ALBA’s music has been best described as a blend between her old-school Rock-Blues influences and her passion for today's Soul/R&B and Pop music trends, ranging from Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin and Stevie Wonder to Alicia Keys, Joss Stone and John Mayer
ALBA made a name for herself in her native Spain, known as the ‘girl who can play guitar over her head’, a title she earned due to her energetic and captivating performances with her band Sons Of Rock where she would do this signature move as homage to Jimi Hendrix.
Her soulful voice, virtuoso guitar skills and classy stage presence led Sons Of Rock to win dozens of ‘Best Live performance’ and ‘Best Band’ awards, play for thousands at festivals like Rock in Rio or Sonisphere, open for big international and Spanish acts such as The Waterboys or Celtas Cortos, and gain sponsorships from brands like Harley Davidson and Red Bull.
ALBA refined her songwriting skills throughout her time in Sons of Rock, with a collection of 24 original songs spanning across 4 studio albums from 2007 to 2012, being the last one produced by Grammy-winner Nigel Walker (Paul McCartney, Mark Knopfler). One of her songs, ‘My Name Is Lucille’, dedicated to B.B. King, was included in the OST of the Canadian feature film ‘Moving Day’.
ALBA set roots in London in 2016, and with the support of an outstanding line-up of musicians, she has made her way into the UK music scene performing at iconic venues and festivals such as The Dublin Castle, Ronnie Scott's, Edinburgh’s Fringe or Brighton’s Alternative Escape.
She has crafted a unique sound reflected on her ‘London Sessions’ EP and latest single ‘Lucky’, recorded at Ralph Salmins’ studios and mastered by Frank Arkwright (The Killers, Coldplay) at legendary Abbey Road Studios. ‘Lucky’ has attracted industry attention, getting airplay and excellent reviews in radios and media, including a feature on The Guitar Magazine.
