Story

I started my musical journey back in 2002 when I started to learn to play the guitar. In 2005, I made some friends at school who were willing to put some action in our boring countryside life and we all had some contact with Heavy Metal. Since I was the only one who actually enjoyed singing in a town where everybody was very shy about showing I was the best candidate. In the same year, we started writing songs with the technique and inspiration we had and that went from that time untill now, in 2021 when I wrote my last Heavy Metal song after leading 3 bands and about 100 songs. Now, I decided to enjoy my creation while I get to know and foster new and old artists with my experience and willingness and curiosity to know more. I still sing with some japanese friends and once in a while I record a cover song with other musicians while I search for live opportunities to play my carreer songs.
