Los Angeles, CA (April 7, 2015) – Crooner J’Martin releases worldwide one of the most anticipated albums within the bachata genre! ‘Mi Tiempo’ (My Time) has generated great expectations amongst his fans and within the music industry in general. The album has already positioned itself for success with three chart topping radio singles, “Ni Una Lagrima Más”, “Cada Vez Que Te Vas”, & “Yo Soy El Loco Aquel”) that rotated on radio stations in the US, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Central and South America, and the Latin circuit in Europe. The album is a collection of 13 songs and will available on all digital platforms starting today.
J’Martin introduces us to an innovative album, with arrangements that respect the root and essence of traditional bachata, but one that is not afraid to explore other genres and incorporate instruments, that in theory, do not belong to the genre such as the piano, electric guitar, the programming of electronic keyboards, bandoneón, and the accordion. J’Martin’s, compositions are romantic; they speak of love and hate, dreams and stories of great passion and tenderness. His fans already have him on their radar and know his style and his songs continue navigating through the countries that have received him with open arms and have solidified him as one of the most prestigious and respected bachata artists in the industry.
For ‘Mi Tiempo’, J’Martin summoned a high-ranking group of collaborators, making it one of the best bachata albums to come out in the last few years. It’s evident when you see some of the names that worked on the project such as: Steven Cruz a renowned composer, arranger, and session guitarist who has participated on albums and produced songs for Toby Love, Leslie Grace, Thalia, Maná, Prince Royce, Pitbull, The Republika and Andy Andy, to name a few. Two time Latin Grammy nominated Pedro “SP” Polanco, who worked with Leslie Grace, Ivy Queen, Hector “El Torito” Acosta, and Toby Love, also collaborated on the record. Another major contributor was Robinson Hernández, who is J’Martin’s band director and has produced hit singles for Aventura and Prince Royce.
Pavel de Jesus (Proyecto Uno and Ilegales) another renowned producer along with Ray “Chino” Diaz, one of the most respected session musicians having recorded with artists ranging from Mariah Carey to Juan Luis Guerra, were also part of ‘Mi Tiempo’. Argentinian composer, producer and musician, José Luis Pagan, who has been instrumental in making international hits for Chayanne, Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Thalia, Alejandra Guzman, was a important collaborator on this project. In addition, composer and arranger Chris Hierro and Grammy nominated Toby Sandoval who has worked with Laura Pausini, Paulina Rubio and Black Eyed Peas, among others were both part of the stellar production and writing team of ‘Mi Tiempo’.
Thus his very own compositions, songs by other renowned writers, along with his team of producers and engineers, make ‘Mi Tiempo’ an all-encompassing album with incredible songs and a remarkable production. All together, J’Martin has created a very interesting album which his team is confident will impact his fans but the music industry overall!
