Alonso Farias

Alonso Farias was born in La Serena (Chile) in 1991. He grew up there, went on to study political science and worked in the Congress of Chile (2014-2015). However, he left this career to pursue his passion of music. He left his job and his home in September 2015, and traveled over 38 countries of 4 continents, writing music and practicing his art; first on the streets, then in the bars and clubs with his new duo, TASTE IT.

In early 2017, he went back to Chile alone and formed La Doctrina. This group went on to be one of, if not the most important new group of his region. Alonso organized many popular cultural events at his home in La Serena, hosting and performing with LA RATA BLUESERA, the largest blues act in the country, as well as 20+ different bands during different events and festivals. Alonso leaves his home with a reputation as one of the most respected, known and hard working faces on the music scene in the last year. Now he is currently in Canada bringing the music of TASTE IT around the world.

When Alonso went back to Chile, Austin continued to perform, briefly with a travelling Gospel & Dixieland band in Portugal, then leading a separate blues duo act in Liverpool (UK), followed by another gospel and bluegrass act performing in a Portugal and Spain.   

Most recently he spent 6 months in Chile with Alonso's band. In this six months the band became an important face of the blues scene in Chile, performing in festivals, casinos, and being the host to many popular bands from around the country.
