Through years of touring around the world, across Canada, & collaborating with Juno Award-winning performers, Eliana Cuevas has grown into an accomplished singer-songwriter & bandleader with unlimited colours in her compositional & lyrical palette. Among her honours are the National Jazz Award for Latin Jazz Artist of the Year (2009), a nomination for Best World Music Solo Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2008), a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best World Music Artist (2007), a nomination for Best Latin Song (‘Llegó from ESPEJO) at the Independent Music Awards (2014), an Independent Music Award for Best Latin Album for ESPEJO (2014) & a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best World Music Artist (2014).
Born to a musical family in Venezuela, Cuevas grew up to the sounds of salsa, pop & Brazilian music, writing her first song by the age of 9. After moving to Toronto, she began to play the city’s top jazz clubs despite being underage. Singing for Brazilian, flamenco & jazz ensembles influenced her eclectic sound on her debut EP Cohesión (2001) and first two albums, Ventura (2004) and Vidas (2007). Her engaging voice & songwriting on topics from adventure to forgiveness wowed the local music scene, hailing Cuevas as “Canada’s emerging Latin music queen” (680 News).
Acclaim spread internationally as Cuevas played festivals & theatres from Venezuela to Germany. Following her second album Vidas (2007), Minor Music Records released in Europe an anthology of her music: Luna Llena (2009). She has performed with Juno-winning Latin artists Alex Cuba, Jesse Cook & Jane Bunnett. Cuevas also continues to collaborate with diverse ensembles including Caribbean Jazz powerhouse CaneFire, the Jorge Miguel Flamenco Ensemble, & Juno-nominated jazz composer Darren Sigesmund, touring venues as far as Australia & Japan.
With her new album Golpes y Flores (2017), Eliana Cuevas has created a beautiful musical love letter to her native land of Venezuela.
