Tiago Iorc (pronounced ee-ork / born November 28, 1985) is a Brazilian musician, singer-songwriter and recording artist. As a child, he lived in England and in the United States — which later determined his choice of singing and writing in English.
In 2007, his unpretentious acoustic single "Nothing but a Song" drew attention to his voice and music and led to the release of his debut album "Let Yourself In". His album was also released in Japan — where "Nothing But a Song" peaked at number 11 on Billboard's Japan HOT 100 Chart — and in South Korea, where the public granted him a Best Foreign Artist Award for his performance at the 2010 Grand Mint Festival.
His second studio album "Umbilical" was released October 2011, and had New York-based Andy Chase as producer.
"Tiago is both a classic and a contemporary soul — combining the best of singers like Nick Drake and bands like Radiohead. I hope people can enjoy getting as caught up in the mastery of his lyrics and his beautiful, textural voice as I have". — Andy Chase
"Brazil's Tiago Iorc has gleaned the glimmering sounds from 90s singer-songwriters past to create a lush landscape of pop escapes. His album, "Umbilical" teeters between somber and sweetness. At once he is yearning lovelorn and at the next turn singing about hope and inspiration. What is most remarkable about the album is that from start to finish it feels like a complete package, a well-thought out travel through Iorc's emotions". — Billboard Discoveries

Let Yourself In
Currently under Universal Records in the Philippines, Tiago Iorc’s debut album, “Let Yourself In”, was released in the first half of 2008. His being exposed to various genres may have influenced his composition and songwriting. Cutting through genres like rock, soul, blues, and acoustic, his songs are very well-crafted with great tunes and really excellent lyrics. His tasteful guitar playing surely hits that sweet spot of everyone who has listened to his music.
A personal favorite would have to be “Fine”, a feel-good song about letting someone in your life and just feeling damn happy with that person. In fact, the album title, “Let Yourself In”, comes from the lyrics of the song. One doesn’t necessarily have to be in love to enjoy the song as the upbeat and fun arrangement already makes it worth listening to. This applies to the entire album as well. His album will certainly appeal to the fans of artists like John Mayer and Matt Wertz.
Although he’s been compared to so many similar artists, there is definitely everything to like about Tiago Iorc. Other than the killer looks, his relatable, fresh songs topped with an amazing voice are still to die for.

In this first album, Tiago sings the classic Beatles' song "Ticket To Ride" as well as the incredible new version of "My Girl". But, the real amazing job is in his own songs. Deeply involved with pop, jazz and blues, Tiago is one of the most promissing new artists in contemporary brazilian music. Amazing album. Buy it with your eyes closed!!!
