Jesus Ojeda is the frontman for Jesus Ojeda y Sus Parientes, the regional Mexican music group from Sinaloa, Mexico. The group's sound is based is in norteño, banda, and corrido -- particularly narcocorridos. Jesus Ojeda Sauceda was born in 1984 and began playing music at a young age; he played in many non-recording regional and local groups until 2008, when he began working in earnest as a songwriter and experienced success. Some of the artists who have recorded his songs include Saúl "El Jaguar", Conjunto Diamante Norteño, Banda Pequeños Musical, Fidel Rueda, El Bebeto, Apostadores, Jorge Santacruz, and Calibre 50. In 2010, he formed a band originally called Los Parientes: an all-guitar and vocal group with Thomas & German Hernandez. They split and Ojeda recruited guitarist and backing vocalist Joel Bojorquez and tuba player Luis Cardenas and changed the name. Their debut album, Estilo Italiano, was issued in 2012 to critical and commercial acclaim, garnering the band an instant fan base. Their follow-up, El Micho, was issued in 2012 and charted in the Top Ten of the Regional Mexican charts, while their self-titled third album landed in the Top Five. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi
