BIOGRAPHY

 

IT'S A VERY LONG STORY BUT IT GOES LIKE THIS ...

IT WAS A VERY VERY COLD WINTER NIGHT AND THE CLOUDS BARLEY COVER THE SILVER

MOON IN THE SKY ...HOLD IT... SORRY WRONG STORY.

 OK...

EVERYTHING STARTED IN MAY 2007 WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS THAT  KNEW  EACH OTHER FROM HIGH SCHOOL...THE ORIGINAL FORMATION OF THE BAND WAS (LEONARDO) IN L.GUITAR ,( MANUEL) IN KEYBOARDS ,AND (JOSE) IN DRUMS AND IN THAT TIME THE BAND DIDN'T HAVE A NAME. I REMEMBER THAT I WENT TO A BIRTHDAY PARTY IN A CLUB THAT I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER,AND SOMEBODY INTRODUCE TO ME TO SOME FRIENDS THAT HAD A BAND AND THEY WHERE LOOKING FOR A BASS PLAYER.THE REHEARSALS STARTED THE FOLLOWING WEEKEND.

1ST. FORMATION

LEONARDO : LEAD GUITAR

MANUEL : KEYBOARDS

JOSE : DRUMS

TOMAS : BASS GUITAR

 IN THAT TIME WE DIDN'T HAVE A SINGER, SOMETIMES IT'S FUNNY HOW HARD IT'S TO FIND MUSICIANS IN FLORIDA OR SINGERS MAYBE IT'S NOT LIKE THAT BUT IN OUR CASE WOW JUST IMAGINE WAS NOT EASE, OK OK BACK TO THE STORY.

WE WERE REHEARSING FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS,CREATING , I DON'T KNOW WHAT , BUT WE WHERE THERE.IN SOME MOMENT EVERYTHING STARTED TO CHANGE. WE GOT A FRIEND AND PUT HIM TO SING (JOHNNY) , I REMEMBER HIS FIRST DAY HAHAHA AND THEN SOMEBODY ELSE CAME AND JOIN THIS PROJECT.A VERY TALENTED GUITAR PLAYER AND A GOOD FRIEND (LUISO) ,AND THAT'S HOW WE GET TO THE SECOND FORMATION. 

2ND. FORMATION

JOHNNY ; VOCALS

LUISO : LEAD GUITAR

LEONARDO : RHYTHM GUITAR

MANUEL : KEYBOARDS

JOSE : DRUMS

TOMAS : BASS GUITAR

 AND AS ALWAYS SOMETHING HAD TO HAPPEN ALONG THE WAY AND SOMETIMES EVERYTHING GOES WRONG , MISUNDERSTANDINGS AND OTHER THINGS, LEFT THE BAND WITHOUT LEONARDO , MANUEL AND JOHNNY , I STILL TALK TO THEM AND WE REMEMBER THOSE DAYS,THE FUN , THE JOKES   EVERYTHING...AT THAT TIME THE BAND HAD A NAME (MAGDALA) WICH IS THE BIBLICAL CITY WHERE MARY MAGDALENE WHERE FROM ORIGINALLY, A FEW COUPLE OF MONTHS AFTER ,WE FOUND THAT THE NAME WAS TAKEN IN THE UK. SO WE CHANGED  IT . AROUND THE SAME TIME THAT WE WERE  WITH JOSE AND LUISO IN THE BAND.

07/07/2007 WE CAN SAY THAT'S A SPECIAL DATE.

IT'S WHEN MAGDALIAN WERE BORN ,MAGDALA PLUS THE NAME OF MY SON IAN SO THERE YOU GO MAGDALIAN.NICE! HA. EVEN IN THOSE DAYS WE HAVE NOTHING MORE THAN PROJECTS OF SONGS SOME OLD LYRICS THAT I WROTE AND SOME SOUNDS THAT I PUT TOGETHER WITH THE BASS. NOW GETTING  CLOSER TO DEC 07 ,I MANAGE WITH A FRIEND TO LOCATE A WOMAN WHOSE VOICE WAS SOMETHING OUT OF THIS WORLD (DEIRDRE) AND YOU  GOT THE 3RD FORMATION OF THE BAND. AND ALSO THE GRAPHIC DESIGNS START COMING UP OUT MY HEAD , THIS IS THE FIRST DESIGNED LOGO OF MAGDALIAN.

