TIAGO IORC

“It was Tiago’s voice that first drew me in. I had only heard a few songs from his debut album but there was a fragility and honesty in his voice that I connected with. I intentionally didn’t study that album too much once I knew we were going to work together because I didn’t want to feel I had rules about what genre to keep him in, or what production constraints we had to adhere to based on that first effort. I could sense there was immense potential in Tiago and his band, but I wanted to move them away from that clean, careful sound and see the music evolve towards something darker, grittier and more complex, which I felt would make his unusual voice stand out even that much more. 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

Tiago’s family moved to Cambridge, England, when he was just 10 months old, and Britain became his home for the first years of his life. He was 8 – and already back to his native country – when he touched the acoustic guitar for the first time. He learned the basics to the instrument having lessons with the mother of a neighbor of his who, in exchange, had English lessons with Tiago’s mother. Despite having no musical background in his family, Tiago showed increasing interest towards music. At age 10, while living in the States – Raleigh, NC – his father agreed on giving him his first acoustic guitar.

Linda feito manhã
Feito chá de hortelã
Feito ir para o mar

 

I’m feeling like my life has just begun …..And I’m feeling fine
I feel so alive, singin’ …I’m feeling like my life has just begun
And I’m feeling fine  …….So fine, fine, fine

When All Hope Is Gone

Wait a minute, step back
Get a little closer
We’re just a little off track
Trying to get it all done
I think I’ll pour another glass
I’m feeling kind of sober
We’re just a little off track
Trying to get it all done

On it goes
And still nobody knows
What we’re all fighting for
Soon when all hope is gone
We’ll find love

Wait a minute, step back
See what’s going over
People watching our backs
Protect us from each other
It’s just another way
Of sitting back
And blaming others
We’re just
A little off track
Trying to get it all done

On it goes
And still nobody knows
What we’re all fighting for
Soon when all hope is gone
We’ll find love

There’s More To Lif

When you’re miles away
That’s okay
I don’t need you closer to say:
I want you
It’s never safe to say
It’s over
Day after day
Just look on the bright side
I see life in your eyes
I want you
It’s never safe to say:
It’s over

Don’t try to break me
Don’t try to save me
It won’t be easy to try
Don’t try to break me
Don’t try to save me
It won’t be easy to try
Don’t try to make me
Get high on something
I’ve had
This feeling inside
For so long
