Bio

#18 on 3rd Coast Music Network FAR Chart!

The borderlands of Southwest Texas have an unmistakable spirit. It is there that Mexican and American styles have mixed to create one genuine, beautiful culture unlike any other. An artist has emerged from this place with an exceptional talent for projecting the essence of her unique homeland, and the gift of bringing the listener there.

“A true Texas troubadour,” Bianca De Leon breathes the spirit of the borderlands into her music for the world to experience. This talented singer-songwriter has long been established in Europe for her passionate music, and now this artistic phenomenon has finally released her CD to U.S. audiences!

Bianca’s amazing CD has some of the best musicians on it, including a number of Grammy Award Winners, to help bring her intricate storytelling to life: Flaco Jimenez (Los Super Seven), Bobby Flores, Max Baca (Los Super Seven, Texas Tornadoes), Joel Guzman (Los Super Seven), Eddie Cantu (Charlie Robeson), Redd Volkaert (Merle Haggard), Teye (Joe Ely), Mikael Guerra, & Marty Muse, just to name a few!

“The Tex-Mex border ballad is a specialized genre, and there are only a few artists who excel at it. Bianca De Leon, who was raised near Corpus Christi, is one of them and therefore nearly in a class of her own. On The Long Slow Decline of Carmelita, her third and best album, De Leon proves once again that she’s as good a singer as she is a songwriter, and she gets very strong support from an all-star cast of Austin and Tejano musicians including Bobby Flores, Joel Guzman, and Redd Volkaert. Some of the most-compelling tracks include “Don’t Drink The Water Pancho”, “Nowhere Mexico”, In the Shadow of a Sagelbrush”, Six Pak of Misery,” “Muy Cerca de Mi” (the only bilingual song), “Guitarra Mia”, and the title song, which features Flaco Jimenez. The album is a consistently strong collection of south Texas songs with a border-lands flavor. (PCE) Dirty Linen

“A voice from Texas that does it right”. Guy Clark

“‘Border ballad’ has become such a loathsome cliché that I’d like to send a copy of The Long Slow Decline of Carmelita (and David Rodriguez’ Man Against Beast) to everyone who’s written or plans to write one, to show them why they shouldn’t. Add De Leon to your list of true Texas singer-songwriters.” – John Conquest, 3rd Coast Music

Bianca De Leon also has a song on the video game “Big Mother Truckers 2” and her song “Six Pak of Misery” is featured in a major film called “Cut Off” starring Faye Dunaway, Malcolm McDowell, Amanda Brooks, and Ann Archer. Further info on this film can be found at www.imdb.com.
