Beto Hale - Multi-instrumentalist and music producerPhoto by Emily Sandifer

 

From teaching himself to play drums by playing along to Beatles records as a kid to producing, singing, and playing multiple instruments on his recent studio album, Orbs of Light, Beto Hale is a one man band. Hailing all the way from Mexico City, multi-instrumentalist Beto Hale started playing with local bands in his teens.

Shortly after he graduated high school, he was recruited by Jorge Ceja as a keyboardist for the iconic Latin pop group,Timbiriche. After touring with them, he attended Centro de Investigación y Estudios de la Música (CIEM) and Berklee College of Music. Once he graduated, he worked full-time at KMA records in Manhattan and ended up joining the pop/punk group “The Cogs.”

After receiving a call to join the editorial team for Músico Pro Beto, packed his bags, moved out west to Colorado and quickly became Editor-in-Chief.

Throughout his time in Colorado, he was playing with different experimental rock bands and released Sube (2000) and American Mythology (2006) . Sube being primarily sung in Spanish, blends Mexican influences, Brit pop/rock and American rhythms. His follow-up, American Mythology, sung in English and Spanish builds upon the sound of its predecessor by incorporating jazz guitar and folk elements. It is of a reflection of the eclectic sounds of Mexico City that Mr. Hale encountered in his youth.

In 2007, Beto, moved to Los Angeles and began collaborating with well known producers, musicians and composers throughout the city. Five years later he released Rebirth (2012), a ten song collection, featuring charting singles, “Come as You Are” and “Fire Away” and musicians Tony Levin and Marc Mann. He toured Mexico City to support the collection. His most recent album, Orbs of Light (2017), draws upon the likes of The Beatles, David Bowie, Radiohead and others for his alternative, progressive rock, and post pop-punk sound to spread a positive message through his music.
