After her 2007 fire debut Muérdete La Lengua, we have long awaited for this San Francisco-birthed Chilean songstress to show us what else she gots.
Now I first witnessed this singer/songwriter and keyboard sensation live when she took part in this year’s LAMC performance and also gave Remezcla an exclusive live show, which she totally rocked on the keys, and left us craving for more.
As we all know, there are just certain artists that kill it live and automatically convert you as their new fans. Well, all I gotta say is that this chick knows what she’s doing when she pounds those keys and can definitely intrigue one with her live performances (below find her tour dates).
Multi-instrumental and über-talented Francisca Valenzuela‘s highly-anticipated sophomore album Buen Soldado (good soldier) is proving to be hotter than the first — it was released in Chile a few months ago and has already jumped up the charts as #3 in her native motherland.
As it is, Tuesday, August 16th, this latest record will have its US release to be out digitally, produced by Vicente Sanfuentes and Mocky. You can expect to hear her signature keyboard-centric and solid, ripened pop sound that’s filled with a melodic spectrum of cheery, upbeats and some sweet, melancholic tunes as well. Take the single “Corazón” — the low-tempo tune features Miss Valenzuela’s vocal chords in a dolce and breathy manner that makes one’s skin shiver, positively. The lyrics are just gorgeous too!
