Infusing his songs with musical elements that reflect his Mexican-American roots and cultural interests, Chris del Camino makes music that can be enjoyed by just about anyone. The LA-based indie pop artist embraces all types of melodies and rhythms, whether he’s blending California reggae and lo-fi hip-hop into his 2021 single “Brighter Day” or incorporating 8-bit elements with sonics inspired by a period when he lived in Turkey on “4 Better Or 4 Worse,” also from 2021. Along with such eclectic music, Chris makes sure to include messages into his songs that will help people feel comforted, as he did on 2022’s “Self Love.” Chris’s latest offering, “As You Are,” is a great representation of his unique style, blending different sounds and encouraging words for a beautiful, lasting moment of pure expression.
On “As You Are,” Chris invites us to a little slice of paradise. Over vibrant riffs and tropical beats, he offers guidance and acceptance to anyone out there who feels they are not enough. With relaxed, soothing vocals, he sings, “So take me to your hidden valley / Show me all your secret ways / ‘Cause no one knows you like I know you / I want your loving / I want you / As you are.” The music and the words are just too good not to believe, encouraging even the most stubborn listener to own and accept their true self.

About “As You Are,” Chris shares,
“Check out my dope song called ‘As You Are’ that’s all about embracing your true self and love without any BS. It’s like the sun in September and those chill Pacific waves keeping you cool in the summer. No need to change a damn thing ‘cause you’re perfect just as you are.”
