Venezuelan-Canadian artist JACE Carrillo released his single, Desapareces” – October 7 2022.
Valencia, Venezuelan born and Montreal based singer-songwriter- producer artist JACE Carrillo is a celebrated R&B singer-songwriter across Latin America who has recently been making a name for himself. He got into a Gospel choir as a teenager, and his passion for music led him into discovering different music genres than the usual Latin influences. JACE fell in love with R&B and has since been inspired by different artists such as Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Luis Fonsi, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Khalid, Reik, and others. In 2017, he participated in auditions for The Voice Canada (La Voix – Québec), outperforming more than 4 thousand singers. Since then, JACE has performed at numerous events and festivals around Montreal. The Latin R&B singer started releasing some singles during 2019, 2020, until sharing his debut album “JACE” on March 12, 2021. The album contains 14-tracks, featuring guest appearances from DJ Oscar Olivo, Odreii, and What if Elephants. This album was co-produced with Señor Steve, Jacob Cardinal (Rosalia, Charlie Puth, etc), Alyko (Panama), and Latin- Canadian producer Dany El Pana. In November 2021, JACE organized and sold out his first Live Concert with more than 200 people and streamed worldwide to his fans. In April 2022, he reached the semi-finals of the 15th edition of the World Music Showcase “Syli d’Or” as part of the Nuits d’Afrique 2022 festivals (Quebec). On June 10th, he performed with his band at the Canadian Music Week Festival in Toronto. Later that month he won the Venezuelan Pepsi Music Awards 2022 for Best Electronic Music Video with his song “The Rhythm of Life” as part of his first album “JACE”. With more than 500K streams on Youtube and over 200K streams on Spotify, JACE has been placed in some important editorial playlists for Latin artists on Spotify such as “US Radar”, “New Music Friday Latin”, “New Urbano”, “Latin Pop Rising” and “Fresh Finds: Latin”.
With nearly one million combined streams, the Montrealer and former La Voix (The Voice) participant won his first award in the 2022 Venezuelan Pepsi Music Awards for Best Electronic Music Video for his song “The Rhythm of Life” from his debut album “JACE”. The 2022 “Syli d’Or” World Music Showcase semi-finalist has collaborated with world renowned producers and musicians, including Luca The Producer, Señor Steve, Jacob Lacroix-Cardinal, Alyko (Panama), and Dany El Pana. With a sound that blends Latin music with traditionally American sounds, JACE is gearing up to release his highly anticipated sophomore album. The talented singer-songwriter often draws comparisons to Enrique Iglesias and Luis Fonsi and has just released his 2000’s R&B/Pop influenced single “Desapareces“, (“Disappearing” in English) on October 7 2022.
Written after challenging himself to celebrated artist and One Republic band Member Ryan Tedders’ songwriting course, “Desapareces” is the first song JACE wrote upon completing the course. “Desapareces” was co-produced with Luca The Producer (Corneille, Ariane Moffatt, Preston Pablo, Ludovick Bourgeois, Lilianne de Francesco, etc.), mixed by Jacob Lacroix-Cardinal (Charlie Puth, Rosalia, A$AP Ferg), and mastered by twelve time Latin Grammy winner, Felipe Tichauer from RedTraxx Mastering (Camilo, Camila Cabello, Christina Aguilera, Timbaland).
“Desapareces” is a lyrically imagined song about a character falling in love with someone in a dream yet being unable to achieve the same while awake. The track is from JACE’s upcoming album “Phenomena”, which he describes as a musical and lyrical journey of interpersonal relationships explained through cosmos phenomena. Both poetic and romantic, “Desapareces” is reminiscent of Pop music from the early 2000’s, and seamlessly blends live instruments with electronic elements. From its ethereal opening, “Desapareces” features a strong bass line with Lofi-Pop along with JACE’s strong R&B and Pop blended vocals. With its strong, catchy chorus that is easily danceable, “Desapareces” bridges Anglo-Pop with the Latin world, in a uniquely different way than most of the popular Latin-Reggaeton and Latin-Rap styles we see today. Demonstrating that music transcends language, JACE’s brand-new song serves as the perfect national introduction to the already well-known artist.
Noting that the song was written in just a few days, JACE’s focus has been on creating a comprehensive album, similar to a Netflix series where each song ties together yet individually tells a story. With his own take on modern R&B and Pop music, JACE’s collaboration for this song with Luca The Producer and Jacob Lacroix-Cardinal have helped him hone his overall sound and style to one that he grew up loving. Citing Justin Timberlake’s early 2000 sound, Charlie Puth, and numerous other Pop/R&B artists as inspiration for his music, JACE is achieving his dream of creating his own style of music that inspired him.
