I would love to say that I was born in Barcelona with a guitar in my arms but this was unfortunately not the case. That guitar finally reached my hands when I was seventeen. I had fallen head over heels in love with her.
Although I did not have the chance to study music, I have always enjoyed playing any music instrument. By myself or with my friends. As Alex Fisherman or as a member of Sepharad, Garbanz, Mahoney or Desorden Juanra, music has always flown through my veins. Just for fun, not as a way to earn a living.
In parallel, I developed a professional career in the ship supplying industry full of unforgettable moments but, unfortunately, dark clouds arose in the horizon after almost fifteen years of hard work. Those were hard times.
But every cloud has a silver lining.
I quit that job. I had taken the decision to start a career in the music industry. I needed it. And I wanted it. I went back to college and did a master in music business but the expectations at the end of the course were not very optimistic.
But then a turning point occurred.
Being a thirty-seven years old guy I became probably the older intern in the world. I got the opportunity of being part of the Reggies team in Chicago and travelled across the US for three months. What I saw traumatized me: I realized how terrible the music scenario in Spain was.
And I became a filmmaker. Kids Used to Sing.
I started this project in Barcelona, my home town and I finished it in San Diego, the city in which I live now, working in music.
