Lansing’s Ricky Valenz nominated for “Best New Male Artist” by TTMA

Lansing/San Antonio: In less than six months since his relocation to San Antonio from Lansing, Tejano music artist Ricky Valenz (Ricardo Villarreal) has been nominated for Best New Male Artist by the Texas Talent Musicians Association. Winners of the Tejano Music Awards (TMA) will be announced August 18, 2012.

Valenz is a Lansing Everett High School graduate.

Valenz’s first Tejano project, album titled “El Tiempo Ha Llegado,” is projected to be complete late summer 2012. It includes working with veteran Tejano producers Eddie Pérez, Mario Ortiz, Gabe Zavala, Valentino Maltos, and Rolando Revilla.

“I believe I made it this far by staying true to my dreams,” said Valenz. “I’m going to continue to move on my visions until my hearts stops, hopefully, others are inspired to do the same” Valenz continued.

His father, Roberto Villarreal, a now retired General Motors employee, was one of Michigan’s top guitarists. In the early 1970s, Roberto played with super band Latin Sounds, which showcased a variety of Funk, Latin Funk, and Tejano Music.

Ricky Valenz’s dedication and passion for music has taken him on a journey from Lansing, to San Antonio, the Tejano capital of the world. He has performed with several Tejano artists such as Stefani Montiel, La Calma, La Differencia, AT Boyz, and Cacy Savala. He has released 3 songs “Cosas Del Amor”, “No Te Puedo Olvidar” and “Me Abandonaste.”
