Original Music-Multimedia Production-Artist Development

Music has been my life since I was very little. I picked up my dads 1952 gibson guitar and was hooked.

I love sharing my music, helping others create theirs, and producing music for muitimedia projects.

Thank you for coming to my website and please feel free to email me to say hello. Happy music making!

Recent Albums

A Stop In Gallup

This album is a tribute to my father. He was a family and business man but also an artist creating music, poetry and paintings. The cover art is his original artwork and the lyrics on the album are his poems.

I wrote the music to his poetry over a three day period. I would read a poem, pick up my guitar and play the first thing that came to my mind and that was the song. I then performed and produced the music remaining as true to my fathers poetic phrasing as I could. I also repeated certain lines to create some song structor.

It’s an abstract collection of songs I call “Poetry Rock”. It speaks of moments that bring meaning and purpose to life. It was recorded in Nashville TN and Los Angeles.

Start Living

A few years ago I experienced a crisis of purpose. I woke up one morning with a loud humming in my ears. Diagnosed as Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, it brought my music producing career to an abrupt stop.

After much soul searching, I looked at my life and came to the conclusion that I had not really been expressing myself fully. I was producing other artists but kept putting my own music on hold. It caught up to me and affected my health. 

In a leap of faith, I put everything in storage and hit the road traveling throughout the United States and Canada in search of healing and renewed purpose.  The songs on “Start Living” are my creative recovery. It was recorded in Nashville TN, at the Parlor Room Studio.

Artist Development

Performance Coaching







“Not only was Carlos our artist development coach but we wrote a really cool song with him called “No One” that ended up on our first gold record!”

Aly and Aj

Recording Artists

“Working with Carlos was rewarding on both a musical and personal level.  From a technical perspective, the things he taught me about songwriting and song structure have remained a part of all my compositions for more than a decade.  His skills as a producer are unmatched.  He listens to and is respectful of where you (the artist) are trying to take your music, unbiased by his personal musical preferences.  In other words, your songs will sound as you imagined them to sound, and even better, but consistent with your vision.  He’s an accomplished musician and could easily play the parts he may be suggesting, but he’ll encourage (make) you to play them – you’ll be better for it and perhaps a bit surprised by what you can do with a little nudge and encouragement 😉.  Simply put, don’t pass up the opportunity to work with Carlos!”


Lawyer, Music Producer

“I always wanted to write my own songs and make a solo album. Carlos encouraged me to write from an authentic place and produced my EP, “Be The Love”. He made my music dream come true.”

Dr. Margie Gayle

Singer, Songwriter, Psychologist, teaches about the mind-body connection.

“Carlos is a wealth of knowledge to the emerging recording artist.”

Brian Reeves

Multi platinum producer / mixer - Miley Cyrus, U2, Vanessa Hudgens, Joe Cocker, and others.

“I have been working with Carlos for over ten years. He has helped me discover my songwriter voice, and has given me the tools I needed to become a better performer. Working with Carlos has made me a better musician over all and I am so thankful I met him. I would recommend his coaching program for anyone that wants to become a better musical artist and explore the world of songwriting and performance”.


Songwriter, Producer, Performer

“Carlos, Thank you for all of your help! You got me going again!
You have been a great teacher, mentor, producer and friend.
You have helped me find the direction I must travel and the vehicle to get me there. 
Your example, your music and your vision is an inspiration that helps me stay on my path to my own musical dream”.
