Filmtalkz chats with Andres Aparicio, a music artist from Bakersfield with over 50,000 monthly listeners and four albums under his belt, about his career as an artist and how he creates fun music videos. With his genre-defying music, this is definitely worth a listen…
Andres knew he had a love for creating music early on with his life, picking up his first violin when he was only just eight years old. Influenced early on by bands such as My Chemical Romance, Dance Gavin Dance, Drake, and Say Anything.
Through this melting pot of music taste, you can listen to any of Andres’ Incredible albums and detect notes of rock, pop, hip-hop, jazz, and even Latin genres, which ultimately creates a very unique listen.
As Andres grew his audience he wanted to dip his toes into creating music videos. Unlike other artists, Andres had complete creative freedom on what content he could make. From a court room full of characters from Sesame Street in Shit Could Be Worse, to a 30 minute short film inspired by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Champagne Golfers, his videos are just as funky as his music.
On the podcast, we spoke about the styling of his videos which tend to have a retro vibe helping it create a nostalgic feeling to his art, as well as how he goes about developing concepts. With Andres saying ‘I just wanna do this for fun and put it out there’, his content creation all centres around honesty and simply having fun.
With a new album on the way, Sonny Torres and the Multiverse of Sadness, you can check out his music on Spotify and Apple Music, and to see his Incredible music videos make sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel.
