My Alley featuring Andre Matos

Ouça abaixo duas músicas da banda portuguesa My Alley com a participação especial do Andre:

Turning over a new page in his musical life, in 2008 André Prista started his endeavor by creating a special project. He began by collaborating with Camilo Simões, a friend whom he had worked with in the past and a promotional disk with a couple of demo songs were born.

Soon after, was decided to pre-produce the first music work of the band so, some music-friends temporarily joined Prista and Camilo to help with advertisements while assisting with live performances and studio work. The audio quality was so great that the band decided to go to USA, next to the Grammy Award Winner Bob Katz and master the pre-production songs to present them to the listeners.

As of late 2010, important steps had to be made to make “My Alley” a full-on band. This consisted of a change in the band line up which recruited the talents of João Martins and Carlos Rodrigues who teamed up with the two founding members.

– In January 2011, the band “My Alley” was born –

Feeling confident with their results, it was time to start working on their first masterpiece, titled “Hope”. André Prista was responsible for all the lyrical concept, musical creation, direction, and production on the album that featured special guests like Andre Matos (Andre Matos solo, Symfonia), Henning Basse (Sons of Seasons, Metalium) & Rafael Bittencourt (Angra, Bittencourt Project). In the end the album was mastered by Jorge Barata and Bob Katz. The first full-length CD titled “Hope” was finalized and is currently available.

The future remains bright for “My Alley”. In the meantime, the band continues to be available at various venues for live performances whenever the opportunity presents itself.

Fiore Rouge is my old (but still very active - in fact, more than Janus :P) blog (I started it back in 2005). Mentalize is a fan-made website (since 2005). if you wish to contact me for any reason, visit my blog and leave a comment OR see email above (top left) - no, my name's not Andre - actually, I'm not even a guy! LOL Long story... O Janus Aureus é meu blog pessoal - escrito em português - ainda sem muito conteúdo, pois foi começado no final de dezembro de 2011. Já o Mentalize foi aberto em 2005 e está escrito em várias línguas *rs* Privilegio o uso do inglês ali porque o pessoal estrangeiro não tem muitas informações sobre o AM. Quem quiser entrar em contato comigo por qualquer motivo, deixe um comentário nos meus blogs ou use o email que está aí em cima à esquerda (e não, eu não sou o Andre - aliás, sou mulher!).
