Arzalez has release his debut album, "El Mismo Dicho En Mis Palabras."
When a musician counts his influences as The Beatles, Mana, Juan Gabriel and Metallica, his musical stylings are destined to be unique. That is the case with musical artist Arzalez. Born and raised in Edinburg, Arzalez, has written and recorded with an intimate sound that shows respect to many cultural influences.
This fact is easy to see in his debut album, "El Mismo Dicho En Mis Palabras," which Arzalez has been working on for many years. As one of the members of Tr3n, Arzalez understand what it takes to create unique sides. It is for this reason that this album is so different from his work with Tr3n. When asked to define the genre in "El Mismo Dicho En Mis Palabras,” Arzalez calls it Latin Drama, a term he embraced at a recent music festival in Houston.
The album is an intimate look at his life expressed through the poetry of his lyrics and music. Drawing on personal events, the album’s title stems from a saying he recalls from his father which loosely means that popular sayings and stories are told over and over again, but with the words and sentiments changing based on the person who is telling the tale. One story that is particularly important to him is the song called, “Nada Me Duele Mas” (Nothing hurts me more).
This song tells of how a younger Arzalez standing in an airport saying farewell to his newly enlisted brother, Ramiro, not knowing if they would ever see each other again. At the core of the song is not the separation that is the pain he speaks of, but the fact that at the time he was unable to tell him how much Ramiro meant to him.
The album and performance dates are available on his website http://www.arzalez.com/. His album is also found on iTunes, Google play and Amazon.
