The recording will take place at Sonoro Productions studios in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, United States of producer Thom Russo, 16 time Grammy award winner.
Thomas “Thom” Russo is an American record producer, engineer, mixer and songwriter with a long trajectory in the pop, rock and Latin Alternative genres where he has received recognition through the 16 Grammy awards he has been awarded throughout his career. He has worked with artists including Audioslave, Maná, Jay-Z, Juanes, Michael Jackson, Diego Torres, Johnny Cash and Alejandro Sanz to name a few.
By professionally recording his works with a multi award winning producer Al wants to leave some of his early Spanish musical creations on a disc of excellent quality that can show his artistic qualities and it can become the first step for future musical and artistic development.
