Personal Quote:

[on developing his unique vocal style] I found this guitar player, Julio Martinez, and he and I became a duo. Brazilian rhythms have a backbeat and you could turn R&B-ish in Brazilian music. They cross paths - one has the backbeat and the other has brilliant syncopation. That became my thumbprint and signature. See more »
