WE BLESS THIS MESS

We Bless This Mess“ is a project created by the musician and tattoo artist Nelson Graf Reis, a guy moved through his passions and beliefs. Influenced by his punk-rock environment, WBTM arises by the need to explore the premise “less is more” and the desire to externalize a true positive consciousness to the world: “We breathe, we’re alive. This is the greatest gift and it’s simple”, Nelson adds. 


A trip to Brazil, back in 2014, resulted in the recording of the debut EP “Love and Thrive” at FM2 Audio Studios (in Brasilia). Many live gig’s followed, some with band, some solo: In the first year alone „We Bless This Mess“ played 49 dates from north to south of Portugal and also dates in Germany and England to promote “Love and Thrive” and the single after called “Contemplate”. 


The wish to realize their musical projects themselves, led Nelson and his brother Marcelo to found their own independent (DIY) record label “Oh Lee Records“ in early 2016. Aiming to promote maximum cooperation between the artists, Oh Lee Records organized some mini-tours (between Portugal and the UK) with other folk-punk and country-rock singer-songwritters connected to the label.

Nelson went to play the biggest European showcase events Reeperbahn Festival 2016 (Hamburg) and Eurosonic Noorderslag 2017 (Groningen), flew straight to the USA to play at SXSW (Texas) and Indie Music Week A2IM (NY), travelled with the band towards Italy for Arezzo Wave Love Festival and to France for Europavox.
