Oswald: What country and city were you born in?

LBC: I was born in Mexico City, I am 24 years old.

Oswald: Are any of these professions your favorite?

LBC: Music without a doubt.

Oswald: We realized that “The Camera Loves” you, and your beauty and exotic image make it difficult for you not to be a model, but, speaking of your other two jobs, who motivated you to go down those paths?

LBC: I was always surrounded by friends dedicated to music and the artistic medium in general. Their passion and talent inspired and motivated me to do it even though I knew it wouldn’t be easy. One day, I decided to talk to one of my friends because I also wanted to venture into that world, but I didn’t know where to start or what steps to follow.

The rest is history.

Oswald: Of all the places you’ve performed so far, is any your favorite?

LBC: Pa’l norte was an unforgettable experience and also traveling to Ecuador, since traveling alone, meeting more DJ artists (line up of all women), playing my songs in another country and seeing people happy was something I would return to to repeat a thousand times.

Oswald: A year has barely ended, what is your balance for 2023?

LBC: It was a year of many changes, experiences and also ups and downs. One of the best things and experiences I had is that I played for the first time at one of the largest festivals in Latin America, “Pa’l Norte” and I also left the country to Ecuador to a festival, traveling alone for the first time, which for me was everything. a challenge.
I also traveled throughout almost the entire Republic of Mexico playing in the best venues and I started with my taste for musical production, since I want to make my own songs, apart from the fact that it generates much more knowledge and learning in music and it gets me out of my way. maximum comfort zone. I released my first songs as a DJ with Mexican artists that I admire for their effort and dedication.
On the other hand, I walked at Fashion Week Mexico 2023, through my agency, Crom Agency, which has always supported me and I once told my manager, Axel Escalante, that I would love to be there, it was something that was in my bucket list forever. Being in front of the public is something that sometimes costs me a lot of work, but I always try to step on those fears, trust in myself, that everything is fine and know that sometimes it is just that little voice in our mind that doesn’t want you to achieve it. , but it’s imaginary.

Oswald: What project will you be working on in 2024?

LBC: This 2024 I will release my first songs alone and as a producer, with different sounds and transmitting all my essence. I will also release songs with artists from other countries who have been my inspiration for many years, you will find out later this year. I will be playing in my country, Mexico, and open to playing abroad.

Oswald: If you were granted three wishes. Which would they be?

LBC: I have always thought a lot about this question and what I know I would not ask for are those temporary and material pleasures that we believe bring happiness like money.
The first would undoubtedly be to help our planet in all areas.
The second would be that people who have a genuine dream of making music had all the resources necessary to do so.
The third would be for my pets to last a lifetime.

Oswald: What message can you give to those who are reading this interview?

LBC: Having patience and self-confidence is the key to everything. Success is not measured by the amount of work you have done in your life, but by the positive impact you generate and the satisfaction you gain in the process. On the other hand, it is normal to be afraid, but don’t let that fear stop you from doing what you want, because if you don’t do it, no one else will do it for you. It’s okay if you fail or maybe it’s not what you like, but try it and see.
I send you a big hug, I’m delighted!
