Singer-songwriter Alex Cuba hails from Artemisa, Cuba and resides in Smithers, B.C. Musically he lives everywhere in between. His trademark sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords subtly subvert commonly held notions of what Cuban music is. It’s a sound that is winning him fans and awards. Alex has received two JUNOs, a SOCAN award in Canada, a Latin Grammy Award in 2010 for Best New Artist, and was nominated for a 2011 Grammy in the Best Latin Pop Album category. Alex also took home a 2011 BMI Latin Award for his songwriting on Nelly Furtado’s number one Spanish hit “Manos Al Aire.”

“Roaring with guitar licks, underpinned by a lacy and oblique but steely Cuban rhythmic structure, Alex Cuba’s music supplied proverbial tropical heat in thrillingly unexpected ways.”—Jordan Levin, Miami Herald
