Mario De La Torres

Born and raised in Texas, My love of music started early in school/church choirs and orchestra band.
Later as a teen I began working with various Texas top 40 cover bands including Hidden Image, Albatross, and Shagnasty. Some highlights included Texas World Speedway, MTV, and opening for major label artists.
In the mid 90's I gave my life back to Jesus and began working with several North Texas music ministries including Tom Dooley's The Journey, 91.7 Power FM, and DayStar Christian television. He has also worked with Christian music artist Phillips Craig and Dean, MTV pop diva Mikaila, Big Methuselah, Ted Pearce, Dorothy Norwood, Cynthia Green, and Rohn Bailey. Highlights include the time I spend working under Dan Dean's Christ Temple music ministry. Thank you pastor Dan!
In 2005 I started to experiment with ambient, electronica, Latin music styles and recorded my first solo CD "Sojourn".
Subsequent releases followed over the next few years in the same genres as "Sojourn".
In 2010 I recorded my first vocal performance, a nice blues cut about a not so nice person, titled "Mean Woman Blues" which will be featured on my 2012 release along with a number of new blues tinged Latin songs.
I am also is a member of the The North Church music ministry in Carrollton, Texas and perform a couple of times a month in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
