Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana but raised between the bayou and Mexico, sisters Hanna Nicole Pérez Mosa, 29, and Ashley Grace Pérez Mosa, 27 are true Latin pop originals. Influenced by country stars like Shania Twain and Carrie Underwood, the Sony Music Mexico artists write and sing captivating lyrical narratives, mostly in Spanish.
“We’re storytellers,” says Hanna. In the last decade, they’ve charted four singles on Hot Latin Songs, although their biggest success has been in Mexico. Their new live album Primera Fila reached No. 1 in that country’s AMPROFON sales chart and has spent 20 weeks on the chart.
The sisters hope the live set will be a passport to wider success and recently signed with CAA as their booking agent.
The Year Ahead: A coaching stint on new 10-week music reality show “Me pongo de pie,” which will air on Televisa in Mexico and Univision in the U.S.
In their words: “When we looked for a label in Mexico, we’d sing country music in Spanish and were told it would never work,” says Hanna. “Sony signed us because of the challenge.”
At the conference: Will participate in “The Divas Panel” on April 28.
