From an early age Rick Orozco had music in his veins. He found his way to the stage as a teenager, and soon after found his way to Nashville, TN where he landed a major recording contract with Arista Records. He continued his pursuit of music in his writing while attending college at Belmont University in Nashville. Rick went to school in the morning while recording his debut album, and at the same time was in the school of dreams in the afternoon while writing with many of his writing heroes. He composed and performed many of his songs on his two Arista releases, but also found a home for many of his other compositions as other artists began to recognize his gift of writing. He penned songs for Rick Trevino, Emilio Navaira, Mark Chestnutt, Bobby Pulido, The Bellamy Brothers, Gabe Garcia, Sunny Sauceda, Chente Barrera, Michael Salgado, Sara Evans, and many more, and his songs even found their way onto the charts in Central and South America with recordings by Gian & Giovanni and Chrystian Y Ralf out of Brazil. He travelled the world taking his music to Europe and Asia, and also took his music to our troops around the world with many USO Tours in honor of our armed forces.
Rick began his recording career recording a Christmas album with his heroes Freddy Fender and Flaco Jimenez with the album, "A Tejano Country Christmas", recorded in San Marcos, TX. He soon after recorded once again in San Antonio, TX along with the legend Michael Martin Murphy for a live album for Warner Brothers Records. It is ironic that he began his recording career in Texas right after moving to Nashville as he was flown right back to Texas to record his first two country recordings. His next two recordings would of course be in Nashville, TN and again the irony occurs as his first recording was in Spanish recorded right on Music Row. His first release, "Buscando Una Estrella", produced by Mark Bright, earned rave reviews and placed him at the top of the charts all over Texas. The beautiful tribute to the late Selena in "Rosa Tejana" showed a heartfelt sorrow captured in a song. The album would hit in Central and South America, and led to two chart toppers out of Brazil.
Today Rick produces music for many country and Latin music stars. He has also delved into the production of film, Movie scoring, opened his own record label, Lyric Rain Records, and maintains his publishing company out of Nashville, TN. With the release of This Is My Country- Twin Fiddles and Accordion people will get a glimpse of his musical genius.
