Hello friends

My name is Daniel Catarino, and I'm a singer-songwriter from Portugal.
I've been releasing music on the internet for free since 2006 under several aliases

My own name for my songs in Portuguese
Oceansea for my songs in English
Long Desert Cowboy for the instrumental music I create
and for a while I released my songs in Portuguese as Landfill, back when I was too ashamed to use my own name.

I am also a member of the portuguese hard rock band Uaninauei, folk rock band Bicho do Mato, psychedelic rock band O Rijo, jam band Alentexas, and the experimental band Cajado.
So far, I released 92 songs and instrumentals for free, with very distinct audio quality ranging from terrible to very good.

I was able to create my humble home studio with the money I got from fans who bought my cd's, digital downloads or simply donated it, wanting nothing more in return than what my songs mean to them.

I gave up a good job with a good pay 5 years ago in order to dedicate all my time to writing, recording and performing music, and basically I drove myself to poverty with that decision, because I knew NOTHING about how to make a living out of my music.

Music is so important to me that I cannot envision living without creating it, and I WILL keep on writing songs anyway, but sometimes I just can't afford a new microphone when the old one gets broken, I can't afford to book a studio to record drums or a string quartet, sometimes I can't even afford new guitar strings.

This is an opportunity to support me in order to keep creating music and offer it to the world.

Patreon helps fans support artists they love, in order for them to keep on making new art, so I think it's fair for me to ask for your help, so I can keep making music forever and ever and give it away.
And take my word as someone who has been broke a lot of times - 1 dollar sometimes makes all the difference to someone else! One less coffee for you, one more mouth fed, one more song in the world!

As a Patron you'll get exclusive things that are not available for anyone else according to your pledge amount (see the options below). Occasionally I will also give my Patrons FREE stuff as a big thank you for your support!

If you are not familiar with my music, please go to http://www.danielcatarino.bandcamp.com and scrounge around my discography.
I hope you like what I do and that you find it relevant enough that you can spare a couple of dollars in order to help me create great songs that make you feel good!

Thank you so much! :)
Daniel
