Brutus Begins - "Hunger Stays"
Brutus Begins is a solo project by Ricardo Temporao, a Portuguese-Canadian musician writer, and director currently based in Toronto. Elements of indie-folk are resampled and synthesized, creating a sonic landscape that blurs the lines between the real and the reconstructed. The songwriting and storytelling remain the heart of a world that mirrors our own - commenting on our vices, ambitions and ultimately our evolution.
Ricardo has fronted bands for over a decade from the New Low, General Staff and Skinny Bitches (which was featured on Alan Cross's blog). In 2005, he released an album under the name “Rick Temporao & the New Low” which received radio airplay across Canada and earned critical acclaim. He's also composed music for short film and television. Ricardo has directed and edited music videos for award-winning musicians Lily Frost, Cedar Park, and Fast Romantics.
Brutus Begins released "Uncanny Valley" to critical praise. It's been described as "as addicting and inviting as a soma hit" and "...one of the most compelling and high quality debuts we've heard in a decade". No More Division
"phenomenal" Canadian Beats Mag "Indie Folk-Rock joins electronic new wave in a modern version of Steve Miller" ... "a juggernaut of a debut". Canadian Music Blog Currently Ricardo and his team are in production - creating videos in support of the album. The first of which will be release in October 2016.s
