Biography

There are multiple artists named “Cuban Heels”

1) Gritty, primal and soulful are the best words to describe Cuban Heels music. Blending their Garage Blues with a raw soul power in the vein of the great soul and gospel shouters. Influences range from blues greats such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walter, through soul legends as Otis Redding and Ray Charles to garage rockers as The Stooges and The Sonics.

The latter two mainly to give an impression about the raw energy of the band. Although all three Cuban Heels albums have been receiving raving reviews, third album Gutbucket Music can be seen as their ultimate so far.

A Cuban Heels gig is a lot more than the average blues show. Appealing to an audience ranging from youngsters to the older, more traditional bluesfan, the band gives all they got and has left audiences breathless at renowned festivals as the North Sea Jazz, Moulin Blues and Belgian Rhythm & Blues Festival.

2) The Glasgow, Scotland post punk band was formed when Johnny and The Self-Abusers disbanded. John Malarkey formed The Cuban Heels and released one album and several singles, the last one in 1981. Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill formed Simple Minds. They, of course, lasted a lot longer.
