The #1 blog for Floco Torres news!
Floco recently collaborated with Make It Work Molly on a piece for her blog: "Macon, Makers, & the music future -Brought From The Past". All photos were done by Floco's favorite Maryann Bates. Check out an excerpt from the piece as well as a few shots below. Click the photo to read the whole thing.
"We must also watch and read local. Pick up the 11th Hour and Macon Magazine which are established, but also keep reading the new writers here. Read and listen to what Field Note Stenographers is putting out. Support GPB Macon. Pay attention to our local news stations. All of these people are working so hard to tell the good stories, and, frankly, like artists and small business owners- the financial rewards aren’t always there. All of these people do this out of love."
New Video from Floco Torres for his song "Open-Ended" off of the V I N S A N I T Y ep. "Open-Ended" was written as more of an essay to Floco's fans as well as America in one of the more racially charged times of recent years. Video shot by Shawty Slim.
UPDATE: New video! "Underground King". Video by Shawty Slim.
Floco has been fairly quiet in the start of 2016 but things are slowly picking up. After playing a set in Charlotte at the Carolina Artist Connection on January 5th, The Indoor Kids out of Greenville SC released their first single "Desperate" with a new verse from Floco. Today, a new article about Wes Gilliam (The Indoor Kids bass player) & Floco's effort off the stage was published in the Free Times in Columbia SC. Check out an excerpt below & read the full article by Vincent Harris here.
"On the surface, the no-frills, early-Bad-Religion pop-punk of Greenville’s The Indoor Kids and the tough, introspective rap of Macon, Georgia’s Floco Torres might seem a poor fit. But the two have more in common than you might think, both musically and philosophically. Torres actually guested on The Indoor Kids’ 2015 single “Desperate,” kicking off a slow-burn rap at the song’s mid-point that becomes more frenzied as the hard-charging tune builds to its climax".
"But the connection is deeper than that. Torres and The Indoor Kids’ bassist, Wes Gilliam, have spent much of the last few years working behind the scenes in their respective towns — organizing, booking and promoting concerts, festivals and other events".
