ARTIST INFO

KATZÙ OSO

BIO:


Katzù Oso is a Latino solo artist based out of Los Angeles, CA. The moniker of Paul Hernandez, Katzù Oso combines upbeat, dancey production with dreamy vocals. Taking inspiration from artists like HOMESHAKE, Tame Impala and more, Hernandez sought to combine a dreamy synth-drenched sound with influences from growing up east of Los Angeles, CA – the sounds of growing up east of a major metropolitan city, of being young and brown in America.

Katzù Oso’s music is written entirely in his bedroom but since the drop of his first single, “Sophie” in April of 2017, Katzù Oso has been growing quickly: from performing at backyard shows in his hometown of Montebello, CA to performing at venues such as Highland Park’s The Hi Hat and Los Angeles’ The Resident. Katzù Oso released his debut mixtape on July 20, 2018.

2019 brings more from Katzù Oso, including touring the US and releasing his second mixtape in late-Spring.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:

Sold out The Echo in Los Angeles, CA.

2017: Opened for Tyler, The Creator, Brockhampton, Steve Lacy & Clairo. Featured on Spotify’s Discover Weekly Playlist

RECENT RELEASE:  PASTEL      “In preparation for his debut mixtape, Pastel, set to be released July 20th via Counter Culture Records and Cosmica Records, “Crazy4luvinU” is an impressive mark of ever growing success from the young artist. The track’s immediate atmosphere clings to the throes of love, tangled in bliss and worry. Hernandez follows suit, leading with intimate vocals in a breathy and hazy delivery: “You make it really hard to love you and it feels like you’re drifting away / Holding on to us seems real to me and I know you never felt this way.” As Hernandez continues to sing, the lyrical components changes towards worry of moving on with another, and the “insanity” for continuing to love. Chimes of synths fill in the inaudible vocals, which becomes apparent that all focus is now on the textured groove. Enclosing the entirety with a romantic core leaves “Crazy4luvinU” as the perfect summer love anthem for this year.”   – Janette of Girl Underground Music

THE RED PEARS

BIO:

The Red Pears are an indie/alternative band from El Monte, CA just a little east of Los Angeles.

The band consists of Henry Vargas on guitar and vocals, Jose Corona on drums, and their good friend Patrick Juarez taking on bass duties. The Red Pears were created the summer of 2014, when Jose and Henry got together forming another with a new concept- having known each since high school playing in different groups, separately and together. Things took off for The Red Pears rather quickly, crediting shared similar influences, similar backgrounds and a similar mindset as the main reasons.  

Starting off as a duo, their first gig was an open mic at a church. Eventually the duo evolved into a trio and started playing anything from house parties, to bars, to coffee shops, to open mics. The next natural step was to go into the studio and record. Putting together a small budget and recording in converted garages and bedrooms-they released their debut recording We Bring Anything to the Table… Except Tables, We Can’t Bring Tables to the Table, which garnered unexpected attention. The band has been on an upward trajectory ever since releasing their latest record For Today, For Tomorrow, For What Is, For What Could’ve Been- expanding their Los Angeles presence with shows in Nor Cal and the Southwest. Eyeing the rest of the US in 2019.
