Oscar Trevino III and his band, Grupo Potestad, have released their new LP album, “Madre Soltera.” The record is published by Christian record company Reloj Christian Records and features ten truly excellent songs in widely varied styles. The title track, “Madre Soltera” (Single Mother), is the most contemporary to the ear, with Trevino's rich vocals pressed through the ever popular auto-tune effect – although unlike many modern artists, Trevino needs auto-tune like the sky needs blue.

“Ojala” (Hopefully) contrasts against this with a traditional Mexican southwestern sound that is rarely performed anywhere, anymore, and is absolutely marvelous to hear. “El Sembrador” (The Sower) is a celebration of rural life, one of the album's most carefree moments. “Pobrecito Yo” (Poor Baby) is a lively dance track, and “No Te Desemparare” (Never Leave Thee) is a love song of the highest quality. “Madre Soltera” is sure to prove one of Trevino and Grupo Potestad's finest records.

Of his background, Trevino writes, “I grew up around great musicians and songwriters that pioneered the regional Norteno Mexican sound.” That means an awful lot in this era of copies of copies of copies. Trevino is anything but a copy, however. He writes about the journey that led him to his authentic sound: “I grew up in that small town you see in the movies, the one with the blinking light near the railroad tracks, and the two-lane highway that runs for miles. Growing up, I was influenced by all kinds of music, from motown [such as] the Jackson 5, to Vicente Fernandez and Tony Sauceda. Around town I heard the sounds of Merle Haggard and Randy Travis playing from juke boxes in the mom-and-pop cafes.”
It was country music that inspired Trevino to write his songs as stories, but it was Spanish music that helped him to stay true to his roots, to his culture. In addition, Trevino writes that it was motown that helped him learn personal freedom: “[It was] the motown sound and what I learned about the history of motown that inspired me to start my own independent label, to always think outside the box about how I created my music, and with what freedom I managed my art.”
“Madre Soltera” is not without a message to its listeners, either. “Each song takes you through a different life experience,” writes Trevino. “The album as a whole entices you to not give up, that things are never as bad as they look. Reach into the deepest part of you and your faith and find the greatness in you.”
“All-in-all God has been good to me,” he writes. “He has allowed me to accomplish my dreams, but I feel the best is yet to come. I hope that those that listen to my songs are inspired, that their outlook on life is changed, and that somehow I changed their lives for the better through music, the universal language.”
