Alex Cuba is a Latin Grammy/Juno winner, singer-songwriter who is not tied to tradition; Alex 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, was immersed in music at a very young age, playing claves with his fathers band at 4 years old. Alex then went on to study guitar and bass and touring nationally and internationally. In 1999, Alex relocated to Canada where he began to sing and front his own musical project, Alex Cuba Band.
Over the course of 6 albums he has been nominated and won over 20 awards including 4 Latin Grammys and the Grammy nominations.

Alex has been promoting the music since February with a single out each month and enjoying every step of the process to share the music. So many people put in time and creative energy into the process including cowriters and featured artists, Kelvis Ochoa, Silvana Estrada, Leonel Garcia, Omara Portuondo, Alex Ferreira, Pablo Milanese and Fernando Osorio. The music, though produced and played by Alex and his instruments from home was engineered and mixed by John “Beetle” Bailey masterfully. The mastering was done by Harry Hess in Toronto. A special thank you goes to Erin Candela who made most of the artwork in a beautifully analogue fashion that matched the music seamlessly. The cover art truly is Sublime. Two videos were made, one with Those Canadians and another by Vistar Magazine creator, Robin Pedraja. A series of lyric videos with based on Erin Candela’s single artwork were created by Alpaca Media of Guadalajara, thanks you Sofia! Our wonderful industry partners at Fontana North and OneRPM have loved and supported the project and continue the work to let s many people know about the music. Our agents Julien and Todd at Paquin are making sure that the music will be seen in person around the country.
