“We are excited and grateful to have this opportunity to continue this 47-year-old legacy, institution going post-Tony ‘Hamm’ Guerrero and El Charro Negro,” Alfredo Antonio Guerrero told Tejano Nation.
This is the debut Tejano single for Lia G, who has spent most of her career recording and performing with Latin superstars Celia Cruz, Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Jon Secada, to name just a few. Now, the songstress is set to make her mark in Tejano music beginning with her version of “Cariño De Mis Cariños.”
“It takes me back to my childhood days of my mom always singing rancheras,” Lia G told Tejano Nation. “This song is very dear to my heart. I am thankful and grateful to be represented by three-time Grammy Award-nominated Tortilla Factory and its legacy of bringing all kinds of genre fusion into the Tejano world.”
The track was produced by 14-time Grammy Award-winning producer Gilbert Velasquez.
“I was so eager and honored to work with one of the greats and it was such a pleasure to record for him,” said Lia G. “This song turned out so pretty and it was because of his talent in being the arranger and producer. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did recording it.”
As a little girl, one of Lia’s big hero and inspiration was the late Latin music icon, Selena, as she began performing songs from the “Queen of Cumbia” as a little girl in Los Angeles, California. She studied dance and music along with many years of vocal lessons. She recorded songs as part of a very special project for Children Uniting Nations, a non-profit that is dedicated to reshaping the lives of at-risk and foster youth through positive mentoring and academic advocacy.
“Cariño de Mis Cariños” is available now at digital music platforms. Learn more about the next generation of Tortilla Factory at their official Facebook page, Alfredo Y Tortilla Factory.
