NEW MUSIC FROM LATIN GRAMMY AWARD WINNER JORGE MORENO
Jorge Moreno is an American musician of Cuban descent. Discovered by Madonna, he was the 1st latin artist signed to her Maverick Musica Record Label. Moreno won much critical acclaim for his debut album "Moreno" and was awarded a Latin Grammy award for "Best New Artist", Early the next year he was nominated in the (Anglo) Grammy's for "Best Latin Album" and was one of the first artists to perform in Spanish on Good Morning America.
He also received much praise and a Univision Nomination for his avant gard self directed Video for his track "Mi Sufrimiento", in which Moreno humorously confesses that the record company would not pay for another video so he did it himself.
After the dissolution of Maverick, Moreno went indie and was soon asked by Clive Davis to record a track "Satellite" with none other than Carlos Santana for the movie soundtrack Miramax film "Havana Nights" (Dirty dancing part 2) produced by Moreno's first producer Lester Mendez (Shakira).
Moreno then proceeded to release his second album cleverly titled "El Segundo" which started to gather more critical acclaim but was lost at radio in a wave of Reggaeton fad.
Soon after he performed his signature version of Babalu' on the Victoria Secret Fashion show broadcast worldwide and seen by over 40 million people.
In 2011 Moreno won the International Songwriters contest as best Video for his song "Thank you" and came in as first runner up for the composition.
Moreno can also add TV Producer to his many talents, he opened a Production company on South beach named Beach Pictures which focuses on Docu-Reality content. He has produced content for MTV, CURRENT TV, TLC and the CW. He was creator and Executive producer of the summer series "The Catalina" based on the real life employees of the popular South Beach hotel. The Catalina was a one-hour show on the CW network.
More recently, Moreno has branched into being a "restaurateur" having opened "Moreno's Cuba" a 1950's style speakeasy bar and cafe at the DORCHESTER Hotel and Suites at 1850 Collins Ave Miami Beach Fl, 33139 on South Beach and also "Mr. Wright's Gold Digger Saloon" a theatrically designed, Old West - early American settler themed bar in the Wynwood arts district of Miami.
