Overcoming shyness and a huge culture shock from moving to the US from Luanda, Ballad has managed to
adapt to the culture through modeling Michael Jackson and listening to the radio. He learned a singing style full of emotion from Marvin Gaye. Ballad took advantage of not having many friends growing up and used all his free time to write poems. Young Ballad would also turn the radio on, grab his imaginary microphone and put on a show for all his “fans”. Some of his best performances were in front of the bathroom mirror. He finally found his voice and confidence and has been grinding away writing and recording music. Ballad stays busy writing original content, and traveling to collaborate with other artist as serious about their work as he is.
Ballad takes on the challenge to bring timeless music into the picture, unlike songs these days that tend to fade away. He strives for his music to be enjoyed by generations to come. Ballads are poetic love songs that accomplish longevity because they relate to the world. Ballad makes music that will last forever just like the greats that have done it before him.
