Luz Rios

Latin pop singer-songwriter Luz Ríos is making an indelible mark on the music scene with the release of her latest work “Aire.” From Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, Luz has been hailed as “one of the best voices I’ve heard in a very long time” by none other than Mexican icon singer-songwriter Joan Sebástian. Joan’s admiration of Luz’s work is such that he agreed to record a duet with her on the single “Aire,” a rare exception for this legendary songwriter who only records his own compositions.

“Aire” has earned Luz two Latin Billboard Music nominations for “Hot Latin Song of the Year ? Vocal Event” and “Regional Mexican Airplay Song of the Year / Female Category.” The winners will be announced during an event on April 23, 2009 to be broadcast live on Telemundo.

Radio’s embrace of “Aire” has been significant: The song made a Hot Shot debut at No. 40 on Billboard’s Latin Pop chart, and remains steady. In R&R, “Aire” spent 16 weeks on the Regional Mexican chart, and 7 weeks in Latin Pop. With three prior CDs under her belt ? “Ayer, Hoy y Siempre” (1998), “De Mi Corazón” (2004) and “Luz Ríos” (2005) ? Luz says “Aire” is her most complete, versatile and personal work to date. “A Latin pop album with a rock edge and acoustic instrumentation and arrangements that move you into the songs,” she says, “from intimate ballads that have heart felt lyrics to songs of love and despair.”

U.S and Mexico fans will have a chance to see Luz perform live and experience her exceptional talent when she joins Joan Sebástian’s tour this spring. Beyond the music, Luz is committed to contributing to the Latino community. She has performed for charity events like Loma Linda Hospital, the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Musicares Hurricane Katrina Relief Concert and the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles. And community events like Chivas USA, City of Huntington Park Parade and the Mexican Independence Parade Los Angeles.
