Musical Journey

Touching Lives one Song at a Time

Carlos's music serves as a soundtrack to his journey, blending genres and melodies that evoke emotions we all share. Rooted in soft rock, Bossa Nova, and Latin Jazz, his music and melodies capture the essence of finding strength within and around us.

A Musician Rooted in Family

As a young child, Carlos and his family fled Communist Cuba, seeking refuge, political Asylum, and founding a new home in Miami's Little Havana. Overcoming adversity, cultural shock, and language barriers, Carlos forged his path. He eventually became a beloved family man, a successful entrepreneur, musician and was appointed by the governor to the board of directors of South Lake Hospital which he served for 13 years. He is also recognized as a pillar of his community.

After his wife and his own battle with cancer he returned to his true passion for music. It’s unsurprising that all his songs offer a message of hope and strength while remaining comforting and uplifting. With a deep appreciation for the sacrifices of the military, his son's service and the love for this country, Carlos's music also reflects the values of service, loyalty, and patriotism with songs like USA, Back to You and Red, White and Blue.

Through his heartfelt music, he shares a narrative of resilience, the love for God, family, and the courage to face life's challenges head-on, leaving a lasting impact on all who encounter his music.

Backed by Grammy-award winning musicians, the SolisBravo band offers a musical embrace that wraps you in a warm familiarity, like a cherished memory from your own life. The thoughtful lyrics and Carlos’s story invite us to connect with his experiences, to find comfort, inspiration, and a sense of belonging. His music provides the perfect delivery to connect with his audience.

Carlos shares his story with the world, inspiring others to pursue their own dreams and find strength in the bonds with God, family and inner resilience. Carlos Solis and the SolisBravo Band will take you on a musical journey.

Press Mentions


Sometimes it takes a different view in order to place things in perspective. When I lived in Ireland as a kid during the Troubles, I knew where I truly belonged: the USA. I bought a plane ticket home to America, at age 15, without knowing where I would live. When the plane flew over the Statue of Liberty, I broke the executive decision I had made that I never would cry - and sat staring out the window in tearful gratitude. Today I am listening to this beautiful song from a man who also came here in search of a better place. Carlos Solis fled communist Cuba when he was a child, and has loved this country ever since. Please give a listen. The song is pure beauty, from someone who truly knows what it means to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The new Solis-Bravo CD, SAILING is something you can't stop playing. It is a pure enjoyment from the very first song..ME AND YOU. Not only is the CD well produced but all of the songs are originals written by Carlos Solis, a superb composer who writes with feeling. And what is more exceptional is the mix....from jazz to bossa to R&B....all with a Latin flavor. SAILING is a winner all the way." JIM STONE 89.7 FM, WLNZ Lansing Michigan.

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to the Solis-Bravo Band. After listening to their album "Sailing", I was hooked. The Solis-Bravo band have received some great buzz via phone calls and emails and I'm looking forward to more from these talented musicians.

Garden Theatre Review: Solis Bravo was one of the best sounding concerts we've ever had at the Garden Theatre. They are professionals through and through. From the original conceptual meeting the load out, working with Solis Bravo was a dream. They are passionate for their craft, and execute their sound flawlessly. The sold out audience LOVED them. People were dancing in the aisles as the theatre was transformed to a street party. Incredible night. Incredible band. I can't wait to work with them again.
