Making history before recording a note, Hilda Lamas became the first blues artist to be signed to Hacienda Records. Her debut CD, Latina Soul was released February 2009. The album is loaded with a blend of soul, blues, rock and R&B. Highlighting this 19 song CD are "Some Kind Of Wonderful" ("Maravilloso") which is presented in bi-lingual format and a soulful re-make of the Etta James classic "Damn Your Eyes". "Touch Me" and "Green Eyes" are two songs exemplifying Hilda's songwriting talent. Hilda co-wrote the first one with R&B performer Bigg Freeze, and the second features the talents of rapper Mr. Mike. "La Plaga," "Qué Guapo Estas" and a special Janis Joplin tribute entitled "Cry Baby/Piece of My Heart" stand out as fan favorites.
Born in 1983, Hilda's first solo performance was at the tender age of 4, in a Baptist Church in her hometown of Aransas Pass, Texas. She continued singing at many social events through her youth and teen years. While attending Texas A & M University, Hilda majored in music and studied voice with famed vocal coach Flicka Rahn. During her collage years, Hilda performed recitals not only as a vocalist, but also on piano and flute.
In 2002, Hilda auditioned and was hired as vocalist for a Corpus Christi blues band known as Phive, it was in those years that Hilda began to grow as a performer and was introduced to music as a profession. Her bubbly personality has made her a favorite in public circles, and Hilda also became a favorite to open sporting events with the singing of our National Anthem. As one who is always willing to perform at charities and benefits, Hilda has shared the stage with such national talents as Jay Leno and Clint Black. These benefits have helped raise substantial funds for worth causes of all kinds.
In May 2006, Hilda and her band performed on South Texas longest running TV show Domingo-Live, and had the honor of opening for Latin Grammy Winner Little Joe y La Familia. Closing 2006 in true Hilda fashion, Hilda was nominated for her very first award for “Best New Female Tejano Artist”.
2007 was exciting as Hilda was booked as the opening act for the world premiere of “Flower Power”, and her 2nd award nomination, this time for “Rising Female Star” at the 2007 Tejano Music Industry Awards. Making her second appearance on “Domingo Live” in March, Hilda Kicked off 2008 with her first 1 on the Mindviz Latin Charts with “Touch Me”, her collaboration with “The Bigg Freeze”.
Following the release of “Latina Soul”, Hilda entered into an agreement with Strictly Bizz Entertainment, best known for their instrumental role in the career of rap artist Mr. Mike, and filming began on season one of Hilda’s original web series “On The Road With Hilda Lamas”.
