A fresh face upon the sinaloense music scene upon his arrival, Julio Chaidez is a regional Mexican singer whose breakthrough success in 2006 with the underground hit "A Cada Instante" led to a major-label recording opportunity.
Born in 1983 in Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, Chaidez signed a recording contract with the Universal Latino subsidiary Machete Music after the breakthrough success of "A Cada Instante," the original version of which is featured on the album 15 Éxitos: A Cada Instante (2006). His major-label debut album, En Cuerpo y Alma (2007), spawned one notable hit, "Total Ya Se Fue," but failed to match the success of "A Cada Instante." The follow-up album, Usted Dira (2008), was a different story, spawning the smash hit "El Amor en Carro," his first to break into the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks chart. Almost immediately, the live album En Vivo Desde Su Cuna Sinaloense (2008) was released by Machete Music in the wake of the success of "El Amor en Carro. " Also in 2008 Machete Music released the compilation albums 14 Éxitos: A Cada Instante and Frente a Frente: Las 2 Estrellas de la Sierra, the latter a budget-line two-fer also featuring the hits of El as de la Sierra. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
