About The Mavericks

Fusing traditional country with a rich variety of rock, pop, and Latin influences, the Mavericks became one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful groups of the early '90s. Formed in Miami in 1989, they hit their stride with 1994's What a Crying Shame, a grand showcase for the rich, emotive vocals of Raul Malo and the band's eclectic but accessible approach. They edged away from country into a more distinctive fusion of Latin and pop flavors on 1998's Trampoline, a major success in the U.K. that opened up a large fan base overseas. Latter-day releases like In Time (2013) and Mono (2015) continued to show the trademarks of Malo's vocals and the group's expressive, creatively restless approach.
