Meet Albae Camino of Analog in Miami

Today we’d like to introduce you to Albae Camino.

Albae, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was born in Miami but moved to Cancun before I was even 6 months old. As far as I can remember,the will to make art has always been part of my persona. I started drawing at age 3, by ages 7-13, I would get commissioned by my classmates to draw their respective favorite cartoon characters and short-story comics. My grandmother Hilda used to play the piano for me as a kid. My dad also has a musical background, he plays guitar and sings. I learned piano at 10. At 15, I picked up the guitar and started singing. I came back to the US for high school and Junior College at the New Mexico Military Institute, then I transferred over to the University of Miami.

During my time in UM, I started a band with some of my best friends. We played house parties and some bars in south beach. Eventually, we shifted to performing original material. We have an EP published independently, available on all major online outlets ( Spotify, iTunes). After three years of constantly playing all around town. We got the funds to go into the studio and are now currently cooking up a full-length album. This album was recorded at Romanelli Recordings in Hollywood and it’s currently being Mixed by Ferny Coipel from The Shack studios in Hialeah.

I’m also a classically trained visual artist. My favorite mediums are oil and pencil. Recently, I’ve been playing with watercolors. I don’t sell any of my paintings, at least not until I finish the collection. Before the year’s end, you might see them during Art Week. I do take custom ordered commissions such as portraits. If you don’t know what to give a loved one for a special event, hit me up!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
No one ever sails smoothly all the time. The water will get choppy. Instead of elaborating on the hard shit, let me just say that, when life gets hard and difficult, just press on and keep moving forward

Please tell us about analog,.
Well, I wouldn’t call it a business business in the first place. Its art, its expression. Yeah at some point, there is an exchange of goods and services, but unlike most of the people out there, making money is not the priority. All the focus and passion goes into the work, if you see one of my paintings or catch me perform around town, you will understand.

Analog is the combination of four individuals: Manu, Esteban, George and myself. I sing, play guitar, manage and design the visual stuff for it. We are known for our energetic live performances, and for being one of the few Miami acts that run their operation as professional as possible. I could let the bullshit spill on how we are “oh so different” from everybody else, instead, I’ll let that up to you. Come to our shows or go listen to our published work, and make your own opinion. (Next show, April 3rd at Ricky’s in Sobe.)

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
No. There might be a few minor details I would’ve done differently, but other than that. No.
