Bio

Born in Tijuana, Mexico, singer/songwriter Leticia Ascencio's passion has always been music and the message it possesses.

Her first professional break came in 1994, headlining the Mercury Records soundtrack for the urban success "Mi Vida Loca". With the original bad boys of Chicano rap, "Lighter Shade Of Brown", her two singles featured on the soundtrack were a cover of the Honey Cones, "Girls, It Ain't Easy" (featuring Robert "ODM" Gutierrez) and Malo's gorgeous "Suavecito", produced by Jerry Brown, which is still heard every Sunday on the Art Laboe Show. These songs made her an instant favorite amongst Latinos.

That same year, Leticia was featured in the Sony Records soundtrack to the hit movie "I Like It Like That", with John Seda. This time Leticia would be a co-writer on the song "BLACKOUT" produced by Robert "ODM" Gutierrez.

Just a year later, Leticia would be a principal writer for THUMP Records' (The Party Label!) Dance/Club music division, being featured on every single one of their Deep House Quick Mix compilations.

In the summer of 1997, Leticia would introduce her project, VIENNA, to the #1 dance DJ in Los Angeles, Richard Humpty Vission. That same year Scotti Bros. Records was looking for their first single for their newly signed artist "Artie the One Man Party, which was being produced by Vission and Lorimer. She set the clubs on fire with her self-penned Top 10 Billboard dance hit "Mami" which would get played non-stop on L.A.'s #1 Underground Power Tools show, as well as 103.1 Groove Radio.

This would attract many of L.A.'s top Dj's and producers to call on Leticia for her vocal and writing talents.

In 2001 television came knocking on her door, Leticia penned 2 original songs that would be included on TV's first "reality" show for Eden's Crush top 5 album "Popstars", which earned the songstress her first gold record on David Foster's label, 143 Records.

Since that time, Leticia has continued to make musical contributions to many top artists' careers including Daniella Romo (BMG), Puerto Rican Power (Sony Discos Music), Katalina (Thump Records), Lina (Hidden Beach Records), Nobody's Angel (Hollywood Records, Rigo Luna (Machete/Universal Records) and more.

She has worked with Top producers and songwriters such as Oji Pierce, Jon St. James, Jeeve Ducornet, Javier Ceja, Richard Vission, Amanda Cee, Chico Bennett, Vito & Neeley of the Co-Stars, Claudia Brandt, Scoop DeVille, John Mulchaey, Del Pearson, Mark Nubar, Rudy Maya, Robert (ODM) Gutierrez, Lisa Lisa and Michelle Vice-Maslin.

After her "Popstars" success, Leticia's music has remained a staple on many worldwide popular syndicated television shows like Tyra Banks' America's Next Top Model, Doll House, Six Feet Under, The Shield, Resurrection Blvd., Groomsmen, Jeremiah, All About Us, Victoria Beckham Coming To America - UK, Strong Medicine, Bad Girls Club and many, many more.

Mentored by her mother, singer/songwriter Adriana Ascencio, Leticia's passion for singing and songwriting developed in her early teens. She is also inspired by some of the industry's leading ladies like Anita Baker, Teena Marie, Laura Leon, Stephanie Mills, Celia Cruz as well as acts such as Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Los Bukis and The Supremes.
