MUSA: My childhood was a trip. Both of my parents are musicians and I grew up in the French Quarter. I was what New Orleans natives refer to as a "Quarter Rat," and to boot, I was also homeschooled. I would roam the streets while my mother was at work. She's been playing piano in a bar in N.O. for almost 40 years to this day.
My parents let me start going to punk shows by myself when I was 11 or 12. I could walk and hear music on almost every street corner, and I grew up in a home where music was constantly being played.
Why your reference to Brazil?
I'm half Brazilian! My father is from there and lives there. We moved to New Orleans after a small stint in Brazil. I should also mention the few years my mother and I lived in Mexico, Las Vegas, and Hawaii. I think exposure to travel, freedom, autonomy, and music early on made me the person I am today.
And its swamps...
Do you have fun?
