Today we’d like to introduce you to RVCHL.
RVCHL, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m a singer-songwriter from Cuba, living in Los Angeles. I have been writing songs since I was six years old. Music was the only way I could leave Cuba to move to the United States with my family after winning an international song festival. The RVCHL musical style is influenced by Pop, R&B and Lo-Fi music. Songwriting and performing has been my dream forever and while I’m still growing as a musician and as a person, I hope that listening to my music brings people as much joy as it brings me to create it.
Has it been a smooth road?
Nothing is easy, especially when it matters greatly! I think releasing music independently at first was a bit overwhelming for me since I fully self-manage my career and at the time, I was still learning about management and marketing. It felt like I was singing into a void at one point and it created a lot of frustration and anxiety for me. After that initial EP, I realized that taking the pressure out of music making is essential for my well being and creative journey. I’ve been having a lot of fun since then and have been focusing on the things that matter most to me, learning and growing as a musician and artist
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
I’m a singer-songwriter and producer. If you catch one of my performances you know I usually love having a guitar by me. I try to keep things simple when I perform live, its just me with my guitar and a sampler. I’m proud of all the support I’ve received so far from fans, friends and collaborators. I’d say I have an odd perspective of life and I try to channel that in my songwriting.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
LA is great, definitely has big pond energy. I used to live in Miami, FL before and performing was definitely easier there because its a smaller place. I would say its totally worth it to start out in LA, its tough but there’s a certain energy in this city that keeps your dreams alive, even when things get hard and we face rejection left and right. I’m still getting acquainted with certain aspects of booking gigs and finding certain scenes in the city but there is way more opportunity than in other places I’ve lived.
