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 artists—many 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) :
