Pulido, a Sniper Records recording artist, is one of the leading artists in Latin Music. Since the release of his first album “Desvelado,” his voice, his style, and his music have made waves in the Grupero and Regional-Mexican genres of the U.S. and Mexico.
Considered by People en Español Magazine as one of the “Most Guapo” (Good Looking) Latin artists, Pulido quickly took the music industry by storm with his selling and drawing power. The ability to cross over musical boundaries as well as bridging the gap between two distinct cultures is one of the most impressive things Pulido has accomplished; all this is attributed to the fact that he can impact both Spanish and English speaking Latinos with his ability to speak both languages fluently.
Intocable, the award-winning band from Zapata, Texas, has set the tone for all Tejano bands that have followed in their storied, award-winning career.
Stampede is a six-piece outfit that is primed to make a push for the top of the Tejano market. With an energy level that compares to a “stampede,” the band’s live performances display its versatility by mixing covers with its cumbia and ranchera originals.
Formed in 1996 in the DFW Metroplex, the award-winning Stampede is known for its innovative, urban-Tejano sound that respects tradition.
Costumbre, also hails from Zapata, and is a five-man group that has amassed thousands of fans with their amazing songs and sound.
Shelly Lares is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer with a high-energy show that showcases her dynamic vocal talent. Lares first signed a record deal with San Antonio-based Manny Records and has toured the world ever since.
