deCasa Returns With New Song “partOfMe”
Austin-based Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Ricky Santiago-Cruz, aka deCasa returned with a new song “partOfMe”, after a 3-year hiatus on October 12, 2023.
The song is his first music since the 2020 EP “Runaway”.
The track was written by Luis Ricardo Santiago Cruz. He recorded it in Austin with Brandon Daniels and mixed/mastered by YATTE.
The song is a record for anyone who has emerged victorious through times of self-doubt.
deCasa said of the song, “It's been three years since I've put out any music and during that time I lost a lot of self confidence. Nothing was good enough and the possibility of actually being able to make a career out of music seemed to get farther and farther away. However – throughout those 3 years I got to sort of recharge the bank for things to write about. I also moved out on my own which is something I had been wanting to do for a minute. While doing so I stumbled upon a lot of small things I've collected over the years. Memories that made me who I am and this is how the song came about.”
- For the deCasa, it is his first official release working with his little brother and prodigal drummer Diego Santiago-Cruz.
deCasa said, “What's magical about this song for me is that I get to picture my brother and I writing any time I listen to this song. This was the first time I've had a drummer to bounce ideas off of while writing and I have to say it makes the world of a difference.”
He continued, “I just really hope people relate to the song. I want them to look at the cover, listen to the track, and think about all the little things they've hung onto throughout their lives that have made them who they are today.”
