A Grammy/Juno winner and a singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition, Alex Cuba sings in English and Spanish, and has a vast musical vision. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks, and powerful guitar riffs relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. Born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba, Alex was immersed in music at a very young age, joining his father’s group of 24 guitarists. Alex then went on to study electric and upright bass and touring and recording nationally and internationally. Relocating to Canada in 1999, Alex went on to record his solo debut album, "Humo de Tobaco" (produced by Martin Terefe), which earned him a Juno award for World Music Album of the Year. He comes to the Family Room with a new album, "Sublime." Alex is very much like nothing you've heard before, and we think you'll really like him.
