Step into the Mind of La E

I’m opening a door to my mind and you’re welcomed to share my world.

Thanks for visiting ❤

WARNING: I am unfiltered, bilingue, old-fashioned yet unconventional & very opinionated.

I know that the path I have chosen to lead is not an easy one. I have encountered many obstacles and at times fallen hard. These challenges have taught me how to hold my own. When I find myself at these crossroads, speed bumps and potholes, I find the way to overcome them. If I fall, I get back up and continue on my way. Like many I have a story to tell. Its never-ending. Join me in my journey, live each moment with me. Share my struggles and my successes.

For those of you who don’t know me: I am a poet, an artist, vocalist, scientist, fashion designer, sound engineer and single mom. The possibilities are endless so why limit yourself when you are capable of so much?

A little more about me: I’ve been singing since I was four years old. Encouraged by my mother to take the microphone and share my gift with the world, broken in by my sister Maria who helped me discover the talent I had hiding within and vocally trained by Jeannie Deva to reach my full potential. At first singing was just a hobby, something I did in school and county choirs. At 13 years old I realized that singing was more than “a thing to do”, it was a way to express myself and feel good. Praising God in song became a spiritual essentiality. I began to write songs and compose them on a synthesizer my father had bought me for Christmas. Shortly afterwards, I began singing in church, live revivals, concerts, events such as fashion shows and competitions. Once I turned 18, I became obsessed with hardcore hiphop and reggaeton urbano so I began to rap. The lyrics flowed naturally. I would have freestyle battles with friends on the block or just random dudes that would hear me. Even my bro-in-law would get amped up and try to battle me. My other bro-in-law had a set of Technics so when he or my sister Teresa weren’t home I would get down on the turntables and write to some of the instrumentals he had in the racks. Shhh… don’t tell him though! About a year later, my sister Marina encouraged me to begin recording so I did just that and my first mixtape I’ll Be Alright was made. Very few copies were made due to the fact that I produced it myself and my resources were limited. Years after, I decided to make the drastic decision to move to Los Angeles and officially pursue my dream to make singing and music a career. I opened up shows for artists like Alexis & Fido, sang on international television for shows like Tengo Talento Mucho Talento, festivals and parades such as COFECA’s Annual Central American Day Parade and the holiday parade in Hollywood, to nightclubs & theatres throughout Los Angeles, and collaborated with many artists from all across the globe. In 2012, I was blessed with my little angel so I decided to put live performances on hold. I did, however do a couple of appearances after my son’s birth but made the choice to take my life in a different direction. I am currently working on several projects and collaborations with various producers worldwide. You can hear my latest & some oldies but goodies on Spotify or Soundcloud.

As for fashion, I’ve always had a passion for it as well. Growing up in a home with a lot of girls, and being the youngest one, I saw so many styles trend and fade away. I remember as a child taking trips to Manhattan to go fabric shopping with my mom. You see, my mother was a fashion major from the University of San Miguel. Back in El Salvador, in my mom’s youth, her dream was to be a fashion designer. I remember being a little munchkin sitting beside my mom and her turquoise Singer vintage sewing machine, watching her make me a dress. I was about 5 years old when I hand-sewed my first little outfit for my barbie. My sisters and I used to have fashion shows for our barbies. Maria always made the nicest gowns. We would tear our justanes (slips) and make dresses for our dolls, Mom would get so mad. I would always draw women in my notebooks and draw different styles that would look good on different body types. As I grew up, I became such a fashionista even my older sisters would ask me for fashion advice. At age 14, I began taking sewing classes in school and making alterations at home. I began to get more practice with the alterations I was making, I moved onto making clothes for my little dolls… my nieces. At age 16, I was designing my own clothes and creating my own look. For a couple of years I discontinued the craft but in 2008 I picked up a sketch pad and began designing different styles for women with curves. That was the birth of my clothing line which is currently in the works and soon to be available to all of you so stay posted & subscribe for updates.

When I took a break from performing, I enrolled at The Los Angeles Film School to study the Recording Arts and Production to better understand my craft and learn the technicalities behind what I do. I am now an alumni of LAFS & a sound engineer. I have composed scores for indie films and video games as well as vocal & sound editing plus some. Some independent films include: Twist of Fate, Liza, I Was Sent. I am also a recording engineer, mixing engineer & have mastered albums for artists. Some artists I have had the pleasure of working with are Romero, Gunz Lozano, Galeano, Mr. Notty Boy, Socioo, & more.
