Alex Coba was the kind of kid that grew up taking naps in his mom’s guitar case. Music was all around him in the South Texas heat along the Rio Grande. He is proof that sometimes a meandering path and a penchant for trying things is the exact right recipe for a soulful songwriter to emerge as boundless as the landscape he grew up around. The Harlingen, Texas native now based in Houston is releasing his debut album, a literal lifetime in the making for the songwriter whose life story, while still in the making, is undeniable fodder for interesting, moving songs driven by heart and grounded in strong roots.
The integrity of his songs is ever present in the craft and his delivery. Coba is following closely in the footsteps of his Texas Songwriter mentors with various markers of success in songwriting competitions and songwriting accolades from The Texas Country Music Association. Although these will undoubtedly change in scale as his career grows, Coba’s grounded approach to music and life will ensure he savors every single one.
