My feelings, my frustrations, my amorous disappointments, my sorrows, my joys and my emotions.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

A message of love, that there's love and hope even in the difficult moments of life.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I feel a little nervous before the presentation, anxiety, chills, shaking. From the third song I feel good, at ease and in the best place in the world, the stage.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

For beginning musicians like me and others looking for space, it is the lack of places that provide opportunities for their own music.

What do you think of Drooble?

A good opportunity to advertise my songs and seek listeners.

It's very frustrating to be hired to sing the songs of other artists and can't to sing the songs with my own inspirations, it's like taking on an identity that isn't mine.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

A little frustrating, some artists here in Brazil make music for the purpose of banalizing art. The lyrics do not have the poetry that had long ago, but there are a few moments that I find something good to hear.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Qualities I don't know, I know excellent musicians who haven't yet had their songs launched in a great label, but nowadays it takes a lot of luck.
