Have any of you played in other bands? We all have played in other bands before! Since we were teenagers, music surrounds us! However, of course, all in different styles and projects!

How often and where do you reherse? Once a week, for about two hours…
Do you have other interests of work outside the band?
All my interest is on Music… I mean, I love cinema, painting, art in general… But I express myself only through music! Jazz, Blues, Brazilian music… all styles!
What are your songs about? It’s a bout self-questioning and increasing yourself as a human being able to think! Not everybody thinks! As weird as this may sound! People don’t even try to know theirselves! It’s about looking inside for the answers you may go for!

Where have you played live this year? Cool Rock clubs in São Paulo, others around the country and the best of all: in the street.
Where can people buy your merchandise? At this link: www.znstore.com.br/dirtyglory The site is in Portuguese, but anyone can e-mail them to ask for a delivery outside the country.
What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days?
Awesome! Made the industry different! But we know a lot of bands that we’d never if we were still on the old model.
How do you think the music industry have changed because of this? They have created Spotify and others to fight piracy… it’s a great play I think.

Why do you think that they exist? To lead our way to the brightest light!
Is it easier to find inspiration from older bands, or bands that are more active today? You can find inspiration on a peanut! You just have to be opened for that! Whatever touches your heart will inspire you to do what you have to!
What have been your biggest obstacles? My agenda!
What advice would you give other bands or artists? Keep on! Don’t give up on any “No”… if your band falls apart, keep playing! Music is the important thing here! And if you keep practicing, you will be rewarded!

Stretching and warming up my fingers on the guitar board!
