Vincente Garcia: Artists To Watch 2011

Vincente Garcia

Genre: Latin

A protégé of Dominican bachata star Juan Luis Guerra, newcomer Vincente Garcia is a troubadour with strokes of tropical rhythm and lovely, catchy songs. After a soft release of his debut, "Melodrama," last October in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, EMI Latin is targeting the United States with an iTunes Single of the Week-slated for February or March-as well as a series of live shows and opening slots, among them a warm-up for Maroon 5 in Puerto Rico.
