08 Nov The L.A.-based romantic revival trio TRES SOULS announces the launch of their first EP and Kickstarter campaign
Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles November 2018. After performing together for many years throughout Southern California, the Los Angeles-based trio romántico Tres Souls announces the launch of their first EP and a Kickstarter campaign. The recordings include two original songs and five classic songs from Mexico and other Latin American countries as well as collaborations with several Los Angeles-based guest artists that specialize in the bolero genre.
For about a year, Tres Souls have been writing songs and working on creative content for their debut EP. They have created original songs as well as rearranged classic boleros, and they are now in the final stages of finishing the recording process. This album is a homage to boleros, and trios románticos. Together, they have crafted an EP that is authentic and innovative.
Now in post-production, they are asking for the public’s support. They are grateful that the Los Angeles and Southern California communities have opened their doors to them and allowed them to be a part of their family and celebrations. They are continuing the generational stories of their cultures through traditional Mexican music, specifically boleros. The three musicians have dedicated themselves to creating a classic sounding EP while maintaining an authenticity to who they are as individuals and as musicians. Their mission is to stay true to the genre, while making their own arrangements and branching out in ways that make sense to a particular song or story.
The contributions from the Kickstarter campaign will go towards mixing, mastering, CD artwork and printing, PR, a music video, CD release events and paying supporting musicians. In addition to helping them support their tours. Tres Souls will release videos and additional content on their social media during the campaign to keep everyone updated on their progress.
About Tres Souls
The genre of Boleros originated in Cuba then it made its way into Mexico in the 1940s. Three-piece bands were known to perform this style of music and now we have a new generation of artists. Tres Souls is a modern romantic trio made up of Jesus Martinez (Requinto), Rocio Mendoza (Lead Vocals), and Roberto Carlos (Rhythm Guitar). The ensemble represents a revival of traditional trios, inspired by the Golden Era of Mexican cinema. Based out of Los Angeles, they have been performing together for seven years, and their mission is to help preserve the genre of bolero music in Los Angeles, and if possible, broaden their audience to more willing listeners in other parts of the globe. They are part of a new generation of artists dedicated to the revival of trio romántico music in today’s era.
Tres Souls have performed all over the greater Los Angeles area. Their past performances include The Broad Stage’s original cultural educational musical called “Musical Explorers”, AIRBNB’s Open Spotlight, MOLAA, Metro Arts Presents at Union Station, Plaza De Cultura Y Artes, Rosenthal Theater, Casa 0101, KPFK, KXLU, and most recently at Walt Disney Studios for the premier of Coco the movie.
