Daniela’s grandfather Paulo Soledade, George Gershwin, Charles Trenet, Marcos Valle and Marcelo Camelo.
IN HER OWN WORDS
“I'm so excited to announce that I am following my dream and recording an album! Music has always been my number one passion in life and now is the right time to share it with the world. The album will be called A Moment of You
and it will be full of love and Bossa Nova, but I can't do it alone! I ask you to support me and my journey. So please pre-order a CD or LP, choose a perk, or support any way you can, and enjoy the return of Bossa Nova and the best of Brazilian Music!
I am Daniela Soledade, a musician from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I was born and raised in a musical family, growing up with Samba, Bossa Nova, and other Brazilian rhythms and influences. My grandfather, Paulo Soledade, helped create Brazilian music foundations, composing with Tom Jobim, Vinícius de Moraes, Toquinho, Baden Powell and others in the pioneering phase of bossa nova. My father Paulinho is an artist-producer whose resume includes work with Ivan Lins
and Gilberto Gil
. The Bossa Nova runs deep in my veins!
I grew up in Rio in a family of musicians, basically, on both sides—artists, actresses, ballerinas, musicians. And I grew up in recording studios. My father would ask me to sing on whatever he was working on, such as TV shows for the main network in Brazil.
The intimate, romantic aesthetic of true Bossa Nova is what I'm focusing on. When I think of Bossa Nova, I think of Joao Gilberto
and this really quiet aesthetic. When I sing these songs, I am trying to inhabit a unique, perfect moment that the musicians and the listeners share. A Moment of You
before it is released, you can help us make A Moment of You
and help us get it out there for new people to hear!BACK THIS PROJECT
