A perfect blend of styles from around the world.

ECLECTIC is the best way I could describe my music and my day to day life.
Oscar, who is of Guatemalan descent brought with him talent and love of music that spring from childhood of playing a variety of instruments since the age of 5. With inspiration from his heritage, Oscar put together a unique mix of heavy metal, clean guitar & mixed with a hint of Latin flavor. As the word gifted doesnt quite embrace his passion, Oscar gives his music a sound and depth not often heard in Rock music, creating a truly signature sound. MOTIVATION AND INSPIRATION Oscar feels his motivation and inspiration may be from his sub-conscience. What ever the inspiration may be, Oscar finds these qualities in everything from Art, Architecture, Life and other musicians. Ortega attributes most of his passion to his Father, a musician which has been playing for over 50 years and continues to learn and teach others. FUTURE GOALS Oscar Ortegas life goal, is to be able to express his thoughts and feelings thru his guitar and music, and to perform on stage worldwide. CURRENTLY He is currently working on his solo project, "Fruits of the Mourning" which includes guest appearances with other established musicians from the Treasure Valley. Oscar is also teaching guitar in the styles of Rock, Blues, Neoclassical, Shred and Flamenco.
