La Primera Dama

Elsa Garcia, hailed as "La Primera Dama" is a revered Tejano singer and pioneering female producer from Houston, Texas. With the 1991 Grammy-nominated album "Simplemente" and numerous years of being the top nominee at the prestigious Tejano Music Awards for "Female Vocalist of the Year," "Female Entertainer of the Year,"  and "Song of the Year," Elsa earned the "Lifetime Achievement Award” in 2012 for the Tejano Music Awards and the 2023 "Lifetime Achievement Award" from the Guadalupe Awards.

Upon embarking on her own musical journey, Elsa defied industry norms by earning four consecutive Gold Albums/CDs – an unparalleled and unheard of feat, especially in a male-dominated industry and genre. She produced and arranged the music for her records while working with California producer Bob Gallarza.

When Tejano music began to garner real attention in 1990, Elsa Garcia was signed by Capitol EMI Music along with her group.  That same year, Elsa Garcia released her debut album with EMI "Simplemente,” which was a bestseller. She had singles such as "Déjame En Paz,” "No Sé,” and "Tú,” which she presented in all the local television programs. The album earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Album.


"JC" Almanza


"JC" Almanza (Vocals, percussion, songwriter, arrangements) from Houston, TX is an accomplished American Tejano/Regional Mexican singer who grew up on the east side of Houston and began singing when he was 10 years old. On a trip from Houston to Monterrey, Mexico, where his family is from, he began to sing along with his mother, the legendary Linda La Norteña, and they quickly realized that he could harmonize and had a vocal gift.


His first recording, at the age of 12, was with global artist Veronica Castro. While in his teens, he began his musical journey and joined his sister’s (Elsa Garcia) band. He recorded several Grammy nominated and multi award winning albums and then developed as a solo artist and released his solo album entitled “Premier”. He was featured on Bob Gallarza’s “En Familia” CD and sang alongside some of the greatest vocalists of our time. He is now part of the Victrola 5 Music Productions team and is releasing new music this year.

Demmi Garcia (Vocals, guitar, violin, flute, songwriter, arrangements) from Houston, TX is more than futurity, Demmi’s destiny was quite pre-determined. This heir to music royalty has already discovered her remarkable bloodline. The niece to Tejano music pioneer and four-time Grammy nominated star Elsa Garcia, Demmi has discovered the transformative power of music at an early age. “My grandma (Hermelinda Escamilla-Almanza whose stage name was Linda La Norteña) is well known not only in Mexico but across the United States as well and is a highly respected singer/songwriter.


She wrote several Regional Mexican/Tejano hits”, says Demmi. Demmi recently recorded a song which was written by her grandmother, Linda La Norteña, titled ‘Aventura De Mi Vida’ with Powerhouse Avizo and also recorded with multiple award winning artist Shelly Lares and two up and coming artists Monica Saldivar and Sonja De La Paz on a track entitled ‘Nada De Ti’, which have both charted in the Tejano and Regional genres. Just as her family before her, Demmi inherited her musical prowess from her family and released her debut single, ‘Con Tu Amor’ on May 21, 2021, followed by 'Mariposas' on November 22, 2021 written by her mother, Lin Almanza-Vasquez, and father Michael Garcia, and produced by Victrola 5 Productions.
