Colombian singer-songwriter MOSSAICCO’s debut pop single, The Tree, is a touching exploration of life’s profound nature​. The emotionally charged track was inspired by personal experiences during Christmas 2022 at his Cartagena farm, where a piano beneath a tree sparked the creation of this moving song. As MOSSAICCO and his uncle Gonzo hummed along to the chords, the introspective lyrics took shape, reflecting on life’s complexities and his role for his younger siblings.

Inspiration struck MOSSAICCO and his uncle Gonzo at their Cartagena farm, where a piano nestled next to a tree became the starting point for the chord progression of The Tree. As they hummed along, MOSSAICCO, gazing at the tree, began reflecting on life, his role for his younger siblings, and penned the heartfelt lyrics. Drawing elements from Coldplay and The Beatles, The Tree was recorded at Gonzo’s studio in Medellin and expertly mixed and mastered by sound engineer Cesar Bohorquez in his Dolby Atmos-equipped studio.

Accompanied by a beautifully poignant music video, the visual counterpart to The Tree enhances the emotional depth of MOSSAICCO’s debut. Positioned within the vibrant Medellin music scene, where global stars and hidden gems converge, MOSSAICCO emerges as a bright talent ready to shape his unique path.

MOSSAICCO’s musical story began during his school days when a perceptive music teacher recognized his stage presence. His exploration of Colombian music, particularly Vallenatos, evolved into storytelling through historic films. Today, MOSSAICCO stands as an emerging artist, choosing to create music with real instruments, a decision that reflects his commitment to authenticity.

Stylistically rooted in pop, MOSSAICCO’s music resonates with positive joy and energy, laced with subtle tones of melancholy. The name “MOSSAICCO” embodies his multifaceted persona, reflecting his love for writing, filmmaking, singing, and acting.

MOSSAICCO’s unique identity, created from this kaleidoscopic array of creative facets, is a testament to his ability to make a significant impact on the Colombian music scene and beyond.
