Why this name?
It is my real first name.
Do you play live?
I used to play live constantly, but recently I have just layed back from live stuff. I spend more time writing, recording and spending time with the family unit.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Back in the hayday of mp3.com, when it was a truly independent site, I sold hundred's of CDs and was on top of the Bossa Nova charts for years.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Sure. I am not sure who would not sign.
Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Marcus Valle, Michael Franks, Leila Pinheiro, Karryn Allison and so many more.
