Cuban Country Singer/Songwriter Abuzz For “Cold in Miami”

Nashville, TN (March 9, 2016) – Latium Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of country newcomer Sammy Arriaga to their LA-based Latium Records, which is a venture with RCA Records and Sony Music International. The 23-year old, Miami-born Cuban singer/songwriter is quickly becoming known for his unique pop country sound that melds the bold rhythmic elements of his Latin heritage with infectious melodies.

“We pride ourselves on crossing both worlds of pop and Latin, and have been on the search for the country singer that can live and perform in both worlds,” said Latium Entertainment’s CEO Charles Chavez, whose company was longtime manager for global superstar Pitbull and is also home to MAGIC!, Kat Dahlia and Shy Carter. “One day Sammy Arriaga walked in my office to pitch writing Spanish songs and told me he was a country singer living in Nashville. He played the guitar and sang, and I got on the next plane to Nashville to take him to Sony. Get ready world!”

Arriaga is already bringing the heat with his latest single “Cold in Miami,” that he co-wrote with Aaron Scherz and James Slater. Produced by Wondrboy, the reflective song about lost love highlights his suave vocals and was recently featured in iHeartCountry's Digital Integration Program. Media is raving about the newcomer with the Miami Herald noting him as “the next artist to emerge on the Country music scene from Miami since The Mavericks” and CMT selecting him for their 2016 “Artist Discovery” campaign.

Building a strong fan base, Arriaga has been playing shows nationwide and previously shared the stage with Trace Adkins, Love and Theft, Chase Rice, Cassadee Pope and more. He is gearing up to join LOCASH on select dates, including Knoxville, TN (3/12) and Springfield, IL (3/26).

Singing and playing guitar ever since the age of 14, Arriaga made the move to Nashville in 2011, when he plugged the famed Tootsies Orchid Lounge into his GPS and drove 998 miles straight to Music City.

Sammy Arriaga is managed by Latium Entertainment and represented by publicity agency Sweet Talk Publicity. He is also signed to Sony/ATV as a songwriter.
