From the moment Origen hit the stage for the first time at a high school variety show, they have received an incredibly warm reception from audiences. Their captivating music, appealing melodies, and energetic performances, have created a buzz which has taken them from that high-school stage to showcases around the country and of course all over their home state of Florida. Inevitably, the latin rock band landed a record deal and released their self titled debut album ORIGEN in 2008.
Origen is led by the charismatic Mirs (Ecuador) on vocals, along with Ruben (Mexico) on bass guitar, Hector (Venezuela) on guitars, and Tonio (Venezuela) on drums. Coming from different backgrounds and cultures did not stop the four driven and ambitious members from getting together, to the contrary ever since they met they decided to turn their dreams into goals and write songs about their personal experiences.
Hence the release of Origen's ten track debut album, filled with a sizzling mix of hard-rocking catchy pop songs, mid tempo groovy sing-a-longs, and sensuous slow jams, that caught the Latin Rock scene by surprise. Media outlets nationwide have been quoted as saying that Origen is "a gateway drug into Rock En Espaņol". Other publications have said that Origen's performance "will have your beer sloshing from gleeful pogo moves reminiscent of old-school alternative music scenes."
Since the critically acclaimed release, Origen has gone from zero to sixty in no time. They have been featured on prestigious TV shows like "Encuentro con Daniel Viotto" on CNN and "Al Rojo Vivo" on Telemundo. The romantic power pop ballad "Te Quiero" was premiered on one of Miami's top Latin radio station, Romance 106.7 FM, which gained significant airplay.
Landing Artist of the Week, MySpace Latino more recently in June of 2008, Origen continues to ride a wave of success, that is quickly making them one of the next great Latin-American pop/rock acts of the millennium.
