Ato (1994) is a country folk singer songwriter coming from Madrid (Spain). Since he was 12 years old he started to play and explore different instruments like banjo, bass, guitar and saxophone and writing his own songs. However, due to his shy personality it was not until he was 20 years old that he started showing his work and playing at different locations. Fed with confidence due to the reaction and support of his close fans he produced his first album “Fools”.
After the release of Fools Ato met with Ronald de Waard, a bass player with over 15 years of live experience. After years of traveling the world, trying to conquer at least some parts of it with music, he came to his senses and realized that the only place worth conquering is someone’s heart and/or a dance floor. After reshaping his life, he ventured out again and saw enough of his own personality and musical wish to move people reflected in Ato to form a tight friendship.
Together they began a project that explores the combination of soul and modern folk. With a heavy load on the lyrics and the rhythmic bass they created a dynamic story telling music style.
