Hoy en Tus Ojos
ARMANDO RENE SONGWRITER Over a period of more than fifteen years, Armando Rene, native of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, has written an immense variety of musical productions that range from Rock, Funk, Reggae, Ballads and Pop. He discovered his writing talent at the age of 26 when he heard his poems transformed into songs with the help of his first guitar instructor Javier Rojas in the summer of 1990, Cancun, Mexico. As a bilingual songwriter, lyrics and melodies stand out for their passion and human sentiment, with the main themes being love and intimate relations. His lyrics intrigue, relate and give solutions to social, futuristic and fraternal matters. All songs promote the positive aspects of life while maintaining a unique level of sincere metaphoric interest, elusive to vanity and over production. With the collaboration of talented international musicians, songs are born from simple stories, poems and inspired thoughts. Projects grow until they become self-produced compilations of excellent taste with topics of global interest.
