“Sacred and Profane” from Hekate’s Torch was the first push in their career, motivating them towards creating a body of work that was meaningful and fun. Their next song, Dance with me, was more lyrical and thought provoking. But it was with the song with the same name as the band that things shifted gear, they decided to challenge themselves and record their first Music video. The experience changed their performance and how their fans saw them. With the song Chains, they solidified how they wanted to present their music and message to the world. The song When I’m with You, was a romantic ballad written for each other and has a version sung in Brazilian Portuguese. The Forgotten Shore has a strong message about overcoming addiction.
What happens when two Worlds cross paths? Two musicians with Big dreams become friends, lovers and share Music and Spirituality.
Two hearts beating in unison with one intent, one destiny and one rescue cat. Brought together by love, they are now creating a new Timeline.
When did it begin? Robert wanted to be a musician from a young age, learning saxophone and guitar. In the late 90’s he rented a double garage and invested in some recording gear, and the band he started, worked together for a year playing local gigs, before the members moved on different things. At this point Robert decided to pursue poetry and regularly performed at the local open mic events in Victoria.
Meanwhile in Brazil… Our red haired jungle girl has been singing since she was 5 years old and songwriting professionally since 1999. She studied lyrical singing, Drama classes, acted in many plays and participated in many choirs and operas as 1st Soprano. She won the 2nd prize for the Latin Festival of Music and Dance in Brazil and 1st prize for the Best Soundtrack in the Amazon Festival of Music and Theatre, and internationally as an author for the Best Play in the Tena Music and Theatre Festival, in Ecuador. Her songs were played on many radio stations in Brazil and online radios in Europe.
But in 2015 she packs up all those years of choirs, operas and rock concerts to arrive in Canada following her bliss. It was a very tough decision to make. But her choice was also motivated by an old dream.
It wasn’t until a few years ago when they met at the Crossroads of this new timeline and decided to make some magical music together. Femi and Robert became friends in music and much more than that.
