The debut album Fold In The Wind presents a soothing and poetic collection in acoustic form. Emotional and intricate, the sounds blended with Villalobos's haunting melodies, often associated with Elliot Smith, Sufjan Stevens, and Beach House.
Rey Villalobos is a Los Angeles native, his family originates from two different sides of the globe - Cananea Sonora México and Francavilla al Mare on the Italian Adriatic Coast. Rey grew up a classically trained pianist, citing Chopin as his first and main musical influence.
Villalobos has been touring the U.S. and Europe and playing shows with: Sharon Van Etten, Villagers, White Rabbits, The Middle East, Damien Jurado, Little Joy, Seabear and Fanfarlo.
Fold in the Wind is set to release in late Spring 2011.
