Some people spend their entire lives not knowing their true passion. But before the age of 10, the incredible artist known as Thiago was well aware that his calling to entertain!
Thiago was born in Rio de Janeiro, and he grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he began to create his artistic footprint at an early age. At only 9-years-old, he drew caricatures of guests for an Argentine television show and, later, Thiago went on to develop a promising career in Argentina, mostly in TV and musical theater. He then traveled to the United States, gaining momentum with his unique fusion of sound, and currently lives in New York City.
Thiago’s music can be heard all across the US and Latin America. Most recently, Thiago’s hot new song “Rio,” already a smash hit in Argentina, was released on August 19th for his US audience. It’s catchy. It’s fun. It makes you want to dance. Not to mention, it’s trilingual. That’s right, Thiago sings in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
You can find “Rio” on iTunes and all digital media. As you’re listening to it, you’ll see why many people are calling Thiago “the next Ricky Martin.”
The sexy music video for “Rio” rolls out on September 16th, and it can be seen on his YouTube channel and on Facebook. See it! Experience it! You’ve never seen or heard anything like it.
Jared Wohl is a superstar waiting to happen. He’s sexy. He’s hot. He’s talented beyond words. And did we mention he also donated a portion of his liver to save his younger brother’s life back in February of this year? Yeah, that too. Ladies, get ready to swoon.
A self-taught singer/songwriter from Morris Plains, New Jersey, Wohl grew up listening to Motown and other oldies, which would later influence his soulful music. Wohl has been likened to artists such as Adam Levine, John Mayer and James Morrison.
Wohl released his solo EP under the name of “Farewell Luna,” but now simply goes by his given name. This past year, his debut single “By The Morning” received notable accolades such as the Grand Prize for the Hertz Movin’ Music Original Song Contest and an opening slot for Sublime with Rome at The Stone Pony, one of the world’s best known music venues, which was also the starting point for artists such as Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen. Dubbed as one of ReverbNation’s ‘Breaking Artists,’ Wohl has teamed up with top-notch industry musicians such as Sean Hurley, Aaron Sterling, and Andy Burton. In case you were wondering, collectively, these three guys have quite the pedigree; they’ve worked with John Mayer, Gavin DeGraw, John Legend, and Robin Thicke.
So, what are you waiting for? Check out Jared’s website to see his rendition of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” which we have to admit, is actually better than the original. Here’s hoping that it ends up on his much anticipated new album that’s due out later this summer.
