A Love Electric is a three nationality critically acclaimed power trio born out of Mexico City’s jazz scene. In ten years of tireless touring and creative output, Todd Clouser, Hernan Hecht/Jorge Servín, and Aaron Cruz, all celebrated artists in their own right, have released seven records on labels in the United States, Mexico and Europe, touring the world creating music on their own terms, performing over a thousand shows on four continents.

A Love Electric has resisted conforming to any established genre identified market, a trend that continues with band’s 2020 release, “Permanent Immigrant”. After performances at some of the world’s most acclaimed jazz festivals in 2016 and 2017 – from Winter Jazz in New York City to jazz festivals throughout Latin America – the band that taken a decidedly more rock and song oriented approach on following releases, perhaps equal parts self-sabotage and preservation. With A Love Electric is about the dedication to exploring the creative act. Risk, commitment to the music, and a powerful dynamic between the three band members that can only be developed through years of collaboration on stage and off, give A Love Electric’s performances a dynamism that has allowed the band to create its own touring circuit outside of established markets, returning year after year to countries throughout Europe, cities in Mexico, and in 2019 for the groups’s second China run.

The group is led by guitarist and vocalist Todd Clouser, a Minnesota native now based in Mexico City, where he releases music in a prolific manner, runs Ropeadope Sur Records, the non-profit Music Mission, and is co-editor of the books “Musicians in Mexico City Vol. 1 and 2”.
