Alex Cuba has so much music inside him, he apparently has to get it out as quickly as he can. Less than a year after releasing Agua de Pozo, the Caribbean musician is about to release a new, self-titled album.
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. Alex is on the vanguard, crafting a cross-cultural sound that mirrors his geographical journey. Not tied to tradition, this Cuban-Canadian prefers his vintage Gibson over el sencerro (cowbell) anytime.
