As a recording artist, Juan Sánchez has released several albums which have received very good reviews from music bloggers and magazines. His music has been used in countless of YouTube videos as well as short films and for a video commissioned by the New English Ballet Theater. Some of Juan Sánchez music compositions have been included in the compilation album CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL MUSIC, released by the Russian classical music label Oclassica.


In his own words:


"My name is Juan Sánchez, and I am a composer – but I was not  always this way. This journey of mine began when I started taking piano  lessons at the conservatoire at only 14 years old, which is when a deep  passion for music and creation of art was born. During the end of the  80’s until the end of the 90’s, I was playing the keyboard with  different bands, which helped me to feed this passion. In 1995, I  travelled to London to study music and technology, and this is where I  lived for five years. In 1999, I started to make instrumental ambient  electronic music, and since then I have been creating music for  multimedia and sound libraries for music producers.


I have always felt very grateful to have found my job as an ambient  music composer and sound designer, but in my heart, I did not feel  completely fulfilled with this role. I had always dreamed about becoming  a professional pianist and composer, but I didn’t have the confidence  to pursue this dream, as I felt that this was only for very talented  musicians and I did not see myself in that way. I thought that, if I  were to create music, nobody would want to listen to it – or worse, that  they would listen to it and wonder why I had bothered to create music  in the first place.


This negative trajectory that my life was on began to change when,  one day, I discovered the music of ambient artists Max Richter and  Ludovico Einaudi. I fell deeply in love with their compositions. I have  always being a fan of ambient music – in fact, this is the music that I  was creating at that time - but these artists were something special to  me. They were different to the others. I loved the way they were mixing  classical music with electronic sounds, using the piano as the main  instrument. This started a fire of passion in me. Motivated by this  discovery, I started searching for more similar music, and discovered  other artists such as Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds, and other neo  classical composers. I knew that this was the push that I needed to  begin composing my own music.

The first piece I crafted entirely independently, inspired by the  music I had been listening to, was a hybrid neo classical/ambient piano  composition, which I christened as “Rebirth”. In March 2019, I took the  plunge and released “Rebirth” as a single on Spotify and other music  streaming platforms. To my surprise and delight, it was very well  received on Spotify and quickly began to accumulate traction. People  began adding it to their public and personal playlists, and I was  receiving very good feedback and positive reviews from general listeners  and music bloggers alike. They wanted me to make more music – and so  did I.


This positive feedback and reassurance gave me the confidence I  desperately needed to start creating more neo classical/ambient style,  piano focused music. I released each perfected composition as a single  on Spotify. This allowed my audience to grow, as news of my music spread  throughout the music community and more and more people clicked the  “play” and “add to playlist” buttons. People were even following me so  that they would be notified if I released any new music. I was, of  course, thrilled at the positive feedback that was flooding in, but I  was also very surprised, as I never thought that my music could be so  well received.


In this experience, I have also been incredibly lucky to have the  unwavering support of the new age/neo classical music promoter BT  Fasmer, the man behind the very popular New Age Music Guide blog. One of  the pieces of immensely valuable advice BT Fasmer gave me was to  release all of the singles again, but this time collected together as a  complete album. I fortunately followed his advice, which lead me to  September of 2019, when I released the album, also titled “Rebirth”  after the first single I ever released. Thank you, BT, for your support  and guidance!

The positive response that I am receiving for this album is just  incredible. I don’t even have the words to describe how wonderful it is –  it feels like a dream that I will wake up from at any minute. Every  day, I wake up to a flurry of comments from a huge variety of people  across all my social media platforms. They tell me how they feel about  my album; how beautiful they think it is, and how much it has moved them  and changed their perspectives on music or life. Some people have told  me that “Rebirth” has impacted them in a way that no other album has  done before, and others said that they cried the first time that they  listened to it, as they felt that my music touched their souls.  Consequently, I am extremely happy with how the response to the album is  growing and developing over time – this, for a composer, is such a  great achievement, especially for someone who almost did not follow  their dreams due to self doubt.


A question that I receive often along with this feedback is “Why did  you choose the name “Rebirth” for your first album?” or “What is the  meaning behind the title of your album?” Here is my explanation. Over  the course of the last two years, I have started to learn how to  reprogram my brain by taking personal development courses. My goal is to  completely overcome my self-limiting beliefs that were hindering my  growth and personal development. Now that I am starting to see the  fruits of my success and change the way I think, I feel that, in some  way, I am becoming a new person – I have been reborn. I have no doubt  that this is just the start of my career, and that great things are to  come in the future. My music is available to be streamed on Spotify and  other music platforms, under the name Juan Sánchez if you want to follow  along with my journey."
