INTOCABLE is one of the most influential groups in the Tejano/Norteño music scene today. Their road to success began twenty years ago in Zapata,Texas, when friends Ricky Muñoz and René Martínez dreamed of bringing their songs to the world as they crafted a unique and extraordinary style of music which expertly fuses Tejano conjunto music, Norteño folk rhythms, pop ballads and rock.
After years of dedication and passion, the dream became an indisputable reality. With #1 hits such as “Robarte un Beso,” “Prometí,” “Te Amo (Para Siempre),” “Culpable Fui (Culpable Soy),” their latest “Tu Ausencia,” as well as fan favorites like “Dame Un Besito,” “Eres Mi Droga,” Enséñame a Olvidarte,” “Sueña,” “Contra Viento y Marea,” “Llueve,” “Arrepiéntete,” among others, INTOCABLE continues to entertain and delight audiences in both the United States and Mexico. Their songs are heard in radio stations throughout the American Continents and the band has performed live in world-renowned venues such as the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City, the Monterrey Arena in Mexico, and the Reliant Astrodome Stadium in Houston, with a historic record of more than 70,000 fans singing along and enjoying one of the best shows in the industry. And to top off an already exceptional career, INTOCABLE made history by being the first and so far only act of their genre to sing the halftime show at the Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins game at the famed AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.
Today, the group INTOCABLE is the standard bearer of “la música norteña.” Its achievements have been recognized with two GRAMMY Awards (in 2005 for their album “Íntimamente (Intimately)” and in 2011 for the album “Clásico (Classic),” seven Latin GRAMMY and multiple nominations, thirteen Premios Lo Nuestro, numerous Latin Billboards and two Billboard Regional Mexican Awards, as well as many other nominations, including one from the American Music Awards. And to top it off, in 2010 Billboard Magazine named them “Group of the Decade”, and they were honored by Billboard with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
Making history and pole vaulting through industry standards has become second nature to the group Intocable. On October 12th, 2015, Intocable made history, yet again, by streaming a showcase for the whole world, in which more than 22,000 people enjoyed a unique evening from the comfort of their homes. 100% of the proceeds were donated to St. Jude Hospital to help children affected with cancer; there the inception of #AyudaAAyudar was formed and will continue to do events to raise funds for this noble cause.
Continuing with the notion that “music is the best medicine for the soul”, On January 23rd 2016, Intocable humbly announced their partnership with St.Jude, a pledge first of its kind in the music industry. After witnessing firsthand the groundbreaking research done at St. Jude, Intocable knew they had to help the organization in any capacity possible. Today, their support will not only create awareness for the cause, but their pledge of support will contribute to assure that families pay for nothing and can focus on letting their child live.
2016 has proved to be revolutionary in the career of Intocable as they solidify their position as pioneers in the industry. In the prestigious SXSW musical festival, Intocable headlined SXSW 2016 SXAmericas All Latino Showcase, making Intocable the first Latino artist to headline this three-day series of charity beneficiary concert events. The group took over the largest SXSW stage, which attracted more than 50,000 attendees over the three-day period.
Always striving towards creating music that is relevant and transcends the boundaries of genre, national borders and even languages, INTOCABLE returned to the studio for their 19th career album. “Highway” referencing the journey of which is Intocable throughout almost three decades of exceptional music paying homage to the unique sound that has made them a mainstay and innovators of Tejano/Norteño music. With the rhythms, expert arrangements and the excellence and precision of a group of musicians at the top of their art form, this album will surely go down in history as one of the greats.
In this album, under Good I Music and Universal Music Group, INTOCABLE remained loyal to their team and used the same writers and musicians that have made then a mainstay in the industry since their first album in 1994. When selecting the songs that would ultimately make the cut to the album, Intocable chose 14 songs that truly resonated with the group while keeping the fans in mind. The track list speaks for itself featuring their first hit single off the album, “Tu Ausencia” along with “Me Faltas Tu”, “Quiereme (Amame)”, “Cuando Me Vi En Tus Ojos” and many many more.
Year after year, INTOCABLE demonstrates their passion for music and their desire to share their creations with a loyal audience that keeps growing with every word and every note.
