What’s your official stage name and why did you choose it?

My stage name is Cisco Guerrero, my real name is Claudio Caselli. I chose Cisco because it’s the name of an Italian singer of a folk band, not really the same genre I play, but I loved it when I was young. And I wanted to keep the same first word of my real name, C. “Guerrero” because it sounds good and when I think of a Latin surname, comes to mind Guerrero!

When did you decide to pursue music as a career?

I have been a professional for many years. I started very young with a band and an album for a great major, but the project couldn’t work so it was short-lived. Since that time, I haven’t done any other job except as a musician, performer, teacher, songwriter. Cisco Guerrero and “Puerto Grande” were born by chance less than a year ago.

What’s your creative process like?

I like jamming with guitar on a random chord progression until I find a good melody. Then I develop the full song with lyrics that talks about personal experiences. But “Puerto Grande” was born as an instrumental piece about 6 years ago with the title taken by the town in an Italian movie. Many times, after I tried to write lyrics making up a story about this imaginary place. Lastly, I contacted a singer on a freelance web site to sing it, and that’s it.



What feelings, subjects or concepts inspire you as an artist?

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Anyone has to release music without filters. With too many songs released every day it’s impossible to discover very talented artists.


What is this new release about?

“Puerto Grande” is my first single. It’s a Latin pop song with reggaeton rhythm. “Puerto grande” is an imaginary town in South America, where a street artist sings his tunes to the people. One day he meets a girl and falls in love with her, dedicating his best love song. Metaphorically, “Puerto Grande” is the place where you always want to be.


Who and how many people worked on it?

I wrote, arranged and recorded the music by myself. Singers are from Mexico, Argentina, Spain. For mixing and mastering I rely on other studios or freelancers. About promotion I signed for Glerx Records (with offices in Ecuador and New York) and I work with its team.


What are you working on next? Any future plans or projects in the pipeline that we should look out for?

I’m working on 9-10 new songs. 6 are finished, only mixing and mastering to be ready for release. I hope to release a new single in the next few months, and the EP/Album before the end of this year.


If you had one message to give to your fans, what would it be?

Follow me and comment on my social networks and share my music. I would want to play for you very soon!

Young and vibrant man I am, God fearing, warm at heart. Music is bae food is life. If you've seen this then you know me!!!
