Rolling Stone Country Premieres Country Latin Artist Stephanie Urbina Jones’ Video
Wraps up Hispanic Heritage Month with upbeat “Vamonos! (Let’s Go)”
Nashville, TN – Oct. 13, 2016 – To wrap up the month-long celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15), Rolling Stone Country today premiered country Latin artistStephanie Urbina Jones’ video, “Vamonos! (Let’s Go).” See the video here.
Rolling Stone Country’s Stephen L. Betts had this to say about Jones and her exciting new release:
“Although dozens of country songs through the years have reflected a beach theme and the influence of Latin culture, the majority has been hits for white male artists. So it’s doubly refreshing to encounter Stephanie Urbina Jones, a Latina singer-songwriter whose latest single and video, “Vamonos! (Let’s Go),” capture the joyous fantasy of a tranquil island getaway.”
A song like “Vamonos! (Let’s Go)” requires a buoyant video, so director Miguel Valle (Coldplay) and producer Jerry Carlon headed to the island of Isla Mujeres in Mexico for the video shoot. Jones was totally up for it.
“Two days, six crew members, two best friends, a drone, two golf carts, crashing a wedding and a crazy beautiful island in the Mexican Caribbean; we captured the heart and spirit of what I love about Mexico, the Mexican people, and the song ‘Vamonos’,” she enthuses.
It is well documented that songwriters find inspiration for their craft from any variety of places. While “Vamonos! (Let’s Go)” is an upbeat, breezy song with a sunny island video, it was actually written during a very difficult time in Jones’ life. With the help of co-writers Mark Marchetti and Will Robinson, she was able to draw from her heartache and write the song that breathed new hope into her life. Now, through “Vamonos! (Let’s Go)” and the rest of her music, Jones is on a mission to share her new hope with as many people as possible, as she believes that music is a medicine that brings joy, laughter and fun into the world during turbulent times.
“Vamonos! (Let’s go)” is the second single and video from Stephanie Urbina Jones’s fifth album,Fiery Angel. The song embodies her unique brand of Latin country, which celebrates the heart and spirit of her Latin roots in country music. Fiery Angel was just one of two releases for Jones in 2015. The other was a spunky collection of holiday cheer titled Feliz Navidad Y’all
