Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

LOS LONELY BOYS

Sacred

2006-07-19

The three Garza brothers of Los Lonely Boys are still standing strong with their second album. Lead singer, Henry, likens the trio's music to a burrito or mosaic. "It's just a mixture of everything we've learned: conjunto music from our father, Richie Valens, Stevie Ray, Willie. All the music that we've gathered... Fats Domino, Santana, Skynyrd." "On 'Sacred', Los Lonely Boys sound so comfortable and at ease, it seems as if every song just rolled off their fingers and out their mouths." - Guitar World Willie Nelson guest sings on track 11. 4. "te quiero baby all night long" - Ben Kleyn
