Her newest album Espejo (2013) is a true testament to Cuevas' growth as an artist. Shaped by her international performances and work with acclaimed artists, Espejo seamlessly blends genres from blues to pop with Cuevas' signature soaring vocals and Latin jazz sound. Ingenious producer and composer Jeremy Ledbetter played a key role in the making of this award-winning album which features 20 of the top Latin and Jazz musicians in Canada. Cuevas keeps pushing her creative boundaries making her latest collection of songs an eclectic and captivating musical journey. Espejo is available in Canada and it was also recently released in The United States and Europe through Alma Records.
