René Solorio was born and raised in Guanajuato, México. Prior to Lamusica.com, René was a news host and reporter for shows on Televisa and TV Azteca in Mexico. He was also an editor for MIRA magazine in Los Angeles and New York and created the magazine concepts for Shape en Espanol for American Media, Inc.

René graduated with honors with a degree in Journalism from Carlos Septién García School. Additionally, he was granted a scholarship by the government of Spain's Ministry of Social Affairs to study in one the most prestigious universities there, Universidad Laboral de Gijón, Asturias, España in 1994.
In 2007, after proposing this program to Spanish Broadcasting System, René Solorio relocated to Miami, Florida to be in charge of the "Lamusica.com Live" project as the Editor Director of SBS.
