Alex Cuba is a Grammy/Latin Grammy and Juno winning singer-songwriter/producer and musician, born Alexis Puentes in Artemisa, Cuba. He was immersed in music at a very young age, joining his father's (guitarist and teacher Valentin Puentes) group of 24 guitarists. Alex went on to study electric and upright bass, touring and recording nationally and internationally. His sound is the unique confluence of tradition and global influences in articulate arrangements that convey emotions through melody and lyric. In 2022 he won a Grammy for Best Latin Pop for Mendó as producer, artist and engineer.

His musical evolution for years was all about searching for the simplicity and soul in Cuban music - taking apart the complex arrangements, mixing it with North American influences, adopting the melodic simplicity of pop music, looking to Cuban folk traditions for inspiration - he's always exploring, always creating something fresh and new, and always, it seems, getting it just right.
