Who Is Bruno Mars?

First and foremost, my eyes are failing me exponentially more this semester than any other. I realized that I spend even more time on the computer writing, researching and brainstorming than I eat, sleep and go to class.

This is a definite no bueno.

Anywho, let’s put the spotlight on Bruno Mars, the chorus crooner you’ve heard on B.O.B.’s “Nothin’ On You” and Travis McCoy’s newest summer-single, “Billionaire.”

Peter Hernandez (Bruno’s real name), 23,  hails from Waikiki, Hawaii but moved to L.A. to conjure up his music career. It was  in the city of angels, where he created his production team/music duo – The Smeezingtons, with Philip Lawrence.

With the Smeezingtons, he produced and co-wrote hits like “Right Round” – Flo Rida, and for artists Sean Kingston, Cobra Starship, Maroon 5 and Matisyahu.

Currently,  he created his own EP, set to release May 11 (next week!).
