    Delicious Grace

    Hello everybody. I would like to introduce you to Delicious
    Grace. That's a project I started where I write all the music and lyrics in english (I'm a native portuguese speaker). It's very intimate, genuine but I'm not a pro.

    Any feedback would be good. Hope you like it:

    I appreciate, John.

    I hope to get more stuff out soon. We're planning to go back to the studio in the months to come.

    Hi John. Sorry for taking too long to answer you. It was carnaval here in Brazil. Big holiday for us.

    I'm glad you're feeling challenged about my music. Delicious Grace is a project of life. I have so many ideas to put out.

    About the art work thing... Nice drawing! I intend to release some other tunes in this form, like a single. Every song is going to have a different setting of images. They won't follow a model/pattern.

    I'm a very visual and I do think that this is just as important as the music itself.

    I hope everything turn out ok for you.

    Yes, Brazil is going through some rough times against crime. The main problem about this military intervention, as they call it, in Rio de Janeiro is duo to the narco business. Let's see how this is going to work.

    About the music, I really appreciate the way you handle it. I'm not looking for thumbs up. But I do care about respect and you have always been very respectful about my music.

    Thanks for this Youtube link, John.

    I generally don't write about politics and stuff but I have one and just one song that's politically based. It's a open critic aimed at the brazilian politicians. They **** us everytime they got a chance. Sorry about the F word but that's just they way it's. Maybe you will hear it someday.

    Cool tub, John.

    Regarding the lyrics... Yeah, it would be nice to have some advice on that. My first priority was to get the music itself right. The instrumental part. The lyrics came after. It just came like a ''wave of words'', very naturally. I liked the feeling of it.

    I think John Lennon said something about George Harrison worrying too much about what words would fit the most in a specific song. John said something like: I just sing whatever comes to mind and then I'd rewrite. This way I can finish a song quicker.

    Hello John. Sorry for taking so long to reply. I don't know if it happened to you but I wasn't able to access this website.

    Thank you for the detailed review you made about my music. John, I really appreciated everything you said. It just felt so good to finally read someone being so sincere.

    About taking requests... I usually don't do it but for you I would. The thing with Delicious Grace is that we only play original songs. I got tired of making versions of songs I liked. I do have some faster songs and heavier songs. My background is Rock N' Roll. That's what I really love.

    Yes, John. If you ever come to Brazil it would be a pleasure to meet you.

    Looking foward to hear your music. Is it a band thing? Or would it be just you solo?

    Hey John. How are you?

    I live in the northeast of Brazil in a city called Recife. I'm not very keen to the music scene around here. Actually there are just a few artists that I respect and that's it.

    That was absolutely beautiful, John. Thanks! I could spend a whole day reading your stories. It feels so good.

    Do you have something recorded from that time?

    Hello John. Sorry for taking so long to answer you. I was travelling and got a little too busy.

    I'm glad you have a new guitar. That's always awesome. I sometimes dream of a instrument or something. Good instruments are very expensive here in Brazil.

    Next week I'm going to record a demo of a new song I made. Maybe it'll take a couple sessions actually. But this recording is not going to be in a professional studio. That's more of a homemade thing. The song is about brazil's present politics and politicians (I told you about that in a previous post). Our current situation is so bad that it makes me sick. Really sick!

    Nice addition to your guitar, John. Never saw one of this thing before.

    Exciting news! You're forming a band? That's awesome. Any ideas for a band name? I find that as important as the music is. For me it's like a combo: music+name+the look. The order doesn't matter.

    Well, I'm looking for a Grand Piano (6' to 7'). That's very expensive here and hard to find.

    Having a laugh with the ''Geriatricks'' thing.

    Yes, John. Grand pianos are a treat. I have myself an electric Korg but whenever I play a real piano I feel like somebody has told a big lie to me.

    I hope you do well with your group.
