“A major international talent that’s on its way”
– THE TORONTO STAR
Through years of touring around the world, across Canada, and collaborating with Juno Award-winning performers, Eliana Cuevas has grown into an accomplished singer-songwriter and bandleader with unlimited colours in her compositional and lyrical palette. Among her honours are the National Jazz Award for Latin Jazz Artist of the Year, two Toronto Independent Music Awards for Best World Music Artist , an Independent Music Award for Best Latin Album, and a Canadian Folk Music Award for World Solo Artist of the Year. Eliana has released 5 albums of original Latin music to this date: Cohesión (2001), Ventura (2004) Vidas (2007), Espejo (2013), and Golpes y Flores (2017). With her latest album Golpes y Flores, Eliana has created a beautiful musical love letter to her native land of Venezuela that integrates Afro-Venezuelan rhythms with Eliana’s very own Latin Jazz approach featuring a sound that is both timeless and freshly contemporary.
Jeremy Ledbetter Trio
An engaging and fiery performer whose music knows no boundaries, Canadian pianist Jeremy Ledbetter has made a career from travelling the far-flung corners of the globe in search of the most fascinating and unique musical ideas out there, then seamlessly integrating them into his work as a pianist, composer, and producer. Jeremy is the driving force behind Caribbean Latin Jazz powerhouse CaneFire, and the longtime musical director and producer for calypso superstar David Rudder. Jeremy’s newest project, the Jeremy Ledbetter Trio, released their debut album “Got a Light?” in 2018. The Trio features Ledbetter’s unique sound at the piano alongside fellow Canadian jazz heavyweights Rich Brown (rinsethealgorithm) and Larnell Lewis (Snarky Puppy).
Simply put, Eliana’s show with the Jeremy Ledbetter Trio at Hugh’s Room Live in January is more than worthy of your attention. Tickets available right now.
