Coastal Clouds R. Rodriguez Santa Monica Coastal Clouds is the music project of Roberto Rodriguez, who works and lives in Santa Monica, California. R. Rodriguez moved to California after college and started to develop his new sound in the West Coast. Residing in LA, R. Rodriguez took studio internships, worked commercial/TV production gigs and played shows around town (Silver Lake, Venice, Hollywood, Pasadena) until he was able to get his debut solo effort produced by Billy Mohler a few years later. The music draws inspiration from classics like The Byrds and George Harrison but the vocals and songwriting also resonate Elliott Smith... Billy Mohler and Aaron Smart decided to start their own record label, MAKE Records, in 2017 and signed Coastal Clouds as the first project on their label. Since then, Coastal Clouds has released a four song EP on MAKE Records and is in the midst of releasing a full-length album which Mohler produced and played bass and guitar on. The new, full length album is due out August 2018 .
