Ricky Laureano met Tito Auger
in the late 80s. Together they formed another band called Farenheitt
. The band recorded a single with the first writing collaborations of Auger and Laureano. Their first songs were titled "Maryann" and "I'd Been Looking". In 1990, Laureano and Auger decide to seriously pursue a career in music and they moved to the United States, specifically in New Jersey. Three months later, Auger's father died and he returned to Puerto Rico. Laureano stayed there and started playing with a band called Pure Myth
. Two years later, upon Auger's return they reunited again.
After returning to Puerto Rico, Laureano and Auger reunited with friends Jorge and Pedro Arraiza, with whom they had played before and formed Fiel a la Vega. The band quickly achieved great success in the island releasing several radio hits and winning several awards. As of 2019, the band has released five studio albums, three live albums, a compilation, and has performed hundreds of concerts through Puerto Rico and the United States. They have also won several awards.
Since 2010, the band has reduced their presentations, which has allowed Laureano to work on his own music. Through the last years, he has recorded and released numerous singles and EPs which he has made available through his own website. In 2017, Laureano recorded his first full-length album in which he sang and recorded all the instruments. The eponymous album features twelve songs, all written by Laureano.
