The tour in the United States was brutal, the people are incredible, it’s incredible how even though we don’t speak the same language, people manage to connect with my songs: I mean, I speak a little English, I manage to communicate, but seeing that they like my music is brilliant”.

And not only on tour, because the singer has managed to carve out a very promising space within the industry with his unique style and of course his lyrics that reach deep into the hearts and feelings of his most loyal followers.
