What’s your official stage name and what is the reason behind it? 

People know me on stage and in the music scene as “Paquito”, which is the nickname for small Francisco. My dad’s name is Francisco too (his nickname is Paco), so I was Paquito (lil Paco).


Follow Hollywood Sirena on: Spotify and Instagram.


When did you decide to pursue music as a career?

I knew that music and drums was the lifestyle I wanted to pursue when I was 17 years old, when I booked my first Tour.


How would you describe the music you typically create?

Energetic, music that moves your heart and soul. Powerful and whenever I’m able the drums are really protagonic.


Who (living or dead) inspires you as an artist and why?

I’m really inspired by bands like blink-182, The 1975, Green Day, Jamiroquai, Angels & Airwaves.


Which instrument is your favorite to play besides the drums and why?

Piano and singing. Those are my other tools for expression.


What feelings or reactions do you hope to arouse in people who listen to your music? Are you surprised by the reactions you get?

I hope people get motivated to pursue a passion or a dream when they listen to my message in the music. As some artists made me do crucial changes in my life, I would love to inspire more humans to do the same.

Can you tell us about your band, The Citie, and why you’ve decided to undertake another project with the name “Hollywood Sirena”?

The Citie is an Indie-Alternative band who gave me a home in LA. I’ve been producing new music and performing with them since 2019. I became a full time member in 2020. I recorded and produced with them the album “1:23”, the single “Golpes en el Corazon” , and all the upcoming songs that are set to be released throughout 2025.

I decided to start Hollywood Sirena because I owed it to myself. When I started playing music, I started writing my own music but never dared to release something as solo. Maybe because I started as a drummer and eventually started singing.


Do you have any hobbies or interests outside of music?

I love working out and venturing in business. I also love playing video games whenever I have the time to do so.


What has been the high point of your career so far?

I think my current moment is the high point of my career. With The Citie we are about to hop on our first big promo Tour, and the conception of Hollywood Sirena getting a record deal means so much to me and gives me faith. I’ve had amazing tours and experiences before, but everything leads to a better destination every day.


What’s your process for dealing with performance anxiety?

Working out, meditation, rudiments and stretching. Sometimes a Tequila shot(s) also helps.


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

The boring part of business and marketing, the whole legal aspects of it are tiring. It would be great if I could just think about making music haha.
