Captivating fans with his authenticity and idiosyncratic style Florida born singer, songwriter and live performer Ricky Valido best describes his music as his own take on modern traditional country. Blessed with a unique voice, Valido has captivated fans from all parts of the country. Ricky’s high energy shows have introduced audiences to a rattling and foot stomping hillbilly experience.
Ricky’s band “The Hialeah Hillbillies” were named after his hometown of Hialeah, Florida where he was born and raised. Since a child, Ricky has always been surrounded by strong family values. His grandparents settled in the United States from the island of Cuba in the late 1960s. Growing up, home was influenced by love, nature, and music.
Ricky’s great-grandmother bought him his first acoustic guitar around the age of eight. After graduating high school, Valido’s passion for wildlife inspired him to pursue a degree in environmental studies. Spending time in the great outdoors fueled Ricky’s songwriting.
Along the way Ricky has had the opportunity to open up for various national acts. He has toured his home state of Florida -- playing over 100 shows annually at local bars, dance halls, festivals and everything in between. As he states, “I play everywhere and anywhere I can! My job is to make people feel something.”
Ricky offers a promising future in country music. This fine country gentleman will be releasing his highly anticipated debut album later this year.
