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.