 

3RD. FORMATION 

DEIRDRE : VOCALS

LUISO : LEAD GUITAR

JOSE : DRUMS

TOMAS : BASS GUITAR

AROUND THOSE DAYS SOMETHING WAS TAKING SHAPE EVEN WHEN DEIRDRE USE TO TRAVEL A LOT FOR HER JOB, OUR STYLE WAS STARTING TO BORN. NOW IN FEB 2008 THINGS WERE ABOUT TO CHANGE AGAIN FOR US BECAUSE LUISO USE TO LIVE IN MIAMI AND IT WAS TO FAR FOR HIM.WE WERE LOOKING FOR A GUITAR PLAYER , KEYBOARD PLAYER , SINGER... WOW THE LIST WAS LONG BUT WE MANAGE WITH JOSE TO KEEP THE FAITH UP AND (CRISTIAN) CAME ALONG IF I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT HIM IS THAT I NEVER SAW SOMEBODY GROW UP IN MUSIC SO FAST AS HIM, HE BECAME A AWESOME KEYBOARD PLAYER ,AND OF COURSE SOMEBODY ELSE YES EL PETY HOW WE USE TO CALL HIM (GONZALO) . AFTER THINGS WERE IMPROVING A LOT AND WE SAW A VIDEO IN THE YOUTUBE PAGE AND JOSE TOLD ME LETS CALL HIM... I HIRED, BY PHONE, ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS AND AN EXCELLENT GUITAR PLAYER (FABIAN), INCREDIBLE!... ITS FUNNY HOW THE PIECES STARTED GETTING TOGETHER. AROUND FEB 2009 WE RENT A WAREHOUSE AFTER LOOKING A LOT AND GOING FROM HERE TO THERE . WE WERE COMPOSING LIKE MANIACS AND GETTING GOOD RESULTS. ANOTHER GOOD FRIEND CAME ALONG (FERNANDO) AND DO DID SOME IMPROVEMENTS ON THE DESIGNS, LIKE THIS ONE  WITH THE PICTURE OF A BELT BUCKLE  THAT I GOT.

 4RD. FORMATION

FERNANDO : VOCALS

FABIAN : LEAD GUITAR

GONZALO : RHYTHM GUITAR

CRISTIAN : KEYBOARDS

JOSE : DRUMS

TOMAS : BASS GUITAR

 YES WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO THE OFFICIAL DESIGN OF THE BAND AFTER DOING AND REDOING WHAT I ALREADY HAVE DONE.

OK LET'S GO BACK TO THE STORY .AND GUESS WHAT ? YEAH YEAH SOMETHING HAPPENED  AGAIN (FERNANDO) MOVING  FROM GEORGIA WITH NO SO MUCH TIME TO PRACTICE ,EL PETY (GONZALO) WORKING A LOT.WELL SOME THINGS ARE MEANT TO HAPPEN! OOOHHH REALLY HAHA. OK OK.  WE WHERE FINE AT THAT TIME AND AROUND JUN 2009 ANOTHER BIG PIECE OF THE PUZZLE WAS JOINING WHAT MAGDALIAN CAME TO BE . YES ANOTHER GOOD FRIEND (LEANDRO) ANOTHER GUY VERY TALENTED FOR THESE KIND OF THINGS , YES WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO THIS DAYS ...BUT SO FAR WITH THESE GUYS WE REALLY WORK LIKE MANIACS PUTTING TOGETHER WHAT WE REALLY ARE ,AT THAT TIME WE HAVE LIKE , LET ME THINK, I THINK LIKE AROUND 9 OR 10 SONGS COMPLETELY FINISH WITH LYRICS AND MUSIC.  IN OCT 2009 WE FOUND THE LAST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE OUR SINGER(HERNAN). AND AT THE SAME TIME A FEW WEEKS AFTER ANOTHER THING STROKE THE BAND, OUR KEYBOARD PLAYER (CRISTIAN). WE FOUND OURSELVES AGAIN WITHOUT ANOTHER INSTRUMENT IN BAND.AT THIS TIME I CAME ALONG WITH THE OFFICIAL DESIGN THAT WE USE TODAY.SO I CAN SAY IT'S FINISHED.

MAGDALIAN OFFICIAL LETTERHEAD

AND THAT LEAD US TO THE ACTUAL FORMATION OF THE BAND  AFTER TWO YEARS AND A HALF WOW,  TIME REALLY FLIES WHEN YOU ARE BUSY.BUT IN THIS CASE AT THIS TIME WE GOT THE STYLE OF THE BAND FULLY DEVELOPED  , THE SONGS COMPLETELY FINISHED, ENOUGH TO COMPLETE A FULL DEMO AND AN ALBUM. THE GRAPHIC DESIGNS OF WHAT I'M IN CHARGE COMPLETELY FINISHED WITH THE FINAL LOGOS AND EVERYTHING , UHMM IT'S REALLY WORTH IT!

