Renown singer-songwriter and producer Jean Rodriguez joins forces with talented musician and producer Danny Flores to bring forth innovative music project COASTCITY. The two teamed up while working on Jean Rodriguez’s 3rd studio album after realizing what they were creating was nothing shy of magic. Jean and Danny are artists first and foremost who have an impressive resume on both the stage and in the studio. They perform, produce, write, and conceptualize their own projects aside from creating the right sound for other artists they collaborate with including: Prince Royce, J Balvin, Zendaya, Chris Brown, CNCO, Bad Bunny, Luis Fonsi, and Tony Succar, among others.
Debut single “Noches y Mañanas” was co-written with Grammy, SESAC and ASCAP award winning songwriter Claudia Brant who has written songs for A-listers such as J-Lo, John Legend, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, Luis Fonsi, and Carlos Santana to name a few. The song which starts off in English and transitions into Spanish fuses Caribbean rhythms with Pop and alternative sounds reflecting COASTCITY’s upbringing, culture, and roots.
The video was shot in 48 hours along the iconic Malibu coastline and around downtown Los Angeles under the direction of Carlos Escobar, known for his work with Marc Anthony, who also directed the picturesque video “Sobrenatural,” part of Jean’s last project. The video captures a fan-artist encounter which turns into an obsession. In several shots, we see Jean reminiscing about the intense and short lived love affair with his fan who seems to see his face everywhere she turns. The fan is played by model and photographer Jessie Joe Monge, who has played the lead on other videos for artists such as Tommy Torres.
COASTCITY is a movement, it’s a vibe. It reflects the new generation of Latinos raised and influenced by American and European cultures who were born in other countries. Proud of their roots and tremendously passionate about their culture, for COASTCITY it’s the heart that is in the driver’s seat.
What is COASTCITY?
Coastal vibes with a city attitude! That’s probably the best way to describe the spirit of COASTCITY, the music duo formed by Jean Rodriguez and Danny Flores, two multi-talented musicians who decided to join forces, knowledge, and experience into a unique music project.
After working together on Jean’s third record, Rodriguez and Flores decided to start a joint music project as well as a production team. On their own, they have worked with renowned artists such as Marc Anthony,Prince Royce, Chris Brown, Juanes, TreySongz, Yandel, and many more.
Jean Rodriguez and Danny Flores put together in COASTCITY the best of two worlds: the cultural richness and flavor of Latin culture, and the seriousness and expertise of American entertainment industry. COASTCITY is not only a music project but also a production duo that probably will be responsible for several smash hits in the years to come.
