“Soul Kitchen” – Nino Augustine
“I try to do what I call fearless music, which really means creating music without boundaries. I try not to fit my music into any category, because I want to create something different every time I record,” Augustine elaborated when ask about his process of recording. “It’s been a long, constant struggle with music that keeps me in love with it until this day. Some days I wake up in love with music I’ve recorded, and I might go to sleep hating it. I’m very sensitive with my craft because I truly love what I do, and I hope you can feel that when you listen to it.”
