Describe your sound in 3 words
A, HOT B, JAZZ C, AND A TOUCH OF MAGIC
Latin but with a vivid pop sensibility. Tell us a few things about your new song Bonnie & Clyde. What is the main idea behind it?
On this music I wanted something more dancing and a little more Latin, when I composed the title came very quickly because while playing I sing in loop this “Bonnie & Clyde” then I found logical to write his story, but without returning in a text of violence of as it was in his history, but on the connection, the love that can be created in a couple and that can have no limit… but thought in positive…
What first got you into music?
It is my parents who passed on to me the love of music, at home we listened to a lot of music, and very early I wanted to make some! and with time I left to the discovery chooses my instrument “the Guitar”, I am autodidact, I learned everything by looking, encouraging, and of course hours and hours of work… and the passion of the composition took to me very quickly, and since that made of long years that I compose, I arrange and I direct in all my productions.
What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?
I love both, but the greatest pleasure is when I hear my composition finished in the studio! At the beginning there is just a guitar and some vocals, then everything is built with the musicians in the studio. In concert it’s a little bit different, I have fun but there has to be some magic otherwise it can get boring very quickly! But when the magic happens, the evening can be crazy, and magical.
What would you change in the music industry?
There is too much and there is a lot of confusion, the public does too much zapping, and many artists who do not work with machines have difficulty to get out and be heard! and unfortunately the earnings decrease more and more! Earning a living today is becoming more and more difficult! Even the public doesn’t buy our CD’s anymore, we have to do concerts with very little money! And more over the platforms do not pay us or very, very, badly! The public doesn’t even support us anymore or almost not via donations! this last is possible on our pages with specific tabs… Yes, the future is not very positive…
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
I remain very positive, and I thank the people who leave me comments like on my Youtube channel, very encouraging. There is an audience that is created with time, even if I am in a style and a musical world anything but current. But to believe some comments my music makes them dream, dance, escape, I imagine them, and for an artist like me there is nothing more positive and gratifying.
When was the last time you danced?
This morning during and after the shower! Just before I played the guitar and started a new song that made me dance…
