Raul Lozano is a singer/songwriter/recording artist reppin’ Brownsville, Texas. Named after his only grandpa, Raul Aguirre, his name ultimately celebrates both sides of his parent’s family. Born and raised in Brownsville, in the Rio Grande Valley with frequent visits to Matamoros, of the Tamaulipas municipality in Mexico, a strong sense of culture and education was instilled in him at a young age. Before Raul became a solo artist, he was the lead keyboardist and 2nd voice in Revo Live Band, with his cousins (3rd generation musicians from his dad’s side of the family). After his parents’ divorce, stability was hard to come by, and his family kept moving often until he started high school. Regardless of the inconsistency – music & performing with his dad and uncles made growing up a dream. At the early age of just 9, Raul was introduced to 80s Pop Music, Spanish Pop/Rock, Cumbia, & Hip-Hop. Now, his setup consists of a Mac Book Air, Logic Pro X, with an Apollo Twin audio-interface and a vast series of plugins. During Raul’s time performing with both his dad’s band, La Farra Hermanos Lozano & his cousins’ Revo Live Band, he got to do many private & public events, as well as radio & television interviews. Raul’s 1st appearance with Revo was in Odessa, Texas at the Súper Tejano Show opening for Kingz One (made up of ex-members of the Kumbia Kingz) and Rockteńo Group, Siggno.

Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Follow your heart and gut. Your ears and brain love to whisper lies to keep you from ever finishing or sharing your creation. Don’t listen to the self-doubt. Listen to what you’re dreaming of in your head in the moment of creation, and let it take you wherever it does.

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring big energy, strong vocals, and a strange and memorable melody.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start by creating the composition or story. Either the lyrics or beat to establish what I call our intent. Whichever comes out first is what dictates what I do next. After that, I simply do things that compliment what’s already being recorded/performed in terms of musical arrangement.

Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Last project I released was a 2 feature single that I produced and put together. It included two very awesome artists from California and Atlanta. This was my dream project so I handled pretty much all aspects of production except for the mixing and mastering.

Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Meeting people and helping them bring to life their dream.
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How much do you charge? I don’t answer. I deflect and I ask them about them. Get to know your customer. They found you for a reason. They’re looking. Make them feel sought out for as well. It’s an impression they’ll never forget.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's easy and anyone can do it.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I ask about experience. Their motivation to finish this project. How they plan to finalize the production for engineering, distribution. Splitting the song, registering the song etc.
