Singer / Songwriter
Al Lopez is a singer songwriter born in Jackson, MI, He has been into music his whole life. Beginning at the age of 8 years old when he first learned to play guitar from his uncles Ramiro and Donald Lopez. He has performed in bands since he was 12 years old. Al formed his first band when he was 15 years old. A graduate of Charlotte High School in Charlotte, MI , Al formed his first band with some classmates and played to parties all over the Charlotte area.
Later around the late 80's Al moved to Holt, MI and formed a rock band called "Mainline" that performed in clubs all over Lansing, and the state of Michigan. We began going into a variety of music including country. The band continued playing for about 5 years, becoming one of the best bands in the area. It wasn't until October of 1993 when Al and his band played at a abreast cancer benefit at the mall when his true talents were realized by a songwriter from Nashville that heard Al and said "You should do this for a living" and Al was suddenly launched into his country music career.
Al wrote around 150 songs and went to Nashville to try to get noticed by the major labels. This however was an extremely difficult road and he was soon shown, that the music business is just that, business. He went back home and decided if he couldn't open Music Row's eyes then I'll do what it takes to draw them to me. So he formed his own record label called "Renegade Records" in 1994 with help from friends, and produced his own cd in Nashville, TN with his "Macinaw Bandits"which included: Dave Vincent, Troy Crosslan, Bernie Cook, Pete Schultz, and Tim Alward .
Al and his band had great success performing all over the country and achieving chart position in all the independent charts in Cashbox Magazine, Nashville Tracker, as well as, the Gavin Report including a #1 hit called "Smooth Runnin Engine" the title cut of his debut cd. Al was also nominated at the independent music awards with his band in Nashville, Tn as best New Male Vocalist of the year and Group of the year. Al has done television apperances on TNN's "Prime Time Country" and "Be a Star". As well as many local TV spots.
Later Al wrote a 3 song country music cd for the Lansing Lugnuts minor league baseball team. He also wrote a 3 song country cd for the Cleveland Browns called Help wanted when they lost there team to Baltimore. Al continued writing songs and wrote the national ad campaign theme song for the "Childrens Miracle Network".
In 1996, Al decided to pull back from performing as much and concentrated on his label. He then signed JT Blanton. This was his first step in the artist development stage of the label.
Al began to promote and market his new project creating a new network of business friends. Al realized this could be the best of both worlds. He studied the business carefully and was ready for the next step of broadening the label to another type of music, rock.
In 2004 Renegade Records is celebrating it's 10th anniversary and just signed it's new artist to the label "Brew". The first full blown project for Renegade in 7 years. "This will be a great way to celebrate or anniversary with the release of a great group of artist" Al said.
