Listen: El Medio's Intimate and Meditative Track 'Fuiste La Tormenta' [Puerto Rico]

Read more

El Medio is Leonardo Balasques, a Brooklyn-based, Puerto Rican singer/songwriter who crafts introspective, touching songs. To listen to his music is to take a moment for yourself; to slow your hurried pace down for a second and take pleasure in brief glimpses of honesty. His meditative eight-track album, No tengas miedo al amor, came out last year, but he has a new track out titled “Fuiste la Tormenta.” The song clocks in at under 2 minutes, but Balasques explores enough intimacy in that limited space, his me-to-you address feeling simultaneously focused and universal. He’s just a guy and his guitar, looking to say something. And sometimes that’s enough.
