“I am often asked to describe the style of what I do, and the best word I have found is ‘homely’. Having been born in Brazil and then raised in London, home is a fluid and open place where barriers don’t exist. It is also a place where you can let your guard down and let the purist simple emotions come out, that is what I try to do through my music.”
