Thank you for being here. In each scenario I give my best, regardless of the size of my audience.
I started far from the sea, singing in the trucks in Mexico City when I was 17 years old and later I was a nomad traveling from city to city throughout Mexico and people gave me coins with which I paid for my food and that of my mother.
After my mother died, I had a very long journey full of storms, depressions and alcohol, but I never gave up, I hit rock bottom, rose from the ashes and gave my soul completely to music, in order to heal hearts like mine.
It has been many years of leaving my soul in my guitar and my voice in front of the microphone, and I hope that the privilege of singing to you never ends, because for me being on stage is not just my job, it is a dream come true, and I give my heart song by song, because it is a tribute that I want to pay you, a thank you that goes from me, to all of you, and for you to listen to me is a gift, a joy, where I have the opportunity to give all the best of myself, note by note and I hope to be able to continue to touch your kind hearts at every concert.
I am Cheko Ruiz, this is my story… this is my music.
