By Lynn Ponder: Jose Angel “Gocho” Torres comes from Puerto Rico and is part of a family of musicians who has been blessed with immense talent with musical genius encrypted into his DNA. Gocho initiated his career as a reggaeton producer and songwriter. He has written HIT songs, produce the record MVP and worked with some of the biggest names like Shakira, Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Zion y Lennox but one year ago went after his dream and embarked on a solo career.
Gocho launched his first album’s single “Dándole” with the collaboration of Jowell y Randy becoming an instant favorite, appealing to people of all ages, played in clubs all over the world and nominated at Premios Lo Nuestro awards by Univision as the 25 songs most heard in 2011. He has also been nominated for Best Album Urbano and feels a winner just by sharing this nomination with mega stars like Pitbull, Wisin y Yandel, Alex y Fido y Don Omar.
Gocho feels a bit indebted to social media as it serves as his sounding board to find out what his fans expect from him, drives traffic to his work and gives him the opportunity to reach out to new fans. He is on Facebook in and out all day, but says that the evenings are when more people tune-in and engage. Gocho Tweets as himself, is personable and being Puerto Rican a natural charmer to his fans, so make sure to reach out that he will tweet with you! His site is the main hub to centralize all his music and of course works with one of the best Publicists of the business Mayna Nevarez, Nevarez Communications.
Mi Gente Gocho just launched his new single “Si Te Digo La Verdad” from his 2nd album Lapiz de Platino which can be purchased via iTunes. I LOVE this song [SiTeDigoLaVerdad ya se encuentra #30 en los temas mas sonados de Billboard Ademas #9 en el chart Tropical y #4 Urbano! ] WEPA!
And tonight after Premio Lo Nuestro award show he will be waiting to meet his fans at the After Party Showcase at OFF The Hookah!!!
