One of the best things about me is that I am completely drawn to these incredibly talented people. (You should see my wife’s illustration or calligraphy sometime, but that’s a different post.)
When Grisel and I became friends, I had NO IDEA that she was this gifted actress and singer. She was just a cool girl whose company I enjoyed. Then, while she was still here in LA, I got to see her perform, and got to see her utterly transform.
Art is a way to make your soul grow, to paraphrase Kurt Vonnegut, and I have been fortunate enough to see Grisel’s soul grow to gargantuan proportions. Her creative road has been a hard one, and she has been tempted to veer from it in the past, and if I’ve done her any good turn, it was to always urge her to doggedly pursue her artistic dreams.
Los Traques seems like a good place for her. More importantly, they SOUND like a good place for her.
I’m lucky to be able to share her talents, and now so are you.
Los Traques from El Paso Texas. The lead singer Grisel is SO FUCKING TALENTED! I loooove her voice. She does an amazing rendition of La Llorna. She rocks the shit out of any song.
