Rodrigo Ace

Rodrigo ACE (born in Santiago Chile), arrived in Paris at the age of three. As a child, he was naturally attracted to music thanks to his uncle Raul Acevedo (member of the Andean music band “ILLAPU“). Rodrigo grew up listening to artists such as Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Luis Miguel, Brian McKnight and many others…

Today his influences are clearly Latin–pop!

As an author, composer and singer, Rodrigo began learning to play guitar at the music conservatory of Massy. By the age of eighteen, he had signed his first recording contract under the name “Tchill”, with Gambler Records. After which, Rodrigo experienced many solo or group projects over the years under the name Rody Mendez.

Driven and determined, Rodrigo decided to take his career a step further and successfully auditioned the lead part in Disney’s Paris show of High School Musical On Tour. With this show, Rodrigo improved on his stage work and dance skills. Since then, he continues to work for Disney by recording vocals for the Disney Channel : station idents and commercials for their programs (Phineas & Ferb, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Disney Talent…).

Along with his studio work, Rodrigo used to be a member of Gospel Pour 100 Voix, the biggest Gospel Choir in Europe with whom he toured Europe during 5 years.

He also performs with one of the most prestigious Parisian orchestras : Les Cigales with whom he has learned so much about live entertainment, playing with some of the most talented musicians and performing with large ensembles including strings and brass sections.

Driven by his instincts, Rodrigo decided to take off for Los Angeles, to play with the Urban Bachata group “Jon Jonn“ under the La Calle/Univision label, with producer/composer Michael Figueroa aka «Figtunes» (X-treme, Frankie J…). Eventually the band split up, and Rodrigo returned to France with the absolute certainty that Latin Music was his true calling !!!

He has since learned to use all the new music production tools, to produce his own tracks.

Rodrigo is now currently working on the composition, production and performance of his first solo album in Spanish.

It’s his friend Thierry Battery who introduced Rodrigo to his brother composer «TeeToff» (BIG ALI, JESSI MATADOR…) and from this obvious collaboration were born the first catchy songs on his first album in spanish…
