Rodolfo Arteaga

Since a very young age, music has been the center of Rodolfo Arteaga’s life. Born in Ciudad Ojeda, Venezuela, he has always had the support of his family in pursuing a musical career. At the age of 14, he was playing the cello in the state’s symphony orchestra and singing in a tropical music band that he put together. He had a difficult time at the age of 16 when, after high school graduation, he decided to migrate to the United States looking for the best education and career possibilities. He lived in Miami, Florida, for two years during which he crafted many of the songs for his first album, due for release this year. After finishing his associate’s degree in arts at Miami Dade College, something told him that it was time to try something new. Arteaga wanted to go to Berklee, and he did. After spending time in 2015 doing a national tour in Venezuela and experiencing for the first time the life of a working artist, he returned to Berklee to finish his bachelor’s degree.
