Brian Lopez > Junio 19 > Joe's Pub > 

With his latest effort, “Ultra”, Brian Lopez has begun the work of going inside himself to find out what he has to say to the world. Ultra is the product of Brian Lopez's rock n roll heart. Yes, there are the Spanish language songs, and as all the best foreign language songs do, these transcend language barriers and move the spirit with the force of their feeling. But there is more, much more to behold on Ultra, and this reveals Lopez to be very much a product of his times, speaking to his times.
