New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Salvador

March 20th, 2013

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Question: Do you like festive Latin rhythms and percussion in your music? How about a triumphant, jubilant horn section? If this sounds like the kind of music you enjoy, then look no further than “Make Some Noise,” the new project from Salvador. Salvador is a Latin-rock band from Texas, led by singer/guitarist Nic Gonzales. The band draws heavy influence from the Tex-Mex sound of their home state, and they also cite the Los Angeles band Los Lobos as a primary source of inspiration. Salvador seemingly burst upon the scene in 2000 with their breakthrough single “Lord, I Come Before You,” and they continue to make music for a strong fan base.Recently, on New Tunes at 9, I spoke to Nic Gonzales about the band’s longevity, strong musicianship, and their cover version of the song, “Higher Love,” (which was brought to his attention by his wife, singer/songwriter Jaci Velasquez). https://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/ For more on Salvador, go to http://salvadorlive.com/; you’ll find a link to buy “Make Some Noise” on iTunes and Amazon, plus the band’s facebook page which is currently running a contest called, “We come and perform for you.”
