Born in Bogotá, it was clear from an early age that Juan Garcia-Herreros would one day pursue a musical career. Initially still practicing on the flute and the piano, he discovered the electric bass after moving to Florida with his family. It was love at first sight. He taught himself how to play, and that so well, that quite a few people recognized his exceptional talent and supported him henceforth. His path then led him to New York, where he performed with numerous stars such as Al Jarreau, Elton John, Christina Aguilera, David Newman and Lalo Schifrin.
