Certain artists just seem to have an innate sense of what it takes to please an audience. The Tex-Mex
Kadillaks are one of those artists. Whether on stage or in the recording studio, the Kadillaks never give
less than a hundred percent, and it's that kind of dedicated work ethic combined with God-given talent
that have made them one of the most sought after Tex-Mex artists since they started their musical
journey in 2006.
They are described as the “Total Musical Package”; aside from their versatility to play any musical
genre, they have the right tradional and modern elements in their music that make them appealing to
both older and younger audiences.
The Kadillaks are currently riding the success of their debut CD “No Te Apartes De Mi”, an album that
instantly elevated them as leaders of the new generation in the Tex-Mex music; their debut single “No
Te Apartes De Mi”, reached the #1 spot on the Tejano Gold Countdown for the week of January 28 thru
February 3, 2007.
Prior to that, the Kadillaks were recognized by the Valley Choice Awards as the “Most Promising Band”
for 2006…….other accolades include, “Best Rising Star Group Award” at the 2007 Tejano Music Industry
Awards………“Mejor Revelacion Del Ano” at the 2007 Premios A La Musica Latina……….a “Mejor Nuevo
Artista” at the 2007 Premios de Tejas in Austin, TX; and most recently "Most Promising Band of the
Year" at the 2008 Tejano Music Awards.
But it’s not the industry accolades that spring to mind when fans think of Tex-Mex Kadillaks. It is their
humbleness, their way of being, and of course, the great songs and music that they deliver with pure
heart and soul.
The Kadillaks’ highly anticipated new album “Me Gustas Tu” is set for release on March 4, 2008 on the
Tex-Mex Records label. This is the second album for the young band that hails from the Rio Grande
For this album, the Kadillaks approached legendary songwriter Humberto “Beto” Ramon with a couple
of concepts that would make for great songs. Ramon had never been approached by an artist as far as
what to write about, nevertheless, he was up for the challenge. Ramon penned the songs “Por Ellos”,
“Hasta Dormido” and “Llevale Una Rosa”; in the latter, he joins the Kadillaks as the featured lead-
“It was an honor to work with a composer of his caliber”, says guitarist Isaac Bazan. “To bring him our
ideas and watch him compose was incredible, he is gifted”.
The members of the group are guitarist, Isaac Bazan; lead vocalist and keyboardist, Jesse Flores; lead
vocalist and guitarist, Fernando Salinas; bassist, Jaime Cano; accordionist, Guillermo “Gizmo” García
and drummer Ricardo Lerma.
