This month is National Hispanic Heritage month and in celebration we here at playMYmusic.FM are featuring several Latin artists in the coming weeks. This week we are featuring Latin singer-songwriter, La Bien Querida. Ana Fernandez Villaverde whose stage name is La Bien Querida which in Spanish means the well-loved girl has been making music for a long time. She was born in Bilbao, Spain, and is a painter by trade. Ana Fernandez Villaverde didn't start making music until 2007 when she recorded a demo and gained recognition when she won Mondo Sonora magazine's indie music demo competition. Ana Fernandez Villaverde won the competition and has been busy ever since. She was signed to Elephant Records, an independent record company out of Madrid, Spain. She spent 2008 touring and performing live as well as writing songs. She made her first recorded debut in 2009 with her album, Romancero which were pop tunes mixed with hints of flamenco music. In 2011 Ana Fernandez Villaverde and her producer decided to go in a different direction musically. Her album Ceremonia was a mix of dark synth-pop, post-punk, and even disco music. Since then she has released several maxi-singles.
In September of 2019, she released her latest album, Brujeria and this past July released a new single, Un Gatito. Check out this diverse and talented singer-songwriter and support independent music worldwide! Happy listening! Ole!
