Ale self-released his debut album entitled Sureste
in 2016, via indie label River Flow Records. The album was produced and mixed by producer Gonzalo Esteybar
. Sureste gained positives reviews from music blogs worldwide, like AllAboutJazz.com, who called it an album fraught with heartache and reflection.
Ale released his follow-up album Blue Light
on June 19, 2017, also via River Flow Records. Enlisting local and international musicians, this new effort features a predominant bluesy guitar and rocking vocals from Torriggino, widening his range but staying true to his long-time influences. The theme of hope is evident on tracks like Grey Sky Blues
and The Color Life
while songs like Catherine
proclaims that joy in life that one can only reach after a long period of darkness.
As Ale sings on the album’s opening track, The Healer
, he eloquently states the subtle theme that music is our power, hope and ultimate salvation.
