Raised in Artemisa, an hour outside of Havana, Alex Cuba’s artistry is as far-flung as the place he settled and has lived in for over ten years: Smithers, BC, 14 hours north of Vancouver, Canada. His music incorporates his roots in these vastly divergent places and is a unique amalgam of styles.
A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist who owns his masters and releases his music on his own label, Cuba has amassed a steadily growing following among critics and fans. With over 20 awards and nominations in his pocket including 4 Latin Grammys and two Junos Awards Alex remains a small town supporter and champion of originality as well as big hair.
