Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.
Our band name was chosen to reflect the diversity of styles we write in. Our first song was a country song and as songwriters we decided to remain as diverse as we wanted. As artists, we have tried to focus our genre a bit more but we still want to create and celebrate cross genre songs.
KATYA DIAZ has toured Europe, America and Mexico singing background and/or dancing for numerous artists including Passion Pit, Thalia, Alejandro Sanz and Beyoncé. As a vocalist for Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner DVD she had the honor of singing backgrounds for Lalah Hathaway’s Grammy winning live performance of “Something”. Officially songwriting for only 4 years now Katya wrote the national commercial for JC Penny’s 2015 spring campaign and collaborated with acclaimed writers such as Itaal Shur and Stuart Matthewman.
CHRIS HIERRO has been writing and producing Latin music from an early age and has worked with many popular artists including Leslie Grace, Eli Jas and Prince Royce. He has also performed and toured as a keyboardist and background vocalist for some of Latin music’s most legendary stars such as Jerry Rivera, Obie Bermúdez and multi Grammy Award winner Alejandro Sanz. Chris Hierro reached the #1 position of the Billboard Tropical Airplay charts writing & producing the hit “We never Looking Back” for bachata artist Toby Love featuring French Montana. Aside from his work in Latin music, Chris also scored the Indie critically acclaimed Action/Comedy film “Full Circle” (E One Entertainment) and continues to work closely with director Solvan “Slick” Naim on his upcoming film and TV projects.
Chris produces all our music and we write the songs together. We shot most of our videos ourselves with an iPhone 7, with the exception of “Curves into Grooves” which was done by the awesome Solvan ‘Slick’ Naim. We have a wonderful friend Ricardo Ramos who helps with mixing the records when he can and plays in the band when in town.
Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
We get inspired all the time by almost everything; Music, moments, sounds, stories, love, heartbreak, nature …. we are constantly creating.
