GUERO LOCO – WINNER OF THE 2013 CHICAGO MUSIC AWARDS FOR BEST REGGAETON ENTERTAINER!!!
At first glance, you see him in an all Latin crowd and wonder “What is this Gringo doing here?” But as GL releases his unique sound and all-Spanish flow, you begin to see the Gueroloco that Latin music fans across the globe have come to love and support. Multi-talented in so many ways, if his charisma and passion for Latin Urban music don’t make you say “wow”, his style and lyrics will. He is a performer to the fullest meaning of the word, headlining shows throughout the world. Joining the military at age 17 was the first of many steps that would lead GL to realize his calling. He later trained at their official language school and learned Spanish. After being a local radio personality on 2 different Spanish language stations, GL decided to take it up a notch and began to rap all-Spanish. His first album, “FUERA DE LUGAR” features 15 tracks, each very distinct in both style and lyrical content. His life experiences are expressed through his lyrics. From clubbing and ladies to his ties to the street and his views on immigration reform, nothing goes untouched. The songs contain a vibrant mix of Hip Hop, Reggaeton, Cumbia, Rock and Bachata. The exposure of being featured in multiple newspapers and magazines and television exposure on Univision, CBS, Musica 1 and Televisa accompanied by a strong internet hype and various International shows, have all added to the worldwide attention that GL has received in recent years. He has headlined a multi-city international tour in Mexico and his new album Fuera de Lugar came out in 2010. Gueroloco won the 2011 Chicago Music Award for Best Reggaeton Entertainer, his 2nd nomination. Once considered an outsider by many, GL continues to express himself and his unique experiences with the Latin culture and lifestyle the only way that he knows how….. Through his MUSIC.
