Wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy & Musical 2022. Thanks for all your
Recommendations and messages. To hear from my fellow musicians and
listeners who enjoy my music, is always a pleasure. In Portugal, for all of
2021, you have ranked me #1. I really appreciate it. The great news for 2022
is that in March, I will be releasing my new album. It is a live album called
