obviously. I can't release the title or the name of the album (which I already have).
I want to thank everyone that has downloaded the music and read these blogs. It really means a lot to me. And I really hope you continue to read and listen and watch as time goes on. I am excited to get this album out and I am excited to release the first single off the second album! It is happy and cheerful and makes you want to love life.
That about wraps it up for this blog. Stay tuned for more info!!!
August 31, 2011 - I released "Canyon" a bit early. It was slated for a September release but I couldn't wait any longer! I dont think I will ever reveal what "Canyon" is about. I leave it up to everyone's imagination. The next single is supposed to be a music video too, but now doubts are rising. It might be another song. Not sure anymore. I'll gladly accept any suggestions from anyone. But the album will not be released until a video is made and released!
stay tuned for more!
