My brother Matt is in the group Alarm Will Sound. He has fun traveling all over the world, living in Brooklyn, went to school in London, and that musician personality... what is it... laid back, exasperated, thoughtful, intense?
I'm two years older than him & he just celebrated a birthday. Let's say he's 21-ish.
I went to NY to see him play Carnegie Hall. Not only did he play his instrument, he sang. His voice was gravely and strong. The last time I remember him singing was along with a Michael Jackson album in his room as a boy. He was not only singing, he had the moves. He stopped quickly when I caught him. Aren't those the best moments? He was so cute.
How my little bro has grown up. On our last trip to see him, we all went to a drag queen bar - Lucky Cheng's - and sang karaoke with our mom, harmonizing to Stayin' Alive. We rocked the house. Seriously.
(I just heard Robert singing to his ipod this morning. It was great. He's one I can never convince to sing karaoke. Even when we're out of the country! How cute are the shy types?)
I love how Matt's living his dream. You can check out his crazy blog here and his avant garde group Alarm Will Sound here! Happy birthday Mateo.
He's the one on the left with the french horn. Wasn't it obvious?
