We had the good fortune of connecting with Lester Paredes and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lester, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I was introduced to music when I was 5 because of my father, He was a musician and music teacher, SInce then I have lived music as a lifestyle. I have decided to be in my own music or business when I started to compose original music for myself, to express my feelings and thoughts through my language which is the music. Then I kept doing my original music for my own albums and film projects, and became a film composer and producer. All of that besides work as a musician, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist with different organization companies and artist around the world
