Beto Cuevas, well known for his 17-year tenure as the frontman of the Grammy-winning Latin alternative rock band La Ley, embarked on a solo career after the band's breakup in 2005 and released his debut album, “Miedo Escenico in 2008. Born Luis Alberto Cuevas Olmedo on September 12, 1967, in Santiago, Chile, he grew up in Montreal, Canada, where his family fled during the reign of Augusto Pinochet. In the late '80s Cuevas returned to Chile and joined the lineup of La Ley, which was in the midst of a lineup shuffle. Once the new lineup was finalized with Cuevas in place as the band's frontman, the band made their full-length album debut in 1989 with “Desiertos.” The band ultimately broke through to mainstream success with the follow-up album “Doble Opuesto “(1990) and its chart-topping English-language cover of the Rolling Stones’ 1973 classic, “Angie.” Subsequent albums such as “La Ley” (1992), “Invisible “ (1995), and “Vértigo” (1998) established the band as one of the leading alternative rock groups in Latin music. They also established Cuevas as an impressive songwriter as well as a superstar frontman. La Ley’s greatest success came around the turn of the century with the Grammy-winning albums “Uno” (2000) and “MTV Unplugged” (2001). After the band's breakup in 2005, Cuevas embarked on a solo career and moved to Los Angeles. Released in 2008 on Warner Bros., Cuevas' full-length solo debut album, “Miedo Escenico,” was preceded by the lead single "Vuelvo," a Top 10 hit throughout most of Latin America.
