Bruno Santos - "Time to Tell"

A little late-evening artist endorsement time!

One of my close buddies from my Saudi days and fellow third-culture-kid friend of mine, Bruno Santos, has just released his debut solo album, Time to Tell, which was written, performed, produced, engineered and edited (well, basically he pretty much did everything) entirely by himself.

This charismatic polyglot (whom I've actually seen successfully sweet-talk AirFrance employees into letting him take on 100+kgs of music equipment without extra fees) is currently based in São Paulo after countless relocations around the world.

Anyway, I thought I would mention him here not only because he's a friend but also because he's a brilliantly talented artist about whom you could later brag that you've "totally been into him since he released his first album." To me, he kind of sounds like a one-man Matchbox Twenty with a twist. A Brazilian Jason Mraz. Or a mishmash of lot of my favourite artistsmany of them introduced to me by Bruno himself at the green age of 15. Anyway, seeing (or listening) is believing. Here's one my favourite tracks on the album, "Not the End" (free download available on his website) :

If you like what you hear, you can buy Bruno's new album at CD Baby or download it at iTunes.

ps. Mama likes Bruno's music too!


  1. His voice sounds a bit like James Blunt... sorry, please don't kill me. I actually don't mind James Blunt! Sorry. T_T

    So, this is the second artist you're friends with. Worth gloating about, that's for sure! :D And I imagine you half turned away from the desk, whistling, while your friend uses his charm to get his luggage on... hahahahaa XD

  2. Hey, that's a compliment, isn't it? :)
    I'm somehow surrounded by so many talented musicians that I haven't even mentioned here! How'd that happen? :D
    And yes, I was standing quite a ways away from the check-in counter as back-up just in case anything happened (at least I was almost positive that he'd have to pay SOMETHING), and I was flabbergasted when they took all his stuff and he came walking back with a smile. Only Bruno!

  3. Hey there, You've done an excellent job. I'll certainly digg it and personally
    recommend to my friends. I am confident they will be benefited from this website.

  4. Wow, spam (I was still subscribed to this thread)! The good thing is that this means your blog is popular enough to be noticed by spambots (they leave the small ones alone). Woo! :p

    1. HAHAHA! Thanks Tze, that definitely makes me feel better! Come ooooon spam!
