His sugarcane-sweet melodies, pop-soul. hooks and powerful guitar riffs, relinquish a conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape. In 2012, Alex released his fourth album Ruido En El Sistema, which Alex received his second Socan Hagood Hardy Award for outstanding achievement in Jazz and World Music. He also won his second Latin Grammy Award – this time as a songwriter. Songwriting was the focus for the latest album "Healer" that was recorded in New York, USA and Victoria, Canada.
