How I joined the band:
Actually that is pretty simple and short to say. I found our drummer Elmar by an ad. We made music together for a while with another name and then founded Azurica back in 2009.

Thanks for that, Paulo!

If the question was "what music do you listen to", my answer were "every kind of music that brings me forward". If I had to say a kind of music, I'd say blues.
I must confess at this topic that I am a musician and so I have an open mind for every style, because you always get to know something new and are able to develop this.
I listen to almost everything from blues and jazz via classical, rock and metal to flamenco, bossa nova and more.
I also learn by listening to music, so diffenrent styles bring new ideas or inspirations and this makes them interesting.
When I just wanna relax, I listen to good old blues or bluesrock. But sometimes I also need hard riffs. ;)
For me there are a lot of diffenrent musicians and artists who inspire me, by which I learn and who help me on. I noted on my way as a musician, that mostly it is the small, relatively unknown people that are around you who teach you a lot more than the big ones. Examples are my former piano teacher or my guitar maker.
But the biggest inspiration in my opinion is: you by yourself. You can learn a lot by other, but moving forward you only do by your own thirst.
Factors are the love to music, the sense of rhythm, the feeling for sounds, a little crazyness and especially the interest in new, unusual and crazy stuff. Alltogether mixed with the urge to harmony.
For these, who are interested, here are a few well-known musicians through which I realize myself. There are a lot more, there are always new ones, but if I were to list them all, the list would never end, there are too many... :D
Joe Satriani, Joe Bonamassa, Steve Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Steve Vai, Jimi Hendrix, Bootsy Collins, Woody Allen, John Petrucci, Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Albert King, Stevie Wonder, Gary Moore, Richie Kotzen, Elton John, John Mayer, Warren Haynes, Phil Collins and so many more…
