San Antonio-based indie record label Baby Grand Records officially launched with the release of “Hasta El Fin Luchare” from recording artist and executive producer Jerry Rodriguez featuring Chente Barrera on lead vocals, and produced by Mario Ortiz.
Baby Grand Records was formed by Ortiz, whose work is well-known in the Tejano Music and Latin music community. Most recently he produced the 2016 Latin Grammy nominated album, Un Amigo Tendras from Tejano superstar Jay Perez, and also his string arrangement work on “Hoy Me Toca Perder” from La Energia Norteña.
“Baby Grand Records has been a project that I’ve developing for a short while now and I’m blessed that we can launch our first promotional single from Jerry Rodriguez with my good friend Chente Barrera on vocals,” said Ortiz from his recording studio in San Antonio, Texas.
“‘Hasta El Fin Luchare’ is a Tejano keyboard and sax driven track that Tejano fans will enjoy with a short twist,” commented Rodriguez. “This track is actually a Spanish Christian song that will really catch audiences by surprise. It has a great message and something that the Tejano music listener will enjoy from beginning to end, plus with Chente’s powerhouse vocals which truly adds the icing on the cake.”
“Hasta el Fin Luchare” is part of full album release titled, Cerca De Ti…Mi Herencia Apostolicawith various guest artists and is expected to be released in late March of 2017.
“Expect more surprises and great tracks from different artists this year from Baby Grand Records,” stated Ortiz.
