“It was something I really couldn’t pass up. Definitely wanted to take myself to another level instead of just playing with bands as a musician,” Emanuel J tellsTejano Nation. “I came out here to San Antonio to be an artist so I took this opportunity as the doors open right here, I got to walk through it. It’s now or just try to do it on my own and it will be a lot harder that way. I’m very happy, very confident with signing with Q and it’s going to be an awesome experience, a great ride, and honestly I’m just looking forward to it.”

The singer, songwriter and musician moved to San Antonio from Pueblo, Colorado, over three years ago to make a career in Tejano music. His career includes stops withBTS Band,LaDezz, andLos Musicales.
