He now introduces his own project featuring Joana Espadinha voice; Luis Figueiredo piano; Bruno Pedroso drums; Ricardo Toscano sax; Diogo Duque trumpet; Afonso Pais and João Firmino guitar; João Hasselberg doublebass & electric bass.
This is a project that features his own original compositions, and some jazz and pop standards, where improvisation and communication have a main role in the development of each tune. Influenced by Terence Blanchard, Debussy and Ray LaMontagne he managed to fusion this compositional styles and transform them into his unique musical voice.

This debut album “Whatever it is you’re seeking, won’t come in the form you’re expecting” includes some of his orginal compositions inspired in some of the great XX century literary classics. A kind of soundtrack to this stories which environment is super cinematographic recreating it now as a listener.

Track Name: To A God Unknown
Lyrics by Joana Espadinha

''If the land is dry, from the sun,
'cause the clouds won't cry, anymore

his will is strong ...

Deserts seem to grow on and on
in his dreams they've burned every song

his will is strong...

When the winds of change came along
He cried out a name, unknown

His will is strong

As he dried his tears, he could see
The remaining fear, was me...

My will is strong... "
