About Alex Cano:
“New York rocker maps the road to resilience. Cano holds his ground, fully embodying self-sustainability and creating an entirely reputable album as an independent artist.” -Paste Magazine
Alex Cano is a New York-based folk/alternative rock solo artist. Studying music since the age of 5, he began his professional music career as a drummer in his mid-teens. He has since lent his multi-instrument skills to a myriad of musical projects, eventually falling in love with songwriting and shifting his focus toward his own solo career shortly after graduating college. Cano’s sound has been described as a cross-pollination between high energy alternative rock, and reflective folk/roots rock with a touch of outlaw country. His soulful baritone voice (often compared to those of Jim Morrison, Johnny Cash, and Eddie Vedder) makes you feel his honest stories of resilience and survivorship. Significant influences include Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, and Soundgarden. Alex’s debut album ‘Every Rise of the Sun’ was released on June 25, 2019. Co-Produced by Cano and his cousin Nick Sochan, and a majority of the instrumentation performed by Cano himself, it has since been featured in publications such as Paste Magazine and Indie Current. Leading up to and following its release, Cano has toured the United States in support of the record. Still active, the tour has spanned over 50 cities and has been highlighted by performances such as Pleasantville Music Festival. In 2020, Alex plans to continue touring and releasing new music. The deluxe edition of ‘Every Rise of the Sun’ will be released exclusively on vinyl on 4/18.
