“This Two-time GRAMMY winner is acknowledged as one of the best accordion players in the world and in this incredible new album, the highlight is on the first instrument he ever used, his voice. So be prepared to hear Sauceda in a new light.”
“Among the nominees for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards are several musicians with San Antonio ties. Joe Posada's “In the Pocket” and Sunny Sauceda y Todo Eso's “Homenaje a Mi Padre” are up for the Grammy for best Tejano album. The San Antonio-based El Guero y Su Banda Centenario are nominated for best banda album for its “Enamórate De Mi.” Read more: http://www.mysanantonio.com/default/article/Grammy-bound-868456.php#ixzz18nuCIn4u”
“Sunny Sauceda Nominated for 2010 Latin GRAMMY, for "Homenaje a Mi Padre" For two-time Grammy winner Sauceda, the nomination is especially sweet because his album consisted mostly of songs written by his 72-year-old father, Mario Alberto Sauceda. “It's really special,” he said. “This is my dad's album. It's not only part of Tejano history but of the Sauceda legacy. The concept was to pay homage to my father. It really wasn't intended for commercial release. It's a conceptual record.””
"One of the main things I like to do is collaborate with other artists and songwriters," Sauceda said. "I like working with a variety of musicians. I am not limited to just Tejano."
"When he joined them, Sunny transcended Grupo Vida. He took their sound to a whole different playing field," said Carlos Alvarez, ARC Discos promotions representative. "Sunny still has that power and dynamic energy on his albums, but you can also still hear a raw conjunto feel."
"Sunny has positioned himself as a top solo artist. He's made some risky career moves to help him stand out," said DJ "Jumpin'" Jess.
"He is definitely a breakout artist, and his Grammys can attest to that. He's also a professional. His membership in the Texas Grammys and the Academy of Tejano Music tells you he is serious about his craft."
