Album Notes
Paulo Muniz is an independent artist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He sings mainly original brazilian music (bossa nova, samba) and has got as far as Japan with his albums. This kind of music have been well-represented worldwide through out the years by names like A.C. Jobim, Ivan Lins and Sérgio Mendes and has now this new representative. If you are interested in latin music or jazz, you will certainly feel attracted by his songs.

He was born in february 27th, 1976 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he lived all his life. By the age of twelve he began studying music and performing when he was fifteen. But something would delay his musical career: Medical School. In 1995, he entered the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) to be a doctor (psychiatrist) but quit three years later. He got back then into the music field, where he is right now.

In 1999, his career as a music producer began when he had the oportunity to compose a soundtrack for a theatre play. After that, he composed lots of jingles and soundtracks for a TV channel (Canal Futura) as well as other theatre play and producing became one of his main activities. That was when he studied arranging and orchestration during those years, which helped him to increase his musicality.

2002 was an year dedicated mainly to performings at music festivals in Brazil. He was present in more than fifteen through out that year. Also, in this year he first experimented with home recording, when he recorded his twenty-six-song first album called Compositor, but never released. Two years later, he decided to record Eu comigo, a twelve-song album, composed, played and produced by him still in his homestudio. However, this one was also never officially released.

During the following years, he worked as assistent musical producer for several TV shows in Brazil. Those jobs were mainly inside the studio and brought to him most of his experience as a sound engineer. During one of those TV productions, by the end of 2005, started to produce what would be his first released album.

Dated 2006, Trying to fool destiny was his first album, with ten original songs, produced and played by a few brazilian top musicians and him. It was, by far, his biggest challenge. Soon, this album began to be sold in Japan and in 2007 was given a special japanese edition, with diferent cover and bonus tracks.

Still in 2007, he finished his second album called Sine qua non, released only in Japan through label Production Dessinee. He is currently preparing the recordings for his third album, to be released in early spring 2009.
