Carlos’s musical journey began in Colombia. Being brought up in a very artistic family he learned how to play the guitar at a young age and years later he joined a Classic Rock and Beatles tribute band. This journey kicked into high gear after he left a career in Business to pursue Music. While studying Music Composition, Guitar, and Voice performance at a college in Florida, Carlos began performing full-time and started his craft on songwriting. Soon after, he began teaching guitar to students of all ages.
Carlos came to Los Angeles in 2009 to take his career to the next level. He started performing solo acoustic and as part of the band Freefall Rescue, as well as collaborating with various other artists throughout Southern California. Working solo gigs and being part of a band helped prepare Carlos for the pivotal moment “Reflections of an Orange Tree” represents.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Carlos teamed up with Los Angeles-based producer Rick Parker, who has worked with acts ranging from Jewel to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to record his first solo album titled “Reflections of an Orange Tree”.
Carlos currently continues to teach guitar full time to students of all ages and levels as well as perform acoustic shows for private events and with his full bands Carlos Naranjo and Freefall Rescue.
