Mesa Bluemoon Recordings announces the release of a new and video single from Los Angeles blues rock artist LUIS OLIART, “Let Me In”, on Friday, April 24, 2020. The sultry contemporary blues duet features Oliart and Verginia Moon on vocals, co-written by Kristina Lee West. The track will be available on digital outlets worldwide, and is the first of three singles expected from Luis in 2020.
The versatile artist, who also composes for film and television, acts, and teaches, describes the prolific phase he is in during this pandemic, “I have been challenged to work on the production and visuals all on my own. It was great shooting the video with Verginia, and even designed a set for online performances to make it fun until I can play live again. I am actually in a good place in my artistic career right now”. The video shows an passionately indifferent exchange between Oliart and Moon as they sing about the romantic disappointment which can happen when you want to get back together…but it simply doesn’t work.
Luis Oliart moves people with his music, but also takes action to help the homeless crisis in LA. After ten years as Volunteer Director of The North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry, Oliart is now Advocacy Lead for www.nohohome.org, in which he has developed a Homeless Reduction System (HRS) for Council District 2 in Los Angeles. He recently rallied his community to donate masks to those in need who were willing to wear them but had no access. “There are too many people on the streets who know the blues in a very real way. I’m here to advocate for them. It’s a different kind of inspiration”.
