Genre-bending band The Mavericks have signed with APA for global representation in music touring, branding/marketing, and more. The group will be represented by APA’s senior vice president of concerts Akiko Rogers.
Last month, the group released their first-ever Spanish/Latin album, En Español, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop chart.
“We’re thrilled to be represented by Akiko Rogers and her team at APA,” commented lead singer/songwriter Raul Malo in making the announcement. “We feel this is the right opportunity and the right time to have all our business under one roof, and we look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
An eclectic group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries since their founding in Miami in 1989, the band’s music is now reaching an expanded global audience through even wider touring and their new En Espanol album. Produced by Malo and long-time collaborator Niko Bolas (who has worked with Neil Young, Prince, and Sheryl Crow), the lineup includes Paul Deakin on drums, as well as veterans Eddie Perez on lead guitar and Jerry Dale McFadden on keyboards. The band is also joined on both the album and on stage by their renowned Fantastic Five sidemen.
The Grammy, ACM and CMA award-winning band celebrated their 30th Anniversary in 2019 with a World Tour of over 120 shows.
