back in 2011, Sarah asked if I could produce and add something to her then brand new "Conquistador" song, intended for her debut album. Beyond being blown away by the song itself, I was rather moved that she had me in mind for working with her on it, being of half-Spanish, and I felt compelled to create something that would be an ode and tribute to my Spanish ancestry/heritage. So I wrote and arranged a unique "guitar orchestra" arrangement (since i couldn't afford a string and horn section hehe...), playing the electric guitar parts, and added some percussion and hand claps as well.
it was and still is a highlight of my work, both with Sarah and in general, as it was a major step in learning and honing my work as a producer and arranger what you're hearing here is what i original sent to her, using Sarah's original vocal/acoustic guitar demo with my arrangement put under it
