- About me:
I began playing guitar at age 6, although I did not join a band officially until age 12. My father was my first guitar teacher who loved to play classical guitar as well as Flamenco style. I had been playing my first ESP guitar model M1 for a couple years at that time as George Lynch was a huge influence in my musical life. SectaS became a pretty big name in Mexico City by the time we all moved to Phoenix, AZ in late 1999. To me, the distinct sound of an ESP guitar is one of the main influences in SectaS' musical direction and my newest addition to my guitar collection is by far my favorite, the ESP model AS-1 silver burst which I have named "Alexis".
Throughout the years, SectaS has opened for national acts like Slayer, King Diamond, Queensrÿche, Y&T, Gilby Clark, Papa Roach and more. Sharing the stage with so many legends in Rock and Metal has been such a wonderful experience for me and the band. We feel very fortunate for all of the opportunities so many of our friends and fans have helped us to obtain throughout the years. 2014 has been a stellar year for SectaS opportunity wise with the addition of our friend and manager. We were featured in the Phoenix New Times a few times in 2014. Our music is featured on several websites and radio stations, including winning a 30k spin contest with 365 radio network. We have starred in a guest VJ (video jockey) capacity on Heavy Metal Television, as well as several radio interviews with various stations last year, and the opportunities keep growing all the time.
"Alexis" made her debut on stage with me at Annefest this year in Phoenix, and has been my first pick for live performances as well as recording as SectaS is working on our 4th album. Our sound is slightly different and is the best we have ever been. I cannot thank this company enough for believing in me and my band SectaS which I have put my heart and soul into for many years. I hope to keep expanding SectaS' fan base throughout the country and eventually the world with my beautiful ESP guitar leading the way. I am so deeply humbled and honored to be a part of the ESP family and look forward to cultivating a great relationship with this amazing guitar company. I hope to make ESP proud of SectaS and the choice of adding us to the artist roster. See you on the road!
