I take my songwriting very seriously. Its not my job, its not my shallow, vain attempt to be something I'm not. I've been creating poems and songs since I can remember. Its what I am at my core. These songs are real - they are lived in - the suffering, joy, truth and connection - my soul reaching out to everyone. I sincerely believe that when people create for "the art of it" they are artists. Its that simple and that complex. My best to you all - Mario
P.S. I put some personal thoughts under the "lyric" tab.
