She began to compose at an early age and her first single Hoy, it was a finalist at La Removida, a musical talents competition, organized by National Radio of Spain under the label of Sony Music in 2014.
David Gonzalez is a chameleonic musician.
From early childhood David (Madrid, 1975) had a wide range of musical influences from his family home. From Copla and Flamenco, to Symphonic Rock and Techno, passing through all the melodic music of the 80's / 90's. He looked for something different and so was surrounded by Hip Hop and Rap tapes at first, and then jazz and mainly blues, untill he started playing classical and flamenco music.
Composing since adolescence, at age of 16 he was singing and writing the lyrics of the Blues/Rock band “Nocturband”, with whom he played in mythical clubs like Sala Midnight,
La Sala, Salsa Parking and A Diario among others. His role as bassist introduced him to the flamenco fusion music accompanying to guitarist Ramon Vallejo. This process breaks all his internal musical schemes and when he returns playing guitar back, everything he played had a flamenco flavour.
