Fuentes, the Grammy Award-winning accordionist, arranger and producer, is striking out on his own after over 20 years alongside Tejano 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, Fuentes will craft a new signature sound, spreading his wings as bandleader, arranger and producer, vocalist and accordionist.
Backing him up on every track is the newest incarnation of The Brown Express, a group of gifted musicians filled with energy and desire to make great music with one of Tejano music’s hardest working, most dedicated and talented professionals.
The self-titled debut album showcases the band’s versatility and talent, as well as Fuentes’ impeccable production, featuring a wide variety of arrangements, rhythms and flavors of Tejano, Conjunto, and Cumbia.
The first single from the album is “La Morenita,” a cumbia track that will definitely get you moving on the dance floor.
