Called “another order of performer” by The New York Times, “Pepito” Gómez has taken the U.S. by storm since his arrival from Cuba. His soulful tenor voice, both beautiful and strong, has a unique timbre rarely found. His authentic Cuban sound has caught the attention of fans, critics and fellow musicians.
His popularity is worldwide; he has sold out venues like Italy’s 5,000-capacity La Tropical. Joe’s Pub Theatre in New York debuted Pepito’s Evolution of Cuban Music project and it sold out. Recent awards include Fiestacubana.net’s Best Male Singer and an award in Cuba for his touching song on environmental awareness, “Tiempo Dificiles.” Recent shows include the Fillmore Jackie Gleason Theatre in Miami, Yoshi’s in Oakland, Calif., and the Havana Film Festival in New York. Gomez is now recording with nine-time Grammy-winning producer Jose Lugo.
