Â Emerging Pop Latin artist Luz Rios has signed an exclusive global music publishing agreement with Warner Chappell Music Inc. Gustavo Menendez, General Manager and Vice-President of A&R of Warner Chappell, a division of Warner Music Group, made the announcement.
ÂIÂm thrilled to have signed Luz to be part of the Warner Chappell Music family and we look forward to a long term relationship and her success as both singer and songwriter,Â said Menendez. Â IÂm honored to have Warner Chappell as my publishing company and especially thank the late Ellen Moraskie for listening to my music and Gustavo Menendez for his interest in my songs and for going the extra mile to assure a warm welcome to their home,Â Luz mentioned, ÂThey believed in my music and I strongly believe that Warner Chappell was the right choice and the place for my songs to be.Â
Luz Rios loves for music and songwriting came at an early age in her birthplace of Guerrero, Mexico where she performed in front of her relatives the tunes to her favorite TV programs or singers as well as improvising her own songs. During her teenage years, she moved to California where she resides, and started a band with her brothers filling in as drummer and lead singer and songwriter. Her desire to further her love for music has taken her through the paths of renowned vocal master Seth Riggs (Josh Groban, Barbra Streisand, Bette Midler, Natalie Cole, among others), who developed her singing strength a lot further. In her early 20Âs Luz Rios has come a long way from her childhood performances and has progressed both as a songwriter and a vocalist.
Luz plans on releasing her debut album in November, with a promotional single to be release in July on LCR Records. A summer U.S. and Mexico tour announcement will follow shortly.
