The world of Tejano Music is celebrating with the arrival of Linna Martinez and her new album titled “Enamorada” or “Falling In Love”. The people of Texas, Idaho, and the world cannot get enough of Linna Martinez and her Idaho Flavored Tejano Music.
What is the driving force behind Linna Martinez? The answers lie in her life story and review of her musical career.
Linna Martinez was born in Blackfoot, Idaho on August 3, 1980 to parents from South Texas. The grandparents of Miss Martinez are also from South Texas. The basis for her music originated in the roots of southern Texas.
Ms. Martinez excelled in everything she put her mind into and decided that the time was ripe for a musical career. Linna Martinez recorded her first album titled “Sin Explicacion” or “Without Explanation” at the age of 15 in the town of Edinberg, Texas.
She was inspired after the recording to return to Idaho and form the band known as “Estilo”. Linna Martinez and the band toured Idaho and played at different venues within the state.
Linna Martinez was able to capitalize on her success in Idaho and return to record her second album titled “Corazoncito” or “Little Heart”. She recorded her second album in San Antonio, Texas in the year 2004.
The album was another success with Linna Martinez and Estilo performing in different venues around San Antonio, Texas. Ms. Martinez even performed at the TTMA Fan Fair Performance with people praising her Idaho flavored Tejano Music.
While “Corazoncito” was a great success, something was missing in the life and times of Linna Martinez. Ms. Martinez took time off to become a mother and raise a family.
In the year 2011, Linna Martinez signed a record deal with Q-Vo Records which is owned by the famed Tejano artist Chente Barrera. Ms. Martinez went to work recording her latest album “Enamorada”. The CD “Enamorada” became another huge success for Linna Martinez.
I had the pleasure and honor of listening to “Enamorada” and the songs are great. The song “Cada Dia Te Extrano Mas” or “Every Day I Miss You” is a gem which deals with separation and how it brings together the hearts of those who suffer from it.
Linna Martinez is one of the greatest musicians in the world who deserves praise for her music. Linna Martinez via her music and personality has earned the title of Queen of Idaho Tejano Music.
