Alex Cuba

Alex Cuba
Grammy-winner Alex Cuba played an amazing show at Blue 5 in Roanoke Saturday night. For free.

This guy is The Next Big Thing in music, far as I am concerned. He is a masterful songwriter and has an ear for melody and hooks that will have the music world lining up to work with him for years.

From his bio:

Singer-songwriter 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 trademark sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and rock chords subtly subvert commonly held notions of what Cuban music is. Alex is on the vanguard, crafting a cross-cultural sound that mirrors his geographical journey. Not tied to tradition, this Cuban-Canadian prefers his vintage Gibson over el sencerro (cowbell) anytime.
