Combining world-class musicianship and originality, the Tijerina Acoustic Trio delivers a unique rock-blues sound both in the recording studio and during live shows. Front man Todd Tijerina is a singer, songwriter and guitarist specializing in a fierce brand of cutting-edge blues. Infused with funk, rock and jazz elements, his musical style is described as “powerful and expressive.” The band’s other two members, Jim Magnarella on drums and background vocals and Mike Olivola on bass, have toured internationally throughout their careers and recorded with blues, funk, Latin, rock and jazz ensembles. The Tijerina Acoustic Trio was nominated for four New Mexico Music Awards in 2011 and won “Blues Song of the Year” for its original song, “Nothin’ Like the Blues.” The band has also shared the stage with well-known artists including Kansas, Canned Heat, Coco Montoya and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
