Singer-songwriter Anderson Rocio who shot to global fame with her song Paradise featured on Netflix show Lucifer is excited about her latest single My World, released this week on March 3.
The global citizen, we’d like to stake a claim on (she lived in east Auckland with her soul mate, Kiwi hubby Wayne Pottow) shuttles between Los Angeles, Queenstown and Half Moon Bay.
Rocio spent 2021 as a guest artist on Sol3Mio’s NZ nationwide tour followed by a sophomore EP We’re Fine.
Half Spanish-half American musician, who sailed around the world in a 44ft catamaran with her family and a Yamaha p60 piano for company, has a snapchat with EastLife from Echo Park in LA.
Describe yourself in three words:
Kind, driven, versatile
How would you describe your music to nana?
Classically trained, of course! but I am a singer-songwriter at heart, in a love affair with words…and this year, I’m going to have a little more fun.
Fill in the dots…
I’m most excited about….the unknown…. and to play those stadiums. I started writing songs because….I had too many words in my head to know what to do with. Secret song recipe……is to just keep writing! It’s always changing, at the moment though…it’s being in a room with Los Angeles based artist ‘Kate the Dreamer’, LA Producer ‘Nydge’ and plenty of iced coffees. Can’t do without…the ocean. The time I had stage fright….the time?? Timessssss….. last memorable time, my first show of the Sol3 Mio NZ 2021 Tour! Why? you ask… Well it was Sol3 Mio…and my first tour.
My muse…life and trying to figure it out, plenty of material there I promise. Love east Auckland because….how could you not? the views, the water, Granny’s Sunday dinners, CreateCafe coffees… a little paradise. My nationwide tour with SOL3 Mio…showed me you can do exactly what you dream about. Paradise is…a song that reminds me there is always a sunrise. LA to me….is so many things… another home, my favourite place to feel uncomfortable. A place so that explodes with challenges and magic at the same time. Favourite way to kill time….watching Friends. Most cherished moment…sailing on a boat with my family for three years will always be in the highlight reel. Signature dance move…if it was a good one, it would probably have a name.
Currently working on…..My new music! Getting ready for my new single release on March 3 (NZ). You can Pre-Save ‘My World’ today! Might even be working on a music video… and rehearsing for shows of course. Are you ready for it? Best work so far…the ones that you haven’t heard yet! but I do love the single from my last EP We’re Fine called Blue. There’s something about it, it will always be one of my favourites.
