With influences as vast and wide as the San Luis Valley from where he originates, Antonio Lopez is an artist to watch on the Colorado music scene. Nashville based recording artist Tyler James describes Antonio’s music as “raw and beautiful…two traits any young songwriter should strive for. Garnering comparison to artists such as Amos Lee and Ryan Adams with his earthy-modern-folk, Antonio is currently working on his sophomore project Cloud 9000. The Project consists of three EP's, each being recorded in a different locale with a different producer and set of musicians; Alamosa, CO where he grew up, Minneapolis, MN where he recorded his debut album, and on the Front Range where he now resides. The second installment in the series, Cloud 9000 Vol. 2: The Alamosa EP, is slated for a spring 2015 release. Antonio Lopez's emerging career is starting to take flight. His tune Simple Life is the theme song for the Morning show on KRZA radio and he has collaborated with artists such as folk luminary Don Conoscenti and Daniel Valdez (Santana, Linda Ronstadt).
