Pure heart and soul. That's how you can best describe Hobo Cane. Born as Javier Alberto Mendoza in the state of Virginia to a Spanish mother and Mexican/American father, Javier's love for music burned bright from a young age. He started his musical career joining Warner-Chappell as a staff writer in Miami, FL. There he spent his time writing tunes for mega pop sensations such as Enrique Iglesias, Juan David, Ricky Martin, Rosario and more. The ever-winding path of life took him to Saint Louis: City of Miles Davis, Tina Turner and Chuck Berry, where he saw musical success with his new following. In 2014 Mendoza moved to Music City, Nashville, TN where he is embarking on a project as Hobo Cane.
Soon after the release of his new album "El Jardín" in late 2019, COVID hit and, like everyone else, was confined to his home. From home he wrote an instrumental piece called "Respira". Where he had over 20 musicians play remotely from their confinement all around the world, raising money for many out of work musicians.
Currently Hobo Cane has begun his own Patreon Platform Subscription in order to continue recording and performing music for a living. To find out more how to get involved... visit patreon.com/hobocanemusic
Hobo Cane will be releasing his brand new record on October 21st. Making this record has been a dream come true for Javier. Thanks to producer Andres Silva Gomez's guidance and connections, Javier was able to secure a one time "Nashville Style" recording session with Nashville's top A-List players including Sam Hunter, Mike Rojas, Scotty Sanders, Mike Brignardello, Nathan Keeterle, Jon Conely, Tony Lucido, Jacob Lowery and Andres Silva. They recorded live, simultaneously, and created on the spot. The organic magic that happened opened Cane's eyes to a new way of recording songs. One session turned into two, three and on. The musician's excitement of Javier's songs showed on the sessions recording up to 20 songs in four days. The results were stellar and the songs came ALIVE.
