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. In 2014 Mendoza moved to Music City, Nashville, TN where he is embarking on a project as Hobo Cane.
Why Hobo Cane? "According to the critics, I've always been too Rock for Pop, too Pop for Alternative, too Anglo for Latin and even sometimes too Latin for Anglo. I think that's a good thing. A hobo is a transient and migrant worker. I've moved from place to place all my life, and I was raised among different cultures and languages. I think my songs are influenced and enriched by that diversity. I want to help destroy the stereotype of any music. My mother's last name is 'Cañas', which means 'Canes' in Spanish. So that's me... HOBO CANE.”
Most recently, Hobo Cane has found a warm songwriting community in Nashville with Chris Carrabba, the Grammy-nominated Barry Dean as well as Grammy Award winners Luke Laird, Lori McKenna, and countless others.
Selected as one of Nashville's Lightning 100's Independent Radio Station Spotlight Artists in 2016 and Local Artist of The Week Artist in July of 2017 with song "Let Go" on rotation at Lightning 100 (2016FMQB AAA Station of The Year & NAB Crystal Award Recipient).
