Wednesday: Fayuca – Other Lover

Phoenix, Arizona based, Fayuca, is a Reggae-Rock/ Latino group, fronted by founding member, Gabo Fayuca. Their sound shifts through genres while blending modern-reggae melodies with Latin percussion, tied seamlessly by razor guitar riffs and progressive rock breakdowns. 

Their music has been featured on MTV, Univision, FOX Sports and other popular TV networks. Fayuca’s instrumental, La Venganza, was hand picked by movie director Robert Rodriguez to be used as the main title theme to El Rey Network’s original series, MATADOR. 

Currently backed by bass player, Mario Sepulveda, trumpet player, Danny Torgersen, and drummer, Arturo Sosa, the quartet has become a national and international touring act. They have shared the stage with leaders in their genre like Molotov, 311, Cultura Profetica, Slightly Stoopid, Sublime with Rome, Damien Marley and many more. 

While finishing high school in Tolleson, Arizona, Gabo sparked an interest for writing music and forming a bilingual-rock band. Since their first album release in 2004, Fayuca has launched four studio albums, including Barrio Sideshow, released on Fervor Records in 2013. Their songs promote Latino culture, good vibes, and self-identification. Touring insatiably between writing and recording music, Fayuca strives to inspire people around the world by spreading a message of courage, love, and empowerment. You can also catch Fayuca on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

Thursday: Ariel Miranda – Thoughts 

Ariel Miranda is a 16 year old up and coming alternative pop artist from Tucson, Arizona. She began playing acoustic guitar at age 7 and received an electric guitar with an amp for her 8th birthday. She plugged a mic in to her amp and hasn’t put it down since. She also plays piano and ukulele. Ariel has a very strong passion for writing music. Every original song she sings is written by her. She has a special connection to every song because in one way or another, it relates back to her. When people hear her music and words, she hopes they can relate and connect to it in some way. She hopes they can feel the music and emotion that’s there. Music isn’t just something Ariel does, it’s how she lives her life.

Ariel was featured on Glamour Magazine’s, “You Sang My Song” – the Ross Lynch episode. She has also performed at multiple venues throughout the state of Arizona. Ariel’s newest single , “Thoughts”, was just released last month and is available on all music platforms. Her first EP titled, “Golden Aces”, was released in August 2016 when she was 13 years old.
