The Ledesma name has been in the music business for over thirty years, but
their love and talent has reached over three generations. From their humble beginnings in Wichita Falls Tx, to their well known popularity in San Antonio,
they have managed to touch and inspire thousands with their variety styles of music.
LaDezz is formed by two brothers, whom decided to come together and create
a powerhouse in todays music industry, Mark and David Ledesma. Born and raised
in north Texas, the two grew up in a very musical family. Their father, Manuel Ledesma, played guitar and sang with his brothers for many years and were well known throughout their community. Manuel had three sons, Mark, Richie, and David, who would eventually follow in their fathers footsteps. Mark started playing piano at the age of eight and it wasn't to long after that his father took notice and made him a member of the band. The first band Mark ever played with was called,
"Little Mark and Vision". Mark went on to form bands with his younger brother Richie and played in many ballrooms and dance halls gaining strong popularity. David Ledesma, the youngest of the brothers, set his talent on singing. He, like his
brothers, were raised on all types of music. From R&B to, Country, Soul, Tejano and Jazz. When David was fourteen he sang for his brothers for the first time and the rest was history. In the early stages of their careers the brothers Mark and David took on different paths but on occasion would come together and collaborate on many projects. They have produced, written, and added their vocal talents to many of todays top artists. Moving to San Antonio in the mid 90's they joined forces and added their smooth vocal stylings to the one and only "The Band". Which is the band who backs up "The Voice", Mr.Jay Perez. In 2000 Mark went from a background vocalist to the front man and joined "David Lee Garza Y Los Musicales".
Mark and DLG had a ten year run then in 2010 decided to part ways. David has sang and auditioned for the popular shows,"Americas Got Talent" and "The Voice".
He went on to sing lead and form his own band in 2011. Both have worked on countless projects and continue to this day to sit in with their good friends, Jay Perez and David Lee Garza. Now they come together to bring you the group….LaDezz. When asked how they would describe their music, they would simply reply "genuine". Their sound is truly original and they are masters of their craft.
