Germán Montero is a vocalist from the Mexican state of Sinaloa who performs a style of banda music more or less typical of his region. Born on May 21, 1979, in the large coastal city of Los Mochis, he cites Vicente Fernández, Pedro Infante, and Joan Sebastían as major influences. Montero made his full-length album debut, Pensando en Ti, in 2008 on Univision. The song "Amantes Escondidos" was released as a single and became a hit, charting stateside on both Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks and Latin Regional Mexican Airplay tallies. Compréndeme followed in mid-2009, with a title track that charted high on the Mexican Regional list. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
