Eliana Cuevas Quartet

Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the Fall & Winter, the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important entertainers on today’s jazz scene performing for your pleasure in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.

“…dynamic songs that defy genres and expectations of Latin music…an enchanting voice that skillfully acts as both storyteller and instrument…passionate performances that captivate audiences of every language…”

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 honors 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 at the Independent Music Awards (2014), and 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, joropo, pop, and Brazilian music, writing her first song by the age of nine.  After moving to Toronto, she boldly began using a fake ID to play the city’s top jazz clubs despite being underage. Singing for Brazilian, flamenco and jazz ensembles influenced her eclectic sound on her debut EP Cohesión (2001) and first two albums, Ventura (2004) and Vidas (2007).

Her engaging voice and songwriting on topics from adventure to forgiveness have wowed the local music scene, hailing Cuevas as “Canada’s Latin Music Queen”. Her newest album Espejo (2013) is a true testament to her growth as an artist. Shaped by her international performances, work with acclaimed artists, and new motherhood, Espejo seamlessly blends genres from blues to pop with Cuevas’ signature soaring vocals and Latin jazz sound.

This evening’s singing star ELIANA CUEVAS features jazz masters JEREMY LEDBETTER and percussionist DANIEL STONE, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
