Sixto Rodriguez

Real Name:
Sixto Diaz Rodriguez
Profile:
Born: 1942 Detroit, Michigan, USA.

Detroit-born Mexican-American guitarist and singer/songwriter.

Rodriguez released the solo album "Cold Fact" on the Sussex label in 1970. The blues-funk style of his overtly sociopolitical lyrics gained him little popularity in the US, where he once performed onstage with Hispanic activists the Brown Berets. However, his music found a resonance with a fan-base in South Africa, where he became somewhat of a cult legend. He also toured Australia with the band "Midnight Oil" during the 1980s.

Rodriguez is also known as "Sixto Rodriguez" and was once a Motown session musician. Works include: "Cold Fact", "Coming From Reality", "After The Fact" & "Sugarman: The Best Of Rodriguez".
