About Carlo Kano
Originally from Roswell, NM, now residing in Modesto, CA, Carlos Kano started like most artists, listening to music when he was young, but his passion grew for Dance music at the age of 13, so much it fed his soul. Creating dance music became his newest passion for a couple simple reasons – seeing people dance and have fun to positive uplifting beats.
His boss recognized Kano as a person who wants to make people feel good. Making people feel good is how Kano became successful in the medical industry working as a Nurse, as a Comedian, and a Music Artist.
“Putting a smile on someone’s face makes my heart smile,” says Kano
Kano’s popularity grew when he coined the catch phrase “I’m Freaking Thirsty” during a stand up comedy show. This unintentional phrase grew throughout the local scene and has become Kano’s mark in both the Comedy and Music scene.
Today, Kano is looking to expand his career in music by making a mark with his latest tracks “Unleash the Beast” and “Spread the Love”. Both songs show the opposite spectrum of both personalities of Carlos Kano’s unique style.
What is Carlos Kano all about?
Carlos: Carlos Kano is a spiritual energy that transfers it to a physical energy. I love to make people feel good and promote fun. Life can be hectic and busy therefore the perfect recipe counter is to feel good and have fun. Anything that promotes good vibes and good energy is what Carlos Kano seeks and promotes.
When did you start creating music?
Carlos: If we want to be technical I would say since I was 5 years old because my parents bought me one single old school turntable and I would play it and make up my own stuff by singing my own lyrics and hitting my wooden drawers with my hands as if they were congas.
Creating music is something that is always on my mind! Love Love Love it.
What inspires you to create music?
Carlos: A couple of things: I love to think about an idea in my mind during a long jog and then upon being done with my jog I’ve got an entire song concept created. I will go straight to the drawing board and get the song done as soon as possible.
Second I love sharing music with people and getting good feedback such as people dancing to it, saying they love it, it made their done, made them smile, have it on repeat on their ipod, or use it for their jogs and workouts.
Tell us about “Unleash the Beast”!
Carlos: Unleash the Beast was a token of appreciation to Monster Energy Drink. So many times in my life Monster Energy Drinks have saved me when my energy was depleted. There have been so many times I had a project deadline with zero energy left yet a Monster Drink saved the day.
I’ve been in a marathon event with only 3 miles to go yet energy level just completely gone and POW Monster Energy to save the day.
Monster Drinks to me are like spinach was to Popeye. I decided to make an up lifting energetic beat to this song as that’s exactly what the Monster Energy Drinks to my me. Ohhhhh do I love them; I need one now!
