NBC used "Sunday Summertime" for the end-of-day montage of winners in the 2008 Olympics. Lopez' second album is due for release in 2010. The first single "Run" was released in November 2009 and the second single "Hot Pink" was released in January 2010. Remixes for both songs are due out in March 2010 and are being added to radio along with the single versions. After signing with Rondor (Universal Music Group) in 2008, Lopez started producing and writing for Varsity Fanclub (Capitol Records). Lopez has also been a producer and co-writer for Joey McIntyre, Charice, Drew Ryan Scott, Thomas Fiss, Shinee (Top 5 hit in South Korea), Tyler Hilton, Jeff Silbar, Brent Paschke, Chris Salvatore, and other recording artists. Lopez had been writing for James Brown in late 2006 and two songs penned by Lopez were to be on Brown's next album entitled "World Funk Against the Grain" due for a 2007 release.
Brown died on Christmas Day, 2006, but said in a press release a month before, "Mr. Lopez gets the funk. Mr. Lopez gives us hope for the future of music." Influenced by The Beatles, Sheryl Crow and Stevie Wonder, Lopez trained vocally in opera to secure vocal technique and range and studied classical and jazz theory for composition.
He is self-taught in piano, guitar, bass and drums. He also taught himself to read and write sheet music. Lopez resides in Los Angeles, CA. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
