Biography

United by a love for Latin music, and similar upbringings in Mexican-American households, Son de Rey has embarked on a remarkable, musical journey that all began with a simple Craiglist Ad. The group sorted through their differences, and started composing songs that reflected their personal hardships and emotions, blending traditional sounds from their Latin heritage, with mainstream American influences.

In August 2012 they released the Ojos Azules – EP produced by Grammy Winner Fabian Hernandez noted for his work with Little Joe Y La Familia, Ruben Ramos & The Mexican Revolution, & Hamilton Loomis. The album reached the top 100 downloads in the iTunes Pop Latino Category and has consistently remained at the Top 10 in the ReverbNation Austin Latin Charts

They were soon invited to join the top Mexican Regional and Tejano artists in a music video filming of “Somos Hermanos,” as featured on Univsion’s Primer Impacto in an effort to fight children’s hunger. Todo Austin Magazine hailed the group as “Austin’s next wave of Latin Rockers.”

They began touring across Texas, with showcases in popular music festivals including Pachanga Latino Music Festival, Pecan Street Festival, Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair, Poteet Strawberry Festival, and El Camino Real Music Festival.

During SXSW 2014 they took home 3 Austin Music Award Nominations including Best Latin Rock Band, Best Latin Traditional Band, and Best New Act in Austin. Soon after, the group was ranked among the top 30 Latin Bands in Telemundo’s Buscando Mi Ritmo competition which searched for the best latin groups in the US. Later that year they released the new single and video “Pray For A Lover.”

In recognition of their accomplishments in music, the City of Austin and Mayor Lee Leffingwell proclaimed February 12, 2015 as “Son de Rey Day.”

Having shared the stage with some of the best in the music (A. B. Quintanilla and Los Kumbia All-Stars, Del Castillo, Ruben Ramos & The Mexican Revolution, Michael Salgado, and Dennis Quaid) Son de Rey continues to raise the bar for new wave Latin music with their dynamic performances, and unforgettable beats.

Son de Rey is currently producing their first full length album, and touring across Texas. The Ojos Azules - EP is available for download on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
