Paco Estrada
Paco Estrada
Honing his voice and songwriting as a teenager, Dallas native Paco Estrada, paved an early way to national major label success with rock band SouthFM (MCA/Geffen/Brando) in 2003. Currently five albums into his solo career, his indie music life now promotes a no management/no label policy. Covered by regional and world touring artists, his songwriting and voice continue to be infectious enough to connect with new listeners daily. Having co-written and collaborated with artists such as Blue October, Nothing More, Three Days Grace, Run Dmc, and Cure for Paranoia, Estrada's sound varies from album to album, but his passionate, honest, soulful voice, identifiable lyrical story telling, and melodic hooks always remain consistent.

"Paco Estrada's gift? ...Grace and Eloquence. With an array of influences, from Chris Cornell to Van Morrison, he is the kind of songwriter that not only leaves you unable to peg a descriptive summation of him, but upon listening, relinquishes the desire to do so. SouthFM's "Blue & Grey" is one of the heaviest rock songs I've ever heard. A song so quiet that the silence was deafening, heaved from vulnerable places most of us are afraid to expose." -Alan Ayo(97.1 the Eagle)
