MARTIN GONZALEZ is a Colombian-born, US-based guitarist & composer for anime and video games – best known for his work as composer on the Season 9 soundtrack of the Rooster Teeth anime “RWBY”, his metal band Atomic Guava, and his latest endeavor as a solo artist.

After graduating Berklee College of Music in 2019, GONZALEZ started working as a freelance composer & music producer scoring for the eighth season of the anime “RWBY”, which led him to become the lead composer for the show in Season 9. Simultaneously, he worked with his band Atomic Guava and released two EPs and one studio album (‘Peasants of the Future‘ – 2022) as well as two albums and an EP with his former band Ok Goodnight (‘Limbo‘ – 2019, ‘The Fox & The Bird‘ – 2023). At the end of 2022, GONZALEZ decided to launch his solo career with the release of the ‘Blossoms’ EP, and by 2023 he released a full OST along with a couple of singles.

In the span of a year, MARTIN’s solo work has gathered over 4 million streams as an independent artist, and birthed collaborations with Zac Zinger (League of Legends / 8-bit Orchestra), Richard Henshall (Haken), Elizabeth Hull (Atomic Guava), John Benoit (Resilia), Casey Lee Williams (RWBYOk Goodnight), Lechuga & Cenk Esen, and most notably garnering praise from Ex-Guns n’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal.

Suspiro’ is MARTIN’s debut solo album, coming out in March 2024, and his most personal work to date. GONZALEZ‘s aspirations to tour and share his music with the world are the next domino to tip, and he has every intention of making it happen this year.

It was my pleasure to have Martin Gonazalez On the Interview to speak on Suspiro and much more on his magnificent journey of music. Check out the complete coverage on the below YouTube video.
