"Hot Hits: Renato Goda"

He is our bet for 2010. Real man, as we were hoping for. And he sings and writes songs we wnat to hear! - Elle


"The pooch dog"

Bold singer and sofisticated songwriter, Godá releases new album for fine tastes...His songs of love and hate and his voice place him into a noble lineage of composers such as Serge Gainsbourg, Tom Waits or Leonard Cohen. And the whole thing flows in a cool vibe. In Godá´s work, the scenic atmosphere plays a role as central as the music. - Folha de Sao Paulo - Brazil´s largest newspaper


"Renato Goda launches nes album"

“Brazil´s Cult sound! Renato Godá is the sound that pleases everyone! It´s impossible not to scream bravo when seeing him perform live. The sound that we all want to hear, dance and applaud.” 
- Rolling Stone


"Bet: Renato Goda"

Renato Goda, takes us to the smoky world of a late-night cabaret in the middle of Sao Paulo.

Apart from the lyrics, metric and meanig of his rhymes his music contain the dramatic intensity of the tango and Balkan music (he is Goran Bregovic fan) out of the folk and pop moods la Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Serge Gainsbourg. "I'm not a guy who really is looking for concepts I like the experience," says Goda.

"People forget that the main focus of the music is seen as tacky to talk about love, and everyone likes it. Passions also yield good songs made, "he adds. With the legitimacy of those who really believe what you're saying - or who simply do not care - the singer musically convincing and bypasses direct associations Nelson Gonçalves and followers.

"It´s not poetry, thank god!"

Songwriter Renato Godá knows that good song lyrics have to be simple, clear, straight. That´s why his "Canções Para Embalar Marujos" is one of the best albuns of the new generation.
- Bravo! magazine


"Timoeut Says"

He may sound like he owes more to Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits than Gilberto Gil, but grizzly, new Brazilian singer Renato Goda (here making his UK debut) has pedigree. Working with innovative producer, songwriter and synth collector Apollo Neve (Bebel Gilberto, Seu Jorge), his music ties together strands of cabaret, jazz, folk and chanson into an appetising stockpot of sounds.

Bio

Renato Godá is a singer and songwriter that escapes the clichés expected of a Brazilian musician. Influenced by global tunes and poetry of artists such as Serge Gainsbourg, Leonard Cohen and Emir Kusturica, he manages to give a new flair to his Brazilian roots. The result is a bold and fresh new sound where bossa nova and MPB meet French chanson, eastern European gipsy and pop rock. Born and raised in São Paulo, Godá grew up surrounded by the sounds of popular Brazilian songwriters such as Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque and Roberto Carlos. These influences never left him, even when he became a punk rock band leader later on. Today, his devilish romantic lyrics, the recited, uncompromising and unpretentious singing combined with his diverse sound influences place Godá in a unique style for a Brazilian artist. After a celebrated EP produced by Apollo Nove, Godá has just released his new album “Canções para Embalar Marujos”, produced by Latin Grammy winner Plinio Profeta. The 13 songs were recorded in two days of studio, played live. American sound engineer Roy Cicala (John Lennon, Frank Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, among others) was in charge of the recordings.
Using acoustic instruments, his original and romantic melodies have captured the attention of critics in Brazil and abroad and Godá has been gaining increasing recognition as one of Brazil..s coolest new talents.
