“Brazilian Pierre Aderne’s way groovy bossa nova guitar licks are as smooth as a sweet mango on a parched tongue, his masculine vocals flirting around the ear only add to the sensation that you’re enjoying something extremely naughty”
Belinda Acosta in Austin Chronicle
“The Brazilian music evolutionary line is João Gilbert and Pierre Aderne, follows this tradition. A message in a bottle for advanced listener/ audience . Rims, chorus, mantras, everything is enchanted and peaceful in Pierre Aderne’s music. Enjoy!
