Biography

It seems not long ago that Lili Rocha was singing in the streets and squares of her small native town in Brazil. Lili’s great passion for music led her to be named the winner of the prominent “Gabriela” talent show in Ilhéus, Brazil, where she outshined other hopeful young singers. From there, Lili began the journey of a lifetime, performing shows throughout Portugal, Italy, Switzerland. Lili Rocha fell in love with the essence of Europe, and made a permanent move to Switzerland, continuing to pursue her dreams. Between time spent working and touring in her new environment, Lili particularly gained huge support from the Italian community of Switzerland. Soon after, Lili attended Accademia di Musica Italiana and studied under maestro Antonio Guglielmi with whom she also recorded her first songs. As her career progressed, Lili Rocha was discovered by producer, Matthias Oertle, with whom she works closely on many of her successful projects. Not far away from her humble roots, Lili’s ambition and creative drive continue to further her toward achieving her dreams.

Lili Rocha’s four released albums, containing songs in Portuguese, Spanish and Italian, have found great success, reigning in a dedicated fan base for this adult contemporary/soft rock songstress, with over 21 million profile views on MySpace. The first album, Me Deixa Sonhar (2003), boasts modest success in Lili’s native Brazilian market, and sold over 80,000 records in Italy. Lili promoted her first album back in her hometown, appearing in numerous TV and live performances throughout Brazil’s largest cities, Sao Paolo, and Rio. Lili Rocha's growing success left audiences anxiously awaiting her next release. The following year, Lili launched her sophomore album Recomeçar (2004) in Europe. Recomeçar (2004) did not fall short of the fans’ expectations, going gold in Italy with 40,000 copies sold. Lili’s third studio release, titled Amuleto (2007), turned out to be a lucky charm indeed. Shortly after its release, Lili Rocha embarked on the Amuleto concert tour, performing for thousands of frenzied fans and traveling to many major cities throughout Italy and Spain. The spirit of over eighty shows along the tour was captured and compiled as Lili’s first live album, Lili Rocha Live (2009). This album, released as both CD and DVD, was another huge hit, going gold in Italy and showcasing her true talent as a live performer.

Lili Rocha recently completed her first English album in the US, set to expand her fan base and break into the American music scene. After some time spent between Florida, New York, and Los Angeles, she completed two music videos, which are soon to be released for fans this Spring!

Lyrics

I'm Alright

Written By: Matthias Oertle

Every night they line up
Outside my dressing room
Some bring me roses
Some promise me the moon

We sit down and talk a while
Then we slip out the back door
And after I am done with him
I dress up and do one more

But I’m alright
I’m alright
Yes, I’m alright
As long as I can keep
My hopes and dreams alive

But I’m alright
I’m alright
I’m alright
As long as I can keep
My hopes and dreams alive

I offer them a taste of love
And a pocket full of lies
A reason to stay alive
I’m a healer in disguise

Some day I’ll meet the man
Who will fall for me
He’s bound to come my way
He will set me free

But I’m alright
I’m alright
I’m alright
As long as I can keep
My hopes and dreams alive

But I’m alright
I’m alright
Yes, I’m alright
As long as I can keep
My hopes and dreams alive

I’ve been waiting for so long
Through all the hard times I’ve been holding on
I know at last the sun will shine
And God will give me what is mine

But we’re alright
We’re alright
We’re alright
As long as we can keep
Our hopes and dreams alive

But we’re alright
We’re alright
Yes, we’re alright
As long as we can keep
Our hopes and dreams alive

From Every Tear A Pearl is Born

Written By: Matthias Oertle and John Watts

We weren’t talking much lately
We weren’t fighting it out
Something’s missing between us
Something’s dragging us down

I don’t care if I am guilty
It don’t matter who’s to blame
One of us has got to break the ice
One of us has got to make a change

‘Cause baby there’s one thing I know
Water cuts through any stone
Every wave lands on the shore
From every tear a pearl is born

We go back so many years
Faced together every storm
What if we could turn back time
Tell me baby where did we go wrong

‘Cause baby just remember this
All it takes is just one kiss
Every wave lands on the shore
From every tear a pearl is born

‘Cause baby there’s one thing I know
Water cuts through any stone
Every wave lands on the shore
From every tear a pearl is born

I don’t believe this is the end of the road
I don’t believe our story’s been told
We just need some time on our own
To figure out which way to go

‘Cause baby just remember this
All it takes is just one kiss
Every wave lands on the shore
From every tear a pearl is born

‘Cause baby there’s one thing I know
Water cuts through any stone
Every wave lands on the shore
From every tear a pearl is born
From every tear a pearl is born
From every tear a pearl is born

Message of Love

Written By: Matthias Oertle and John Watts

The first light of day
Is falling on my face
And though I know you’re far
I feel more than a trace

Warm summer breeze
Blowing through my hair
Thought I heard your voice
You were not there

When I open my eyes
I find the dream is gone
But its message lingers
Yeah, it lingers on and on

A message of love
Travelling long distance
A message of love
From heart to heart

Wanna feel your touch
Every single day
Wanna see you smile
Love you every way

Every song I hear
Brings me back to you
You are always near
In everything I do

When I open my eyes
I find the dream is gone
But its message lingers
Yeah, it lingers on and on

A message of love
Travelling long distance
A message of love
From heart to heart

When I open my eyes
I find the dream is gone
But its message lingers
Yeah, it lingers on and on

A message of love
Travelling long distance
A message of love
From heart to heart
