about

Sic Pilot is inspired by my ambiguous national identity. While composing the sounds for this album, I asked myself, "What does it mean to be a gay Mexican-American in the U.S. today?" Answers to this question ranged from deeply personal issues of homophobia I've encountered to more nationalistic concerns. I combine spoken word and electronic sounds throughout the music by quoting works by Shakespeare, Langston Hughes, Billie Holiday, recent news stories, and social media rants.

In the end, I unpack issues of race, sexual identity, and national identity while still poking fun at myself. I hope you enjoy my debut album, Sic Pilot!

P.S. All proceeds are going towards my move to the U.K. for school this fall!

Thank you to Mike Early, Jonathan Bailey Holland, and John Mallia for their support and mentorship on several of the pieces on this album. Thank you to Rebecca Buening for creating such fantastic cover art design!! Also, to my family for not knowing I recorded their singing during Christmas of 2016. ;)
