Thank YOU for listening. Cheers.
Q:Ser del mar .... me encanto tenes una voz vetustera... Aqui estoy me anoto en tu tumblr para seguir tus pasos... y escuchar tu musica que me encanto ... saludos desde Argentina !!!!!
Gracias. Te agradezco mucho eso. Las canciones que uno escribe son extensiones de uno, y cuando alguien dice algo así lindo, la verdad que se siente muy bien. Un abrazo fuerte para Argentina.
Q:Não sei se é pedir demais, mas você poderia fazer um cover de "Sozinho" do Caetano Veloso? Não sei se você conhece, mas eu acho que ficaria fantástico na sua voz. :)
Eu amo essa música, tanto a versão de estúdio ea versão ao vivo. Tão bom. Talvez eu tente gravá-la. Obrigado pela sugestão. E obrigado por seu apoio :)
Q:Posta um vídeo cantando em português!
Sim, com certeza. Em breve, muito em breve.
Q:Just checked out a couple of your songs...fantastic! I hear a bit of blues and alt country as well. Tell me, are you at all a Mountain Goats fan? My ear picks up a tiny bit of that. Good stuff!
Oh yes, I love their lo-fi stuff. I have a special place in my heart for “Going to Georgia.”
Thanks for your kind words. I really appreciate them :)
Q:Olá! Sua música é realmente encantadora <3

Q:Hey! Que genial tu musica, como suena esa guitarra. Te felicito. Saludos desde Chile hermano :)
Gracias, hermano. Te agradezco mucho esas buenas palabras. Saludos a Chile.
Q:Beautiful songs, amazing performance :) I really love what you're doing! Hope to see you live in NY someday soon (which must be so awesome!). Just one question as a person who's just begun digging the style of music like yours (singing and playing instrument): do you do any kinds of daily, routine practice? Also, what do you care the most when you perform? Thanks!
Thank you. I really appreciate your kind words. And seeing you at a show would indeed be awesome.
It’s so great that you’re getting into performing yourself. All I can say is make your instrument your obsession, an extension of you. Find music that excites you. Listen to it over and over again. Dance to it. Sing along with it. Get happy, get sad, let it make you feel hopeful or whatever else it brings you. But feel it with sincerity. Figure out what makes it so great and why it moves you. And practice, practice, practice. There isn’t much more to it. Get excited and practice.
That famous Bob Ross quote comes to mind: “talent is just a pursued interest.” If you hear something that gets you going, and another human being is playing it, then you can play it. Not just play it but play it and make it your own, which is the most exciting thing.
And as far as what do I care about most when I perform…well, I actually have pretty bad stage fright. It’s a problem and it’s kept me from playing as much as I want to and should be. When I get up on stage, I’m trying hard not to freak myself out and find my place. I try to force myself to focus on the sounds coming out of me and having fun, pacing myself and slowing down to keep a tight rhythm. Nerves, for some reason, tend to make me play fast. Play faster than you have to and you’ll lose control. You’ll lose the moment.
If I’m able to find my zone, then all is well. That’s what I care about most when I play out: finding my zone. It’s a place where I am not afraid of whether I will mess up and make a fool of myself. And when I get there, I am at my happiest. It is what I love doing the most.
Hope this helps. Wish you the best.

Gracias! Y sí, me ha pasado por la mente hacer tutoriales. Pero no estoy seguro que específicamente debo enseñar. Alguna sugerencia? A lo mejor uno de estos días me pongo a hacer uno. Abrazos.
Big, big fan o’ this. I’d give it a watch if you know what’s good for ya.
Q:What are you doing in Brooklyn? You should be atop a high mountain in the north with the beautiful music that you play for all below to hear!
Hah, you’re funny.
I sure could use some time in the mountains. Build me a little cabin in the middle of nowhere, far away from everything. Surge the wood of the home against the wood that makes songs. Let the steady crackle of a fireplace regurgitate. Grab the spilled tones. Watch paper and ink spit at each other. That’s the dream.
But I’ll always make my way back to Brooklyn.
