Lucas Pereira


A Senhor Pecado é uma banda de Rock'n'Roll, Hard Rock e Heavy Metal Simõesfilhense composta por Alexandre Silva no vocal, Amon Oliveira no baixo e os irmãos Lucas e Luciano Pereira na Guitarra e Bateria, respectivamente. Cerca de quatro anos atrás nascia um projeto de blues em clima de descontração. Muita experiência foi compartilhada, principalmente por Alexandre Silva e Marcos Oliveira, baixista na formação antiga do projeto até então sem nome, os membros mais experientes, com mais de 20 anos no mundo da música. As histórias contadas por vezes ensinavam muito aos membros mais jovens, os irmãos Lucas e Luciano, outras vezes eram apenas cômicas e o conteúdo era geralmente sobre "Pecados" passados. Após alguns meses, os demais projetos, que Alexandre, Marcos, Lucas e Luciano faziam parte, deixaram de existir e com isso parte do que era feito nas outras bandas foi incorporado a este, o qual passou a ter total atenção dos membros e tornou-se um projeto profissional desde então. Assim, em homenagem aos membros mais experientes, especialmente Alexandre Silva, que possui as histórias de conteúdo mais "pecaminoso", Lucas e Luciano nomearam a banda como "Senhor Pecado". Após 2 anos, Marcos Oliveira se retirou por motivos médicos. Desde então a banda esteve com alguns baixistas em fase de testes, até aparecer Amon Oliveira. Desde então a banda tem tocado em diversas cidades pela Bahia e em eventos como o Palco do Rock, dentre outros, ao lado de bandas como Circo de Marvin e Mórbido Sistema, além de ter feito aparição em rádios e jornais locais e participar da organização de diversos eventos na cidade de Simões Filho.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is myself, is what touches my heart, my mind. Music is my dream. It gives me from the deepest feelings that nothing else can give me to the Adrenaline and Adventure that is playing on stages and gigs. Music also presents me to the most interesting friendship relations I ever had.

What is your music dream?

I dream about playing my guitar and Piano everywhere in the world. To meet several places, several people, to touch everybody with my music, to make them feel what I feel when I play. I dream of being able to live from playing music, so I can live 100% for music.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Certainly with Knowledge. It's the starting point to change the world in every other aspect. I happen to be a scientist also, so I feel that knowledge is what moves the world, from creating technology to arts, it's all about knowledge. So I would start changing the educational systems in all the world to a more inclusive, more related to the development of the student himself, and their relations with the world, other people and etc, instead of a education system that focus on creating new workers.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

From my childhood, the most memorable song is Bach's Prelude and Fuge in C major, from the Well-Tempered Clavier book, which was used as "Ave Maria" sometimes. I love the melody, the Harmony. Later in my life, I discovered that this was Bach's music.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Today, my favorite music artists are Johann Sebastian Bach, Claude Debussy, Frédéric Chopin in the classical music genre, from Rock'n'Roll I love Van Halen, Deep Purple and Jimi Hendrix. From Blues, I really Love Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert King and John Mayer and from heavier genres, the ones I like the most are Slipknot, Suicide Silence among others.

What inspires you to make music?

Every kind of stuff inspires me. I have songs or instrumental music about flowrs, sunrises, among other things. Also songs about parties, love, sex, drinking and etc, which I mostly use in the Rock Band I play, while the other ones I do Solo work usually.

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

The band I am part of, Senhor Pecado (Mr. Sin), have a clear message of "Once in a While, we need to take a time, go to a show, to a party, think about men, women, drinks and other 'sins' so we can recover our strength and get back to face life and all its problems again, so we can Win". My own message as instrumental solo musician is still unclear, cause so far, I compose about everything.

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

I feel awesome. Such an adrenaline, energy ... such overwhelmingly happiness ... I can't say much, that's what I feel in essence.

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

Well, it's hard. Nowadays a musician has to be more than "just a musician". For some, this is an improvement, but sometimes I just wnat to play. Sometimes I just want to play and be heard. Sometimes it feels too complex and impossible of a dream. Somehow I keep fighthing though. I don't know about the scene around the world, but I know that, for instance, in Brazil what could be improved would be the music market itself. Here we don't have booking agencies or similars that are able to work with independent underground artists, for instance. So, if you don't have a lot of money to invest in your music you will usually stay unheard of forever.

What do you think of Drooble?

I think it's a wonderful initiative, but I still have to discover more about it so far.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

The market itself. The unequalities and etc.

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

Yep, I do! I am a big Fan of Pajeh, Rock Sally, Lisbeth, Duppy, Circo de Marvin, Batrákia, among others. Those are awesome local bands. They also have partnerships with the band I play with. We usually play together and stuff, but I listen their work, I do help with marketing and whatever I discover that is helpful for my band, I go to shows whenever I can among other things.

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

Ohhhh ... well ... you asked the wrong person. My music isn't heard by a large audience, so I'm still in the path to discover this.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

I've talked about them already. Pajeh, Rock Sally, Duppy, Circo de Marvin, Batrákia, Louder, Lupulla, Desafio Urbano, so many artists and bands ...
