UPDATE: Can anyone help with a mysterious artist named Latesha Escalero?

With all the digital smog that we create about ourselves every day, it’s frightening how much of our personal information is available with a quick Google search. That’s why I’m fascinated whenever I come across someone who is difficult to Google.

Adrian sent me an email asking about an artist named Latesha Escalero who has an album called Hiding My Soundwaves which came out last year.

If you do an Internet search for this guy, you come up with nothing. No bio. No website. No pictures. Just some music files on a variety of streaming sites. Hidden soundwaves? No shit.

Scouring the Internet further turns up just one clue as to this person’s identity: a possible pseudonym for Van Morrison. I mean, just listen to some of these tracks. That’s gotta be him, right? Or is it? Google Play just lists Morrison as a similar-sounding artist.

Can anyone shed any light on this mystery?

UPDATE: This is a weird sort of theft. Check out the comment below.

    Somebody has taken Van Morrison’s 2016 Keep Me Singing album and put it up with a fake name and fake titles.
