Miguel De Hoyos

Classical/Latin/Flamenco Guitar

Miguel De Hoyos began guitar lessons at the age of 11 in his hometown of Monterrey, Mexico. At the age of 13, he entered Muevo Leon State University, studying toward a degree in classical guitar. Three years later, De Hoyos gave his first classical guitar recital, performing for over a thousand people as an opening to a university’s graduation ceremony. Around the same time, De Hoyos began studying the style of Paco De Lucia, a well-known Spanish guitarist who inspired De Hoyos to pursue new, different styles available to him as a budding guitarist.

By 1980, De Hoyos was recognized and selected as the number one choice guitarist by artists and singers visiting Monterrey, and for the next 16 years he performed with some of Mexico’s premier talents including Octavio Paz and Raul Velasco. He performed for First Lady, Diana Laura Colossio, as well as government officials, state governors, senators, and diplomats. In 1983, De Hoyos completed post-university studies in Advanced Classical Performing at Universidad Regiomontana.

In 1990, Miguel De Hoyos founded a band, La Guitarra Por El Mundo, comprised of three guitarists, bass, and percussion, and booked the group throughout Europe. The group performed 16 concerts in Romania—by invitation from the Romanian government—as part of a diplomatic cultural exchange program. In their time together, La Guitarra Por El Mundo released two recordings, La Guitarra Por El Mundo and String Five.

After relocating to Rosarito Beach, B.C.S, Mexico in 1996, De Hoyos began to be influenced by American pop music through Chet Atkins and Les Paul. Combining these new sounds with his traditional Mexican/Spanish guitar style, De Hoyos was soon recognized as an innovator with a unique approach to the guitar. This new music inspired De Hoyos to create two recordings, Interludio for solo guitar and Romance, which features De Hoyos’s vocal talent as well as his guitar playing. Between 1999 and 2003, De Hoyos recorded and released three more recordings, Sevilla Suite, Celebration (with original compositions), and Serenade Romantica, another guitar/vocal recording encouraged by his many fans in the area.

In 2007, De Hoyos met American violin sensation Alex DePue, and together they formed DePue/DeHoyos. The duo has performed throughout Mexico and the United States, and has released one recording, Underground Whispers. Their second recording, Twisted Strings is expected to be released later this year (2009).

With DePue, De Hoyos served as a staff member in 2009 for the National Oldtime Fiddle Contest, teaching master classes and performing for the students and NOTFC audiences. The duo will solo with the Ocean City Pops Orchestra in New Jersey this August. Immediately following that performance, De Hoyos travels to Ahrenshoop, Germany to kick off a 37-city concert tour throughout the country.

    I love this moment between brothers. ❤️ Alex and his unabashed laughter was one of my favorite things. Bowling Green, Ohio friends and surrounding areas, can you please leave a comment so I can remember who we have? I am looking for some local help with some details for the hometown memorial coming up in one month now, AS WELL AS the Tribute concert we are organizing on his birthday, July 16th! Nothing back breaking, and no pressure, but I would appreciate running some things by those who are in the area. Much love, thank you! -Mrs. DePue ... See MoreSee Less

    A fun relaxing night of music, under a Palapa on the sea of Cortez, in the beautiful peaceful little town of San Felipe. Alex jamming with Jake Allen whom he believes is the next great of the greats! Do a favor to Alex, follow Jake's page and just... enjoy! The music gets deeper with every listen. For now, enjoy this invigorating rendition of "Eleanor Rigby". ❤️🎶 - Mrs. #AlexDePue #TheFiddler #JakeAllenMusic ... See MoreSee Less

    Mrs. Fiddler here - I was able to attend one day of NAMM, and got there pretty late, about an hour before they closed for the day, and the first and only person I happened to run into as we entered the convention floor was Alex's band mate in the Steve Vai band, Bassist Bryan Beller! He had been there doing a signing earlier that day, and I had no idea. He still tours with Joe Satriani, The Aristocrats and more, and is just an all around bad mamajama at what he does!He was still there with his girlfriend and her brother, and we all got to chat a little bit. What a crazy bit of synchronicity. Alex would have been just tickled, I wish so much that he had been there. ❤️ Made me smile, though. Great to meet you, Bryan! (Well, again, but I doubt you would remember me at the Wiltern meet and greet or the "Where the Wild Things Are" premiere. Many moons ago. 😊)#AlexDePue #LegacyLivesOn #ModernPaganini ...
