How did you come by your stage name?
Finding my stage name was always a struggle. One day at work, I was asking one of my friends what name should I come up with. Then she told me, “so people call you Lobo”, (that’s wolf in Spanish) and you like to write, read, etc… so I said to myself, “archives”. Our life is a library of stories, so why don’t I call myself “Wolf Archives”?
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I started writing songs since I was 14 years old. At that time, my real friends were my pencil and notebook. I didn’t have many friends and was very lonely because of how shy I was. Or maybe I was too introverted and didn’t realize it. So I started writing love songs and then I learned to play the guitar. After many years of ups and downs, I started a course with BM Studio and got two Music Production Certificates. I got my first single approved with Common Sense Music Label, and here we are. I thought to myself, why don’t I make a living with all my talents now?
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
Ohhh boy! My passion for music started with 3 bands! Red Hot Chili Peppers, Papa Roach, and Linkin Park! I just saw how they perform on stage and I can only imagine how they feel after each concert. The adrenaline going up and everything! Then comes Evanescence with Fallen. It was an incredible time for rock music. In the last few years, I started listening to music by Adele, Ed Sheeran, Hidden Citizens, etc. I love how epic their music sound. Something cinematic and moving. I find the lyrics unique and touching to the heart.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
I wanted it to sound different. I know that my songs are new to the music industry but very old to me. I came up with that concept because it’s what I experienced. My songs will take place from parts of my life. There is sadness and overcoming obstacles. Is how I am shaped.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
For me, there is no challenge. My only requirement is to be truthful and legitimate. There are a couple of people who will be working with me in the near future. My greatest attribute is my flexibility when I speak in musical terms. Of course! If I see a red flag, with all respect, I will let them know.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
No. I don’t consider myself better than anyone. It is very controversial to talk about musical topics like this. For me, you either like it or you don’t. There is no middle ground. Of course, I have my own opinion about artists nowadays, but I just focus on being the best I can be for my people and myself.
Wolf Archives Interview with Muzique Magazine
What are your plans for the near future?
To continue building a fan base, producing more songs, and creating more music videos. I know it’s hard to be recognized, but as long as I continue to do what I love and receive the support of my loved ones, there is no better feeling than that. And of course, I would love to sing on a stage full of Wolf Archives fans, hahaha.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shoutouts?
I would like to thank Common Sense Music for approving my singles and liking my music, my friends and family for supporting me, and especially my fiancée Jaylene Torres who is always there for me when I need someone to take a video or a picture for my music-related material. I love you.
How can fans find you?
You can find me on Instagram, Tik Tok, YouTube, Spotify, and Sound Cloud.

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Do not give up on your dreams! But don’t change your style because of what’s being broadcast, either. Some genres and lyrics are meant to make money, that’s true, but are you happy with what you do? There is always someone who will listen to you and love your music. Do not envy others, collaborate with them instead. And when you see an opening, don’t waste that opportunity. Be Brave.
