Born in Bogota, Colombia in June of 1984 Diego came to America that fall, first living in New York City. After moving from New York to New Jersey as a child, Diego began playing guitar at 7 years old. He began writing songs at 15, performing at 16 and working in the studio with his cousins band Zelda Pinwheel. Diego is an award winning radio broadcaster, student leader in college earning his BA in Communication from Monmouth University in 2013 and two time Asbury Music Award Nominee for Top Americana Band with his former group Lot 25. He released three solo albums starting in 2012 all of which were received enthusiastically by local DJs and audiences. In 2016 Lot 25 released it's only LP, the Diego penned Rock Opera 'Eden Boulevard.' After a final show at the legendary Stone Pony in February 2017 Lot 25 disbanded. Diego is back to playing solo and recently released a new single "Lonely in Brooklyn" and the first song from his forthcoming full length release "This American Life" called "Walker's Lullaby" a song he wrote for his sister who gave birth to her first child in May 2018.
