Georgel is redefining what it means to be a “real man.” This singer-songwriter has made it his mission to break barriers and boundaries within music to create a path for younger artists to freely and fully express themselves.
With music running through his family Georgel Julio Rosas-Reyes grew up in the city of Monterrey and was always around various musical influences that he soon began to embody.
When he was 13-years-old, he began to fully hone in on his craft by diving into lyrics and musical theater.
Soon his teachers became highly impressed with his skill and talent that they suggested he should head over to the United States to chase his dream of music.
Fast forward to 2021, Georgel has had over 170,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and over 11 million views on Youtube, all because he decided to chase his dream and pursue his passion.
Along with pursuing his passion for music, he also makes his efforts to bring light to LGBTQ+ issues within the community. For pride month, his latest song, “No Putx,” featuring Tito Fuentes, affirms and embodies him putting his foot down on that homophobic slur.
He expresses to the world that this is who he is and that nobody will define him with that word.
“I’m a songwriter, so I reflect a lot about the origin of words and why they’re still being used,” he said.
Through this song, he wanted to show his listeners a different side of him, letting the people know he is not the one. He tells the various stories and experiences he has had with homophobia.
“It just such a harsh word and so disruptive,” he said.
As he maneuvers through the music industry, he makes sure he is full of integrity and making sure he never hides who he is.
As he embarks on his music journey, he discussed what is next for his career and sees his music taking him.
“No Putx” is the second single off my upcoming EP “Oscuro,” which means dark… and I’m excited for what’s coming out,” he said.
Georgel is putting together his out music festival for the second year, which is a culmination of 10 LGBTQ+ artists where he is using his platform to extend pride month and show love to all LGBTQ+ creatives.
