SANTUARIO is soul crooner Lester Rey’s newest and most personal project to date. Born and raised in Chicago’s Puerto Rican Humboldt Park neighborhood, Lester hopes that his own display of vulnerability can serve as a beacon for listeners struggling to release emotions they’ve been conditioned to hide. A reminder to himself and others to sit in their true emotions no matter how uncomfortable it may be, while the conclusion is a call to face one’s devils.
