"Life EP Review"

"I like a lot about it. It has moments of great melody and convincing emotion. It has a lot of potential. It plays around with time signatures, tempos, syncopation and stuff. It’s art rock." - Donovan Lyman - Blue Meridian

"Something To Hold On To LP Review"

"Your compositions are well structured and nicely executed. Really catchy melodies with meaningful lyrics. Guitar work is superb!" - Anthony Casuccio

"Sins - Mike Pinder's Songwars Contest"

Your song has a good driving beat with a lot of energy. There are parts
of the song that work and are well constructed.
- Mike Pinder

"Alone - Mike Pinder's Songwars Contest"

For the most part, your song has a good feel that flows well with good chord
changes that support a solid vocal melody throughout the song.
- Mike Pinder

"No Cure - Mike Pinder's Songwars Contest"

Solid effort. Your song has a great driving beat with good dynamics. My
favorite part of the song is the bridge where you change the tempo.
The track is well played. Very good job!
- Mike Pinder

"Fly Away - Mike Pinder's Songwars Contest"

Your song has a solid groove with a tight driving beat. I really like the vocal
melody, as it is something that the listener will want to sing along with. Good and catchy!
- Mike Pinder

"All-Time Favorite - Chris Trapper Cover Me Contest"

"Call me crazy, but I hear legitimate joy in the guitar playing! I really like the sound of the nylon strings on this song, it gives it a slight Brazilian feel, which I love. And I liked the slight melody changes so much that I wish there were more of them. Wonderful work Fabiano!" - Chris Trapper

"All-Time Favorite - Chris Trapper Cover Me Contest"

"Love the guitar playing. Well done! You captured the essence of the song very well. And good vocals too!" - Dan McLoughlin - The Push Stars

"Least You're Breathing - Chris Trapper Cover Me Contest"

"I really like the overall musicianship, every part is solid. I think Fabiano is a virtuoso on guitar as he seemed to figure out this song note-for-note. This is an excellent performance!!" - Chris Trapper

"Least You're Breathing - Chris Trapper Cover Me Contest"

"Excellent job. Vocals and guitar playing right on the money. You displayed your own artistry and take on the song very well. Good emotion too. Overall great performance." - Dan McLoughlin - The Push Stars

My international musical career started in 2004 when I recorded my very first song in English - Sins - which became part of a compilation that included many other bands from São Paulo/Brazil. Being excited by the positive feedback, I decided to record a 5-song EP, entitled Life, so I returned to the studio in 2005 to start the recording process. A few weeks later I headed to Hollywood where I spent 3 months promoting the EP.

As of 2008, I recorded my 2nd EP - entitled Where Everything Comes True - which has received notable critiques and great feedback, and immigrated to Toronto as a composer-songwriter.
For both EP’s, I performed all the guitars, bass guitar, vocals/background vocals and some of the keyboards.

My solo debut album was released digitally on April 27th '11, entitled Something To Hold On To, and it contains 13 tracks. The physical copy was released in stores on March 6th '12, containing a bonus track. The deluxe edition - entitled Something Else To Hold On To - was released digitally on November 24th '11, containing acoustic and previously unreleased tracks.

I have already performed at venues such as The Opera House, Cameron House, Clinton's Tavern, MOD Club and The Rivoli, in Toronto/CA, and Tralf Music Hall, in Buffalo/NY, where I shared the stage with Grammy-Nominated Chris Trapper. Also, 2 online radios - WestSideWill.com and Studio2radio.com – have aired some of my songs; "No Cure" was awarded as Song of the Week on Mike Pinder's Songwars and has led me to the Top 10 Finalists on 100% Music Songwriting Contest; I was a semi-finalist on the UK Songwriting Contest '10 and '11 with the songs No Cure, Sins, Fly Away, Good Times and Great Divide and a finalist on Mike Pinder's Songwars Contest with the songs Sins, Fly Away, No Cure, Alone and Good Times; 'It's Alright' made the top 10 on Song of the Year Contest '11, judged by big music industry names, such as John Mayer, among others.

My musical influences are varied, including the traditional Brazilian style Bossa-Nova, but they are mostly pop-rock/alternative-oriented: Pearl Jam, Lifehouse, Counting Crows, Oasis, Silverchair, Chris Cornell, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Goo Goo Dolls, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, Seal, just to name a few.
