Nelson is a self resourced and managed solo electro pop/rock artist who has a lot of fun collaborating with both the local and international community. His drive to add the music industry has resulted in a self exploration beyond his natural ability to write and compose his own music.

Biography

As a Portuguese-born Australian artist, Nelson's music fits somewhat obliquely within the genres of euro pop/rock, electro and dance.

"You Me Us We" was recently ranked in the Top 20 for Pop Up-tempo/Dance category of the 11th Annual "Unisong" International Song Contest, has been accepted to the Uncharted Waters unsigned artist compilation album, and won EQ Song of the Year 2007. His song "You Want Me Don't You?" also achieved a #5 position in Australia's JJJ Unearthed Unsigned charts.

Having gathered global support and interest for his music, Nelson has begun recording his second project and performing across the seas to showcase his new works.

Nelson's commitment to his work shows through his total independence. He is so determined to share his music with as many people as possible that he has, thus far, provided his own financial resources and management of all the aspects of the production that shines into in his excellent showcase of the work of a truly independent musician.

Aside from writing and singing his own music, he also acts and has an interest in film making.

Reviews:

"Every tune this guy makes is magical. It's been a pleasure to see him grow so much this last year as an artist and I really have a ton of faith in his music. If I a million dollars to give away, I'd give it to Nelson. His song 'You Me Us We' is the biggest international hit that the world hasn't heard yet". - Raj Rudolph Editor (Electroqueer Magazine 2007)

"It's the perfect blend of sparkly pop that will make you feel like the world isn't so bad after all." - Hotstufffiles

Lyrics

Naive

Written By: N. Clemente,R. Agostini, R. Agostini

I'm not trying to be cool
But I feel I owe it all to you
If we ever become friends again
I'll try to keep within the rules

I'm just saying, I'm your invention
I'm replaying every word you say
I'm not making and invitation
But it would be nice if you could stay

I'm not about to do anything crazy
Its a simple kind of need
I'm not about to say anything shady
I guess I'm just a bit naive

When I put pen to paper
I said it wasn't meant to be
But as you know sometimes
You need to let it all run free

So I'm standing and admiring
Just one more song and then I'll leave
Some say my time is expiring
But I won't care if you believe

I'm not about to do anything crazy
Its a simple kind of need
I'm not about to say anything shady
I guess I'm just a bit naive

Now I'm standing at your door
I know we've been through this before
I'm done. As far as I can tell
You're never going to ring my bell

Am I just naive?
Am I too naive?
Should I leave?

A Sign

Written By: N. Clemente

What are we doing here?
I don't know nobody here
Please let us out of here
Please leave me alone

Its getting colder now
And we're getting older now
So are we together now
Or is it all over now?

I'm so confused, abused
Used and re-used
You like to tell me lies
Disguised as the truth
You'll say you'll show but its not go
You've got to make up your mind

If you can't decide
Then I've decided
That you and I
Are no longer tied in
Maybe this is a sign
That you can't deny this from me

I'm wrong you're always right
And you never start the fights
Now come on, don't punish me
For something that I've never done

If you can't decide
Then I've decided
That you and I
Are no longer tied in
Maybe this is a sign
That you can't deny this from me

I'm ready to go
I'm sick and tired of working hard for nothing
See? I'm all worked up because of you

You Me Us We

Written By: N. Clemente,J. Tauber, J. Tauber

You. Me. Us.
We are two lights on a path
They crossed by mighty fast
The gravity we hold
A story never told

I believe that what we had
Was something so beautiful
Dont you think that what we share
So long ago. Beautiful

We found a home in an open place
The vast unknown in a pure embrace

You. Me. Us.
We are two stars high above
Eternal binding love
The battle we have won
A journey just begun

I believe that what we had
Was something so beautiful
Dont you think that what we share
So long ago. My beautiful

Im glad how things turned out in the end
Its sad but hey, now were closer friends
Oh. Its true

Now youre gone to where you belong
And I am here.
Just waiting here
If this song is where I belong
Then I am there. Everywhere

If you hold me now I will ask for more
It feels right somehow like an open door

You Want Me Don't You?

Written By: N. Clemente,R. Agostini, R. Agostini

I walk around all night
For someone right for me
You're blocking out my view
Rethink your strategy

You've got to put in some more
Put in some time
If you want to be with me

I see you're burning inside
You keep throwing me lines
I'm higher than you can reach

You want me dont you?
I can see it in your eyes
Don't make a mockery of me
Your body tells me no lies
You've made your move
Now you're waiting for my cue
But baby you're not what I'm looking for

If I see the one that I want
There's nothing stopping me
There's no need to flaunt it
Rethink your strategy

You've got to put in some more
Put in some time
If you want to be with me

I know it isn't your fault
As you plan your assault
I'm bringing you down to your knees

You want me dont you?
I can see it in your eyes
Don't make a mockery of me
Your body tells me no lies
You've made your move
Now you're waiting for my cue
But baby you're not what I'm looking for
You simply won't do

It's All My Fault

Written By: N. Clemente,R. Agostini, R. Agostini

What is it? What is this that came over me?
An eternal wanting for what's not meant to be
The music slowed and then it happened so fast
I touched your heart and then it turned into glass

