Monico Cortez, Jr. (MC2), was born and raised in Houston, TX to a family of musicians, and began his love of music from the day he was born. As a young boy, he would attend band rehearsals at his grandmother’s house, where his father and grandfather would serve as future idols for young Monico who couldn’t wait to have his chance on stage! At the early age of 9, he began his musical career by learning to play keyboards for his father’s band, “Los Hermanos Cortez”. “Try Me” by La Mafia was the first song he learned. At age 12, Monico took to the mic, and began by singing the famous, “Don’t mess with my Toot-Toot”, by Rocking Sidney. Over the years, Monico continued to sing and play eyboards with his father’s band, until rightfully earning his spot alongside his father, in 1993, as the band’s Second Vocalist. Now, 20 years later, Monico has ventured on his own to explore a new style and sound, and follow his dream in Music. He has just released his Solo Debut Album “Moving On” under Cortez Records, in which he collaborates the traditional Tejano sounds along with some new arrangements and talent. Featured on his newly released album are Grammy award winner, Chente Barrera, Jaime De Anda (Los Chamacos), JR Ramos, and from Chicago Illinois, Adriana Guzman. Monico is a strong supporter and believer in Tejano Music, and will continue to contribute his talent for many years to come.
