On March 1st 2011, exactly one year ago, I had my first meeting with Monica Tomasi, who became my producer. Both Pisceans and obsessed with music, we soon started producing my first solo project, developed with great effort, care and dedication. This Extended Play, baptized as Ouça, actually tells a little about my life story: my desires, passions and choices. Today is March 1st 2012, I’m turning 38 years old and I chose this date for the EP release because, other than being my birthday, it now also symbolizes my rebirth as an artist, singer and composer. We usually receive gifts on our birthday, so I thought it would be thrilling to invert this logic and offer everyone my music as a gift, making it available for free download.
The Extended Play OUÇA is composed by a mixture of soul, funk, gospel and blues. The songs are of my own authoring and reflect some of my main influences: Tim Maia, Cassiano, Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Justin Timberlake, James Brown, Tina Turner, Beyoncé, Tony Bizarro, Ed Motta and Black Rio.
