My name is Gabo Agustin, I was born on April 8, 1987, in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina. I started playing the guitar during my teen years, learning on my own, motivated mainly by the love I felt for many classic rock bands, such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, and Hendrix.
What started as a hobby became something I dedicated many hours of my time to, and I quickly started composing my own songs and realizing that music was something that would stay with me for the rest of my days. Over time I formed different musical projects, including Lyla Criff, an alternative rock band of which I would be a part for seven years, and other projects in which I worked as a guitarist and bassist. The fact that not having formal musical training helped me a lot to develop improvisation and creativity intuitively.
Some years later, I started my workshop which I named Funkadelic, where I made percussion instruments, guitars, ukuleles, and musical accessories for about ten years. This made me approach music from another perspective and it helped me meet many musicians of different styles.
As time went by, little by little, I was getting closer to music production, and my home studio became an increasingly frequented place where I could produce my projects and also those of other bands with whom I was friends. At the same time, my interest in other musical styles, such as soul, hip hop, and R&B, expanded to the point that I began to study piano and later saxophone.
In 2020, during the pandemic, I finished my own EP, which was entirely composed, recorded, mixed, and mastered at home in my studio and released in 2022 under the name Lou Fai. In parallel, I started working as a session musician, music content creator, and other freelance jobs on platforms like Fiverr, Donner Music, and Upwork.
Currently, I’m still playing keyboards, guitar, and sax on some of my projects, working as a session musician and jingle composer and developing my skills in music and music production as well. Through my experience, I hope I can help you with some of the doubts you may have regarding the wonderful world of music.
