This week on TransCanada Music West, we welcome the first two-time Grammy nominated artist to ever appear on the program; the immensely talented Smithers, BC-based artist Alex Cuba.

Alex Cuba was born to the musical Puentes family in Artemisa, Cuba in 1974. His father, Valentin Puentes is a celebrated Cuban musician and music teacher. His twin brother Adonis is also a JUNO nominated Cuban-Canadian musician.

In 1995, Alex fell in love with Canada while touring the country with his father and brother. Soon after, he met his bride-to-be in Vancouver before making his new home in Smithers, BC, where he’s lived for over a decade.

Since becoming a Canadian, Alex has been embraced and celebrated in the Canuck music community. He’s collaborated with the likes of Nelly Furtado, Ron Sexsmith, and Alejandra Ribera, and David Myles, and scored 2 JUNO Awards. Alex will head to the Grammy Awards in LA next week, where his fifth record, Healer, is up for Best Latin Pop Album of the Year.

This week on the program, you’ll hear Alex perform songs from that record live at the Arden Theatre in St. Albert, supported by Jake Jenne on drums and backing vocals, Ian Olmstead on Bass and backing vocals, and Jose Sanches on percussion and backing vocals.
