When and how did you become a band?

In 2008, after recording for a soundtrack in Brazil with a great producer I decided to take a chance so I started meeting with musicians and letting them know I was looking for someone to play with me, put up a band, etc. after a while I was asked to join a Serge Gainsbourg tribute band called Les Provocateurs and then a couple of friends from Nação Zumbi (one of the biggest bands in Brazil) started a project called 3namassa where male writers would compose for female singers. I did a small tour with them. Finally, in september 2008 I did my first show, singing my own songs and doing a few covers, the next year I began the production of my first album (Journal de BAD) which was released in 2010 and last year my second album (É o que temos) was out.
