Biography of the Artist
Hector Montaner is the successor to the throne of Venezuelan pop music. Hector Montaner is the son of romantic balladeer Ricardo Montaner, who rose to fame in the 1980s for his sensuous, dramatic performances. Hector resembles his father in both appearance and musical ability. Hector was born in Maracaibo and studied music at some of Venezuela’s most renowned institutions from an early age. Hector continued his musical education and started laying roots for his solo career stateside after moving to Miami in the late 1990s, a creative and musical center in Latino culture.
Montaner’s professional ambition was fulfilled in 2004 when he recorded his debut solo album, Amor del Bueno. It’s no wonder that the album was highly received, given Ricardo’s role as collaborator, author, and executive producer. The title tune received a lot of airplay and peaked in many Latin categories on Billboard. Montaner’s second CD, due out in early 2007, is a collaboration with producer Andres Castro, who has worked with Carlos Vives, Jon Secada, and Ricky Martin, among others. The sophomore album is anticipated to be more rock-oriented in order to distinguish himself from his father’s ballad-heavy career. Montaner now resides in Miami Beach, Florida.
