If you tune in to a regional Mexican radio station, it is almost a guarantee that no more than an hour will go by before a Horacio Palencia song is aired. It might not be one interpreted by him, but the beautiful lyrics he writes and the unmistakable style he has defined will have his name from beginning to end.
During the last couple of years, Palencia has become one of the most popular, talented, and sought-after songwriters in the Regional Mexican genre.
Artists like La Arrolladora Banda El Limón, Banda El Recodo, Fidel Rueda, Banda Los Recoditos, Los Huracanes del Norte, and the late Chavela Vargas have recorded his songs, and the list continues to grow.
The Sinaloa-born artist just received his fourth consecutive nomination as 'Songwriter of the Year' to the Billboard Latin Music Awards, having won the past two years, but he is also making his mark as a singer today.
Palencia is about to release the third single off of his debut album, 'Mis Canciones, Ustedes y Yo' and he says he is very happy with the response he has received so far.
