Ramon Ortiz’s career has always been characterized by the exploration of seemingly incompatible musical genres and the relentless pursuit of fusing them together. His music ranges in influence, craftily balancing traditional shred with Latin American rhythmic instrumentation and various fusion elements. Portal showcases these influences and more, and progresses even beyond Ortiz’s first solo record, Ortiz (2012). This first record initially introduced fans to Ortiz’s undeniable musical ability in a solo setting, and reached the top 20 most-played tracks on Sirius XM Liquid Metal.
Ramon Ortiz is currently sponsored by Seymour Duncan pickups, Mesa Boogie amps and Fernandes guitars, who built him his first signature seven string tribal themed guitar, designed by Ortiz himself.
