Alfonso "Tito" Auger Vega (born March 3, 1968, in Vega Alta, Puerto Rico) is a Puerto Rican musician best known for being the lead singer of one of Puerto Rico’s most important Rock Bands Fiel a la Vega. Auger is also the band's main songwriter, together with Ricky Laureano. Auger was born in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico, and grew up in the town of Vega Alta.
Fiel a la Vega quickly achieved great success in the island releasing several radio hits and winning several awards. As of 2007, the band has released four studio albums. In 2001, Auger and Laureano took time away from their band to create "Cancion para Vieques" (Song to Vieques), to protest the United States occupation of the Puerto Rican island of Vieques.
Aside of the band, Auger has contributed to other artists both performing and writing songs. Recently, he collaborated with popular Puerto Rican folk singer, Roy Brown, and American folk musician Tao Rodríguez-Seeger (from The Mammals), in an album called Que Vaya Bien. The group toured the island together promoting a song called "El Banquete de los Sánchez" written by Brown, and based on a poem by Luis Rafael Sánchez. Brown is one of Fiel a la Vega's main influences and they had performed together previously. Brown's most famous song, "Boricua en la Luna", has been covered by the band and is a staple in the band's live set.
