Eclectic, High-Energy Latin Rock to Open San Luis Valley Roots Festival

Sol Fire

With a unique sound that merges rock with pop, r&b and Latin influences, Sol Fire will open the inaugural San Luis Valley Roots Festival Fri., June 15 at 7pm, at the baseball field in Alamosa’s Cole Park. Sol Fire is a rock group formed in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The band is led by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Amado Abeyta and his brother, guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Buddy Abeyta. Their musical influences include the Beatles, Oasis, Stevie Wonder, Mána, Prince, the English Beat and Terence Trent D’arby.

Beginning their musical careers at an early age, the brothers formed Sol Fire in 2002. Two years later they entered the studio and released their debut album. Since then, Sol Fire has become a house-hold name in Santa Fe and New Mexico. After releasing their second studio album, “Third Floor Serenade,” in the summer 2006, the buzz about the band brought them to new heights in the New Mexico music scene. That year they were chosen to be showcased in New Mexico Lottery Powerball commercials and ad campaigns. In 2007, their original song, “She’s Got,” was chosen for the national compilation album “The After After Party” sponsored by McDonald’s and Coca-Cola. Sol Fire also co-wrote and produced a new song for a United Way of Central New Mexico spot, and their song, “I Don’t Like,” was used in a City of Santa Fe water conservation commercial. (more…)
