Alex Cuba‘s new album Augua Del Pozo will be released September 22nd, featuring two additional unreleased tracks. For a guy who moved from smalltown Cuba to smalltown Canada, Alex Cuba thinks big. Cuban soul rocker Alex Cuba hails from Artemisa, Cuba (1 hour west of Havana) and resides in Smithers, B.C. (14 hours north of Vancouver). Musically, he lives everywhere in between. His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords subvert commonly held notions of what Cuban music is. He is a Juno-Award winner in Canada, recently topped the iTunes U.S. Latino charts has been touring the US for the last three years building a fan base and generating media recognition, one city at a time. With a heart as big as his retro ‘fro, Cuba takes it in stride and focuses on what he does best: crafting songs that cut through linguistic and cultural barriers like a machete through sugarcane.
