With a voice like a choir of angels, Americana in the soul and flamenco in the heart, Brian Lopez' debut Ultra ascends to the top of the Tucson, Arizona new music scene. Juggling chamber pop and heartstrings, desert rock and epic melodies, we discover an album doing honors to classic crooners such as Roy Orbison, and yet creating a truly contemporary soundscape: ultra-magical, ultra fascinating, ultra-Brian Lopez. Formally known as front-man of the eccentric rock band Mostly Bears, he has clearly come a long way, leading him through the discovery of his Spanish origins along which he has created a fascinating style. Ultra is a stunning debut as a solo artist, which will propel Brian Lopez next to Giant Sand and Calexico as the third major export coming from his hometown, Tucson. The incomparably high timbre in Lopez' voice induces pleasant goosebumps. Over the years making music, he has developed a very unique style of interpreting songs and during his studies of guitar and piano at the conservatory of Tucson, his voice received its fine tuning as well. For his solo debut, Brian Lopez takes himself and his audience on a musical journey on which he is able to realize his visions all-out. Ultra is fed upon the high vocal quality and the elemental sound of Brian Lopez, always enchanting through subtle string arrangements, emphasizing the sinews of each song. The output is an album with a timeless, classical sound and a truly unique character, marrying a variety of influences into a harmonious musical whole. Includes mp3 download code.
