ABOUT YOUR TÍO
Continuing to provide a refreshing experience to listeners near and abroad, Tino shines in several facets in the multiverse that is the music industry. Whether he performs his most recent album COLOR FOOL with a 5-piece band, or entice the curious ear with genre-bending music, he is certain to prove himself as one of the most unique artists of the millennium.
As a Houston native, he has explored the music community by attending shows first as a young teen and later began performing at the age of 19. He first started his career under the name "MC I Ckan Ryme," an homage to his playful nature as he began to rap for fun at 13 years old. He grew a large following on Vine and sought an advantage to promote his music. He eventually signed up with a talent booking company for 2 years, until he decided to fully commit to finishing a BA at the University of Houston, while still pursuing music on his back. Since graduating, Uncle Tino has collaborated with plentiful artists locally and across the US, performed on many stages, has performed SXSW both officially and unofficially, has been recognized for community efforts in the LGBTQ+ community locally, and on a larger scale by Billboard Magazine, and has also been inducted into the GRAMMY Recording Academy as a voting member. He continues to blaze trails for himself, his community, his city, and encourages others to create their best work, & express themselves freely.
