Fernando Perdomo — Dreaming In Stereo band member, Forward Motion Records label boss, and a damn good guitarist — is leaving Miami for Reseda, Cali., a suburb of Los Angeles. An artist leaving Miami for a bigger market is nothing new, but this particular departure is noteworthy because Perdomo has been a steadfast advocate for a certain slice of the Miami music scene (basically, poppy rock and roll), going as far as to write the song “I’m Not Going To Move To LA” several years ago. Alas, the defiant ditty did not hold true. Perdomo is not “staying right here”, though, as he told the Miami New Times, he intends to rep his hometown out west: “… I hope everyone knows that I will now be [a] soldier [for] the scene and will find every possible way to make South Florida music global. 305 till I die …” Bon voyage, Fernando.
