Moreno's own descriptor, "Spanglish folk-soul," is as close to definitive as we're going to get, and yet it barely scratches the surface. The singer-songwriter infuses Ilusión with equal splashes of soul, country-inspired rock 'n' roll and Latin Alternative sounds, and she puts her best foot forward with lyrics that touch on love, the immigrant experience and violence against women around the world.
It's beyond exciting to hear an ascending artist reach that space where all her potential has finally come together. It all adds up to a statement that sets a bold course for a musical vision with no limitations.
