ABSTRAKTO (Asdru Sierra + Balt Getty)
ABSTRAKTO is the exciting answer to the question of what happens when you mix the vocalist and multi-instrumentalist of the Latin Grammy-winning group Ozomotli and an actor that double as a music producer. Asdru and Balt met at their kids’ school, leading to Asdru laying down some vocals on the critically acclaimed Solardrive Balt produced that launched Purplehaus Records. Their creative collaboration sparked a friendship and late in 2013, ABSTRAKTO was born in Balt’s Hollywood studio. [Insert description of the sound]
Asdru Sierra
After migrating from Mexico, Asdru and his family settled in Los Angeles, California. Asdru was soon displaying his musical gifts, and the uncanny ability to play and make music out of any instrument he touches. He zeroed in on the trumpet, all the while harboring his true desire to express himself musically as a singer.
He realized his dream as lead singer of Ozomotli, making eight records as part of the group and winning two Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album of the Year Grammy Awards, three Latin Billboard Awards, two Alma Awards, a BMI Songwriting Award, and a more recent Latin Spirit Award for humanitarian work along the way. He’s thrilled to have been able to focus on his own material and loved collaborating with Balt.

Balthazar Getty
Balt has been acting since he was 14 (Lord of the Flies, Brothers & Sisters), but has always been a hip-hop kid at heart, making beats since he was a teenager sneaking into clubs to hang out with the local LA DJ’s. Years later he did it for real as a producer for the band Ringside, a collaboration with Scott Thomas. Most recently, Balt joined forces with LA based rapper K.O. the Legend to create the group “The WOW Inc.,” which releases material early this summer. Balt produced pop, dance, and rap before having a blast shifting his focus to Asdru’s Latin-infused melting pot of sounds.
