The Mexican artist had numerous jobs like being a salesman and photographer before embarking on the music scene. He relocated to the United States in 1966 to further support his family’s future. 

During the 1984 Olympics, he was able to earn a fair share by selling iconic buttons. And his income went in for the release of his first single, Voy a Bajarte Una Estrella, which he performed alongside a mariachi band. His albums “Two bottles of Mezcal” and “Amor de Cuatro Paredes” were highly favored by society. 

Then in 1985, he made his debut on the big screen with “La tumba del mojado.” Then it was followed by numerous successful movie projects Verdugo de Traidores (1986), Camino al inferno (1987), Tiempo Limite Para Morir (2017) and Entre Balas Viejas Y Loquera (2019). Pedro was also cast in various TV series, including El Fiscal de Hierro (1989), El Corrido de Los Perez (1992), and El Corrido de Los Perez (1992). 

In 1988, the singer managed to establish “Cintas Acuario“, his own record label. “Cintas Acurio” has grown to be the paramount Latin record company ever. Many aspiring musicians were produced in this company, such as Valentin Elizalde, Graciela Beltrán, Voces del Rancho, Rogelio Martinez, Chalino Sánchez, and Los Razos.
