Tejano icon Shelly Lares continues to showcase the next generation of Tejano stars with her LMD Productions and Shell Shock Records 3 label. “Little Miss Dynamite is releasing a new single each week during the month of February and this week it’s Tejano newcomer Alicia C. with “Te Digo Adios.” The mariachi track is the San Antonio singer’s second single produced by Lares.
It’s a return to her mariachi roots for Alicia C with the beautiful song written by José Rosario and Lares.
“The minute Shelly showed it to me I fell in love,” Alicia tells Tejano Nation. “It’s such a beautifully written song that I felt I had to work that much harder to show it the respect it deserves.”
Lares added, “Working with Alicia has been amazing. I’ve been working on getting her out of her comfort zone and showing her what her voice can truly do. Her EP will consist of amazing Mexican American music as well as bachata and tropical. This song was a song I wanted to give her to show her vocal dynamics and with a genre we know she was born to sing. Mariachi. We are so grateful to the fans for embracing her music.”
Alicia C grew up on the Texas border in Eagle Pass and is influenced by her parent’s own musical talent including sounds of cumbia, tropical, conjunto, norteño, and traditional mariachi.
“Since I was in my mom’s belly I have been surrounded by music. My mother used to perform and compete in local talent shows and festivals. I remember always being there when she rehearsed, or backstage as she performed,” she said. “And my dad was a musician for Las Estrellas de Piedras Negras and Los Sistematicos. On Sundays, seeing the viejitos dance at the plaza in Mexico as my dad and his band played.”
Alicia’s mission in music is to use her musical gift to reintroduce traditional mariachi vocals to younger generations and blend those sounds with new flavors and beats while exploring her own self-identity, which will be showcased in her upcoming EP.
“Te Digo Adios” from Alicia C is available on all digital music platforms.
