Q&A with Lynx on "Dosis de Mí"

In the past year, bachata artist Lynx has made his mark on everyone he meets.  From his smooth lyrics, and ability to tell a story that resonates with his audience, to his cool and infectious demeanor in interviews and when interacting with fans, the bachatero has captured the hearts of many.  Today, Lynx releases his debut album "Dosis de Mí" which gives people an even closer look into the rising star's infinite potential to be a game changer in the genre.  The album has 8 original songs crafted by Lynx himself (with the exception of "Como Antes" which was composed by his friend and colleague Nataniel).  In the album, he experiments with other genres including pop rock, merengue and even bolero.  

Lynx has proven that he is not afraid to take bachata to places it has never been.  His debut single, "Máscara", mixed elements of opera with bachata.  Lynx's most recent single off of the album, "Somos Uno" was a personal tribute to people with special needs, calling or love and equality; Lynx dedicated this song to his youngest brother Leonardo who is both autistic and blind.  Finally, in the single "Pena de Muerte" tells the story of a man on death row who is battling inner demons as he pleads for God's salvation.  

The album is sure to impress all who hear it, and after working on every minor detail for days on end, Lynx is more than excited to be able to share this little piece of himself with all who have been waiting, and all who have yet to discover his talent.  

What is it about this album that truly makes it a "Dosis de Mí"?
LYNX:  “Since the age of 13, I have grown as a songwriter and I wanted to introduce my distinctive style to the world. I believe that the art of lyricism has been lost and I want to help bring it back and make the lyrics on a song actually matter. This album touches on my personal life ("Somos Uno") and I was able to use personal memories to help me express myself better in some of my love songs. I express myself differently than others and I wanted to showcase it through "Dosis de Mí". I want my fans to know that this album contains 100% genuine raw emotions that took every bit of me to create.”

Talk to me about the album cover.  Where did you get this idea from and why is it fitting for "Dosis de Mí"?
LYNX:  “I am a proud New Yorker, it is the city that molded me into the person that you see today. The album cover shows me overlooking the New York City skyline, admiring the view as it reminds me that this city will always be a part of me.”

What is your favorite song on the album and why?
LYNX:  “My favorite song on the album is "Pena de Muerte" and it introduces the audience to an element that I created called "dark bachata". "Pena de Muerte" is my favorite song on the album because of its unique and refreshing storyline. I wanted to show fans of the genre a whole new world, putting myself in the shoes of a very broken character who has accepted death but still seeks salvation for his soul. In-Character story-lines and dark bachatas are part of my repertoire as a songwriter and I am proud to introduce them through "Pena de Muerte". Aside from the common love topics, I wanted to share a part of me that needed to be introduced in this genre and that was the fearless attitude I have as an artist/songwriter.”

If you could add another artist's touch to one of the songs on the album, what song would it be? Who would the artist be? and why?
LYNX:  “Adding Mario Domm to the song "Renacer" would have been an amazing experience and would have been a heck of a song to listen to. Mario has a very powerful way of making you feel what he is singing about, putting him in this song with me would create a feeling like no other. I get excited just talking about it haha”

What has been the biggest learning experience for you in the process of putting this album together?
LYNX:  “The biggest learning experience for me was learning how to pay more attention to the details within my art. Some of us can admire the Mona Lisa painting but never notice the little details that helped make the painting an historic image. I've lost count on the amount of nights that I've spent going over the rough drafts, several mixes, vocals, lyrics and the recordings of each instrument. I can be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to creating my art but I totally understand that there will never be a perfect artist. You can go to a local shop and find an identical but fake Mona Lisa painting but the truth is, my goal is for my art to be real Mona Lisa painting that you will find at the Louvre museum. In other words, quality is very important to me.”
