Grupo Solido, is a charting, award-winning norteño group comprised of three brothers (Ben, Marty, and Chikis) and three family friends. They formed in Rio Grande City, Texas. The band signed with Freddie Records (owned and run by five-time Grammy-winning artist and producer Freddie Martinez), and won a Latin Grammy in 2001 for their first album, Nadie Como Tu, followed by a Latin Grammy nomination in 2003 for Vuelve. Widely known for their romantic take on the norteño style, Solido has a unique touch that makes them easily distinguishable among the many groups that perform in this popular regional Mexican style.
Despite the early award, their later recordings have charted higher and most consistently. Starting with 2009's Que Importa, they have landed on the Top Latin Albums Chart six times. 2013's Inolvidable and 2016's Sentimientos both landed well within the Top 10, and four albums have landed on the Mexican Regional albums charts, including the 2016 recording that reached the top spot. ~ Evan C.
