Crazy Love Is

Born in Maputo, Mozambique in 1979, Pedro discovered his love for Music at an early age but never knew this would turn out to be his career until he was 20 years old. At the age of 15 Pedro started writing his own songs and in the same period he learnt to play the guitar. Thinking Music wasn’t a profitable career, after finishing school Pedro went and did 6 months of Pharmacy, then a year of Marine Biology only to realize that his true calling was in Music. So he packed his bags and moved to Pretoria, South Africa where he did a 3 year National Diploma course in Jazz, Performance and Sound Technology. After this he went to Los Angeles where he studied for a short period of time at the well known Musicians Institute, where he studied Professional song writing and Production.
