"I grew up listening to a myriad of musical styles on the radiowaves of São Paulo, Brazil, where local MPB music, Pop, Rock, Punk, Electronica, Reggae & more intertwined. That openness to what music could be about enticed me to play songs and make art that is quite diverse, thus culturally relevant in our global age."
Connecting to an universal sound while balancing innovation and cultural preservation is an important aspect of F7's work, propelling his music center stage at big festivals, concert houses, independent/public radios, music workshops and TV Ads as with the song 'A Cor do Som' in this VW Bug Convertible commercial watch it here.
In addition to being a dedicated artist, F7 is a committed father of two wonderful girls & works as Music Director at The Griffin School, a non-profit creative High-School in Austin/TX. Through juggling jobs & supporting a family, F7 has released 3 full-length albums and 2 EPs, with an upcoming Os Alquimistas release due in the Spring 2015. (Stay tuned!)
The roster of collaborations and performances alongside top acts such as Angélique Kidjo, Jair Oliveira, Los Amigos Invisibles, Chico Cesar, Kinky, Rogê, Grupo Fantasma, Tita Lima, Duína del Mar, ATASH, Ozomatli, Lee Scratch Perry and many others has served as a great catalyst for F7's continual creative growth.
Another aspect of F7's work is the collaboration with the exuberant Austin Samba School, fronting the stage at the world's largest indoor Carnaval show with the largest Samba School in the USA!
