Ral Francisco Martnez-Malo Jr. (born August 7, 1965 in Miami, Florida), known professionally as Ral Malo, is an American singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer. He is the lead singer of country music band The Mavericks and the co-writer of many of their singles, as well as Rick Trevino's 2003 single "In My Dreams". After the disbanding of The Mavericks in the early 2000s, Malo pursued a solo career.[1] He has also participated from 2001 in the Los Super Seven supergroup. The Mavericks re-formed in 2012 and continue to tour extensively. In 2015 they won the Americana music award for duo/group of the year.


Malo was born in Miami to middle-class Cuban parents. He is married to Betty, and together they have three sons: Dino, Victor and Max (who sang with him on Marshmallow World & Other Holiday Favorites).

The Mavericks, with Malo, original drummer Paul Deakin, and bass guitarist Robert Reynolds, reunited in 2012-2013 for tours and a new album. Eddie Perez is the guitarist. He joined the group for the Live in Austin DVD.

On July 29, 2012, Malo sang The National Anthem at the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race in Indianapolis, IN.
