News & Notes – April 2017

Posted on April 8, 2017 by fabiana in News

• The major theme for March carries into the month of April; songwriting and playing my cavaquinho.

• Looking forward to spending some time with my triplets during the week of spring break. That is if the rain stops!

News & Notes – March 2017

Posted on March 4, 2017 by fabiana in News

• The major theme for the month of March is songwriting and playing my cavaquinho. Some cool music has already come to life and I have some lyrics still in search of the perfect melody.

• I am also working hard on putting together a new musical project with some A+ musicians. We are hoping to play a few dates later this summer. It will be sort of a nostalgic revival, to say the least. Stay tuned!

News & Notes – February 2017

Posted on February 6, 2017 by fabiana in News

• This website was hacked at some point in January. They left their ‘signature’ and deleted the last few months of posts here. I’ve updated wordpress and the security utilities so we will see what happens next.

• I had a wonderful show at the Maybeck Studio in Berkeley, CA with Ricardo Peixoto (guitar), Mary Fettig (flute/sax) and Stephanie Ozer (piano). Whant a gorgeous, intimate listening room! The Maybeck home was built in 1914 and rebuilt in 1923 after a fire. The acoustics were absolutely incredible!

• Thanks to all the Program Directors and DJs who have been playing Namorados; my recent collaboration with Roberto Vally and Jeffrey Carruthers. It’s Track 04 on Roberto’s ‘pure lines’ CD.

• My collaboration with jazz vocalist/guitarist Ron Boustead will be released February 14th, 2017. It’s called Til Now and is Track 05 on Ron’s ‘Unlikely Valentine’ CD. It’s a great song with English/Portuguese vocals and lyrics and we have added a Brazilian bossa touch. I’ll be singing that with Ron and his band on February 22nd at the ESpot Lounge at Vitellos in Studio City, CA at Ron’s CD Release Performance.

News & Notes – November 2016

Posted on November 5, 2016 by fabiana in News

• It looks like my collaboration with jazz vocalist/guitarist Ron Boustead will be released February 14th, 2017. I’m very excited about this project. We recorded the song in Los Angeles last August and the mixing/mastering is complete. Ron and I sang together and we added a Brazilian bossa touch. It’s a great song with English/Portuguese vocals and lyrics. Stay tuned!

• Things are moving along on my new CD; a return to my sertanejo roots. Jean de Carvalho will feature 8 songs written by my father, Dercilio Passoni (with new arrangements) and 4 songs written by me. I have been working closely with my Brazilian producer and we have just a few more things to fall in place before we set a recording date in Brazil (likely spring/summer 2017).

• I’m in love again …. with my custom made cavaquinho that I picked up last month from the incredible craftsman Carlinho Luthier in Venceslaus Brás, Minas Gerais. The sound is absolutely incredible; acoustic and through my Fishman Loudbox. I have been in major practice mode and continue my weekly lessons via skype with my teacher Léo Sant’ana (Poćos de Caldas). I’m hoping to add a few songs (w/ cavaquinho) to my shows soon.
