I’m a Rio de Janeiro native bassist/composer/arranger active in the World Music, Pop/Rock and Jazz scenes. Graduated on upright bass in ‘94 at Uni-Rio Conservatory, I play any bass (upright, electric, fretless and synth) and have 20+ years of experience recording and touring with many of Brazil's top recording artists and leading my own projects - currently the Notre Jam jazz quartet, Pedigree Dogs classic pop quintet and the Bicho Músico band (my own original material).
I was also the bassist on the first season of the popular TV show The Voice Brasil (aired on 2012), and acted as bassist and music director for the TV series Claro Q É Rock during it's two seasons (aired on 2005 and 2006).
My credits on both recording sessions and tours include:
Frejat, Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, Simone, Ney Matogrosso, Maria Gadú, Ana Carolina, Marcos Valle, Lulu Santos, Barão Vermelho, Lobão, Leoni, Paulinho Moska, Serjão Loroza, João Sabiá, Lokua Kanza, Avi Wisnia, among others.
On 2014 I put together my own professional home studio, a "creative bunker" I call 8VB (reads "an octave bellow"), from where I operate, recording bass tracks for artists from all over the globe, composing and producing music, writing horn and strings arrangements for other artists and producing tracks for diverse artists.
