Night Mother-

Alex Ruiz has been writing and performing since he can remember. As a teenager, he honed on writing and playing gospel on guitar and piano. He has since fronted many bands and has proven his longevity in the world of entertainment.

He has fronted and performed with the band Del Castillo since August of 2000, as one of the principal writers. Del Castillo has been touring extensively since 2004. The band primarily plays latin world fusion, and it has been received worldwide. Del Castillo is now on its tenth year and 7th album.

In February of 2008, Alex worked with Del Castillo and great artists such as: Joe Ely, Ray Benson/Asleep at the Wheel, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Raul Malo, and Carlene Carter among many, on the PBS special feature “The Outlaw Trail”. This special TV taping was filmed at the famous Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, and featured music that pioneered the spirit of the old west.

One of Alex’s favorite accomplishments was to be personally invited to write and perform for “Voices of a Grateful Nation”. This project was put forth by Charles Gallagher and Jamie Oldaker (former drummer of Eric Clapton) in support of the homecoming troops.

Within the last ten years he has recorded with artist such as Willie Nelson. The song recorded was “I Never Cared for You”, which has now become Willie Nelson’s favorite version. Most recently he has collaborated with Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Los Lonely Boys, Mana and many other well known artists on the compilation, “Project of Love”, in memory of Cesar Chavez and dedicated to the spirit of the labor workers from Central and South America.

Alex also fronts the famous movie soundtrack band, “Chingon”, with director/producer Robert Rodriguez. His voice, songs and persona have been featured in such films as: Once upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City, Kill Bill 2 and most recently, Machete.

The most current project, “The Night Mothers” is an Austin – Texas based all original Americana-Rock band. The band consists of Alex Ruiz, Albert Besteiro, Jeff Plankenhorn, and Elias Montemayor.
The latest album ‘Sunrise’ was recorded in Bloomington – Indiana at Airtime Studios. The album was produced by Gary Katz – famous for his work with Steely Dan.

Latin At Heart-

Latin at Heart has orchestrated a unique, dynamic combo that rocks the house in three languages -- Spanish, English, and the language of rock and roll. This is a super group of a band.

There could not be a more fitting name for the Austin band, Latin at Heart. This group of fine veteran musicians plays straight from the heart, fusing rock, folk, and Latin together effortlessly, making a heavenly, infectious sound all their own. Billy Wilson and team write well-crafted, super catchy tunes carried by lyrics that are realistic and true to life. LAH is the real deal.
