I’m a Brazilian immigrant who moved to NYC to study music and pursue my dream career as a Singer/Songwriter because music saved my life!
Here’s my story:
Growing up as a child I struggled with depression and anxiety caused by an auto-immune disease. As medication was not enough, I turned out to be very quiet and alone. It was very hard to go to school and I felt like no one would understand what I was going through.
As concerns raised in my household I was taken to a friend of the family who’s an occupational therapist. My parents gave me the opportunity to experiment different activities to stimulate my brain. That’s when I figured that music was pretty much the calling of my life. It gave me the ability to express myself and communicate in a different level.
Since then I found that I must write songs that empower people to achieve their biggest aspirations. As an independent musician I rely a lot on collaborations and I learn a lot from helping other people too in any way I can. I believe that my biggest mantra is to never be a victim of our circumstances. There’s always a way of getting what you wish for with hard work and by reaching out to other creative minds.
I still suffer from my disease and sometimes is hard to carry on with the day. However, I’m not going to let anything hold me from what I love doing and hopefully I can inspire others to do the same. I believe that music is a healing potion and I vow to spread this message.
“My purpose in life is to entertain, challenge and inspire people so that we can empower one another.”
