It was December 2010, 9 p.m., I was performing in front of a relative small group of people.

My jazz music was still resonating in the room when, suddenly, a very pure idea started being visualized in my brain:

I was pretty sure: I’ll be a musician.

That night I went to bed, and a weird guy, who had just got back from 2075, came to me saying: “Hey bro, local musicians are still making $100 a gig and, you know, the world is not necessarily always friendly.”

Well, that night I understood all the critical points that you are going to figure out right now:

To be an artist is a matter of mindset, not a label for musicians and painters;

Money is not everything, but almost everything needs money to be properly done;

My art will never be my business;

My business will always be my art.
