Cinco de Mayo just got a little hotter thanks to Sammy Arriaga!

The fiery Latin country artist will. be releasing his debut EP Banjos N’ Bongos (Acoustic Mixtape) on Friday, May 6th.

Featuring an intimate take on current single “Cold In Miami,” the six track EP puts Arriaga‘s outstanding vocals on full display, melding the bold rhythmic elements of his Latin heritage with infectious pop country melodies and proving he can deliver lyrics that strike right at the heart.

“The recording process for the ‘Acoustic Mixtape’ was surreal. We found so many different ways of mashing my Latin roots with pop country sounds to create a cool fusion that I hope fans jam out to.”

23 year-old Arriaga is already bringing the heat with debut single “Cold In Miami.” After teaching himself to play guitar at 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. Now, he’s captivating audiences nationwide as an opening act for Trace Adkins, LOCASH, Love and Theft, Chase Rice, Cassadee Pope and more.
