here is my portrait (with my Spanish braga) by the mighty, multi talented Olaf Ladousse
Thanks to Fernando Vacas (the man behind Eureka Records from Cordoba) and the multifaceted artist Victor Coyote, I played 4 concerts in the South of Spain: Sevilla – Jaén – Fuengirola – Cordoba. I did a small set with my songs and was a guest of Victor in a few songs, who was acomppanied by Ricardo Moreno (drummer of Los Ronaldos). Besides being great fun, these two guys make a wonderful set together and I’m hoping they will play in Portugal too.
here is my collaboration with Victor from his new album “De Pueblo y de Río”: * more about this album on http://www.victorcoyoteaparicio.org/ (en Español)

Review from the 1st show at Am Quai in Solothurn:
appeared in the local newspaper in Biel:
in Bern met a personal trainer who made me do a guerrilla show in a small cozy bar in her neighborhood called Zar (which payed for the last trains) – picture taken the morning after:
the night before I had an enthusiastic crowd of 3 people in Bärner Mitti (in the end there were 6). During a break a couple who was walking outside jumped on stage and made an expected duet:
my enthusiastic Bern crowd:
I’m still missing the chickens, the trains, the personal trainer, the mad dancers in Solothurn and the river Aare. I’m hoping to return in 2016!
New collaborations with US artist Martha Colburn! In between three shows I did in Algarve this past weekend (in Faro and Guia), we were doing some landscape research for her upcoming film Western Wild about the German author Karl May and did some video shooting in Praia da Falésia. Some of this footage might result in a new music video for one of the songs on my new EP “Gringo in São Paulo“. Check out her blog about new film project!
more soon about these shows in Galeria Zé dos Bois in Lisbon and Passos Manuel in Porto!
I had the very special live support of MårDiČu, dressed as two Carmencitas and Klaus Nomi, who flew all way from Sweden to Portugal for my record release parties!
for now: some pictures from ZDB by Sara Cunha (Offbeatz):
