Black Shoe Records/Indie Extreme award-winning singer-songwriter, Matt Brouwer www.mattbrouwer.com produced this latest effort from California native Quimi.Alaniz. Quimi embarked on her first full tour opening for Matt and his band in 2009. Touring together created an opportunity for both to develop a creative connection inspiring the direction of her new music and career. Quimi moved to Houston, TX in the Fall of 2009 and began writing with Matt and collecting songs for this project. The pair decided on six songs that challenged Quimi with a new sound. With Brouwer’s input she has created a sound all her own that shows her heart and soul and goes deeper than ever before. Quimi said, “I want this album to speak truth and Matt helped me find the words to convey something real and authentic.”

Quimi, M&M Ministries/Indie Extreme, is a young artist with goals of spreading God’s message internationally through her music. A nationally ranked tennis player at 16 years old, she always dreamed of becoming a singer, but it wasn’t till these past few years that she left tennis and began to pursue her dream. Quimi’s debut, self-titled album delivered a #1 single, “All For Love” in 2009 on the CRW Global AC, INSPO and Canada Charts. The album was filled with heartfelt with songs in both English and Spanish. Quimi continues her signature multi-cultural, bilingual authenticity in the new project.

His album “Where’s Our Revolution” produced by Grammy winning producer, Michael Omartian and distributed by Indie Extreme/Universal Music Christian Group/Fontana, has earned him a 2009 Covenant Award for “Best Folk/Roots Song of the Year” for “The Other Side” and Fan Choice Artist of the Year”.
