A spanish musician in New York is getting a new tool to help him get to the next level in his career.
For decades, the music industry has relied on foreign musicians to write music for the world’s top record labels.
But for some, a foreign talent isn’t just about being a vocalist.
They also have a songwriting edge.
“It’s an art, you know,” said Luis Gomez, a musician and producer who lives in Brooklyn.
“A good songwriter can make music that is more emotional than anything you can do.
It can be very difficult to find those songs, but it’s something that you can learn.”
As the global music industry expands, so does the need for talent in foreign languages, according to a new study by the New York City-based Center for the Study of the Global Economy.
The Center found that as much as 70 percent of the world is either at or near the top of the talent ladder.
“This is a new world,” Gomez said.
“This is the beginning of an era.”
For most of the last decade, the global market for musical talent was dominated by foreign artists.
In 2011, China led the way, importing nearly one in every three of the top 100 recorded artists in the world.
Now, according the Center’s study, the market for musicians is dominated by people from Latin America and Africa.
As artists struggle to find a niche, a few Latin American artists have been able to capitalize on their talent.
But many others have struggled to break into the mainstream.
While Gomez is trying to make a name for himself in Latin America, he is also taking on a role that many Latin American musicians have struggled with for years: getting work in the United States.
The musician is working on a new songwriting project with his producer partner, Juan Carlos.
The song is called “La Raza,” and it’s being produced by the producer’s brother, Pedro.
Juan Carlos, who grew up in Brazil, is working with Gomez to help the singer find work.
The collaboration is part of the project called La Raza, which Gomez hopes will inspire artists to work abroad.
Javier Moreno, the lead songwriter for La Razada, says his project is inspired by the success of Latin American pop artists like Miranda Lambert and the Chainsmokers.
“There are a lot of artists that have a lot more of an international audience, but they are often not able to get the opportunity to work outside their country,” Moreno said.
For Gomez, the hope is to be able to work on a song for a label and get it signed to the top record label in Latin American music.
Gomez says the songs he’s writing for La Razada will be very different from the ones he wrote for the big record labels because he’s not using them as a platform to showcase his music.
He’s not just writing songs to promote his new project, Gomez said, “I’m writing songs that will help a lot people in the future.”
