About Gustavo Gustavo Alberto is a 25 year-old singer-songwriter who lives between two countries, two languages and three cultures, American, Mexican and Mexican-American/Chicano. Influenced at a young age by his father’s guitar playing, Gustavo grew up listening to everything from traditional Mexican folk songs, the smooth vocals of Mexican balladeers like Luis Miguel, bands like the Beatles, U2, Mana and songwriters like Cat Stevens from whom he learned the appeal and beauty of music in two languages. After moving to Los Angeles, Gustavo pursued his career as a singer/song-writer and teamed up with producers Heroes and Villains (Dan Burns and Billy Mohler) who after hearing his Spanish material encouraged Gustavo to record an EP. The result was Gustavo’s debut EP “La Ciudad” (The City) which showcases five distinct and original songs that meld the musical landscapes of Latin rhythms and melodies with the sonic textures of American rock. Each song takes the listener on a different journey and finds heart and soul in a world of concrete and glass.
