Born in France October 29, 1979. Jodorowsky is the son of the renowned Chilean avant-garde film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, best known for his films The Holy Mountain, Santa Sangre, El Topo and more. Jodorowsky's first guitar lessons were given to him by The Beatles guitarist George Harrison. When he was sixteen he joined the punk band The Hellboys.
In 2011 he released his solo album Amador and won the UFI award for "Best International Artist Of The Year" and "Best Live Show". Then he met Devendra Banhart, and together, they recorded the song "You are the one" and "Dime Cuándo".
In 2012 he produced the first platinum solo album of León Larregui (lead singer of Mexican band "Zoé"); "Solstis".
In 2015 Adán Jodorowsky directed a video for his song "Would You Be Mine" with the porn actress Stoya,
a sex fueled video that generated a strong positive reaction from the press. In 2016 he a new album with French rocker Xavier Polycarpe, lead singer of Parisian band; "Gush".
The album and project titled: "Adan y Xavi & Los Imanes", toured throughout the UK, France, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the US. Adán produced León Larreguí's second album: "Voluma", which in a short time was certified Gold and proved Adan's success as a producer. This 2017 marks the return of Adan as Adan Jodorowsky, leaving behind the Adanowsky moniquer and embracing his last name to the fullest.
Rudy De Anda
Rudy De Anda is bursting out of the musical melting pot of the LBC. As frontman for the Long Beach psych-prog group Wild Pack of Canaries Rudy felt the creative pull to begin a solo project that is currently catching fire and hitting the festival circuit with plays at last year's Noise Pop, SXSW, and Music Tastes Good.
Delay, Cadaver of a Day is De Anda's full length follow-up and broke into the Top 100 in the CMJ charts, coming in at #94. "The albums have earned de Anda a rightful place in L.A.'s emerging alt-Latino movement, a growing collective of bands — including "big brothers" Chicano Batman, for whom de Anda has opened — that dabble in non-Latino scenes and support one another's efforts while charting individual paths so distinct it might be a stretch to call it a movement at all."
In 2013, when the band was treading on and off hiatus, De Anda started writing his own songs and was approached by one of his musical mentors, Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (Mars Volta, Jack White) to record. Lost in their effortless chemistry, the two friends setup sessions in Ikey's living room in-between his Nashville trips and his Jack White tour schedule.
Additionally, De Anda is part of a budding Los Angeles artist management group called Qvolé Collective representing and celebrating progressive Latino music from the US.
The band has shared the stage with established acts Warpaint, The Specials, Chicano Batman, Dr. Dog, and No Age to name a few.
Filled with inventive guitar hooks and rollicking rhythms, Delay recalls the far-out psych-rock excursions of Connan Mockasin, but roots them in a laid-back, surf-pop vibe that is pure Southern California.
- LA WEEKLY
“Rudy weaves throaty guitar harmony within swirling rhythmic currents. Vocals have sunshine to spare, but there is always the threat of silvery storm clouds looming.”
"Time to shed the mundane and embrace the transcendent with Long Beach’s Rudy De Anda, a musician dedicated to the transmission of something completely individual"
- LA Record
"This album is what would happen if Tame Impala went emo… Light but heavy, warm in the sun, but shivery in the shade. It’s undoubtedly psychedelic, but here’s no one scene or genre you can peg it to, which adds to the pleasantly disorienting effect."
"The new album is a psychedelic prog-pop odyssey, all dissonance and shoegaze in equal amounts tempered by the buoyancy of punk-rock spirit."
- BuzzBands LA
" From first listen, the album has a wonderful blend of pop-punk, prog-rock, and classic jams to keep the personality of the songs continually surprising and full of life."
“Delay, Cadaver of a Day is a celebration of life and a solid summer soundtrack.
