Biography

Marty Robbins could have never known that when he sung the song bout being “Out in the West Texas Town of El Paso” not only did he sing bout the beautiful Mexican Girl…but that a band would spring up nearly 3 decades later in the town of El Paso to write another song about a Mexican girl…this time RASTA styling…

SUBROSA UNION began their rock “n” roll career in a garage on the east side of El Paso some 9 years ago. Three very young latino boys jamming together after watchin an Incubus concert the night before desiring to play their music in front of the masses. Mike Anaya, guitarist, vocalist and frontman, 22, bassist, Chris Paulos, 22 and the old man of the group drummer Paul Valenzuela, 25, began writing their own music and producing numerous freshman albums in home studios. Their live play in El Paso demonstrated to them that they had the proverbial “cohonejes”, mexican lingo for “hanging spherical objects” , to make the move to Austin Texas. Their fans in El Paso kept tellin them they were real good, their families supported their desires (I think the parents actually just wanted them to move outta the house after graduation) and the boys felt Austin was callin them for glory.

After arriving in Austin and hittin up the “6th Street “scene, the boys found a partner who was inspired by them and funded their first professionally produced album entitled “Looking Forward”. 2007 and early 2008 found the boys travelin and giggin a lot to market their newly produced album. In fact , the album received attention from the military folks at Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) who signed them to two major overseas tours for the troops.
