WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE
Hi there! And welcome to my Website!
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 started learning the basics of Music, and also playing guitar, with my grandpa, who was a seasoned Musician. Got my first bass guitar when I was ten, and started playing in a Blues band, as a bassist, at the age of thirteen. Later on, when I was fifteen, I started singing in a couple of bands, and traveled with them to play at festivals and events around the South East of 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.
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, Brazil.
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, here in California, I'm officially a Permanent Resident of the USA, 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 our homestate.
And I hope you find some inspiration and joy through the songs I sing!
