A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF...

I'm Fernanda Froes-Pruett: a natural born artist, who inherited the Music genes from her mother's side of the family.

I'm a musician (singer, songwriter, bassist, guitarist), a music producer and also an entrepreneur, born and raised in the city of São Paulo, Brazil.

I moved from São Paulo, Brazil, to Los Angeles, USA, for the first time, in 1993, when I studied at MI - Musicians Institute, in Hollywood, California, which later led me to attend Santa Monica College, in Santa Monica, California, and also a UCLA Extension Program, in Los Angeles.

I went back to Brazil, where I had my very first record deal with a recording company called "Gravadora Eldorado", and my Music CD "O Seu Dom" was released, in the year of 1997.

Since then, I never stopped playing live gigs - both as a solo artist, and with a band - and also performing alongside some of the most awesome musicians I had the pleasure of meeting, throughout the years. I also spend lots of time recording vocals to other bands and musicians, and countless hours at several recording studios, always making what I love to do the most in my life: Music.

Besides that, I also worked as an Executive Producer through the company Fernanda Fróes Produções Artísticas S/C Ltda, which was founded in 1996, in the city of São Paulo. 

In July of 2012, I moved once again from São Paulo, Brazil, to Los Angeles, in the United States, and my life changed immensely in the following years. 

I got married to Dan Pruett, in 2016, and I'm officially a Permanent Resident of the USA, with a husband, three dogs two cats, a yard, and a beautiful little grove at home. And I'm on my path to the American Citizenship. :)

Now, alongside my husband, I run a production and promotion company, named  Double Feather Productions, in the city of Mount Shasta, California. 

My Music CD "From Brasil" was released in the United States, by the end of 2018, and you can listen to the songs , and also download the songs and/or the whole album, by clicking here

You can listen to my Music here, on this website; you can order the CD online, and it will be shipped to your address (the online order form is coming up pretty soon), and you can also download the songs and/or the whole album, by clicking here

I hope you find some inspiration and joy through the songs I sing.  

Much love, blessings, joy!

SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE "CANCEL CULTURE"

Last year (2020) I decided to delete permanently my facebook pages... first my personal page, and then my music page.

The reason, I was spending a lot of time either updating the pages or responding to the comments, worrying about what I was going to post next, always checking the posts engagement, the promotional campaigns, etc.

I first published my music page on facebook in 2011, and, throughout the years, I got over 18,000 "fans" (people who "liked" my music page), and a lot of family and friends on my personal page. It was a lot of time and effort: lots of pictures, videos, promotional posts, paid ads for my concerts, and lots of "info".

At first it was hard to let it go but, later, it felt kind of a huge relief to not be spending so much time online, and being able to focus an my personal life and health.

But I kept my instagram account.

And then came the American elections, in November of 2020, and I got literally "canceled" on that platform. Instagram deleted my account without ever giving me a reason nor an explanation for that.

I had my profile since 2012, with more than 2,500 pictured and over 20,000 followers. My posts were about music, my shows, nature and my personal life. I got 3 or 4 posts about the election results, and that was it: my account was removed like it's never existed.

I was really upset; I didn't even had a chance to download my pictures (because I didn't happen to have them all on my computer) and I even thought about appealing on the Small Claims Court, but then it all felt like that was gonna be a lot of headache and wasted time.

So, after considering, I decided not to create a new instagram profile. I'll be uploading pictures to my Website, instead. I'll be spending my "online time" taking care of this Website, updating it, interacting with all the people who contact me, the folks who listen to and/or download the songs, and the friends who leave their donations on the "Tip Jar".

And I thank you all for your support!
Love,
:) Fernanda Froes-Pruett

Thinking about that song: 

"You are the sunshine of my life 
That's why I'll always be around 
You are the apple of my eye 
Forever you'll stay in my heart…"
