Oscar on CBC Music October 14 2014

Juno Award-winning guitarist Oscar Lopez proudly announces his new album, Apasionado. On his 12th album, the Chilean–Canadian skillfully blends elements of jazz, blues and pop, propelling his electrifying instrumentals — gunning the engine from the opening notes of "Ayer" and not taking his foot off the throttle for the remainder of the ride.

Apasionado will be released Oct. 21, but you can stream selections from the album in advance by clicking below

Apasionado RELEASE October 21, 2014 September 02 2014

Apasionado....Oscar Lopez' latest collection of latin-guitar originals recorded over the past year in Penticton, BC.

Oscar spotlights talented local musicians who helped him realize his new tuneful and energetic album.

Guitar great, Rik Emmett says about Apasionado:

"It's great to hear mi hermano Oscar with all of his signature fire and passion. Sounds to me like El Tigre is on the loose."

In his own words, Oscar says, "This musical journey emulates where I have been in my life.  It is a deep reflection of my passion and I feel that this is the best music I have ever produced."


It all started in the Okanagan ... August 12 2014

Oscar is excited about the upcoming release of his new album "Apasionado" (in English, passionate).

It was during a visit to Penticton that he talked to his friend, Justin Glibbery, the musical director at Penticton Secondary School and leader of the jazz group, Offramp.

 

It was Glibbery who suggested Lopez record an album. Oscar was feeling musically inspired from living  in that beautiful place so the time was right.

Together with Glibbery, drummer Michael Treadway plus young Penticton musicians and performers  from Kelowna, Perth, Vancouver and Calgary, Oscar had a great team to help him produce his latest song set. The album was recorded in Glibbery's studio in Penticton.

"Apasionado" will be released independently on October 21st through www.oscarlopez.com
