About Sergio

Author: admin

Sergio Wals was born in Mexico City. His interest for music was evident from his very early years and started learning to play the guitar when he was 7 years old. As a teenager, Sergio tried to put together a rock band, but the project never took off. However, he wrote some songs and the musical bug never left him. During the summer of 2004, Sergio moved from Mexico to Illinois to attend graduate school at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. One year later, Sergio met Jeff Mondak and during the summer of 2006 they drove to Peterborough, Ontario to spend a weekend with Alex Stangl at his Sherbrooke studio. In very many ways, that weekend marked the beginning. Although Sergio used to play live music in a local restaurant in Champaign, Illinois, he had never been recorded. Jeff decided to put a couple of his lyrics into Alex’s musical talent and Sergio’s voice. The products: “Love Songs in the Rain” and “In the Morn”.
