“Red Sky, Blue Water” is urban, with rhythms as flexible as the ever-changing daily schedules of city life, and harmonies that try to paint portraits of ephemeral moments and recreate those sensations in the listener’s imagination.

The city is my artistic element. Its people, its artists and the inspiration drawn from them, the ups and downs--mostly the downs--enrich my imagination and stimulate my creative process.

Every city has a different artistic vocabulary. NYC’s shaped mine. Leaving it for the Old World opened a new chapter in my life, and an opportunity to further evolve as an artist.

This album is the product of this transition and my transformation.

Reuniting an ensemble of dear friends and creative musicians, I composed a repertoire of dynamic originals that served as launching pads for the musical interactions that followed.

This work is inspired by all the places and people I encountered during the last decade. Without these experiences I wouldn’t be the person and the musician I am today.

Thank you to my dear Olga, Mamma e Papà for your sincere love and immense support, to my friends of NYC and Paris for the constant inspiration, to Manu, Rick and Dada for your incredible artistry, to Yosvany for your wisdom, to Charles for turning this product into a full work of art, to Chris for turning me into a better writer, to Michael for the beautiful sound of this record and to Jordi for believing in my music.
