Biographies[edit]

Founded by the award-winning composer, singer and producer Mario Domm (Coahuila, Mexico), Camila made its official debut in 2005 when Domm signed his first record contract with Sony Music, together with his friends and colleagues guitarist Pablo Hurtado (San Luis Potosí) and Veracruz native Samo. Camila made Todo Cambió (2006) and Dejarte de amar (2010), which gained them success in Latin America.

Songs like “Abrázame,” “Coleccionista de canciones,” “Todo cambió,” “Mientes,” “Aléjate de mí” and “Bésame,” have gained them three Latin Grammy Awards, three Billboard Awards, Diamond and Platinum certifications, and more than two million albums sold worldwide.

Additionally, they have performed in major venues, such as New York’s and Los Angeles’ NOKIA, El Coliseo in Puerto Rico, in Barquisimeto, Venezuela (a concert with a hundred thousand people in attendance), el Gran Rex de Buenos Aires, Argentina and Viña del Mar, Chile, and Mexico. The band has also worked with international stars, such as Colbie Caillat, Kenny G, Alejandro Sanz, Alejandra Guzman, Reyli, Chambao, Aleks Syntek, and Wanessa Camargo.

In 2014, Camila launches a third studio album, Elypse. It will be the first album released as a duo since Samo left the group. “Decidiste dejarme,” is the leading single for the album.

Mario Domm[edit]

Composer, singer, and producer born in torreon coahuila, Mario Domm commands multiple musical instruments, such as: drums, piano, guitar, and bass.

He has worked to artists Alejandro Sanz, Taboo (of the Black Eyed Peas), Alejandra Guzmán, Kalimba, Reyli, Sin Bandera, Rosana, Jesse and Joy, Romeo, Alejandro Fernández and Thalía.

Domm lives in Los Angeles, California, where he works in his own recording studio named Pop The Cherry Studios.

Pablo Hurtado[edit]

Guitarist and co-producer of Camila, Pablo Hurtado joined the project shortly before graduating in music production and audio engineer at the Fermatta Music School. He was born in Mexico City and grew up in San Luis Potosí in a family with artistic sensibilities.

He began playing the piano at the age of five and when he turned seven his father introduced him to classical guitar. As a teenager he tried the electric guitar. He began to play with several rock bands, and later became interested in musical theatre and progressive music. At the age of 20, he returned to Mexico City and began his audio engineering studies, which opened his mind to other musical genres such as jazz, blues, funk and pop.

At present, sponsored by the guitar brand PRS, Pablo has acquired knowledge and refinement and shows a fresh perspective whether playing acoustic music or intricate solos, sweet ballads or daring ones. His talent has been essential as co-author of several songs in all three of Camila’s albums (“Todo cambió”, “Dejarte de amar”, “Elypse”), which has allowed him to come in contact with giants of world music. He lives in Los Angeles, California, where he has his own recording studio, Cypress Overdrive Studios.
