of fresh blood
Eduardo Hernández Saucedo, with his 21 years, is a Chihuahuan composer and singer who has the attributes that are considered to rise to such an important stage.
Like most of the singers and musicians who will be at Coachella, he has youth, his own music, a very characteristic style and thousands of followers on digital platforms, which is the way in which emerging artists spread their creations, promote tours and become in global phenomena.
With almost a million followers on Instagram, Ed Maverick yesterday joined this legion of performers by being part of the poster of one of the most famous music festivals in the world.
He was not yet of legal age when Eduardo, who had learned to play the guitar in a self-taught way, began to compose some songs. Among his influences were Mexican artists such as Dromedarios Mágicos, Juan Cirerol and Little Jesus.
Already with some songs, in 2018 he released his album “Mix pa’ Llorar en tu cuarto” through the independent label Eidan Box Records. In that album is ‘Fuentes de Ortiz’, without a doubt the song that led him to know the meaning of the word ‘viral’, and later, to step on stages such as the Lunario of the National Auditorium and the Metropolitan Theater of Mexico City.
Last year, Ed Maverick collaborated with C. Tangana on the single ‘Párteme la cara’ from the album ‘El Madrileño’. He has also collaborated with Mexican artists such as Señor Kino and Bratty.
His music, in addition to folk, has been cataloged in the genres of modern psychedelia and sadcore.
