Transformation

 

One of my main focuses this year was to be more authentic in my presentation. Some of the things I enjoy include ease, affordability, comfort, and fashion. That being said, I’ve decided to:

1.)   chop off all my hair to make my day to day prep easier

2.)   reduce the amount of products I use (makeup, hair spray, etc...) and go with a more natural look

3.)   balance the masculine and feminine expression through my presentation

Being squeaky clean and trying to come off as perfect can be exhausting. Furthermore, 

 

"Pink Panther"

 

It’s Memorial Day and justice is being served! The “Pink Panther” has arrived to take a stand against corruption, greed, and fraud. So what you waiting for? Press play and witness the drama unfold on this trial of a lifetime!!

 

Shelved

 

In February of 2018, I wrote a handful of songs which were intended to makeup the album I was planning to release on August 8th of this year. However, I’ve opted to go with the flow and since contributions on my IndieGogo campaign were scarce, I’ve decided to shelve this project. I’m nurturing NEW ideas I'm finding joy in doing instead of trying to force something to happen. My ultimate goal is to have fun while bringing them to life. Thankfully, I have created quite a catalog throughout the years and the NEW songs I've written, fortunately, are some of my best creations yet (lyrically, melodically, & production wise,) so I’m sure that in due time, they’ll see the light of day either through me or another artist. Priorities have changed, and I’m now going to be focusing and exploring other creative avenues that I find equally exciting. Nonetheless, writing will continue as I thoroughly enjoy playing around with words. Thank you for your continuous love and support!

"Pink Panther" 5.28.18

 

NEXT WEEK!!! "Pink Panther" visual arrives!

 

"Guacamole"

 

 

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, B-6, and omega-3 fatty acids that are essential to a healthy lifestyle. I'd like to get this week started off on a good note; sit down, relax, and enjoy a spoon full of "Guacamole." A little side note- this is probably the funnest video I've ever done and I LOVE it! Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do! Bon appetit!!

 

"El Anillo 'pa Cuando?"

Let's "Move 2 Miami!"

Guac Soon

 

"Guacamole" video countdown has begun with a premiere date set for MONDAY, MAY 14th, 2017. You ready?!

 

"Saddle" Up

 

            “Saddle” was originally pitched to camps of R&B songstresses like Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Rihanna, etc… however, no matter who I contacted, word never got back. Perhaps it’s the fact that I’m not a well known Hollywood go-to writer, and that as an independent creative, I’ve yet to acquire major clout, nonetheless, I believe in this song so much I decided to release it as a single and with it, a visual to support it. Inspired by life and a lover of mine, this song effortlessly mixes in some love and sexual tension metaphors to help convey the message of saddling up and riding this wave called life. There is beauty in the ups and downs and all one can do is brace oneself, learn, and tag along for this journey. Shooting this video was very cathartic being that I FELT a necessity to bring to life these ideas that had been haunting me for about a year. I clearly remember

 

VISUAL TRILOGY

 

This month of May, I’ll be delivering to you a trilogy of visuals that are all very different, but still, very ULISES. My goal with them is to present to you ideas that have long been clamoring to physically be adapted onscreen. The common denominator of them all is creativity with each showcasing different sides of who ULISES, the creative visionary/artist is. Like David Bowie, “I’m a corporation of characters” too, and all of these which I’ll be presenting to you will showcase a different storyline I’ve adapted to each song as well as a variety of human emotions. “Saddle” showcases sexuality and desires, “Guacamole” showcases fun and happiness, and “Pink Panther” showcases justice with a twist of fun. Can’t wait till you guys see what I’ve been working on these past few months!! Stay tuned!!!

 

MASK ON

 

I love the power of transformation that makeup facilitates. One has the potential to bring ideas to life through various colors and textures via creativity. Best thing of it all, the canvas can be cleared and ready for the next “painting” at the end of each session or day. My goal with my music has always been to put smiles on people’s faces and make them feel good. My visuals- to bring to life a world of positivity, possibility, and creativity. This is why I do music... For me, music, fashion, and art have and will always be deeply intertwined; self-expression with an intent to connect with other individuals around the world will always remain the main goal, and I hope that through my artwork I'll continue to inspire, unite, and positively affect people from all walks of life.

 

"EL PILOTO"

 

Three things that make "El Piloto" special:

1. First SPANISH song I've produced, written, and released in my career
2. I hired a Spanish Guitarist to play to the track
3. The Mixing engineer has worked with Britney Spears, Ke$ha, and Diplo

All in all, this song is a winner in my book and I LOVE it! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Press PLAY and be sure to follow me on Spotify!

"SACRED JOURNEY"

 

"Sacred Journey" came to life within two hours of both writing and recording it. What I LOVE about this record is that it feels unlike anything I've ever done. It's lush, organic instrumentation mixed with that falsetto makes this record one that never gets old; timeless. So, wait no more! Embark on this "Sacred Journey" with me!!! PRESS PLAY above and enjoy!!!

 

 

Indie Gogo Campaign: NEW ALBUM 8.8.18

 

For the past couple of months, I’ve been recording and writing non-stop and have compiled an AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS set of new songs which I can’t wait to share. This go round, I have the opportunity to work with TOP Hollywood mixers (who have worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Sia, Kelis, Major Lazer, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, etc…) who will contribute to the creation of this NEW album. However, all this has a price and that’s where I’d like to solicit your help. I’ve created an Indie Gogo campaign where different rewards are available for your contribution. My goal is to use any provided financial help for Mixing & Mastering, Marketing, and Lawyers’ fees. There are many EXCITING ideas I’d like to bring to life with your support and the GOOD news is: I’ll be able to employ SEVERAL other artists which is always really wonderful and soul satisfying. This album is the first HUGE step I’ve taken as an artist since quitting my 10-year relationship with corporate America May of last year. After this, I will finally have a tangible representation of all the hard work I’ve put into making music I love throughout the years. I want to connect with other people who may feel as if they don’t belong whether it be for their race, sexuality, ideas, etc... and furthermore, prove the naysayers and haters wrong. If, however, this is not an option for you, I’ve also opened up a digital store here on my website which features AMAZING ULISES swag. If you’re a little tight on money, but would love to help, check out my Spotify page and listen to over 11 albums worth of tunes. Every time you listen to my music on this wonderful platform, I get paid a few cents. With time, it adds up and well, like in any presidential campaign, it all helps. Furthermore, feel free to share my music and or social media handles with other folks. While I know August is still a few months away, it gives me time to prepare and organize this new album campaign and hustle till I have the acquired the funds to propel it into existence and give it the proper marketing it deserves. Being an independent artist requires one being the full-time artist, full-time office, and full-time team while keeping the enthusiasm, drive, and creativity afloat. Whether it’s $1 or $1000, you are treasured by me. Your voice is being heard loud and clear, and I will remain eternally appreciative and grateful for any support you can lend to this campaign.