Accusations of hidden love
I want freedom I've had enough

It's all my fault and when I'm old
I'll fall on my knees
I'll break my bones against the wall
So forgive me please

It's all my fault and when I'm old
I'll fall on my knees
I'll break my bones against the wall
So forgive me please

My sixth perception has never left me so blind
The common sense have-must been stuck in rewind
You played the field to make another home run
Before you strike you set the phasors to stun

My intuition is killing me
You won't reveal what is plain to see
You're admitting with your eyes
To keep the peace I'll believe your lies

90 Days

Written By: N. Clemente,R. Agostini, R. Agostini

90 days until you find me fight the moral itch
you're closing in right behind me but I cannot resist
you worry about my lack of ethics. absorb them through my skin
in my mind im so above this. too stubborn to give in

ill never give in, so let me in
im in this to win. its in my skin

the insider lies within us all
a desire to rise. when we fall
and you will know this stranger sings like summer love
you will know the danger feels like summer love

90 days until you find me cratch the moral itch
you're closing in right behind me but I cannot resist

i cannot resist a love like this
its not hard to miss the luring lips.
the danger zone

the insider lies within a song
a desire to rise. when you fall
you will know this stranger sings like summer love
you will know the danger fields of summer love

oh im in to win
its in my skin
im in to win
so lets begin

Unsaveable

Written By: Nelson Clemente

When you're going round
Knowing very well
When you hear that sound
A devastation bell

When you''re fallen still
Like the silence of a grave
The run in paper mill
Where everyone behaves

Alone in solitude, there's only you
Your thoughts and all their stains
A soul untameable. Nothing to lose
The one thought that remains

Am I unsaveable?
Am I lost in loneliness?
Am I untameable?
Does the love feel dangerous?

It's consuming me like a canopy
Covering the sun
Am I unsaveable?
Is there more I could have done?

I've lost faith in you
Like the desert feels the cold
There is nothing more I can do
But time and getting old

And the line, it passes through me
I catch a tepid flow
I've denied myself the will to die
I'm never letting go

Am I unsaveable?
Am I lost in loneliness?
Am I untameable?
Does the love feel dangerous?

Am I unsaveable?
Am I lost in loneliness?
Am I untameable?
Does the love feel dangerous?

It's consuming me. This can not be
We've only just begun
Am I unsaveable?
Is there nowhere left to run?

You're a Star

Written By: N. Clemente

From the moment you cast your spell
I've been swimming in a wishing well
As your fingers caress my lips
I just can't resist

You know something has begun
In a moment we are one
As the sun retreats to night
You become the light

You're a star
Yes you are
You're a star
Yes you are

The incredible trust we share
It's a love affair
Just accepting we're the same
An adventure that we've gained

The attraction feels so right
In the dark you are my light

'Cause you're a star
Yes you are
You're a star
Yes you are

Nothing's going to bring us down
We have never travelled this far
Nothing's going to stop us now
Nobody can change who we are

(Can you feel us spinning now?)

You're my star
Yes you are
You're the star

No Protection

Written By: N. Clemente

In time assigned they find you
Behind the line you fire at me
How we used to be

Our minds they bind each other
In kind we find another clue
Yeah, something new to stew

You offer no protection
I only feel rejection
Hesitating. You're already breaking down
You offer no protection

This time the line is higher
And I'm assigned to lie again
Another where and when

Take two I knew was coming
Redo the view the drum in me
I still do not agree

You offer no protection
I only see deception
Hesitating. You're already breaking down
You offer no protection

Now let me show you how it feels
I know it's hurting but there's no time to heal

There's no protection baby
There's no protection
I know it's hurtin' baby
But no protection
You offer no protection baby
You offer no protection

Deeper Water

Written By: Nelson Clemente

You're searching for an answer in black and white
While everyone is moving at the speed of light

There's something on your mind
But you're afraid to let go
And echoes in your voice are begging me to follow

So we dive into deeper water
There's no time to talk about the fear

I just wanna get closer to you
More of this before we part
I'll show you how much I feel you
When reminiscing's not enough

In deeper water

I'm caught between a landslide and your regret
But when I try to leave it feels like a death

There's nothing I can say to change your mind
I wish I had the strength turn the tide

Where we dive between the sheets and layers
Through night we'll paint the perfect grey

So won't you let me get closer to you
Some more of this before we part
I need to show you how much I feel you
Cause reminiscing's not enough

In deeper water

I've lost track of time
While you've been losing faith in us
Drowning out the sound of the ocean

The Crown

Written By: N Clemente

One look at you. How can I endure?
Stuck in a mood and needing a cure
You call my name and leave me behind
You might be tame but you're losing your mind
And I'm sworn to the riding sun
And I'm torn. Don't know where to run
So I scratch and scene to higher ground

Now I'm taking the crown
And I'll never give it back
Yeah, I'm taking the crown
Be the leader of the pack
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown

As you hurt I'll pretend to love you
I will court, entertain and be fool proof
There's a ramp at the top of the tower where my heat is locked away

'Cause I've taken the crown
And I'll never give it back
Yeah, I've taken the crown
Be the leader of the pack
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown

Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Yeah I've taken it
And you'll never get it back
Yeah, I've taken the crown
Be the leader of the pack
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown
I'm taking the crown the crown the crown
Yeah I'm taking the crown
