When I was working on this Latin Spotlight section, I asked a few of my friends who like Latin music who their favorite Latin Christian artists were. Without hesitation, Ken Marrero of Goodspeed Periodicals, who is of hispanic heritage, named former Squint recording artists Burlap to Cashmere.
When the group played its first showcase in Nashville in 1998, Burlap to Cashmere won many over with their unique, fresh sound, distinctly Latin. The group recorded on the Squint label before lead singer Steven Delopoulos left the band and signed a solo deal with Interscope. The band has three remaining original members, who are also signed to Interscope. Johnny P., who has historically been the lead guitarist, is now the lead singer as well. Both Steven and the “new” Burlap hope to release albums on Interscope in 2001.
Will they keep their Latin groove? Only time…and the new project… will tell.
