Spain's Nacho Vegas is the premier indie/folk-rocker of his generation, well known as both a solo artist and collaborator, having worked with a number of successful groups and artists. Born in Gijón in 1974, Vegas got his first taste of musical success with the group Eliminator Jr., emerging at the beginning of the '90s. Vegas was a founding member of a number of successful groups such as Los Planetas, Australian Blonde, and Manta Ray before electing to explore a solo career. That career was initiated by Vegas' solo debut record, Actos Inexplicables, released in 2001. He continued to earn a reputation as an innovator, writing material akin to the works of artists like Leonard Cohen and Will Oldham in a scene dominated by pop flavor.
