A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF, FAMILY PICTURES, OUR PETS, SOME OF OUR CELEBRATIONS AND SPECIAL MOMENTS TO SHARE...
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 singer, songwriter, bassist, guitarist and music producer, 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, 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.
I hope you find some inspiration and joy through the songs I sing.
Much love, blessings, joy!
:) Fernanda Froes-Pruett
CELEBRATING 9 YERAS IN CALIFORNIA ON JULY, 2021
Yes, I'm celebrating nine years in California!
I arrived in Los Angeles on July 8th of 2012, and that's when my American journey has begun...
I first lived at a hotel (The Inn at Marina Del Rey) on 737 Washington Boulevard. I was there for a couple of months, while I was looking for a place to rent. It was right by Venice Beach and the Marina Del Rey, so I would go for walks at the Venice Canals almost every day... Totally awesome place to be, for sure!
Then I rented a bedroom at an apartment in Hollywood, on 5030 W Maplewood Ave (off of Wilton and Western; between Beverly and Melrose)... I could see the Hollywood sign from my bedroom and the kitchen window.
I moved from Hollywood to Palms in 2013. Palms is the neighborhood I lived at, between 1993 and 1994. My address, back then, was 10751 Rose Ave, off of Overland.
This time around, though, I lived on 3406 Glendon Ave, off of Palms Blvd, parallel to Overland... Same zip code: 90034. That's by far my favorite place to live in Los Angeles, and it's always gonna be home to me...
In 2016, I moved from L.A. to Mount Shasta, in Northern California, and the rest is history... I got married and now live in a house surrounded by trees, with my husband and our pets.
Nine years have passed and I this is my life now...
This picture is from september of 2020, in Venice Beach: one of my favorite places ever!!!
