We had the good fortune of connecting with Burton Car and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Burton, why did you pursue a creative career?
I remember one of my first shows as a Lead Guitar Player back from where I originally am , Buenos Aires, I still have a vivid memory of feeling like i have never felt before, a sense of freedom and joy , while playing for an audience, it was at this moment that I decided I will pursue this feeling for all my life, it was a moment of clarity and honesty,.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.

For an Argentinian musician to be able to work, live and support their family while being on the US, and during a Pandemic, it’s already a big accomplishment,
I think what sets Radio Ritual apart from other bands, is this sense of community and responsibility to always deliver the best we can and do it independently, Radio Ritual is a band founded by 5 musicians from Argentina, Spain, Texas, Brazil that have gathered and joined forces in Los Angeles, Calfornia as an intimate celebration on the golden days of Rock N Roll, in our lyrics you will find feelings, stories and social messages joined by a powerful and tight rhythmic and rocking section, derived by powerful and warm riffs that will take you back to those good old days of Rock and Roll as well as Grunge and Alt Rock.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.

It would take me 2 weeks to show him LA, but I would definitely show him, Santa Monica, Malibu, Venice and all those beautiful beaches in LA , Griffith Park and its many many hiking trails, Big Bear and Mountain High and many more places. !

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to give Shoutout! to my uncle, Sergio Car , he was always showing me new records and blasting out Metallica and The Ramones, when we used to visit our family’s house on the weekend, He has always supported me in my career and to this day he is still supporting my artistic career! I think he deserves more than a little credit for showing both me and my cousin Diego, his beloved record collection which had a huge impact on me !
