Ricky knew he was going to be a performer at an early age. Growing up listening to his family play and sing traditional Tejano music ignited a spark in the young artist. He began performing locally with a band at age 13, and performed in four other bands throughout his teen years. As a teen, Ricky was heavily influenced by Rap, Rock N’ Roll, and what he calls “trendy indie pop.” These influences can still be heard in his music, giving it an edge you don’t hear anywhere else.
Despite playing in punk rock bands and having several friends find success along that route, Ricky knew his heart was with country music and the songwriting that came with it. He moved to Austin, where he played acoustically until forming his band in 2016. With an all star band, Ricky is ready to take on Texas and beyond.