 5FT. FORMATION

HERNAN : VOCALS

FABIAN : LEAD GUITAR

LEANDRO : RHYTHM GUITAR

TOMAS : BASS GUITAR

 

AND EVEN READY TO PLAY AND AFTER RECORDING THE DEMO WE FOUND OURSELVES LOOKING AGAIN FOR A KEYBOARD PLAYER ,THE FINAL PIECE OF THIS BIG PROJECT THAT IT CAME TO BE MAGDALIAN.

AS YOU CAN IMAGINE THESE IS JUST THE STORY AND WE'RE MORE PEOPLE INVOLVED, FRIENDS AND FAMILIES COMING AND GOING,HELPING MAKING THIS THERE OWN PROJECT.I HAVE MET VERY TALENTED AND AWESOME FRIENDS IN THESE TWO YEARS AND SOMETHING,BUT THE STORY DOESN'T END HERE IT GOES WITH EVERYONE OF US.WOW IT'S GETTING TO LATE 2:00 AM.TOMORROW WILL BE ANOTHER DAY AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING IT'S ONE DAY AWAY OF THE FT. LAUDERDALE SHOW.IT LOOKS LIKE A JOURNEY, DOESN'T IT? 

AND ITS FUNNY I'M ADDING THIS NOW 5/14/2010 .AND INDEED HAS SET AN AFTER AND BEFORE POINT BECAUSE AFTER THE FORT LAUDERDALE SHOW EVERYTHING DID CHANGE GOING OUT TO PLAY OUTSIDE NOT ONLY BROUGHT SOME CHALLENGING EXPERIENCE AND ALSO STABILITY IN THE BAND. I THINK THAT IN SOME POINT ALONG THE TIME SOMETHING NEED TO BE PROVE RIGHT , NOT ONLY TO OURSELVES  BUT TO OUR PEOPLE AND THEN IT WAS WHEN THIS HUGE SURPRISE CAME TO ALL OF US ,YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT WAS IT? , OK SIMPLE HOW PEOPLE REACT TO OUR MUSIC , NOT EVEN US WHERE REALLY READY IN THIS MATTER , PEOPLE THAT I NEVER SAW BEFORE, COMING TO ME AND SHARING THEIR OPINIONS AND HOW THEY LOVED IT AND WOW. REALLY BLEW UP MY MIND. SO YOU CAN IMAGINE... AND ALL THIS ONLY ONE WEEK AWAY OF THE RECORDING SESSION AT THE STUDIO. YOU KNOW ITS AMAZING WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AND EVERY SINGLE THING SHOWS THAT THERE IS NO LIMIT. THAT DEPENDS ON YOU HOW FAR YOU WANT TO GO...I REMEMBER GOING INTO THE STUDIO THE FIRST TIME, I WENT THERE WITH FABIAN AND THE EXCITEMENT WAS HUGE.THE SOUND BOARD , THE RECORDING ROOM , EVERYTHING WAS LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE. THE GOOD THING ABOUT IT IS THAT DREAMS REALLY COME TRUE FROM TIME TO TIME...

AND I HAVE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBED THAT NIGHT. WE ARRIVED AT THE STUDIO AT 8:30 PM AND YOU KNOW SETTING EVERYTHING UP BUT I CAN TELL HOW THE EMOTIONS WHERE CONVERGING AT THE SAME TIME MIXING WITH ALL OUR EXPECTATIONS...ALL THIS TIME WAITING FOR THIS TO COME AND NOW IT WAS RIGHT THERE JUST ABOUT TO HAPPEN.WE STARTED, WE PLAYED,WE DID IT! ONE OF MY FINEST NIGHTS IN MY LIFE.

 

 AND THAT ITS NOT ALL,YOU WAIT ENOUGHT TIME AND GOOD THINGS HAPPENED...NOW ANOTHER THINGS ARE COMING NEW PROJECTS , NEW SONGS TO DEVELOPT SO IM PRETTY SHURE THAT WE ACHIVED AND CLOSE ANOTHER CHAPTER IN THE BAND HISTORY.

 

AND GETTING CLOSER TO THE MAGDALIAN 3 RD. ANNIVERSARY. AND AT THIS POINT I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE ,FRIENDS ,FAMILIES ,PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND ME.EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND COMING TO THE BAND PRACTICE TO HEAR HOW THE THINGS WERE TAKING SHAPE TO SHARE WITH US THEY'RE BEST WISHES ,THEIR TIME,THEIR FRIENDSHIP. THIS NIGHT FOR US , FOR THEM , FOR WHATS ABOUT TO COME...CHEERS.
