I just launched a new (streamlined) blog for thoughts on music:
I'll post updates on Facebook, so feel free to connect with me there:
My comments on ITP are here:
Nice review on your blog, Damien
Here are a couple of links to some recent live shots of Luis and Into The Presence, plus below a recent demo for Rivera Amps, that he does from time to time

Was fortunate to catch Luis live with the John Waite band on Sunday and also at Robin 2 on monday.
Great gigs with Luis now sole guitarist in this band.
I really need to get to one of John Waite's gigs and see Luis in action with him! Hope you and Penny had an awesome time - I know Penny is a massive fan! xxx
Into The Presence - Studio Update
Luis is featured on the latest album by John Waite, "Rough And Tumble", due in January 2011 and is also included in the accompanying video for the resulting 'single', "Shadows Of Love"
With a new record label, Into The Presence, featuring Luis Carlos Maldonado on guitar, will be re-releasing their debut album, with a couple of bonus tracks. In addition, they've just issued their first "official" video for the song, "End Game".
Tour dates are expected shortly too, along with their second, debut follow-up album, which is all written and currently in production
