Melodies and songs appeared in my head when I was kid. For a while I ignored them thinking they were someone else's, or even felt something was wrong, like I was hearing voices or something, until I realized it was the NEED to write music, and to just put life into a song. For a while I kept them to myself, that was all I needed. Years went by and I fell in love with a few bands and I just thought to myself "I want to do that...". So I began to show my music around, and got addicted to the feedback.
I was born in Vancouver, raised in Montreal, but moved to Chile when I was 15. Over there, in my twenties I formed the band "Beerfly", band we had for 5 years before I decided to come back here (Canada) and show my songs around. We did good. Recorded two independent albums. Got a following. Played in the best venue you can play in Santiago, twice. Filled every place we played in. Got blown away each time I would look into the crowd in front of me and see someone I had never seen before sing along to my music and lyrics. "Wow". I thought. "I want more of this". So I left all of that behind, and came here, only because I wanted more, and still do.
There's only so much you can do when you're singing songs in english in a spanish speaking country. So now, I'm back to the start. Left behind the band, and the "fans". Just brought my guitar and my songs. That's it. And now, I'm singing again.
