Though raised in Artemisa, an hour outside of Havana, Alex Cuba’s artistry is as far-flung as the place he has settled and lived for over fifteen years: Smithers, BC. His music at once incorporates his roots and is a unique amalgam of styles. Having collaborated with artists ranging from Jason Mraz to Ron Sexsmith and Nelly Furtado, he brings together melodies, popsoul hooks and rock chords in songs that may seem to bear little resemblance to traditional Cuban form.
A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist, Alex has amassed a steadily growing following among critics and fans. With over 20 awards and nominations to his name, including four Latin Grammys, two Juno Awards and three Grammy nominations.
Alex carries his Cuba within, incorporating subtle jazz influences gained from his early years as a bass player in his home country, and tasteful, sophisticated chords and lyrics expressing his poetry in an undeniably Cuban way. His growing body of work defines a unique musical place in the Latin diaspora.
Building on the 2017 Grammy nominated release Lo Unico Constante with its back to roots introspection, his latest collection of songs – Sublime – was released in September 2019, and features six duets with Latin American singers and songwriters.
