A familiar face with a fresh sound has stepped out of the shadow of legend to carry forth his own family legacy.
Rick Fuentes, Grammy Award-winning accordionist, multi-instrumentalist, arranger and producer, struck out on his own after over 20 years alongside Tejano Music icon Ruben Ramos as an integral member of The Mexican Revolution to form the next generation of his father’s group, the legendary Brown Express.
With this new project, Rick has crafted a new signature sound, spreading his wings as bandleader, arranger and producer, vocalist and accordionist.
Backing him up on every song is the newest incarnation of The Brown Express, a group of multi-talented musicians filled with energy and desire to make great music with one of Tejano music’s hardest working and most dedicated professionals.
The self-titled debut album showcases the group’s versatility and talent as well as Fuentes’ impeccable production, featuring a wide variety of arrangements, rhythms and flavors of Tejano, Conjunto and Cumbia.
