Ignacio Cano Andrés, aka Nacho Cano, (b. Madrid, February 26, 1963) is a Spanish arranger, composer, musician and record producer. Both he and his brother showed a precocious interest in music in their young lives. At 5, he began to play the Spanish guitar and at 12 he started his first band called “Prisma”, with Toti Arboles and Eduardo Benavente, both of whom would later make up the core of the sociocultural movement that took place in Spain after Franco’s death, known as the “Movida Madrileña”. After playing in several different bands in his early teens, Nacho formed “Mecano” with his brother Jose and his brother’s friend Ana Torroja. At 16, Nacho wrote “Hoy No Me Puede Levantar” (“I Can’t Get Up Today”). “Mecano” signed their first record deal with CBS, when Nacho was 17 years old. This first album smashed all sales records in Spain, selling 1,000,000 copies in three months.
