Tierra, the band named "Best R&B Vocal Group" by four leading magazines
including Billboard. They started their career in East Los Angeles with a blend of
rock, pop, jazz, R&B and salsa. The result was a Latin R&B rhythm, which
produced classics like "Together", "Gonna Find Her", "Memories" and "Zoot
Suit Boogie". The band's quarter century commitment shows a dedication that
can only be understood by listening to their smooth and soulful sounds.
Tierra was the first Latino band to have four songs on the national chart and two
simultaneously in the Top 100. They have performed in such prestigious shows
such as Carnegie Hall, The American Music Awards, American Bandstand, and
The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
Tierra is widely known to have played a role in opening doors for other Latino
and non-latino superstars of today, including comedian Paul Rodriguez, Arsenio
Hall, Sheila E., Gloria Estefan, Los Lobos, Latino comic of the year, Rudy
Moreno, and more.
Leader of the band, Rudy Salas holds the foundation of the group strong as he
leads TIERRA into the new millennium. With their new CD, "Welcome to Cafe
East L.A.", a bilingual album “Two Worlds/Dos Mundos”, and a recently released
Greatest Hits album, this is one band that will not stop!
