Son of the famed Antonio Aguilar, Grammy award winner Pepe Aguilar followed in his father’s footsteps within the genres of traditional Mexican music of ranchera and mariachi and mixed it with modern pop influences which ultimately allowed him to make a name for himself. Pepe was born on August 7, 1968 and by the time he was just three, he made his debut as a singer alongside his father at a concert in Madison Square Garden.
While Pepe was growing up, his main interest of music was rock where his influences were The Who and Pink Floyd. During this period he was in a band called Equs and although the group was not together for a long period of time, this shaped him and led him to follow his roots and focus on Tejano music.
Pepe has won 4 Grammys and 4 Latin Grammys within the categories of Best Mexican-American Album and Best Ranchero Album, respectively. Some of Pepe’s recorded hits include "Recuerdame Bonito”, "Por Mujeres Como Tu”, and "Me Vas A Extrañar”.
