Hey fam. I'm another long-time bedroom/basement music producer/songwriter like lots of y'all. I participated in FAWM about 10 years ago, I don't remember when... I wonder if I still have an old profile here.. This year when I received the email invitation to the dusty old inbox , I realized that it was coming at exactly the moment I needed it to.

I used to want to have a famous band. I dragged my friends and lovers into painful, humiliating gigs and struggled to maintain my facade of specialness. I was going to be a cool artist guy, and as the facade would crumble again and again, losing lovers and alienating friends, still, despite the agony of losing one illusion after another, I eventually broke through into a free fall. I crashed through the glass of the social medias, the falsenesses and fantasies and desperation and hopelessness. Where was the meaning in all this? There was none. Music always seemed like it should have been a lifeline to some eternal thing, but instead my music just felt like bugs on the windshield of time.

And so I landed in Brazil. I had been carrying a dream of musical collaboration across cultures since I was a kid. I made some new friends. We started a band called "The Midoestes." It was no longer about me. It was about connection. The process itself was more important than the result, more important than the content we were creating. We were creating a lifelong connection across continents.

And so now, five years later, I am working on going back. To live in central Brazil for a year and produce music with people who are interested in creating music outside of the pop country industry there. I'm now studying a Brazilian instrument called the viola caipira, which I'm about to use for much of this FAWM project. Cheers everybody!

I like your tracks, particularly Finest of the seventies and Give a gift. Beautiful singing on Acorde too. You wouldn't know it from my music but I'm a big Tom Ze fan. Hope you have a great FAWM.

Welcome (BACK!) to FAWM! What an amazing journey you've been on. I've never heard a viola caipira but I'm very much looking forward to!
