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.
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.
