California-based singer-songwriter, Lance Rodriguez, releases his highly anticipated debut album, ‘Empath’.
Following the success of his debut EP ‘Dark Light’ in 2022, Lance presents a 9-track offering that delves even deeper into the realms of acoustic, pop, and soul elements to craft a unique “hybrid pop” sound that is both diverse and emotionally charged.

Known for his lyrical prowess, Lance bares his soul in each track, encouraging his audience to explore their own feelings through his music.

The song’s soft piano melodies, complemented by the gentle strums of acoustic guitar, create an uplifting soundscape that serves as the perfect canvas for Lance Rodriguez’s heartfelt message. “11Eleven is an anthem to tell my audience it’s perfectly okay to be scared but to go out and pursue your dreams, get started on your 11:11 wish, without fear of failure,” explains Rodriguez.
