Artist Biography by

A glammy power pop band from Los Angeles, Asa Cruz is like the mutant offspring of the Sweet and the Raspberries. Singer/guitarists Daniel Bautista and Bryan Hopkins formed Asa Cruz in the spring on 1998, adding mono-named bassist Axel and drummer John Apone in time to record their first album. Originally recorded (by Bautista, who also writes all the songs and takes a majority of the lead vocals) as a demo to spur major-label interest, Asa Cruz wisely decided instead to self-release the album Pop Star, which came out in April, 2001.
