MANUEL VS THE STATUE OF LIBERTY, CONCEPT ALBUM
The official concept album behind the hit Off-Broadway musical by de la Puente and Davila. Manuel is as American as Taco Salad and student debt, but if he wants to go to college himself he'll have to risk coming out as an undocumented immigrant. That could be extra tricky now that new immigration reform laws require all so-called-illegal immigrants to fight the Statue of Liberty (a genderqueer rock n’ roll version of the American icon) in a real life high stakes boxing match for their green-cards. Is Manuel brave enough or even crazy enough to take on the two-hundred and twenty-five ton mammoth of copper and steel? This raucous musical comedy leaps from Latin rhythms to rap and hip-hop to glam rock to soaring Broadway ballads as our hero navigates a treacherous world where any stranger could become an enemy, and even baby Jesus can be deported.
THE MAGIC TIME MACHINE
A collection of rock-pop inspired songs by David Davila from his song-cycle, The Magic Time Machine. The perfect addition to the long tradition of "Break-up Albums."
A massive year long cycle and vlog composed and performed by David Davila in 2011. Davila challenged himself to write and perform a song a week for an entire year while he vlogged about the process. The result was a large collection of personal, political, hysterical, and often poignant songs reflecting the world of a starving artist living in New York City.
JAIME LOZANO: SONGS BY AN IMMIGRANT
